EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card does anything I need. Plays Skyrim with high resolution texture packs with all settings maxed with no problem (as well as other games but thats the best example).

Cons: It gets hot. I haven't had it get hot enough to be a problem so maybe I'm just being picky but I can imagine a smaller case with less efficient cooling may run in to trouble.

Other Thoughts: Its a BIG card which may be an issue for some mobos/cases but not for me.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP4 TH LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with Dual Thunderbolt

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It has two Thunderbolt ports! I haven't used them but I'm glad I have the option. I don't have much to say except that its working as expected and in general seems to keep things cool and running smoothly. Has all the connections I need.

Cons: No cons so far.

AZZA Solano 1000 Black Japanese SECC Steel/Metal mesh in front MicroATX/ATX/Full ATX Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Big. Plenty of room. The fans keep everything cool and they make a bit of noise but its barely noticeable with audio playing. The case is easy to work with. Came with more than enough screws once I found them.

Cons: The hard drive cage(s) are annoying to take out once you have everything in. Not impossible but it takes some effort (and we wouldn't want that).

Other Thoughts: 2 of the fans took some fidgeting to get working but I eventually got them to work. Before I fixed them I contacted AZZA and they sent me two replacements. No questions asked, no charge. I didn't make this a pro or con because it was an annoyance but it ended well.

One slight annoyance which is a little bit of a derp on my part as well is the fact that the screws were not directly visible in the box but were hidden basically inside the protective foam. Took me longer than I'll admit to find them.
