PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 380 DirectX 12 AXR9 380 4GBD5-PPDHE 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card

Pros: Really fast card, good bit of memory and good value for the money.

Cons: Driver instability in Windows 10 - not sure if issues with card (unlikely) or drivers from AMD or if it's just a Windows 10 thing.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if the rebate processing folks actually LOOKED at the documentation sent instead of just denying rebate claims. In my case they've said I didn't include the receipt but it's clearly there in the scanned documentation they've made available for me to review. Don't count on the rebate definitely holds true in this case.

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: So far I'm VERY impressed with the card and how it works out of the box. I'm sure you could overclock to squeeze some more out of it, but it does what I need the way it comes.

Cons: Not free? I put this in an Alienware Graphics Amplifier and tried it out with the new Alienware 13, but both of those went back due to driver issues. The card did what it should and worked great. I have a real desktop on the way and plan on putting it in there for more long-term use.

Other Thoughts: I got myself a g-sync capable monitor too and I'm planning on really using all of the features it offers. From the little bit I was able to use this card,it was impressive and quiet.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9S-4GBRL

Pros: I've got six of these in my home lab, it works well holds up and is generally great. I started having BSOD's and yup, it turned out to be a bad stick, I contacted G.Skill for an RMA and it was as easy as sending it back and they had me a new stick of memory in no time. VERY happy with the product and the support from the manufacturer.

Cons: I cannot think of any.
