Thermaltake SMART Series SP-550PCBUS 550W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs quiet and cool. Looks sleek as hell. More than enough cables to satisfy my build. Voltage is spot on as far as I can tell. No instability issues. This is my first Thermaltake PSU and as such I was a bit nervous, but It hits all of the marks. It hasn't made scary noises, smoked, exploded or verbally threatened me so It's doing its job just fine.

Cons: Not modular, but It's not advertising itself as such. was a bit tricky to get the CPU Power connector in as this is bottom mounted in my case, but made it okay.

GIGABYTE Radeon R7 260X DirectX 11.2 GV-R726XWF2-2GD REV2 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs Wow and Old republic well on high settings, which is all I got it for. Also runs most other newer games with good frame rates if certain settings are turned down. This is a mid range card and as such cannot be expected to run all new titles at max. But if you turn things down a bit it does just fine. Still will look better than their console counterparts.

Cons: Amd drivers... But if you have any experience with their cards you already know this.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectX 11.1 GV-N65TOC-2GI REV2.0 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs most games just fine. Newer demanding titles require a resolution change and/or settings changes to get desirable performance, but I new this going in as I just needed something to use between now and a more substantial upgrade. Runs cool and overclocks close to a Amd 7850 level of performance while keeping close to stock temps. Dual fan design is a bonus. Runs quiet.

Cons: Not going to run newer demanding games at highest settings but that is a given. No card in this price range does. It can however run them just fine if you lower some of the settings. Still ends up better than console quality.

Other Thoughts: Wish there was a Gigabyte case sticker included but that's just a nitpick and not a valid complaint, lol.
