EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-4995-KR 6GB SC+ GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling w/ Free Installed Backplate Graphics Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This thing is crazy fast for the price and is perfect for 2560x1440 gaming (60 FPS in Witcher 3 ultra + hairworks).

I was also lucky enough to get a decently binned card. My ASIC quality is 79.6% and overclocks on air up to 1533mhz and +450 on the memory. Gets a 21,614 graphics score in Fire Strike (normal) which is going to be really tough to beat without water cooling.

Cons: - From tech reviews, backplate is all show no go
- Plastic cooler
- Fan sounds like a jet engine when you start to really push the card, but that's to be expected I guess
- It's not a Classified?

Other Thoughts: EVGA continues to deliver solid products and will remain my goto manufacturer for GPUs and PSUs.

EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 220-P2-1000-XR 80+ PLATINUM 1000W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Fully modular cables is great - only use what you need
- Comes with a ton of cables in the box
- Exact same size as my previous 750w PSU
- Works?

Cons: - Had more trouble connecting this motherboard cable than I did with my last PSU. Not a major issue though.

Other Thoughts: There's not much to say. I needed a 1000w power supply to handle 2 very high-end video cards in SLI and this thing does the job. Swapping out my old power supply for this one was a painless experience.

I normally buy EVGA video cards and Corsair power supplies. I think I'm going to stick with EVGA power supplies in the future. They make great stuff.

CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Shockingly powerful enough to handle 2x GTX680s in SLI. I was told it could, but I had my doubts. I figured you'd need more power.

The cables are a great length. Ships with plenty of cords. Modular PSUs are always great. Seriously, this is amazing for the money.

Cons: I can not predict the future. At present, NONE.
