16GB Crucial DDR3
ASUS P8Z77-V PRO
GTX 760
DVD Burner
PNY Optima 240GB SSD
3X 120MM Case Fans incl. a Phanteks PH-TC14PE w/ 2x 140MM Fans

I put together a new computer and kept the old PSU to go into the new unit along with SSDs and a couple hard drives. This was purchased to get my old computer back up and running. So far this unit is running that system without any issues. I know that on a good day that computer is pulling nowhere near 650W but it should be in the perfect 80 Plus area.

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2974-KR 4GB SC GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: With Windows 10 on the way I needed something with DX12 that didn't break the bank. I don't game like I used to but I need something that if a game comes out that I want to play (Fallout 4 I'm looking at you) it can handle it. When surfing or watching a video the card is completely silent.

Cons: None encountered so far.

Other Thoughts: I quit bothering to overclock video cards when I bought my GTX 260. I see on reviews that it should be able to clock well but it isn't worth my time to bench and tweak for hours on end for that extra MHz/FPS.

The last 6 out of 7 video cards I've bought have been nVidia. I was wanting to give AMD a shot but the power consumption and my personal driver issues with a R7 260X scared me away.

Geforce Experience seems to be conservative with settings so if you apply the recommended settings there is likely room for improvement.
