SilverStone S12G-550 Review reported at 02:26 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
"The Seasonic S12G-550, like the G-550 before it, is an excellent power supply that is probably a better power supply than the class of products that Seasonic is marketing it as. Indeed, this is due to the fact that this unit exhibits a build quality that is better than most anything in this class, excellent voltage regulation that just barely trails the higher end Seasonic products we have seen, excellent DC Output Quality, excellent efficiency, and, to a lesser degree, very good Transient Load Test results."

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card is designed for mainstream 1080p gaming with moderate settings.

Asus GeForce GTX 750 OC Review reported at 02:12 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"NVIDIA's MSRP for the GTX 750 non-Ti is $119, ASUS adds another $20 price premium for their custom OC version. I find both prices quite steep, even with the amazing power consumption considered. GTX 650 at $100 is a much better deal, and GTX 650 Ti Boost was only $130 before it was pulled out of the market - with much better performance and very quiet, too. If you consider yourself a serious gamer you should really save up a bit more to be able to purchase a card that provides better framerates. On the other hand, as a casual gamer, with lots of web browsing and productity, the GTX 750 could be an interesting option thanks to its super low noise levels and power efficient operation."

MSI N750Ti TF 2GD5/OC Review reported at 02:03 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Overall I have to say that this latest offering hits the mark with a target price of $149 for the GTX 750 Ti 2GB, with a 1GB card to be offered later this month at $139. The GTX 750 will list a target price of $119. MSI's GTX 750 Gaming version should see a small up charge for the added feature set. All in all the gaming performance is there at 1080p with medium to high settings, allowing you to take advantage of the rest of the NVIDIA ecosystem.

MSI N750Ti TF 2GD5/OC Review reported at 02:00 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
According to MSI, the GTX 750 Ti Gaming will retail for $200, which is a hefty $50 markup over the reference design price. I guess the fancy cooler is the biggest factor in that price increase. At $200, the card is way overpriced though, especially when considering the performance it provides. There are plenty of alternatives around $150, like Radeon R7 265 or Palit's heavily overclocked GTX 750 Ti. None of these cards are as quiet as the MSI variant though, so if you absolutely must have the quietest card and price/performance doesn't matter much to you then the MSI GTX 750 Ti is worth considering.

Palit GeForce GTX 750 Ti StormX Dual Review reported at 01:57 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"While Palit's price increase is extremely reasonable and definitely makes this card the better buy over a stock-clocked, reference priced and cooled GTX 750 Ti, the general price for GTX 750 Ti is a bit high in my opinion. Thanks to Palit's massive overclock the card is competitively priced against AMD's R7 265 though, which is just $5 cheaper, but has much higher power consumption and is much more noisy. So if you are looking for the best price/performance around $150, then the Palit card should definitely be on your short list, but also look at Radeon R7 265 and used GTX 650 Ti Boost."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Review reported at 01:53 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
Had the GTX 750 Ti released just a couple of weeks ago before the announcement of the AMD Radeon R7 265, and before the sudden price changes it supposedly brought, the results would have been even stronger in NVIDIA's favor. Performance would have been more directly advantageous and we wouldn't have had to present many caveats between the comparisons. As it stands now NVIDIA's new mainstream baby is a great product that has a lot of advantages in power, noise and technology, but one that can't claim a dominant performance lead.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 750 Ti OC Review reported at 01:45 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
"So today we get an attempt to offer a desirable product at a more affordable price point and overall the GTX 750 Ti is a success on that front. The GTX 750 Ti is compact, runs reasonably cool, draws much less power than the competition and gives us comparable framerates. Add to that some nice additional features such as ShadowPlay and PhysX and we have a well-rounded product which gives the user a wide range of functionality without costing a huge amount."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Review reported at 01:36 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
NVIDIA's MSRP for the GTX 750 Ti is $149, which is not cheap. We've seen the faster GTX 650 Ti Boost retail around $130 until NVIDIA pulled it from the market, and GTX 650 Ti was only $100. AMD recently released the R7 265, which costs $149, too, but is 16% faster, making it the clear price/performance winner. If you are an entry-level gamer, looking for the best deal around the $150 mark, I'd consider looking for a GTX 650 Ti Boost first, maybe used, definitely consider R7 265, and then carefully weigh if the power consumption improvements are really worth the extra cost to you. As much as I love quiet and efficient cards, where GTX 750 Ti is the best option without doubt, I find NVIDIA's current GTX 750 Ti pricing a bit too high to really take over the market by storm. I am however anxiously waiting for NVIDIA's high-end Maxwell GPUs that could truly revolutionize gaming.

"With all of this in mind, for now, the GTX 750 Ti is the only game in town for those looking to upgrade an older system with an outdated power supply. Even if you have a better PSU, its excellent features, awesome power consumption numbers and good 1080P performance make it a perfect fit for just about anyone searching for an affordable, efficient GPU."

Mionix Naos 7000 Review reported at 01:16 PM
category: Mice     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
We are tempted to recommend the new series over the 8200 revisions because there is not a very big difference in DPI and they track wonderfully thanks to the ADNS 3310 sensor; the features we lose from the higher-priced variants should not matter at all.

Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire TK Stealth Review reported at 01:07 PM
category: Keyboards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Despite the small size of the product, we are faced with a well-designed and ergonomic keyboard. The coating present on the individual keycaps is great and CherryMX switches are smooth and without any uncertainties. We particularly enjoyed the presence of a keypuller inside the box. Despite being a rather basic and cheap accessory it is a great help in the removal of the individual keycaps.

OCZ Vector 150 & Vertex 460 Review reported at 01:01 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
One of the first SSD makers, OCZ has got its own Indilinx Barefoot 3 platform which is still going to be used in consumer-class SSDs, now with Toshiba's flash memory. However, the platform itself isn't cutting-edge anymore, so the two recently released drives, the Vector 150 and Vertex 460, can only compete in the middle price segment. OCZ just can't offer more progressive solutions right now.

Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC Review reported at 12:53 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
Thus, the GA-Z87X-OC is best used for its intended purpose, i.e. for overclocking on an open testbed. For a home PC, you may want to prefer some other models, perhaps even from some other brand, considering that Gigabyte’s LGA1150 products are somewhat inferior in terms of power consumption.

AMD FX-9590 & FX-9370 Review reported at 12:37 PM
category: Socket AM3+ CPUs     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
Summing everything up, the FX-9370 and FX-9590 lose to Intel’s top-end Haswell-based CPUs in their consumer properties and can hardly be interesting even for AMD’s loyal fans. AMD products can usually be used to build rather fast and cheap computers, but the senior Vishera-based CPUs are too expensive for that. They don’t offer anything that you don’t find in their more affordable FX series cousins except for the higher clock rates which don’t matter much in terms of practical performance. Moreover, all other FX series CPUs are Black Edition, so each of the less expensive 8-core AMD CPUs can be easily overclocked to about the same level as the FX-9370 or FX-9590.
