G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Amazing timings, reliability, price

Cons: Discontinued

Other Thoughts: I've had these sticks for years and they've kept up even when used for "hardcore" gaming

Acer GD235HZbid Black / Orange 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 120hz, large screen

Cons: Sharpness too high with no ability to turn it down (reading text will give you headaches), yellowish tint on sides during bright screens, in dark screens (movies, most games, etc) blacks look distorted or "shiny" which dulls colors significantly, red and green ghosting, dead pixel in center of display

Other Thoughts: I need a new monitor as this one is dying. I decided on this Acer for the potentiality of using 3D at a later time, and because it was on sale for what I thought was a steal. I always read negative reviews and think something like "that won't happen to me" or "they don't know what they're talking about", and as I have never had to return a Newegg product before now that mindset has largely been justified.. until now.
The primary problem is somewhat like this: Look at an LCD monitor from too low an angle (instead of your eyes being level with the top of the screen look upon it with you eyes level with the bottom of the screen). You should see things get darker (especially at the top) and colors dull. That is what this monitor looked like all the time.
I planned on using this monitor for movies and games, but no amount of tweaking allowed it to be usable. I was excited to find this gem on sale, but extremely disappointingly had to return it.
On a side note, Newegg *and* their customer service is A+ in my book.

EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Price

Cons: NVIDIA's 600 series is newer and more powerful (and much more expensive)

Other Thoughts: Since NVIDIA's 600 series cards have been out for a while these 500 series cards are a steal given their price:performance ratio. I currently have one 560 Ti that runs all modern games on maximum settings. In a few years instead of buying a new GPU for four-hundred dollars I (or you) can just buy another one of these for a hundred bucks and hook both cards up in SLI.
