a great cooler for the price! has been running on a very overclocked system and has not exceeded 60 degrees on full load, very quiet, looks great and was very straight forward to install.

2.0 out of 5 stars 970GTX nowhere near worth it over AMD's R9 390, 3 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An okay card for now but with nvidia lying about how much memory this had at a pretty disappointing 3.5GB not 4GB and DX12 favouring AMD GPU's i cannot recommend this card at all and we are talking huge improvements over AMD's hardware on DX12 which every game will be using in the very very near future in fact some games are now, to give you an example the AMD R9 390 that is priced at pretty much the exact same price as a 970GTX is in recent benchmarks producing more draw calls and outperforming a TITAN X!!! which is nvidias flagship £900 GPU! fortunately for me my 970 GTX (worked perfectly before) died and i bought an AMD R9 390 to replace it, best decision i made for my PC! the 970 GTX overclocks well, it is quiet, cool and is power efficient but its not future proof and gets stomped by AMD's similar priced R9 390.

5.0 out of 5 stars MONSTER!!!, 28 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic card, in short its a monster and feels like a monster too with a good amount of weight which it gives a great quality feel, i had an MSI 970GTX before which died only after 2 weeks along with my MOBO (unsure what caused the failure out of the two but was working fine until) anyhow being with nvidia for awhile i was set on getting another 970 thinking that possibly my first was either faulty or that it was just my motherboard, however after much research i came across this card and decided to take the plunge or what i would say step up to the R9 390

firstly aesthetically this card is pleasing to the eye and it looks fantastic much better than its rival (970GTX that doesnt even have a backplate) however it is very wide so take note on this especially if you are thinking of crossfiring with another just make sure your motherboards PCIE slots are a good distance apart, its heavy and i like the fact that it is it feels quality and perfect colour for my red and black build

reasons why i picked this card over the 970:
8GB of ram
better pixel rate
better float point performance
better shading units
better texture mapping units
better render output processors

gaming side of things i love it im running everything on max settings it doesnt break a sweat, though i feel i can get abit more out of the R9 390 if i upgraded my CPU (which i plan to do) which at the moment is an overclocked AMD FX6350 saying that though the R9 390 matched with this CPU still gives very good results, it was faster than my 970GTX

the 8GB of ram is an obvious choice over its rivals 3.5GB of ram or 4GB if you count the slow extra 500mb, alot of people say 8GB of ram is overkill but some games have used over that especially if your considering modding and also nobody knows what the future holds but i am certainly much happier knowing i have 8GB if i need it making this card much more future proof, with DX12 on the way AMD's cards are also supposed to be showing alot more of what they are capable of

if you are set on getting this card i would recommend a 650w (minimum) PSU or above, it is quite power hungry but not drastically, its not as efficient as the 970GTX and it is a little bit louder under load aswell as running slightly hotter

this isnt a rebranded 290x as some would say, its just running on the same architecture thats been refreshed and a ton of stuff added to it and can be overclocked alot further than a 290x

all in all i am very very happy i got this card much happier than i was with my 970GTX (RIP) which was still a great card when it was alive, just not as good overall

5.0 out of 5 stars BEAST for the value, 8 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i've had this PC for 2 weeks now and have enjoyed every minute of it, if you enjoy your gaming I very much recommend this, this has a great CPU being the AMD FX 6350 which is a 6 core so very future proof and the Zotac 660GTX 2GB synergy edition graphics card which is a very beasty and respectable mid range card, very quiet, looks great and arrived on time was also nice to get a text from the company telling me when it would be dispatched and what time my order was arriving on the day, so far games I have run

ROME 2= ULTRA....probably one of the most demanding games on the market right now!
Shogun 2=ULTRA
Mass effect 2=MAXED
Borderlands 2=MAXED
Planetside 2=MAXED
Rising storm/ Red orchestra=MAXED

This is a great system for anyone wanting to up there gaming and join the great world of PC gaming, it has no problems doing your normal PC web browsing and windows applications and can handle multitasking easy, this system beats next gen consoles as you can run games in 1080P and because its a PC you can alter graphic options on any game to suit your needs where as the new PS4 and Xbox one consoles are capped usually on a medium type setting, so far I have loved it and I think you would struggle to build a PC in this spec from scratch for less which means great value and solves the headache and time of actually building it, ADMI have a great reputation aswell for being friendly and willing to help you out if you have any problems which is nice to know, thumbs up!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic, 2 Jun. 2014
insomnium have captured the true essence of melodic death metal I find it an odd mix because its brutal yet soothing I can quite easily put my headphones in and chill to there songs as much as I can pump out a gym session with aggression listening to it, either way it is fantastic and shadows of the dying sun is a truly great album love the guitar riffs especially "while we sleep" and "lose tonight" but every single song to me has a great moment in it, there must be something in finlands water because there producing some top notch bands, keep going insomnium!

5.0 out of 5 stars very good for the price, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
really impressed with this headset, sound quality shouldn't be this good for such a cheap headset, I have used it for gaming and listened to my favourite metal bands through it as I browse the web etc and its great not to mention comfortable to wear, I haven't had the headset long so cannot comment on its durability but if it lasts I cannot see a reason why I would buy some of the headset's I have seen for twice the price of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars cant go wrong, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
really impressed with this package
*keyboard illuminates lovely and clear, looks smart, buttons are not sticky and all work

*mouse looks awesome I love the way the colours change, very good for big hands like myself which can be problematic when buying a mouse, feels really good in your hand very responsive etc

all in all for the price you pay you cannot go wrong with this package, they both do there job and look good.
