  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: performance, price(389.00), 2 free game downloads

Cons: length of card, newegg running out of stock to buy another one

Other Thoughts: well before I bought the card seen some of the reviews that were negative.. still bought card.. I don't know if I got a good card but I have had no issues of what these other people are going through.. updated the drivers to latest beta, no problems, no artifact tearing or blue screen crashes.. most games are found as very high or even ultra.. replaced sli'ed 560s' blows it out of water..
Only issue I had with the card was my old case could not fit it so research b4 you buy but not enough to knock an egg off..
hope it comes back in stock for me to buy one b4 income tax money runs out lol.. also have the card overclocked and no issues

MSI 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: fast processor
fairly recent NVidia card built in
built in fan and turbo buttons
12gb ram and beautiful 17.3 screen
keyboard customizable lighting

Cons: no ssd.. also hard drive is split up for recovery
Blu-ray drive could be iffy
also built in graphics supersedes NVidia until you specify
in game
cannot switch on the fly with graphics

Other Thoughts: really nice laptop but tried to install elder scrolls v with disc and vibrated badly and would not recognize.. only disc so far to not be read.. movies worked.. also not happy having to use intel graphics for most processes.. liked to have NVidia running all the time.. also this messes up the windows experience benchmarks so not able to get good ratings of video.. hard drive drops it to 5.9 because not ssd.. overall gave it 5 stars due to other pluses I posted and new egg got it here quick.. live in nj and was sent out from jersey worked out for me
