Microsoft Surface 3 Intel Atom CPU 4GB RAM 128GB Storage 10.8
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: intel's newest atom quad core, full version of windows 8.1 with free upgrade to windows 10 later this year. 4gb of ram, though some might see that as bad? it handles everything I throw at it and still has room to go further.

Cons: the micro usb charger? although not bad, it does limit the speed of charge since it's only 13watts with the provided charger, slower if you use a cell phone charger (2.5amps as to 0.5amps)

Other Thoughts: I got this to replace the surface RT 1st gen, they click type cover from the RT fits and works with this :) the surface 3 being a little wider, the cover dosn't cover the top part, but covers the whole screen so i'm happy. perfect size and weight tablet for on the go and battery life is awesome. I also got the pen for it witch also is awesome, to draw/paint with and write notes on the fly, works great as a mouse aswell if you can't quite hit something with your finger. I will say this little thing is powerfull for it's size, every program including Skype runs great. I recommend getting a decent size MicroSD for it, just so you don't fill the onboard up so fast cause right out of the gate you're down to 92gb free, just a little heads up ;)

NETGEAR XAVB1004-100NAS Powerline AV Adapter Kit With Ethernet Switch Up to 200Mbps
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 4 port switch, plug it in and forget it..

Cons: none that i can speak of

Other Thoughts: this is neat. i picked this up at a local store for 45, for a bluray player that didn't have a wireless connection and this is way better then wireless. they say it has 200Mb/s connection, thats only between each node.

ECS Black Series GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) DirectX 11 NBGTX560-1GPI-F 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: P1040 refrence board from the TI version. will work with any 560Ti water block. runs BF3 and Skyrim at 720P max settings with only 50% usage. never excedes 60C and fan is super quiet

Cons: a Ti in disguise but can't unlock due to laser echting

Other Thoughts: Decent card running it with a 520watt PSU and only useing 300 watts max total system with a quad core and 8 gb ram. definitly better to get this over a 550Ti, could only run that at med settings at 720P with 100% usage. i still don't see going to a Ti over this for at most 16% better AF.
