Microsoft Windows Store Gift Card - $5 (Email Delivery)
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great, timely delivery 04/17/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows Store Gift Card - $5 (Email Delivery)

Pros: Fast delivery, works. Convenient. AWESOME DISCOUNT!!!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I saw some people who obviously know nothing about Xbox or MS store complaining they can't buy stuff with this. Let's make this super clear: you CAN buy music albums or songs, movies, tv shows, apps games, and in-game extras for Windows Phone, Xbox, Windows. You CANNOT buy XBL (Live), stuff from, or Xbox Music SUBSCRIPTION (you can buy albums and songs to keep).

Also, I got this for %20 through a NewEgg promo email TWICE. Seems they're getting rid of them, so subscribe to newegg if you're into downloading Xbox games or buying expansions or movies or anything of the sort digitally. I've bought half of my games for less than $50 brand-new thanks to this. THE BEST DEAL OUT THERE.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7790 GV-R779OC-1GD 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Price
Runs games decently
Low power consumption
4 Outputs vs. the standard 3

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this card for a budget Micro ATX build. Used with an AMD A10-4100K and 8 GB G.Skill 1866 DDR3, as well as a Corsair SSD. I put this in a tower with a 450 Watt PSU, and it works like a charm. Official specs say it requires 500 Watts, but it's working fine for me, even with slight OC (haven't gone past 1100). Even with this, I was able to run BioShock Infinite on Ultra with a 1920x1080 screen and get an average 40 FPS, or 52 on High settings. Not bad. I haven't tried much else because I play most games on my Xbox, but everything seems buttery smooth!

Manufacturer Recertified Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F120GB3/RF2 2.5

Pros: Fast, easy set up, perfect for Windows 8. Corsair software for cloning made things a breeze. Great with three year-old Toshiba laptop.

Cons: Didn't work with my existing USB to SATA cable that had come with my Seagate external drive, but that's probably just Seagate's problem.

Other Thoughts: Had this for a day, and it was really easy to get going. Had to buy a USB>SATA cord for lack of a desktop. (that's getting fixed with my first build soon!!) Plugged in the drive, opened Corsair's software, clicked "clone" and after a couple hours (still stuck on USB 2.0) everything was on the new drive. Literally just swapped the drives, booted up and that was it. No drivers, (I did update however) didn't even have to run a fixmbr. Quite literally plug and play, although your mileage may vary. Took boot time (Win 8.1, AMD A6 1.5 GHZ quad, 8 GB ram, Radeon 6550) from 14 seconds down to 8. Most of that time is pre-HD (BIOS, etc.) and Windows takes 1-2 seconds.
