XFX Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9-290X-8DFD 8GB 512-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Double Dissipation Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Looks good
- Runs cool and quiet
- Plays every game I've tried with maxed out settings at 1080p (even while recording)
- Installed drivers and worked perfectly

Cons: -The way the heat sink is designed makes it difficult to press the clips on a power cable in.
- The metal plate to mount it to the rear of the case needed some adjustment to fit properly (this could have been an issue with my case, hard to tell, previous cards had no issues)
- Didn't come with any stickers/badges #TotalDevastation

Other Thoughts: Picked this card up on sale to replace my cross-fired 6970's and it's outperformed them by a long shot. If you are even considering buying this card, you're best off just doing it, you won't regret it.

Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's solid, tons of cable management, carrying handles are nice, neat things like the thumb screw power supply mount and the super easy to swap hard drive mounts are nice, looks really nice.

Easy access to pretty much anything in the case.

Cons: The 200mm fan mount on top does not a fit a normal 200mm fan, you need to have a fan with the the offset mounts. Not really a con but the fan I had did not work.

Other Thoughts: I used this for my gaming rig and it's keeping the internal temp about 10 Celsius cooler than my previous case and with the intake layout and the two fans up front both my graphics cards and CPU radiator are staying considerably cooler than any standard case I've owned.

CORSAIR Gaming Series GS600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solid, plenty of connecters, as soon as you pick it up you know its a quality piece of hardware.

Cons: Cables are a tad hard to manage due to the mesh coating, but that's understandable.

Other Thoughts: This is a much more heavy power supply then most, i'd recommend putting it in a bottom mount case or making sure it can very securely mount in the top.
