Thanks, ordered. Been looking at a cheap laptop for in laws all around 250 all with celeron/emmc/low resolution, so 299 is good for me with 'proper' CPU and hdd drive. Should make the in-law support experience a little easier

You can get HDMI to DVI cables cheap enough or an adaptor for a few pounds, it'll make no difference to performance, HDMI would carry audio but most monitors have no speakers so no need for it, plus no HDMI licence costs for the manfucturer.

Would you not be better off getting a second hand 660 or so?


Depends on the requirements - older hardware doesn't support some newer features people might want. Also fairly sure the GTX 660 eats a lot more power than either of the cards people have been discussing here. If people want to look at second-hand there's loads of cards available that will be very powerful for the money.

Scottc1235 h, 10 m ago

Incorrect. The 750Ti is nearly double the performance.

Well, neither of them is that great actually.
Corsair CS650M is made by Great Wall (not CWT this time)
EVGA 650 GQ is made by FSP.
Neither is a top-tier OEM, and both Corsair and EVGA sell better supplies than this:
Corsair still have a few Seasonic made ones (AX760, AX850, and the Flextronics made AXi series is also good.
EVGA of course have all those SuperNova PSUs which are made by Superflower (as are all the B3, G2, G3, P2 and T2 models), plus Seasonic-made ones like GS and PS models.

EVGA is a much better company than Corsair as far as customer service is …EVGA is a much better company than Corsair as far as customer service is concerned so if any problems they are much more likely to help you out. See this chart its an old chart but still relevant [Image] also EVGA rebrand PSUs from other companies typically the higher end stuff is made by companies like Super Flower which IMO make probably the best PSUs available (I have a SF 1200w plat in my system) ALWAYS check for a review on Jonny Guru before buy a PSU if there is no review do not buy that PSU as there are sometimes big differences in quality between PSU in the same model range depending on the wattage so for instance a 500w version might be bad but the 750W version of the same PSU could be fantastic. To surmise I would recommend buying EVGA or Super Flower PSU (but only as long as Jonny Guru has given it a good review for that model) (also super flower isnt as good as EVGA for RMA as I think you still need to post rma to china with SF)and as far as I remember the corsair RMA is based in the Netherlands and you have to pay the postage yourself, but this was a few years ago so may have changed but probably not.good luck hope this helps.



I've recently done an RMA with both EVGA and Corsair.
EVGA was a faulty PSU (G2 550w).
Corsair was a H110 with noisy pump but I was being fussy. The did a drop shipment from Scan.
Both provided free postage via UPS.
Both sent me out brand new replacement units. Although EVGA did sent out a higher spec G2 650w for whatever reason.
