ASUS GeForce GTX 750 GTX750-DCSL-2GD5 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quiet, quiet, quiet. This is a very good mid-range card, 512 cuda cores, 2GB 128 bit GDDR5 memory. Works great in linux (Xubuntu 14.04) with the latest edgers drivers (340.76). No additional power connection is needed. Runs very cool.

Cons: The circuit board feels a little flimsy compared to my previous cards. It's not a big deal since I'm not using it as a coffee table, but I would suggest that Asus use a board that is more firm, especially considering how big the heat sink is on this card.

Other Thoughts: Fanless is the best feature of this card. It idles between 32 and 37 C, and 45 C was the highest temperature I saw when doing a stress test.

GIGABYTE GA-H81M-S2PH LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is a good, inexpensive no frills motherboard. I rebuilt 3 computers this month using this particular model, and it worked out fairly well. Having two PCI slots is great for legacy devices, like my older wifi card. Works great with both Windows 7 and Xubuntu 14.04.

Cons: One of the motherboards takes 15 seconds to shutdown, still trying to solve that issue.

Other Thoughts: It looks really tiny inside a standard ATX case. Also, if you have problems with LED's staying on after shutdown (such as a card reader), you may need to enable ErP in the BIOS. I also recommend downloading the PDF manual from GIGABYTE's website. You'll want to pay close attention to the front panel header. The positive and negative pins are different compared to my previous Intel motherboard.

Rosewill RCR-IC001 - 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy to install, reads a variety of cards, looks nice, and provides an additional front USB port.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I installed two on other computers before ordering this one for myself. And I can say that all three have worked as they should without issue.
