haven't heard of them

and TheOtis, I do realize it a public forum, and you did miss that he said he needed a monitor so if I insulted you I'm sorry but sometimes things like that can strike me in a odd way

anyways, I still stick to my suggestion, and if the "Black Edition" is only $10 more than the one I suggested if he really wants a card the hauls a** :freak:
No ya didn't, it was just a mistake and I didn't mean to come off in a rude way or insult anyone. If you've been around awhile ya should know I'm not one to drop in and say something that has nothing to do with the topic and throw it off, I just missed a key part about it at the bottom of the page, my mistake.

I haven't heard much about Powercooler either, I'm curious to know how their cards are, it seems to me they're generally a bit cheaper than other name brand video cards. I've never used one in any build I've ever put together because I haven't seen anyone use one or have seen anyone review one.

Back on being mobile - ASUS G551- 15.3" 1080p - Core i7 4710HQ - GTX 860M - 16GB DDR3 1600 - 512GB Samsung 850 Pro - Steam ID: TheOtis

just click on the links you like a add those to a cart on the egg,
if you need a new list with the GTX260 in it then just let us know

when you say "reciver" do you mean the wireless adapter? - D-Link WDA-1320 IEEE 802.11b/g 32-bit PCI Wireless G Desktop Adapter Up to 54Mbps Data Rates 64/128-bit WEP Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) - Wireless Adapters

Good choice, i would personally prefer the core 216 atm that card is great. As for powercolour i think I'm in the same boat as your guys. I don't know much about them at all. My guess is they could be like palit who do make good cards but people tend to stick to the well established brands regardless.
