EVGA 02G-P4-2962-KR GeForce GTX 960 Superclocked 2GB GDDR5 128bit, PCI Express 3.0 2 x Dual-Link DVI-I, DP, HDMI, SLI, HDCP, G-SYNC Ready Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Probably the best overall card out there considering key factors for vast majority of users. High performance, efficient, small, quiet, versatile, etc. This performs within 10% of my MSI Gaming GTX 770, but TDP (power usage) is about 125W vs. 250W for the 770. This particular card is very small and only needs one six pin power connector, so you can fit it in small cases and don't need a huge power supply. EVGA cooling is excellent and the card is silent under heavy load. It performs better than the 760, but costs $50 less than those cards. It's also very versatile with 2DVI, HDMI and display port connections and card supports up to 4 monitors.

When you consider low power consumption, low price, it sure makes it enticing to at least consider SLI if not for the 2GB memory limitation which I'll get to later, but as graphics cards continue to evolve this card shows all the characteristics of developers taking advantage of new technology - faster, energy efficient, smaller = better.

Plays almost all titles at 60FPS+ at 1080, and all titles I've tried at 1440 too.

Cons: Hard to really call lack of memory a con because the only way they keep the cost of this card around $200 is 2GB of memory, and to be honest most people like having 4GB, but don't really need it. It would be hard to justify SLI with this kind of card with the 2GB limitation when you could probably build a better overall system by just going with one 970 which would have 4GB, but I'm guessing that eventually they will release a 960 4GB card that will probably be as low as $230, and then it might be worth it, but then, if you are that close in price to a 980, then how do you not go that route?

Other Thoughts: I couldn't be happier with this card. I have three gaming PCs in my house, 2 with 770s and 1 with 780 FTW, and I'm swapping all of them out because my electric bill is ridiculous and this 960 does pretty much everything I need. There are some users that actually need a 970 or 980, but for a majority of users that potential is never fully utilized.

This card is a great options for a lot of people, and in my opinion it's an awesome value considering how many benefits it gives you (performance, energy efficient, quiet, small, variety of display options, etc.).

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-01 RED LED Black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Side window, red LED, smart design, front USB 3.0, mobo base screws are pre-drilled.

Cons: none for a case like this in this price range

Other Thoughts: Really nice case for around $40 if you get it on sale. Lots of features that you typically have to pay at least $70 for. Make no mistake though, this is a budget case, but I like how Corsair seems to really understand their customers, and you can get a case like this with a lot of features that a lot of people look for and they cut corners where they need to in order to bring the price down. It's compact and simple, but that's what you're going to get in a budget case, and I like it. If I want a case all decked out then I'd get a high end obsidian, HAF X or Fractal, but this is a very nice option.

Corsair Gaming K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches

1 out of 5 eggs no textured spacebar 03/05/2015

This review is from: Corsair Gaming K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red LED - Cherry MX Red Switches

Pros: Not what advertised.

Cons: I'm so frustrated that the keyboard I received did not have a textured spacebar. Every picture on the site and the box all show the textured spacebar, yet, the spacebar is NOT textured. I even reviewed the QA on this product and confirmed that 2 people indicated the spacebar was textured, yet, mine isn't. I don't doubt that other people received one, but it is insane that you can spend $130 on a keyboard and the manufacturer/reseller can be so disorganized so as to not provide the same product in every box. I was concerned about the other reviews that mentioned this, but I figured with the QA it was something the manufacturer would have addressed by now - WRONG! Nothing worse than finally pulling the trigger on an expensive item, getting really excited about using it, and then the complete disappointment when you receive something that is just not what you ordered.
