450W ATX Lite-on PS-6301-08A PS-6361-5 Power Supply Replace
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Blew up after a month of use. Can't return it now so it goes in the trash can.

Other Thoughts: Get something better. I've been building computers for a long, long time. I always get good PSU's like CM or Corsair...shame on me for departing from a practice which has served me well for a long time. Avoid this thing. Get a good one and don't waste your money.

EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-4998-KR 6GB CLASSIFIED GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling w/ Free Installed Backplate Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast and powerful right out of the box. It's VERY powerful.

Cons: The fans are a bit loud, but I use headphones.

Other Thoughts: This is a top performer. I had considered an MSI card for more money, but this one won the day because of the reviews and specs. I bought it specifically for the Oculus CV1 when it arrives. My DK2 loves it.

XFX Double D Radeon HD 7950 DirectX 11 FX-795A-TDFC 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Powerful, like crazy powerful, especially in Crossfire

Cons: I have two of these cards, both identical. I spent hours testing and testing to learn that both cards get to 100C in heavy use. That's too hot, and it exceeds XFX's temp range as stated on their FAQ.

I've tested one card and then the other as well as Crossfire and they run at 99-100C (or more, but I can't determine it reliably) The primary card also idles at around 68C. These temps are just insane.

Other Thoughts: I'd give these a 5+ star rating if they ran in a normal temp range. I'm a loyal XFX customer and have an old 5770 in a junk box, a 6950 in an i5-2500k rig and these two 7950's running in a new LGA2011 i7 system.

I know the card has been discontinued now, but nevertheless I have to make these comments.
