ASUS Radeon HD 7770 DirectX 11 HD7770-DCT-1GD5 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: bang for the buck, super quiet

Cons: 12% factory overclock? No, it crashes constantly at that setting, I have to lower clocks back to stock, and add 0.1 volts to the v core in order to use this card.

Anything more that than and I get constant driver crashes, and even a blue screen.

Furthermore, Furmark will run all day at the 12% overclock, and my score is the EXACT same as if i run stock clock speeds....

So long story short, Video card makers need to stop overclocking these cards in order to sell them, stability has to be maintained, no one likes a crashing machine.

If you insist on setting the VBIOS to a 12% overclock, please make a utility that allows you to correct the VBIOS to a stable setting.. Having to really on a program to run in the background to get a stable card, is annoying.. not only that these programs will sometimes set the card back to stock, and your gaming session will end abruptly.

Other Thoughts: I think my Cons list covers it.

Intel Core i3-3220 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1155 55W BX80637i33220 Desktop Processor                                                                                   Intel HD Graphics 2500

Pros: Fast, very low power consumption. high single thread performance.

Cons: not good for heavy multi threading (knew that when purchasing it

Other Thoughts: if I were to do it all over again, would have went with Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz

a little more expensive, but basically an I7 for 230 bucks.

ENERMAX Noisetaker EG475P-VE-SFMA 470W ATX12V Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome 12/22/2011

This review is from: ENERMAX Noisetaker EG475P-VE-SFMA 470W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: Clean power, This is my 3rd enermax, I have another 330 W that is 8 years old and it still runs perfect.

This 470W is the best power supply I have owned, I am actually going to run a 6870 on it when i get the money for an upgrade.. Enermax Power Supplies are good investments.

Cons: None, unless you dont like quiet, reliable, clean power.
