Great buy!

NVIDIA SHIELD tablet NVIDIA Tegra K1 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex A15 2 GB Memory 8.0" 1920 x 1200 Tablet Android 4.4 (KitKat) Black
NVIDIA SHIELD tablet NVIDIA Tegra K1 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex A15 2 GB Memory 8.0" 1920 x 1200 Tablet Android 4.4 (KitKat) Black

Pros: Great at what it is designed for. This thing is a complete animal in the tablet world. Gamestream works perfect;y. NVIDIA is slowly integrating more games that allow for kb/m support but the ones I play allow it already so it's great. I bought this specifically for playing diablo 3 when I am on the road as I must travel a lot for work. I play diablo 3 almost flawlessly on torment 6 from 150+ miles away from my rig. I am using a GTX 760 and a generic Comcast xfinity router and it works perfectly.

Cons: Nothing major. You have to be a little tech savvy to set up Gamestream over the internet to use it outside of your own network but other than that its cake.

Overall Review: On a side note, this tablet is not for the faint of heart. If you are just looking for something to mess around on Facebook and twitter or just for watching Netflix, you would likely be better of getting an iPad mini. If you are looking for a purpose built gaming tablet that, yes, is going to require some technical background to use to it's fullest potential, then this is definitely the tablet for you. Seriously, look no further, you aren't going to find better than this short of a gaming laptop, I tried, and even then you will have to spend way more money for a gaming laptop than this.

great

Pros: Works great, cool colors, keeps the case cool.

Cons: This sucker is BIG. I didn't realize how big a 120mm fan is. Seriously, measure your case. This thing is about 3.5 inches square.

SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Used this in a gaming PC build that I did and I couldnt be happier. It is able to power my rig without breaking a sweat. It is powering a GeForce GTX 760 with Twin Frozr fans, a 120mm fan with over 10 LED's in it, and the fan that is built into it is great for helping keep my rig nice and cool.

Cons: It was a real pain trying to get this thing installed in my case. I FORCED it in to a Dell Optiplex 790 Mini Tower. I ended up having to take the MotherBoard completely out.

Fun Game

NVIDIA Gift Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist

Pros: This is a fun game and they added a bunch of new features that werent in past games

Cons: While there were a bunch of new features in this game there were also some features that were repetitive. Same old same old creeping and killing and sneaking at some points.
