EVGA SSC GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 01G-P4-3652-KR 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: * Compact size, would fit in cramped cases
* Great gaming performance at a good price
* Includes HD Audio
* Doesn't run too hot, fan stays revved down most of the time

Cons: * If the fan does rev up to 50% or more it is a bit too noisy, rarely happens

Other Thoughts: I built a system using this card, a Pentium G860, and Biostar H77MU3 board, 8 gigs of ram. Picked the card up with a $20 rebate so the value is great!

I've been running Assassin's Creed III on the highest settings with 50-60fps and the hottest the card has gotten is 50c. Mostly it runs at 40c while I'm gaming and idles at 25-28c. The fan stays down around 20-35% and isn't too noisy at those levels.

I was also surprised to find that the card has HD Audio support and can drive audio over the DVI ports when using an HDMI adapter. I don't have a mini HDMI cable right now so I am using a DVI-HDMI adapter and was shocked when audio started coming out of my TV after I got the drivers all installed!

Very pleased with this card!

5 out of 5 eggs Great board for my budget rig! 01/12/2013

This review is from: BIOSTAR H77MU3 LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: * Supports integrated graphics
* PCI express 3.0
* USB 3
* SATA III, lots of SATA ports

Cons: PIC express 3.0 slot not clearly labeled in any of the included documentation. Not a huge issue for me since I don't have a CPU that supports it.

Other Thoughts: I paired this with Pentium G860, in a Thermaltake V3 Black Edition case with the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB video card to build a budget gaming rig. It all came together nicely with no trouble. This seems like it'll be a great board to me!

4 out of 5 eggs Free is good, Steam would be nice 01/10/2013

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - Assassin's Creed III Game Coupon

Pros: It's free, and it's Assassin's Creed III. I'd planned on getting the game anyway.

Cons: It's not on Steam, it's on UPlay from Ubisoft.

Other Thoughts: Yeah, it would be nicer and far easier if they had done this through Steam. I'm guessing Ubi figures people will buy a Steam copy after they decide they like the game... Or think that this is a good way to get people using their platform.

Still, how can you complain about a free game?
