Pros: A pleasure to operate, totally silent and great performance for a DDR3. I overclocked it also and get 7.1 in Windows experience but runs stable. This is my lowest score but it is the price to pay for SILENCE. I am not a gamer so no big deal, runs Photoshop and other graphic programs as well as video perfectly.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking for silence and good performance, this is the card to get!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade
Pros: Metro could become something , one day if and only if Microsoft tablets with Windows interface prevail. Except it won't happen...(see Cons). No real pros worth mentioning and it appears this will be another Win Vista at best. Skip and wait for better if it comes. Win 7 still Rocks over this.
Cons: Microsoft is way behind the times in mobile tablet applications, example, Win RT is a failure. Too late for this market for Microsoft. Apple and Android dominate the market and nothing beats the Apple mobile OS. Win 8 is nothing more than an awkward Win 7 hidden under a cute want to be Metro interface. I played with the Beta version for a while and did not convince me.
Other Thoughts: I have been a PC avid lover and hardware hobby builder for over 20 years. However, since the advent of the iPhone and iPad, I have been playing with Mac OS more and more due to its ease of use, efficiency and friendly character. my family of 4 each of us own iPhones and iPads and they all integrate and play exceptionally. with my kids Mac laptops and a mac Mini I also own. My own powerhouse computer that I built 2 months ago is a PC running Win 7 64 that is my preferred machine. Bottom line, Windows to me is a work environment (I am no gamer), Mac is my play environment. I have the best of both worlds and they even talk to each other on my Home network.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card is beautiful in my Lian Li silver case. The heat sink fins are gorgeous. It works perfectly and silently in my new built. I overclocked it a bit through AMD Catalistic software, just enough to get a 7.1 in windows experience. I am not a gamer so I am not worry about gaming performance. I can render video without a glitch.
Cons: Nothing I can think of, just what I was looking for. It could be cheaper but the heat sink is probably the reason why is somewhat expensive.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend if silence is a must. I hear nothing coming out of my case but a pleasant hiss from my CPU heat sink fan as my case has 120 fans that are very silent.READ FULL REVIEW
