MSI Gaming N780 TF 3GD5/OC G-SYNC Support  GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

1 out of 5 eggs Card is probably great, Newegg's price guarantee not so great 12/19/2013

This review is from: MSI Gaming N780 TF 3GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Probably plows through most games, but I don't know yet because I have to send it back and repurchase to get the three game codes.

Cons: IronEgg Price Guarantee may work against competitor's prices, but apparently not against Newegg's own prices.

Other Thoughts: The day the card was delivered (12/17), three free games were added but the masterpass promo ended as you can't apply it when the games are included. The three games are worth more to me than the promo. So, I inquired via email to Newegg. No answer after two days. Entered chat with Newegg CSR Paige (who was very polite). They offered Batman Origins but refused the other two game codes. So, I got an RMA, and will have to deal with the hassle of returning this card only to repurchase an identical card with the codes. The only winner here is UPS. After many years and many thousands of dollars as a loyal and satisfied Newegg customer, I can no longer shop or refer others to shop here. With thousands of competitors, this kind of stuff makes all the difference.

CORSAIR CX series CX500 500W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It works even with my Gigabyte 560 Ti 448 core that lists 550w as a minimum requirement. Tested under stress of memtest and many hours of BF3 on Ultra. After one week, so far so good.

Cables were long enough to wrap behind the mobo plate to keep the interior of my case clean, although a couple were just barely long enough.

System specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz
Gigabyte 560 Ti 448 core
G.Skill Ripjaw 1333 2x4GB
Lite-On DVD-RW
Edimax PCI Wireless N Card
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

Cons: Not Corsair's fault, but Newegg took over a week just to process my order, let alone ship, so I didn't have time to submit the rebate. Buyer beware... don't depend on the rebate for making your decision.

Other Thoughts: Have only had it a week but I've stressed it under full load for many hours of BF3 on Ultra and memtest.
