EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC GAMING, ACX 2.0 (Single Fan), 06G-P4-6163-KR, 6GB GDDR5, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC), Only 6.8 Inches

Pros: Noticeably faster than my R9 280x. My son needed something better than the ancient HD4870 he was using and I couldn't bring myself to pay for an "older-but-better" card that would still work with BIOS for him. I passed my 280x to him and grabbed this. I had wondered if I would need to upgrade my 2.5 year old AMD FX setup in the next year, but I can say that I have no reason to do so at this point. I run vsync because I can't stand even the slightest tearing so I'm really only judging by my system's ability to sustain 60fps@1080. Doom, Just Cause 3, Final Fantasy 14, and a few others - all max settings and buttery where I had to turn a few things down before with my 280x (or live with some lower frame rates.) There is one game I tried (still in alpha and under NDA so I can't specify) that I had to turn the shadows down one step from max.

I have no beef with AMD and my choice of this over a 480 came to availability. I am seeing some benches that put this a little ahead of the 480 but the pricing seems to reflect that appropriately.

This is a fantastic card for the MSRP. Don't pay gouged prices. Wait for the stock to level out if you need to. Unless you're doing >1080 or are serious about VR, this is the new sweet spot.

Cons: Had to replace all my mini-displayport dongles with regular displayport for my extra monitors. Wish they would stick to a standard from one generation to the next.

Seagate BarraCuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Fast drive - used it almost exclusively to store game installs.

Cons: Died a little more than a year and a half after purchase. Seagate RMA page tells me the drive is out of warranty. Had to email support directly and send them my receipt and the store page showing a 2 year warranty. Hopefully I'll get a replacement.

UPDATE: The RMA drive they sent me almost two years ago is now failing. Run from Seagate. Run far, far away.

Other Thoughts: The original drive had about 500 days of uptime and died. The RMA'd drive that is now failing has 1500+ power on days.

1 out of 5 eggs 2nd unit now has coil whine 11/21/2014

This review is from: Thermaltake TR2 TR-600 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Works great, when it's working.

Cons: I RMA'd my initial unit just a month or two after I bought it for squealing/coil whine. I've had my second unit for just over 6 months and it just developed the exact same problem. I recently found a site that ranks certain power supplies and this one was in it - almost at the very bottom in terms of reliability. Run. Run far away.
