Intel Core i5-4460 Haswell Quad-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1150 BX80646I54460 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600

Pros: I've been pleased with the performance pushed out of this processor. I use it in my gaming pc and have been quite satisfied even while gaming and having multiple other programs open.

Cons: None.

EVGA 02G-P4-2763-RX GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card Factory Refurbished
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card has worked like a charm for me so far! I am able to max out all my games, including: Borderlands 2, Portal 2, Batman Arkham City, Tomb Raider, and a lot more. The PhysX effects work flawlessly even while playing Borderlands 2 multiplayer using Krieg with Bloodsplosion, Flame of the Firehawk, Buzz Axe Bombardier, and The Meteor Shower Grenade. (If you play Borderlands, you know what I mean) The Nvidia experience software platform for the card works nice as well and makes driver updates a breeze. I've also done a little bit of editing in Adobe Premier with pleasing performance.

Cons: None - I'm a very happy customer.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried more taxing things such as shadow play during my gaming, but I don't think that will have a noticeable impact on performance of the card.

APEVIA X-Hermes X-HERMES-BL Black/Blue Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Side Window-Blue
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Reasonably inexpensive case for what you get. The massive fan in conjunction with the other numerous stock fans provides great cooling for my rig with its i5 haswell (stock cpu fan) and gtx760 (evga 02g-p4-2763-rx) graphics card. Fan noise typically doesn't make much of a difference to me because I almost always have the ceiling fan on in my room, so I never pay attention or notice the sound of the case fans. the cable management was easy to arrange in the case as well (partially due to having a modular power supply).

Cons: Some of the plastic on the front of the case feels kind of cheap, and the button press of the power and reset buttons feels uneven. When I first began using the case, I also noticed that the front I/O panel was sunken in on one side. Remedying this only required me to open the case and press the panel from behind so that it snapped the rest of the way forward into place. Although it was annoying that it wasn't already in its proper place, it was a very minor hassle to fix. I am also having trouble getting the audio ports to work on the front panel. Not sure if the problem is with the mobo or the case, but my bet s on the case.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I think the case is pretty good and looks nice despite some of its shortcomings. It serves its job well in my value gaming rig (<$1000).
