EVGA 04G-P4-3685-KR GeForce GTX 680 FTW Standard, w/Backplate 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Upgraded from SLI'd 560 Ti's and there is a huge difference in frames. I'm able to play on high settings while frapsing with decent fps. Without frapsing I can run triple A title games with high or near ultra graphics with 50-70 fps. Other games it runs 120+ FPS.

Games I've played recently that I can run between high and ultra are crysis 3. 50-70FPS. If I bump AA up to 4x+ frames significantly decrease.

While playing PS2 my CPU (2600k) was bottlenecking my gpu. I OC'd to 4.4 ghz and it switchs between both cpu and gpu for bottlenecking so I hit the sweet spot. Definitely increased performance on PS2. Haven't tried Crysis 3 yet with OC'd CPU.

Fans run pretty quiet but I don't notice them because I have a headset on.

Also runs games on my 42" LCD/Plasma T.V. at pretty similiar frames to my 24" Monitor.

GPU looks pretty sweet as well I'd have to say, nice and clean structure.

Plays perfect for following games. Borderlands 2, Deadspace 3, crysis 3, Planetside 2, Batman Arkham Asylum. And a multitude of other games that don't have near as high system requirements as the games I listed above.

Cons: Price is pretty steep, but the 4gb definitely worth it if you plan on playing games with huge resolution. IE 42" T.V's.

Almost didn't fit in my medium tower, had to push wires aside connecting to my power supply to fit the bad boy in.

Other Thoughts: Worth it for the price if you like the eye candy for recently released games.

APEVIA  CF14SL-BGN  140mm UV green LED fan w/3-pin and 4-pin connectors and black grill

Pros: Fans definitely looked cool and matched colors with my case which was a plus. I purchased 2 of them, one of them is failing after 2 years of use so I purchased some corsair fans to replace them.

Cons: Basically the fan that is failing will either stop completely or rotate at about 45rpms.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for longevity of these fans you might want to look else where. Out of the 2 I purchased 1 is already malfunctioning.

ASUS P8Z68-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Everything worked great out of the box for 1 week, no issue's.

Cons: Put a wireless card on the mobo and started having difficulties getting my comp to run, BIOS would freeze, couldn't get to windows login, some logo came up saying that I had overclocked some hardware which I hadn't. Comp would freeze randomly throughout start up sequence, fans would accelerate to 100% for no reason. Pulled the card out and it made no difference, went into BIOS set it to default, upgraded BIOS software still no changes. About to RMA this board.
