Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1150 88W BX80646I74790K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Crushes everything you can throw at it with room to spare. My CPU isn't going to be the bottleneck for a loooong time.

Cons: Box looks like a hygiene product (not really a con but this is funny)

Intel Network 7260.HMWWB.R WiFi WIRELESS-AC 7260 H/T 2X2 AC 867 Mbps+ Bluetooth HMC Dual Band Brown Box
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Has shiny stuff on it?

Cons: Didn't work on my desktop pc with an adapter (driver issues? not sure but it wouldn't connect to bluetooth devices or my wireless ac)
Didn't work in my wifes laptop (to be fair, this was Lenovo's fault for disabling compatibility)

Other Thoughts: Probably awesome if your system supports it. None of mine did so now it's sitting in a box.

ASUS VG248QE Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 144hz is very smooth in games that support it... of which there are very few
144hz desktop experience is neat. everything moves and re-sizes so cleanly
Seems solidly built.
Stand and adjustments are great.

Cons: Colors: they suck. After calibration (custom color profile and some osd menu tweaking) they are better, but still not good.
Contrast: yuck. Calibration does little to help this. everything always seems to bright or too dark, too washed out or too muddy.
1080p resolution: yes a i know it's a budget 144hz, but if you're on a budget you probably wont be pushing over 60 fps anyway.

Other Thoughts: 144hz gaming is amazing... for a few hours. If you are on the fence choosing between this and, say, a 1440p or an IPS, ditch this monitor and go for the higher resolution or better colors instead. My other monitor is a 1440p IPS by LG and it is superior in every possible way (except the 144hz thing).
