Pros: It started out great. Put up great numbers.

Cons: It's running hot. I'm playing WoW which shouldn't be THAT demanding.

What happens is, I get these tears in the graphics. There will also be black patches just missing or flickering graphics. It does this on WoW and WildStar.

Other Thoughts: Syste:

Pros: First, let me be clear: I'm not an over clocker or one that does a lot of tweaking.

I read other reviews where folks talked about issues with drivers and software that came with it. So, I downloaded all of the updated drivers and loaded to a jump drive. This made set up easy and I had none of the issues other's mentioned.

Cons: Too much bloatware.

Other Thoughts: It works for me. I'm a casual gamer that plays wow. My latency is 23-35 MS and with my set up I'm basically lag free. So I'm happy.

Pros: Does everything I wanted. It's quiet and powerful.

Cons: Not a big fan of the flat wires.
