3060 Ti - Excellent GPU
Pros: + No issues in delivery or product. Everything was packaged well. + It's a great 3060 Ti. No issues with installation or performance. +Pairs great with a Ryzen 5 5600x, Gskills Trident Neo 3600 CL16 RAM, and MSI Mortar WiFi B550 MB. +No issues controlling or synching GPU RGB. +I will vertically mount this GPU in a few days once my Riser Cable arrives from Phanteks. I will update with another photo then, if Newegg allows editing reviews.
Cons: - I would have preferred 3-fan GPU to fill out my case, but this is what I won on the shuffle and I had already bought almost everything but the GPU. - Was bundled with a mouse that I didn't need, increasing the overall purchase.
Overall Review: Overall, I would recommend this GPU for anyone looking for 3060 Ti performance out of a two-fan GPU.
XBOX-X for the Win!
Pros: + The XBOX-X came bundled the Ultimate Game Pass and an extra controller. These were both extremely useful bundled items. Won in Newegg Shuffle. + Everything came well packaged and on time from Newegg. + The fact the ultimate game pass pairs with PC makes XBox-X and PC gaming more affordable in the long run as compared to PC gaming and maintaining a PS account. + I love the design on the XBox X. The new software interface is easy to use and the M.2 SSD loads games at lightning speed compared with the last version of consoles.
Cons: - I have experienced some games (Hitman 3 & SoD 2) freezing upon loading requiring restart of the XBox. - The 1 TB of M.2 SSD fills up fast. You will need to purchase an external drive or delete previously loaded games to keep a full library. - Hardly any of my Xbox One and Xbox 360 games turned out to be backwards compatible.
Overall Review: I would hands down recommend the Xbox-X to any serious console and PC gamer. I had been mostly a a PS user since PS1 (own PS1, PS2, PS3, & PS4) and now don't think I'll even purchase the PS5 due to the benefits in overlap of the Ultimate Game Pass between Xbox and PC.
