AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast!
OCs easily with just a multiplier bump (stock voltages - havent tested beyond 4000Mhz)
Runs surprisingly cooler then my PhII 960T

Cons: Higher power draw then competitor

Other Thoughts: Being a whole node behind intel, there was a small nagging voice inside my head about this purchase, mostly a voice that concluded that this CPU wouldn't perform very well and was grossly inefficient .. boy was I wrong!

Most benchmarks put this thing in between i5 3570 and i7 3770 - some even besting 3770 - all for much less $$

Believe me, you will not regret this purchase

EVGA GeForce GTX 670 DirectX 11 02G-P4-2670-KR 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Fast!
- Runs cool & quiet
- Low power draw
- Solid drivers
- Easily OC's to 680GTX levels
- Nice build quality with a minimalist sleek design

Cons: - Colors seem 'washed out' compared with my previous HD6870 - I remember this same 'problem' on my 79000GS & 7950GT (4200Ti as well?)- tweaking monitor & nvidia color settings has alleviated most of the issue
- A little pricey

Other Thoughts: This is my re-entry into nvidia territory after a couple generations with AMD/ATi. I am not brand loyal - I had previously been with nVidia since the original geForce256 (T&L baby!)

I had minimal issues with my AMD cards (5850 & 6870) ... but comparing the two brands, nVidia does have a slight edge with their polished driver package (AMD stop using .NET!).

I gotta say I am not disappointed with my purchase ... it's a cool, fast card with great driver support

ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - tons of features
- good price
- quality components
- nice layout and look

Cons: - somewhat flaky voltage adjustments ( 960T started defaulting to 1.45v - vcore droops -
- trouble getting sleep to function properly ( had to completely clear CMOS and do a bunch of messing around to get it working again )
- not POSTing until found above stable settings
