Pros: I love this thing. It looks sleek, and all the parts - including the faceplate and fan - look well-made and solid. The card is quiet when not under load and even though it rev's up under stress, it isn't anything noticeable after the card has been given time to adjust. The newest drivers, some hard gaming, and It's nearly quiet until I set everything up to Ultra. It makes some noise then, but I haven't run across any framerate that wasn't buttery-smooth.
Cons: Bit of a pain getting the drivers installed, but I doubt that hasn't been said at some point for every existing video card/gpu in existence.
Overall Review: I didn't get the promo games that were sold with it around two hours after I processed my purchase. It'd be nice to have them ( Tomb Raider looks awesome ) but that isn't the fault of Newegg or XFX. Just my poor timing, and in no way a con.
Pros: Installed without a hitch.
Fit in the case snugly.
Had all the necessary connections
Everything was flexible and easily adjusted for airflow.
Overall Review: I probably won't ever need another power supply with this build. If you're going mid-tier, go with this. Solid choice.
Pros: An anti-static wristband that doesn't not do those two things. It is both a Wristband, and anti-static. I've used it multiple times and it hasn't failed me.
Cons: I wish it was a deeper blue. I like blue. But not this blue.
Pros: Hey, it works. Had no issues with install, took no issues when I installed the operating system. It did what hard drives do, well.
Cons: None, to be honest. Been a short time, though. We'll see.
Overall Review: Does what you want it to do when you need it. Popped it into a Dell M5010 and worked perfectly with Ubuntu Linux ( Fellow didn't want to order/pay for recovery disks, so )
