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: Why post if you dont own one or use one. The card doesnt come with room service as well... 1egg. This card was designed for a specific application. Sure it be nice to have 4 of these running sli but they werent designed for that nor at the moment is anything else, because that would be like octa-sli

Cons: Newegg should allow an EGG ratting for non owners, sure allow comments, but not an EGG rating unless you actually own/use something. I know it is impossible, just saying

LG 29LN450W Glossy Black 29" HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 300 cd/m2 1,000,000:1 Built-in Speakers & TV tuner
LG 29LN450W Glossy Black 29" HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor IPS 300 cd/m2 1,000,000:1 Built-in Speakers & TV tuner

Pros: Picture quality seems OK, nothing mind blowing but what you would expect from todays monitors.

Cons: Terrible software, the split screen software is very buggie. Randomly goes into power saving mode while in sue and will not rewake unless you physically turn monitor back on. Split screen software will randomly resize the windows to about 3x5 window and you have to manually stretch them back out

Overall Review: LG customer service sounds like a teen age party. I had the first CS person tell me repeatedly that it was my graphics card that it didn't handle 2560x1080 resolution. I told him it was an EVGA 680 and it could handle this just fine. they have a script that they go through trying to blame every other piece of your machine other than their product. Would not recommend, especially if your maiinterestte is the software. Will be the last LG product I purchase. Should have went with Samsung or Asus.

Great Card Terrible Software

ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card ENGTX560 TI DCII TOP/2DI/1GD5
ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card ENGTX560 TI DCII TOP/2DI/1GD5

Pros: Great performing card, and in my opinion one of the BEST LOOKING cards out there. New Bios fixed most my problems with high fan and noise

Cons: Software that came with it is a joke. SmartDoctor does its job ok but is so lacking and looks terrible. Its big ugly and it the way. Doesnt move around well and doesnt stay put upon reboot. Is it too hard to ask that all teh info temp and fan speed be in one place or be able to see at same time. A simple box style UI that fits well in the corner that has all the options and info in one place.

Overall Review: ASUS needs to revamp the UI for SmartDoctor and fire the 12 year old kid that designed it or maybe fire the 30 something thst made it and hire a 12yo to design it. Everyone says use Afterburner (MSI) but hate having to use another companies software with my card, although I have tried it. Smart Doctor with its hyperDrive settings and thermal controls do work well and seems to control the fan and temp better on AUTO than Afterburner. Smart Doctor is just so darn ugly

SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) F-MZ-7PC064DAM
SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) F-MZ-7PC064DAM

Pros: @Entact- If you would read more carefully, what they are stating is that the pwer consumption of these are so low it doesnt drain the battery. ie allows longer run time on same battery. I personally bought this for that simple reason as my laptop is sata2 and will never see the speeds of sata3. I wanted to extend my laptops use time under a single charge with the benifit of SSD under shaking and vibrations.

Cons: @The Dude- I was also going to buy 2 of these for a PC build and had the same idea abut RAID0, but from my research RAID) and SSD dont play nice together. Do your own research though and also consider TRIM aspect. I have seen the video dimenstrations of multiple SSD and their crazy speed but if you check into it further there are allot of draw backs. Hopefully as SSD become more mainstream they will over come these problems of degrading and RAID controller support with TRIM

Overall Review: Bought mine when they were 126 I think and am very happy but hate after you buy something they go on sale 30 cheaper... Would be nice if Newegg offered 30day price matching ...lol ya right.

SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC064D/AM 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Desktop Upgrade Kit

Pros: Power consumption was the main draw for me on this SSD. I actually got this for a laptop, am gong to use the drive adapter later ina PC build. My laptop will never see the speed from this thing as its just sata2, but it does help with battery life. Going to try it in the PC build and if its everything its suppost to be will buy another (prolly 128) for the PC build befor returning this to the laptop. Looks nice (sept the sticker on the bottom)

Cons: ugly sticker on the bottom
