Nice Card

Galaxy GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 56NKH3HS4GNK
Galaxy GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 56NKH3HS4GNK

Pros: Fast, runs all the games I have played max settings no overclocking needed, runs cool with stock fan/heatsink. 3dmark 11 score 5400 ish cant remember exact score but I gather its a decent score.

Cons: Drivers are confusing as of now, the disc worked fine but the nvidia website cant detect proper drivers, the 290.53 beta driver works. There is no 560 ti 448 cores choice yet.

Overall Review: Bought this galaxy brand due to it being cheaper, usually buy evga but don't regret it, this card works fine.

Sketchy Video output

GIGABYTE GA-Z77N-WIFI LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Board has alot of nice features including builtin wifi.

Cons: The hdmi video onboard as well as the discrete graphics card didnt work unti flashing the beta bios. It only works every now and then and has to be started multiple times to get video signal. Still waiting for a new bios hoping it will fix this problem. Also a few other weird glitches occur when the computer is in use.

Overall Review: Built my brother an htpc/gaming computer using this board. I have been a fan of gigabyte for some time but this is not acceptable. would have rated it 5 eggs easy if not for this problem but no video signal is a big problem

Driver nightmare

PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 480 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXRX 480 4GBD5-3DHDV2
PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 480 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXRX 480 4GBD5-3DHDV2

Pros: Price

Cons: I have always used nvidia cards but I figured I would give this one a shot due to the low price and xfire ability. I chose poorly, I have fought to get working drivers on this all day. The only way I could get a fully working system was to format and let windows update install the driver which is an older version. Never had issues with nvidia drivers working.

Overall Review: My card doesn't run hot like most reviews claim. Using a well ventilated case might help.

Nice Monitor

Acer GN246HL 24" Full HD 1920 x 1080 144Hz 1ms DVI HDMI VGA Immersive 3D Backlit LED Gaming Monitor
Acer GN246HL 24" Full HD 1920 x 1080 144Hz 1ms DVI HDMI VGA Immersive 3D Backlit LED Gaming Monitor

Pros: Nice monitor for the price paid 144 hz, you can definitely see a difference moving from 60 hz

Cons: The adjustment is a bit limited and stiff but not that big a deal.

Overall Review: Like every other review says this monitor is bright. Yes it is but its set to %100 out the box so turn it down to around 15-20 and problem solved.
