BEST DEAL on a video card PERIOD!
Pros: I purchased this 470 to now have SLI going in my rig. Great card, no complaints here.
Cons: It's a good thing to be wary of recertified cards but this one had not problems and appears untouched. Remember, if you're doing an SLI configuration your temps will rise substantially when you add another 470GTX. The cards usually are very close together and now heat becomes worrisome.
Overall Review: Love the deal, I don't think you can beat the speed or the price.
Pros: This case is HUGE! Solid from top to bottom, plenty of space and everything that one needs for a screaming system build. After moving a x58 motherboard to this monster from a mid-ATX case I am more than thrilled. Easy set up, install and great for cable management and different cooling options.
Cons: Lift with the legs not the back. ;-)
Pros: Super fast. Remember, you don't have to have the latest in video cards and get the same performance. EVGA has software that will OC their cards. This is the second 470 I have purchased.
Cons: The card runs pretty hot, but after reading about it everything is still well within specs.
Overall Review: Just remember that not ALL games are written to utilize SLI. I think that before the SLI set up I was a little decieved by some of the marketing. Just ONE of these cards is just fine for almost anything unless your screen resolution is ridiculously huge!!!
NewEgg great, Game soso
Pros: It's an FPS
Cons: It's a remake of the same ol' stuff you have seen in all the other Call of Duty games. I am surprised they are not forced to come up with something new.
Overall Review: Very sad that they cannot move past this game engine and get something a bit more exciting like Bad Company 2.
