PNY GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) DirectX 11 VCGGTX550TVXPB 1GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Get two of these and run an SLI setup. With an i5 2500k and 8gb 1600mhz ram, i get a nearly constant frame rate of 60fps with v sync on to prevent screen tearing with games like bf3 and skyrim with the hd texture packs with the settings cranked to ultra excluding antialiasing and anisotropic filtering, resolution set to 1080. If you're building a budget gaming rig its hard to beat that for $200.

Cons: None.

Pros: Dr. Debug, Easy to use BIOS. If you need to Overclock your CPU the motherboard basically auto sets your settings for you. Make sure to adjust the DRAM Timing to 1600+ if you have newer ram. The PCI slots have adequate distance between them however beware, if you are running SLI the lower PCI slot is close to where you connect your case's cords. In case you were also wondering, aftermarket cpu cooling devices like the CoolerMaster V8 fit without obstructing the closest DRAM slot.

Cons: The motherboard is not a full size ATX as advertised, However it still fits in my NZXT Phantom 410 with no problems...For those of you who dont know what that is, it is a mid tower.

Other Thoughts: NZXT Phantom 410
ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155
Intel i5 2500K OC'd to 4.2GHZ
16GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 RAM
GTX 550 Ti SLI
CoolerMaster V8 (slightly noisy but comes with a manual fan speed adjustment) also who really cares
