ASUS DirectCU II Radeon R9 270X DirectX 11.2 R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks cool. Play's games at high frame rates at an affordable price. I'm not a big gamer but I tried out Skyrim and automatically set my system using this card on Ultra settings.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I got it for under 200 bucks and so far it's working fine and performing every bit as good as I expected.

It seems to work fine with both Windows 7 and Linux Mint 17.

No regrets so far on this purchasing this graphics card.

I doubt you'll see much difference between this card and anything else until you move up into the 300 dollar price range.

GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD5H LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I like the looks of it. Well constructed. No issues with the board that I'm aware of so far.

A great all around board. I chose this one because I liked the looks of it, it seemed pretty high quality, and unlike other gaming-based board this one has a regular PCI slot that I can use to for my M-Audio Delta 44 sound card that I use for home studio recording applications.

Cons: Some people are complaining about the BIOS. I'm not as tech savvy as some people with using the BIOS but really haven't had enough confusion to dock this board an egg or not recommend it.

Just hit F2 and go into the classic BIOS's simple and easy to use IMO.

Other Thoughts: I was initially going to go with ASUS but decided to go with this board and have no regrets. I think it looks better than the ASUS Z97 boards. Well constructed and everything seems to work great.

Works well with both Windows 7 and Linux Mint 17, which I have installing on two separate SSD drives.

No regrets so far on this purchase.

Acer S241HLbmid  Black 24

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent picture, although not great. Cheap.

Cons: Mine's defective, which would explain the great sale they had on these monitors.

A huge annoying line right across the middle of the screen that flashes every time something moves.

I guess that's why Newegg unloaded these at such a good price.

Other Thoughts: Save your money. this is a cheap monitor.

For another 50 can something that looks nicer and works properly.
