5 out of 5 eggs Free, and not too bad either 04/17/2014

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - ASSASSIN'S CREED IV: BLACK FLAG

Pros: It was free! Pretty fun game, best in the series so far I would say.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Fun to play!

Pros: Very decent card! Upgraded from a 260 GTX which was eating dirt in games such as Thief and AC:BF. Replaced it with this guy, and went from 100C to 30-40C, and the fan? Silent. Comes with overclocking and monitoring software. I OC from time to time, and it works out pretty well. At max speed you can hear the fans but they are nothing compared to most other cards of similar power. My benchmarks with the build posted below and this card:

WoW (Ultra, everything maxed): 40-45 Frames under idle, 30-40 during 10-25 flex raids. 50-60 FPS on good-high settings with max draw distance.

SC2 - High Settings: 45-55 FPS

Thief: 30 FPS on high, 50+ on medium

Build: i3 3220, 8GB RAM, 250GB EVO SSD

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Could have cost less, but I can't complain, I got more than I paid for in my eyes. Solid card.

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing in every way! Samsung customer for life. 04/17/2014

This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250KW 2.5" TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) With Desktop Bundle Kit

Pros: This is the real deal.

You are not ready for the kind of difference this product will make in your daily life. Most of the reviews I've read reported 'moderate speed increases', and 'faster read and write speeds'. Bah, they just don't want to hype you up. This thing, this... magical tray of flash storage will make any build feel like a power build. Everything, and I mean everything, is faster.

Photoshop, king of the 'takes 5 minutes to load previous work into RAM' suddenly zips open as if it were a lightweight browser freshly installed. 30+ Chrome tabs across 2 screens? Not even a problem. This guy loads all of that without a flicker. Unity compiles and builds a large 5gb+ project in under 3 seconds, and this is with a not-so-amazing i3 3220 and 4GB of ram.

I'll never go back to HDDs again, especially since this drive is rated to last for 30+ years under significant daily load (google evo ssd durability tests for proof).

The build quality is great, and the bundled transfer tool is very efficient at quickly copying your old drive's data over.

Cons: The speed may cause wind sheer so powerful you will cry.

Other Thoughts: Overall setup time: 1.5 hours
Build Quality: 5/5
Speed: 5/5
Price: 4/5 (Buy hey, we will get there one day)
