Pros: -Stays cool and quiet
Cons: - Everything else
-Can't run much of anything at 144 FPS for my 144Hz monitor. CS:GO used to run over 200 FPS on my 7950. Now I'm lucky if I stay above 60.
-Can't even run Fallout 4 anymore. Lowest settings and I'm still getting a whopping 20 FPS.
-Black artifacts appearing all the time in my games.
-Driver updates haven't fixed diddly.
I was playing on integrated graphics for a while when my 7950 burned out and honestly, the 1060 isn't much of a step up from good ol Intel HD 4000 graphics. First and last nvidia card I will ever buy. After I buy a new shotgun, the 1060 is going to be the first target I test it out on and I'm building a new rig, hopefully with something that actually works.
This review is from: AOC e2351F Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 20,000,000:1
Pros: Very bright, sharp picture with awesome contrast. The viewing angle is great and the touch controls on the front are easy to use.
It's easy to switch between inputs which is nice because I have my desktop hooked up over DVI and my laptop hooked up over D-SUB.
The size is perfect for gaming or web browsing, as anything really over 24" gets to be too big in my opinion.
The monitor itself is very slim and light and has a solid build quality.
Cons: absolutely none so farREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade
Pros: I decided to keep windows 7 Home Premium on my HDD while upgrading to 8 on my SSD and so far I'm pretty happy.
Its Pretty Clean
It is compatible with all my previous running programs
It took less than 20 minutes to be completely up and going.
Cons: Metro... It's the only thing I dont really like too much about it, but I think it's just a matter of getting used to it. Many people had difficulty transitioning from fly out menus from XP to 7, so I'm giving it a try.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I have to give it five stars. It works well and it is fairly user friendly.READ FULL REVIEW
