MSI Gaming N760 TF 4GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This card is a powerhouse. The 760 is a great card no matter what manufacturer you buy from, and since the 770s and 780s are out these 760s have dropped in price. While the 770s will give you "better" performance, the 760s pack more power per dollar and ultimately you wont see much difference between the two. While 4GB is a huge amount of VRAM and many people claim it will "go unused", I can tell you for a fact that modded Skyrim loves to dip into extra VRAM. This card will last you for a long time and will be able to tackle next-gen games that will undoubtedly require more and more VRAM.

Cons: None, this card is fantastic.

Other Thoughts: As many reviews here have mentioned, this card is HUGE. I have a CoolerMaster HAF 12 Mid size case, my prior GPU was a MSI GTX560. I knew the 760 would fit, but only just. There really is hardly any room. Not that this is an issue, as long as you have your wires organized it wont be a problem at all. Additionally, the power supply inputs are on the side of the card facing toward you, so its easy to install.

The only other thing is that this card can get loud. Not ridiculous levels, but when you are playing a game or doing something that is making the card get warmed up it can get noticeably noisy. But again, its nothing that I would consider "too much" or something that would become a distraction.

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I52500K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Can handle everything I throw at it. Advertised as 3.3ghz, but mine regularly averages 3.4 without overclocking. Just a great, great processor. Gotta love Intel.

Cons: I haven't noticed any negative aspects of this processor.

Other Thoughts: Has run every game I have at the highest settings and doesn't even blink. Definitely pick this processor up! It practically BEGS to be overclocked! Even if you don't OC it, it will still perform admirably.

Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Its very roomy for a mid-size case. Doesn't have a lot of extra features or options, but it works perfectly well. Has enough expansion bays for any type of hardware you would need. Excellent air flow.

Cons: Could have better cable management, but its not that big of a deal, you just have to work a bit harder especially if your power supply unit has all the extra cables pre-attached.

Other Thoughts: You might want to consider adding an extra 150mm fan to the front if you plan on having a hard drive and SSD, plus the case is built with air flow being the #1 priority so adding an extra 150mm fan is a must.
