GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7770 DirectX 11 GV-R777D5-1GD 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent card, much better than my old one. Runs SWTOR at all high settings with a good frame rate.

Cons: Kept locking up the system on me when my brand new build would go to sleep. The screen would go dark and the computer would just freeze (no disk activity. num lock or caps lock not responding - the only way I could tell that the machine was really locked up)

Other Thoughts: I went to Gigayte's web site to look to see if their drivers were different or something and discovered a BIOS update for it. I had never heard of updating the BIOS for a video card but I gave it a shot. System goes to sleep and wakes up just fine after upgrading it.

Crucial M4 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast and quiet, like any SSD. This particular model came with a tray to adapt it to the 3.5" drive slots in my tower.

Cons: One has to update the firmware on the drive to get all the speed performance out of it.

Other Thoughts: At first the Windows scoring system for this drive ranked it at only a 6.1, not very much faster than my old SATA raid 0 setup. I upgraded the firmware and it jumped to 7.9. That is the only reason it does not get 5 stars.
