GIGABYTE GV-N780GHZ-3GD G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: First and foremost, 99% of websites out there will tell you that if you are only running a single 1080p monitor then you can stick with a GTX 770 (or go like I almost did and get a 4gb 770)

However, I wasn't buying this card for the current generation of games, mind you it may not be able to play the next generation on Ultra or Extreme (it very well COULD though), but compared to the abysmally low I was running from my old gaming laptop this card is a beast. It runs everything I throw at it without even breaking a sweat.

I also have not had the driver problems other people have mentioned, mine seem to be running everything just fine (most of the time).

Cons: There are a few cons to this card, though not enough to knock an egg off.

At room temperatures around 65-70°F this card seems to run on the warm side at around 75-80°C under full load. That's not extremely hot as GPU's are meant to run hotter than your average GPU it's still a little warmer than I'd like it to be. I imagine my issue is an issue with the case though as I just switched to the NZXT Phantom, so adding some new fans to improve airflow is a must for me. Take it as a precaution though, if your case is small, or if there's not a lot of air flow. You might want to be a little skeptical of this card.

I've also ran into issues (as mentioned above) with older games from time to time, one such example is The Witcher Enhanced Edition. It just wouldn't load the game and immediately go back to the desktop, a simple reboot always fixes it (So it could be something similar to the driver problems others have mentioned), it makes me think there's an issue with the driver somewhere but it's not a constant crash like others have experienced.

Other Thoughts: Great card, definitely worth the purchase if you have the clams... Or dollars, euros, whatever currency you decide to use...

C2G 50605 5m/16.4ft Black Connector 1: (1) HDMI Male Connector 2: (1) HDMI Male Select High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet M-M

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Hi-Speed HDMI Cable that serves it's purpose. I personally purchased it for 8$ or so for 16.4ft, and you can't really beat that anywhere else. It provides a good picture, and the cable is sturdy.

Cons: The cable is a little thick/stiff and hard to manage easily. I still haven't gotten all the coils out of it.

Other Thoughts: Great value, and good purchase overall.

Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The drive itself is great I bought one from a few weeks prior to buying this one and it's fantastic. I bought this one because it's the best price I could find after a little bit of looking around. Hopefully my RMA goes through soon because otherwise it might not be worth the money saved.

Cons: The drive I received had the Sata Data Connection Port destroyed. Looking it over quickly you couldn't even tell it was broken. Also, the bubble-wrap that was surrounding the hard drive (There was no box like if you were to buy it from Best Buy, just the bare drive) So I'm not sure when it was broken, in shipping and the bubble-wrap deflated or before it left inspection as someone just glanced over it. I am currently awaiting an RMA and will update afterwards if possible.

Other Thoughts: Everything else I've purchased from Newegg has worked fantastically. So I'm pretty sure they'll go ahead and send me a replacement drive soon, I don't really see why they wouldn't but as you can expect the RMA process sure does take a bit. :(
