EVGA 04G-P4-3688-KR GeForce GTX 680 Classified 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Custom built Card.
-4gb memory.
-Better binned chip for higher OC than most 680's
-Lower fan noise and better cooler than typical 680's.
-Most will boost higher than advertised clock. (mine boost to 1267 out of the box without me touching any manual overclock).
-Evga is in my opinion the best company to buy video cards from with unrivaled customer service.

Cons: -Does not come with EVBOT anymore.
-Very large card in both width and length. May require modification of computer case to fit even in larger cases.
-Gtx 780 was just released and GTX 770 will in a matter of day's meaning this great card will get overlooked.

Other Thoughts: This is a great card I have worked with many different models of the GTX 670 and 680 and I have found these to come with better binned chips that have more headroom than most I also realy like the cooler/fan setup on these cards offering better cooling and more quiet fan than standard 670's/680's.

I was so impressed with this card that I bought another to run in SLI even though the GTX 780 was released as two of these will handle anything you throw at them plus has 4gb of memory which will help with future proofing as games are already reaching the 3gb mark at 1080p.

If this card will fit in your case I would still recommend it even with the new series just releasing as it is not a typical GTX 680 and it is getting easier to find a good deal on this card most of these will surpass the new GTX 770 in performance and get close enough to a GTX 780 while being much cheaper. Great card.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate Nintendo 3DS Game

5 out of 5 eggs Great mix of old and new 04/12/2013

This review is from: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate Nintendo 3DS Game

Pros: Great Graphics and sound.
Awesome whip cracking action and combo's
Realy enjoyed the storyline of this "reboot"

Cons: If there was anything I did not like about this game it would be that it was a little on the short side and I am quite sure it is short because they tried to cram to much into the tiny 3ds card....this game would have done such a better job on a console like the ps3,xbox 360 and PC.

Other Thoughts: As a long time fan of the castlevania series since the original back in 1987 I have appreciated a lot of the changes in the castlevania games over the years with exceptions being the n64,ps2 and wii versions as I hated them.

I think the lords of shadow series is a very brave move from mercury steam and I think they did a great job and commend them for there effort's as the rebooted story line has done a great job of putting everything together and making it fresh. I feel everyone should atleast give it a try before they cast judgement.

CORSAIR HX series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Corsair as a company because of there customer service and for the way they back there products up when you need to RMA.

Cons: The new Gold series HX650 has a design flaw where it makes realy annoying squeeky bird like noises when the fan spins up under load the first one I bought did this and the RMA replacement did the same thing...seems to be a widespread issue after seeing many on the corsair forums experiencing the same thing and after looking through the reviews on this newegg looks like newegg combined the reviews of the old bronze edition hx650 (stellar unit) and the new Gold edition HX650 (Problem unit) into the same review which will confuse someone who does not know any better....keep in mind the older reviews are for the older bronze unit and the more recent will be for the gold edition unit.

Other Thoughts: In my opinion the Gold series HX series has a design flaw that still has not been worked out I would reccomend staying away from this new series and instead pick up a Seasonic,Antec,XFX..etc or even the previous bronze edition hx650 as that model was realy nice,reliable and quiet it seems the issues started when corsair had CWT build the HX650 instead of seasonic.
