MSI GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 N680GTX Lightning 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: This card is a juggernaut! nothing I threw at it yet has made it even break a sweat. I was originally going to get two GTX 570s but convinced myself to go big or go home. So I ordered one GTX 680 Lightning. And then a couple of days later ordered another one! One card alone was playing every game at max settings with a breeze. Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3... And now with two GTX 680 Lightnings, it's incredible! I haven't even started to overclock them myself. Just out of the box, they already handle everything at extreme settings.

Cons: The only con is the price of this card. But if you can afford it, I say go for it! But I also think they might be discontinued as well. At least on Newegg. I think I got two of some of the last ones in stock.

Other Thoughts: If you can get your hands one or even two. I'd choose two GTX680 Lightnings and SLI them over a EVGA GTX 690 or even a Titan. and still spend about the same amount of money. A reference GTX 680 SLI will out-perform a GTX690 on almost any game. So GTX 680 Lightnings SLI, (which are the fastest of the GTX 680 series), will hands down destroy any GTX 690. Two GTX 680s consume more power from your PSU so I at least go with a 750w PSU, or 850w with the Lightnings because of the extreme OC capability. One card would be more than enough to handle anything if you don't want to end up spending a grand for two.

5 out of 5 eggs The Bread and Butter! 03/26/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

Pros: Windows 7 Home Premium is everything you need at an affordable price! As a gamer, I don't necessarily need professional or ultimate to effective play games. So this version of Windows 7 is a great balance between price and usefulness. I wont utilize all the other extra features that come with the other versions.

Cons: It only supports up to 16GB of DDR3. But that's not much of a con because anymore than that is suited more for a server based computer and not a gaming computer.

Other Thoughts: Can't go wrong with really any version of windows 7. It just depends on how much your willing to spend. I definitely recommend the Home Premium version, even for a gamer.
