Great Card

EVGA 02G-P3-1569-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win (Fermi) 2GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
EVGA 02G-P3-1569-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win (Fermi) 2GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: The GTX 560 Ti 2win is an awesome card. Lots of performance for one card. The only game I've tested is Skyrim. Currently running at all settings maxed 2560X1600 around 50-60 FPS. With a Q9450 and 8Gb of DDR3. Windows index of 7.9 With a old Motherboard and CPU this card still very very fast.

Cons: The only reason this card did not get 5 eggs is the software. After talking to EVGA support(which is amazing) you need a SLI profile for the game. So if the program does not have a supported SLI profile the program will only see one 560 Ti GPU. As far as the futuremark benchmark programs the 3Dmark 06 and 3d Mark 11 only sees 1 GPU. As soon as a new driver is released im sure will fix all of the issues with this card.

Overall Review: The only other thoughts that i would have on this card would be the power. This card needs ALOT of power. 700 watts AND you need you 12v rail to provide 50Amps. That was the only other problem i ran into besides the drivers. And that was the a problem with the card rather a issue with the PSU. After talking to EVGA support theres no support for Quad Sli. BUT there still is a Sli brige connecter so the hardware compatability is there just need a good Firmware update in the future.

Pros: Good Price. Fit in the Cooler Master HAF X blue case. Nice LED lights.

Cons: Only spins at 556RPM.

Overall Review: Because it only spins at 550RPM is the only reason why its 3 eggs. New egg rocks great shipping and awesome prices.

Intel Core i7-3930K - Core i7 3rd Gen Sandy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor - BX80619i73930K
Intel Core i7-3930K - Core i7 3rd Gen Sandy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor - BX80619i73930K

Pros: Extremely power CPU. Can hold anything I throw at it. Running on water at 4.5Ghz. Stable for over 6 months

Cons: HOT! HOT! HOT! HOT! On a thermatake Big Water 760 plus. Added a 120mm Fan for a push & Pull. And upgraded the Water Block to the XSPC RayStorm. (had to get elseware, Newegg does not have it) CPU still runs over 75C under full load with Prime95

Overall Review: A great CPU. If your only playing games get the 3770 and save a few dollars.

Cooler Master HAF X Blue

Cooler Master HAF X Blue Edition - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0
Cooler Master HAF X Blue Edition - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0

Pros: Awesome case. Can fit 5 Hard Drives and 6 Optical Drives. Lots of room. Great wire management. Cover for PSU makes everything look clean.

Cons: Top 200mm fan only spins at 365 RPM. that's only half of the 700rom it should be. Bought a 200mm fan for the top and it is a Cooler Master as well and it only spins at 550RPM Only other con is the Hole for the CPU is too small for the LGA 2011.

Overall Review: Only comes with 1 SSD bracket do plan ahead. Disappointed I had to buy a 2nd 200mm fan for the top of the case. Also buy a 120mm fan for the video card cover! This case is a monster make sure you measure the spot before you buy!

Awesome CPU
