EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectX 11 02G-P4-3660-KR 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Same GPU chip as the flagship 680 for half the price
Runs all of my games at the highest settings in 1080p at 100+ fps while still supporting two additional displays.

Cons: Not really sure why DisplayPort is on these cards (not EVGA's fault, Nvidia made the change). Made me get an adapter to use.

Other Thoughts: Bought one of these to replace my pair of XFX 9600 GSOs. It amazes me how far graphics cards have come in the last three and a half years. Back then there just weren't any cards that supported more than two displays at a time, now they all do. In terms of processors, this card has six times more than both of my old cards put together.
I have this thing powering:
2x 19" Hanns G at 1440x900
1x 27" AOC at 1920x1080
1x 37" Toshiba Television at 1920x1080

AOC e2752Vh Glossy Black Bezel 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very bright display (configurable)
Gorgeous and realistic color depth
Lots of screen real estate for your money

Cons: The stand is a flimsy piece of plastic. I know this is commonplace on large, cheap monitors, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
The buttons are stiff and make an annoying clicking noise when depressed.
To give an example of how flimsy the stand is, hitting any of the buttons causes the display to sway back and forth profusely.

Other Thoughts: My first 1080p monitor and I am pretty happy with it. I will probably get a separate stand for this monitor because it sways back and forth every time I barely move my desk.

Creative Sound Blaster Zx 116dB PCIe Gaming Sound Card with 600 ohm Headphone Amp and Desktop Audio Control Module
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: There is a noticeable improvement in sound quality over the on-board sound on my motherboard.

Cons: The software seems very under-developed. If you watched the interview with the Creative rep on the NeweggTV channel, they made it out to sound like a lot more than it actually is.
There is a bug with multi-monitor setups where the sound starts only coming out of one speaker when you drag a sound-producing window from one monitor to another. Toggling from Headphones to Speakers and back (or vica versa) fixes it, but its still very annoying.
The sound quality isn't nearly as good as my old ASUS Xonar card.
The red LED on the card is BRIGHT and you can't turn it off.

Other Thoughts: It's not a bad card, but it is not all that they made it out to be either. At this price point on such a new card I was expecting improvements over my old sound card, but I haven't found any.
