EVGA GeForce GTX 980 04G-P4-3988-KR 4GB CLASSIFIED GAMING w/ACX 2.0, 26% Cooler and 36% Quieter Cooling For Gaming Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cool design
Stays cool

Cons: Defective unit. I LOVE EVGA, really their products are usually excellent but that GTX 980 Classified (2nd highest tier of GTX 980 in their lineup) miserably failed. Massive crashes 1 after the other, no stability whatsoever. Re installing drivers and windows did nothing to help.

Other Thoughts: Technically this card can push all games to max setting but mine was not able to keep BF4 1080p on the 40 fps range in MEDIUM. Extremely disappointed. Those gpus are supposed to be tested before being sold, that one was not.

SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 100362VXSR 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support TRI-X OC (UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Design

Cons: Performance, drivers, stability.
This is card is in the higer end of Sapphire. The chips used for them are ''binned'' which means that they pick only the chips with top results after 80 hours of non-stop testing. I can't believe this chip passed the test, it is highly unstable, crashing every time I use windows...yes every single time. For a high end card, this is just disgusting to have such low quality. There is zero stability and you never know when the card will start to act up and crash everything it's just a time-bomb.

Other Thoughts: Would I have known that Sapphire could deliver such mediocre product, I would have stayed with nVidia which delivers every time. Like I said this product is marketed as a ''luxury'' GPU which means you should and have the right to expect a 100% working unit since they are tested for long hours in their facility before being sold. How can such a bad card gets approved is a mystery for me but it's the last time I buy Sapphire. I will only get fooled once.

MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Extreme OC High Performance Triple CFX/ SLI  Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sturdy build

Cons: Overall quality
Hardware recognition
Tech support (what a joke)

Other Thoughts: I bought this board 2 months ago, installing physically was a breez but software was a mess. MSI Command Center and Live (to update drivers) is aweful. I started having trouble with CPU fans, loosing all control and then when I tryed to join tech support it was just a mess. I wish I could return it. First time with MSI and 100% last time as well.
