EVGA SuperClocked w/ ACX Cooling 02G-P4-2774-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card from EVGA is definitely one of the best value cards for gaming right now. It's basically a GTX 680 but with the new features from the 700 series and it runs all of my games at 1080p at the highest settings. The ACX cooler runs the factory overclock at less than 80 degrees at 50% fan rpm and the EVGA PrecisionX software is great for overclocking it even farther. The cooler is quiet. The card has a TDP of 250 watts and only requires one 6 pin and one 8 pin connector. The 2 gigabytes of memory is more than enough for 1080p. The card supports all of the exclusive Nvidia features like G-sync, PhysX, GPU Boost, Adaptive V-sync, and 3-way SLI. It has 7 gigabit memory! It's also relatively compact considering that it's a high end GPU.

Cons: Only comes with one free game as opposed to the AMD never settle bundle. Doesn't come with a backplate, but one is available for purchase separately (the backplate looks great). Doesn't support 4 way SLI.

Other Thoughts: It's hard to find a card that performs this well, looks this great, and supports all of the latest features for this price. For someone running a 1080p display, this card is more than enough for the latest games and is a great buy!

AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus Quad-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM3 95W ADX620WFGIBOX Processor
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Is under 100 dollars (even though it was 120 when I first got it.) Is better than Intel Core 2 Quad and almost as good as i5 for way way cheaper. Plays very fast paced and huge games with no problem and frames are never slow and are never jerky. It only gets too 100% usage when im doing a skype call and streaming HD video. It fit with a lot of chipsets, motherboards, and AM3 is a nice socket. I was able to overclock it to 3.1 ghz stable with stock cooler at 60c. I consider that really good. Almost as good as Phenom II X4 except it doesn't have L3 cache. Everything I do which involves some pretty intensive stuff runs perfectly and smoothly. I don't think AMD could have done a better job on this CPU.

Cons: Doesn't have L3 cache. Only 4 cores. Only 2.6 GHZ but you get what you pay for. I mean it is like 80 dollars now. If you pay more you get more. Besides that no cons.

Other Thoughts: I think AMD did a really good job with this CPU and it is the perfect balance of value, performance, energy efficiency, reliability, midrange, budget, and enterprise all in one. I don't think I could have chose a better CPU for 100 dollars.
By the way my specs are:

XION Gaming Series Armor X AXP-ARM001-BL Black with Blue LED Light Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Looks really cool
Comes with two fans that are good enough
Fits two more which is really good
Has a nice front door which covers the optical drives
Buttons on top for placement on the floor
Not that hard to install things
There is enough room
Has good quality buttons

Cons: Screws just randomly placed in the bag which is not helpful
Front fan is more for show then for ventilation
Doesn't have a second back fan
Takes four screws to mount drives
Sometimes very hard to get expansion slots open without breaking the case but after the first time it gets easier

Other Thoughts: I have had this case for a year now and it has served me well for the price. It fits everything and even though it can be a bit annoying to have to look for the right screws and then need four of them to mount a drive, this is really the only big thing that Xion could have done better with this case.
My Specs:
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 620
Case: This Case
