MSI R7 260X 2GD5 OC Radeon R7 260X 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it works, it works well

Cons: I bought the R7 260, and a few weeks later, the R7 260x for a different computer. Both crash on a fairly frequent basis. Usually when the computer is asleep for awhile, it try to log back in and find a black screen, which requires a reboot. I was just working on a project, and the screen went black, forcing a reboot.

I've tried a variety of drivers, including the newest AMD 14.4. The most stable driver so far is the default driver in Win 8.

If you do a Google search on these cards, you will discover this is a common problem.

FWIW, neither card is overclocked, nor are they used for gaming. Neither card is running hot. Both computers have an i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, with one running Win7 Pro, and the other Win 8.1 Update.

Other Thoughts: I would NOT recommend buying either an R7 260, nor the R7 260x

Unfortunately, I have exceeded the 30 day return period, so I'm stuck with these cards.

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This MB replaced a GigaByte Z77 MB that has always been problematic. It was easy to physically install and has a nice combination of PCI/PCIe slots. Win7 Pro booted up from the previous installation. BIOS settings were flexible, and enabled me to configure some options that were unavailable with the previous MB. The documentation is excellent. I think this is the fastest I've ever replaced the case side panel after a system upgrade!

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: I now have two AsRock Z77 motherboards (Extreme 4 and Pro 4). I'm super happy with both of them.
