Most Favorable Review

@Jeff-This is a 1080 monitor, READ DIRECTIONS!

Acer HN274Hbmiiid Black 27" Full HD HDMI WideScreen LED 120Hz 3D Monitor 300 cd/m2 ACM 10,000,000:1 w/Speakers & 3D glasses
Acer HN274Hbmiiid Black 27" Full HD HDMI WideScreen LED 120Hz 3D Monitor 300 cd/m2 ACM 10,000,000:1 w/Speakers & 3D glasses

Pros: great for 3d, smooth 120hz

Cons: might not have new lightboost tech nvidia is talking about, not Displayport 1.2 , 2560 x 1600 (but that doesnt exist yet)

Overall Review: For the reviewer Jeff, you must use the supplied dual-link DVI cable to achieve 120hz and enable 3d, HDMI is not required for 3d vision and is actually of lower quality since it uses checkerboard or side by side frame packing, in which you only get 24fps in 1080p or 60fps in 720p. If you plunk down 700 for a monitor at least do your homework.Nuff said

Most Critical Review

SATA 6Gbs,yeah right

GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: SLI,Good overclocking

Cons: Ok, first of all the SATA 3 controller is really using PCI-e 2.0 which is 5gbs not 6gbs. The Marvell firmware for the sata 3 controller is a joke and will only push my crucial C-300 to 0.66 mbs using pc mark vantage on the windows defender setting!! Overall with my vertex 120's or my C-300 using anything other than the ich10r for sata cuts my benchmarks in half. And forget about raid-0 with the marvell controller it works but slowly.

Overall Review: sli is pretty tight , cards cant breath, I bought this board cause I wanted intel and still have an AMD gigabyte 890gx board which has true sata 3, not sure what to do now- have sli'd gtx 480's(future) or true sata 3

There can only be one! for now

Acer Predator X34 bmiphz Black 34" IPS 4ms (GTG) 60Hz/100Hz, 3440 x 1440 21:9, NVIDIA G-SYNC Ultra-wide Curved Gaming Monitor, ZeroFrame Design, Predator GameView Technology, VESA Mountable, Tilt/Height Adjustable, 2 x 7w Speakers
Acer Predator X34 bmiphz Black 34" IPS 4ms (GTG) 60Hz/100Hz, 3440 x 1440 21:9, NVIDIA G-SYNC Ultra-wide Curved Gaming Monitor, ZeroFrame Design, Predator GameView Technology, VESA Mountable, Tilt/Height Adjustable, 2 x 7w Speakers

Pros: The X34 is akin to a perfect 10 female minus one thing, if you get caught staring it doesnt notice,lol, ITS FREAKIN BEAUTIFUL. Games have much better color with sRGB than TN which Ive been waiting for since my old HP ZR30 IPS died 3 years ago. Cranked right up to 100, ips glow minimal, user controls not nearly as bad as made out. Buttery smooth vivid experience in every aspect.

Cons: I think it makes my girlfriend jealous, like the leg lamp in a christmas story.

Overall Review: Time for another 980ti so I can see constant 90 - 100 fps in everything.

The best I ever haaddd!!

HP ZR30w Black 30" 7ms S-IPS Panel Height &Swivel Adjustable Widescreen LCD Monitor w/USB Ports 370 cd/m2 DC 3,000:1
HP ZR30w Black 30" 7ms S-IPS Panel Height &Swivel Adjustable Widescreen LCD Monitor w/USB Ports 370 cd/m2 DC 3,000:1

Pros: Incredible color and image quality, low input lag, this monitor is incredible , i want 3 and would get them yet i am waiting for 2560 x 1600 at 120hz

Cons: none, maybe lack of osd but i dont mind

Overall Review: I have an ACER 27 inch 3d 120hz monitor sitting right next to this and I rarely use it(never), even though 120hz is smoother for gaming , the color and resolution of this monitor make it a no brainer, I use the ACER to play arkham asylum in 3d but thats pretty much it, the day when 120hz and 2560 x 1600 combine will be the ultimate, but that will take Displayport 1.2

Huge and classy

Xigmatek Elysium Black CCC-HSA0DS-U01 All Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Super Tower Computer Case
Xigmatek Elysium Black CCC-HSA0DS-U01 All Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Super Tower Computer Case

Pros: Lots of room, the white led/fan lights give it an awesome look ive never seen before

Cons: hard drive cages a little tempermental, heavy

Overall Review: I ordered 3 more white fans 1 x 200mm 1 x 140,1 x 120 to finish the build off, im totally blown away, its about an inch taller then my haf x, but about 6 inches longer, and it looks like it should be sitting next to the king/emperor of some old empire.lol

Awesome! No vram limit anymore!

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card ZT-50103-10P
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card ZT-50103-10P

Pros: This card is fast , runs cool, and has 3gb ram , you can crank up AA and not run into a ram limit.

Cons: none

Overall Review: I bought 2 of these elsewhere, put on evga high flow bracket and backplate , they look great. You only need the ram if you are running 2560 x 1600 or higher otherwise the 1.5 gb version will do. My 30' monitor hp zr30w was hitting a vram limit with 2 x gtx 570, I got these and am very happy with purchase.
