1 out of 5 eggs Was Excited For A Powerful Card with Plenty of RAM... But it failed 02/11/2017

This review is from: ASUS ROG Radeon RX 480 STRIX-RX480-O8G-GAMING 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Well, my desktop resolution is better.
Oh, and the monitoring tools are cool (reminds me of the AI Suite monitoring that came with my Asus Sabertooth board)

Cons: It crashes to a gray screen that requires manual reboot EVERY TIME I play a graphics intensive game. Rocket League? Seems like it runs alright, for some reason doesn't look as good as it did on my GTX 770 2GB card. Assassins Creed Syndicate? Lol crashes as soon as I click "Start Story" from the game menu. GTA V? Well, the game loads, but I can only explore Los Santos for about 5 minutes before I get the same crash to gray screen.

Other Thoughts: I'm pretty certain I've installed everything correctly, I've got the right drivers, I uninstalled all the old GTX drivers, etc. I should have plenty enough power with my 750w power supply, I honestly don't know why this card just won't work. I put in support request in with Asus, hopefully they respond soon and I can bump this review from 1 to 5 eggs. (I'll have a laugh if they respond to this faster than the support ticket)

Mad Catz R.A.T.5 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - Matte Black

5 out of 5 eggs Definitely Impressed 06/10/2013

This review is from: Mad Catz R.A.T.5 Gaming Mouse for PC and Mac - Matte Black

Pros: After using cheap mice for most of my life, upgrading to the Cyborg R.A.T. 5 has made me never want to use a cheap mouse again. I love the feel and all of the customizable features. Also it's really smooth moving around, you don't really even need a mouse pad. Drivers are easy to install and the software is great.

Cons: The mouse is great, but when I showed it off to my roommate, I was instantly let down when he showed me all the features that come with his Cyborg R.A.T. 7. It really made me wish I had bought the better model, alas the R.A.T. 5 should work just fine for me.

ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Worked the first time I tried booting it up, which is something I can't say about the Gigabyte board I originally bought for my setup. Honestly, it was just a relief that I finally found a working motherboard. The UEFI Bios is really easy to use as well. Great quality board though, I've never been disappointed with an Asus product.

Cons: No onboard USB 3.0 header. Also only has normal audio jacks (would've liked to have the surround sound jacks, but I guess I can live without them). One issue we did have on installation was the placement of the screw holes. It was really hard to get them to line up and the board doesn't have the third row of screw holes on the right side/isn't big enough to reach that far in an ATX case. That said, it was really nerve racking trying to push down with enough force to plug in the 24 pin connector while trying to keep from cracking the board because of the massive overhang where there is nothing under the board to give it support.
