GIGABYTE GV-N760OC-2GD REV2.0 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 3X 450W Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Games look great and the card runs quiet and cool under normal usage and stress testing.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with this card. It's definitely big, but as long as it will fit your case I would recommend it.

Antec HCG M HCG-850M 850W ATX12V SLI Ready CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs quiet, looks good, and provides power. Easy to install.

Cons: None that I've seen.

Other Thoughts: The current build that I have this in doesn't need an 850W power supply, so it may get louder under a significant load, but I haven't experienced it yet. Stays quiet while gaming and stress testing. Very happy with the performance thus far and glad to have additional power capacity for future upgrades.

I appreciate the option to turn the LED on or off. Makes for a surprisingly convenient feature.

Intel Core i5-4690 Haswell Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I54690 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs well and handles everything that I've thrown at it gaming so far. Turbo mode has kicked in as needed and provides a nice little speed boost.

Cons: The stock cooling solution for this was terrible. Gaming pulled temperatures into the high 80s and stress testing hit 100 where the processor started to throttle back to reduce temps. Experienced this with the cooling as purchased and again after cleaning and refitting the fan with Arctic Silver.

I picked up the CoolerMaster Evo 212 and stress testing temps are now staying below 70 with gaming temps well under that.

Other Thoughts: I'm happy with the performance of the processor and expect that it will handle all of my needs just fine.

My frustration comes from the need to purchase an after market cooler to make it operate at a temperature that I've comfortable with. If I'd known that I was going to have to purchase additional cooling anyway, I would have bought the 4670k as they were the same price when I ordered. The option to overclock would have been worth the minor drop in stock speed.
