PNY VCGGTX660TXPB G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: I'd been waiting for the right card for my price/performance needs. When this card dropped, I paired it with an AMD Vishera 8320 and 16GB of Gskill ripjaws. A modest build on an MSI 970A-G46, it far exceeded expectations.

The card I used previously wasn't a sloucher. I was using a Galaxy GTX 465 and it was running fine. I upgraded because I wanted to future proof my system and I was building a second computer to put the GTX 465 in.

TL-DR: If you don't want to spend 400+ on a higher end GTX card, this one will do just fine. It's fast as h3ll and it runs cool/quiet.

Cons: I ordered mine months ago and missed the Metro: Last Light coupon. Oh well.

Other Thoughts: You won't be disappointed in this card. It's extremely fast and stable. I'm looking into grabbing a second for SLI soon.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: I have been using a Phenom II 970 for a while now and decided to future proof my rig a bit by dropping in a newer CPU. Honestly this thing crushes anything I throw at it to a fine dust. This CPU is trading blows with the Intel i5's, which are slightly more expensive. If you buy this expecting it to smoke a top end i7, you're gonna have a bad time. Even still, it is on par with a mid range i7 in many benchmarks, and significantly cheaper.

Paired up with the Zalman CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler (also purchased from Newegg) it runs quiet and cool.

Shipped on the day I ordered it and arrived the next afternoon.

Cons: 8 integer cores but only 4 floating point units is why this CPU is something of a disappointment to some enthusiasts, acting more like a quad core with Hyper-Threading, because at this time many applications will only utilize the first integer core per FPU.

To be clear, this is not really a fault of the hardware. It's a radical departure from previous architectures. If software was developed to take advantage of the Piledriver's two integer cores per FPU, it would very likely be comparable to a top end i7.

Other Thoughts: If you want plenty of horsepower for a low cost and you have a good power supply, it's really hard to beat this right now.

Pros: Very fast, runs Crysis 3 at 1920×1080 on high without so much as a hiccup. I've got it driving two 22 inch LED's and the picture quality is great. I don't hear the noise others have mentioned, but my system is packed with cooling fans so it might just be drowned out.

Cons: It wasn't free? The non-TI GTX 660 is cheaper by a good bit, but has significantly less CUDA cores. If I was on a tighter budget I would have probably gotten the 660.
