MSI N780 LIGHTNING G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Some of the best Bang-for-the-buck if you get it on Sale.
Gorgeous construction quality
Top-notch componentry throughout
Quiet, while kicking comparable GPU's backsides...

Cons: If you had to pay MSRP - some recent arrivals may offer better value.

However, I got this baby for low $5C and have only begun to explore the limits of what it can do on my 1080i Monitor.

Other Thoughts: Did A LOT of research and this GPU consistently gets great reviews on nearly all of the sites that I trust.

I was blown-away by how dang HUGE the box that it came-in was (inner hard-box is like a jewelry case...) - it was bigger and weighed about twice of what my Standard ITX Mobo box weighed...

Looking forward to many years of enjoyable use with my new toy!

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: More QUIET than stock coolers
Puts less stress on Mobo than gigantic air-coolers
Corsair Quality throughout
System runs nice-and-COOOOOLLLLL

Cons: Getting my new system (Corsair Link Applet) to recognize the USB dongle.

Initially, it did not work until I tried a different USB2.0 header. So, I deduct 1-egg for this

Other Thoughts: This unit provides a BIG step-up from the Stock fan.
Everything that I've read about the i7-4770K says that cooling it properly can be a pain - so, I decided to invest in some Corsair "peace-of-mind" and have not been disappointed.

Sure, there are better compnent-level Liquid Cooling Systems out there, but if you do not want to deal with exotic sourcing and complicated assembly - yet still want the benefits of a considerably-better-than-stock solution, this is probably one of the best.

Time will tell....

SeaSonic X Series X-850 (SS-850KM3 Active PFC F3) 850W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent reviews all-around - I did A LOT of research before investing in this new PSU

FUTURE-PROOF - Running an i7-4770K with mid-OC and MSI 780 Lightning - needed (2) 8-Pin Power for Graphix with room to add a 2nd in future if I so desire

Cons: None - maybe price, but I had (2) 20-buck gift cards from my Seagate HDDs & used those to supplement

Documentation / Labeling on cables could be a bit better (English is their 4th or 5th language...)

Other Thoughts: If you are assembling an upper-end (but not bleeding-edge) system, with modern componentry that draws less juice than it used to - an 850 Watt Unit should be more than ample for most people.

And this one is exceptional
