EVGA GeForce GTX 980 04G-P4-3988-KR 4GB CLASSIFIED GAMING w/ACX 2.0, 26% Cooler and 36% Quieter Cooling For Gaming Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very nice looking card
Run very cool using a fan curve
The rest to be determined See cons

Cons: Very glitchy bios.
With OC bios switch set you can only go up +37 on voltage but OC tools like MSI and EVGA only show 1.200 << which is stock voltage.. You need a voltage meter to even see the voltage change. Overvolt setting in EVGA Precision tool jacks the voltage to up over 1.4-1.5V with not way of adjusting it to a reasonable 1.25-1.3 on air. Very frustrating for a $700 card I can't do what I want with it!. See other

Other Thoughts: Been reading many EVGA forums on this subject and I am not alone. There are many other have the same issues and have RMA'ed there cards more than once. How ever there are some bios out and old drivers that help some with this matter. But I'm not big into flashing cards and I don't want to run old drivers and sacrifices game performance when I have a beast of a card in my rig. Looks like it's going to be a long waiting game :( Not super happy about it! I will say it's not the cards fault it's the people that put it on the market with out having it fine tuned and ready for sale. Kinda reminds me of BF4 lol

SENNHEISER GAME ONE 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Awesome sound quality!
Very good bass for a headset
light weight and good build quality
Check other thoughts

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Been buying $80 headset for years. But for Christmas this year I ordered he Game one headset since I use my headset all the time. Running the Game one on the on board sounds until I get the sound card I ordered to push them. Even plugged into the MB this headset is night and day to any I have ever owned. They actually have some BASS!! << not distorted or over powering just a perfect amount!! Can't wait for the sound card

LG 34UM65 Black 34
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Amazing picture! Ultra wide is the way to go. Games look unreal.

Cons: None! Not even price. It's worth every penny to me.

Other Thoughts: Coming off a Nvidia surround setup with 3 Asus monitors and 2 780's this monitor is by far a better setup. Sold my cards for 1 780ti and monitors for this LG 34" monitor. Able to play all games maxed while playing much smoother than the surround setup. I have been playing most games with Vsync on which helps a lot with any screen tearing and micro shutter. Surround setups have really nasty screen tearing and micro shutter with vsync on or off. All my games play very smooth. Hopes this helps anyone thinking about going with a surround setup. One card one amazing monitor is the way to go.
