GIGABYTE GV-R795WF3-3GD Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent GPU that has handled everything I've thrown at it thus far in regards to gaming, or video playback and/or editing. Stays very cool under pressure as well, and the heat vent comes out the REAR of the card, not internally like someone had mentioned in a previous comment. The card takes up 2 of the slots in the rear because of it's heat venting...

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Ordered quite a few parts together.. Will be placing this "other thoughts" in ALL of my reviews of the parts I placed...
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core
NZXT LEXA S LEXS Case
Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-750 750W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V
GIGABYTE GV-R795WF3-3GD Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5
ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
---------------------
All parts came as intended, and seemed to work well together. Only problem I've had, has been 2 random crashes while watching YouTube videos. Screen goes black, sound continues for a few seconds, then cuts out and PC freezes. As it's only been twice, and while watching YouTube videos, but not while playing any games, I'm thinking it may be freak accident. Will redo review should I find out anything more..
---------------
Other then the YouTube freezes I listed above, I can't seem to replicate the blackscreen/freeze issue that's only happened twice in the first month of ownership.
--------------
Final Thoughts - Buy this card if you want to get the most for your money, and you aren't concerned with staying with another brand.

ASRock 990FX Extreme4 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 8 x SATA 6Gb/s (SATA3_8 connector is shared with eSATA3 port) USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent BIOS for standard users, and good for tweaker/OverClockers.. I wouldn't take anything away from this board, as it does what it's supposed to...

Cons: Only issue I had, was that I had to press the rear CLEAR CMOS button twice to initially get the PC to boot. I'd read thru the comments section, and found another user had stated that so when the time came that I put together my new system, I tried that and it posted just fine.

Other Thoughts: Ordered quite a few parts together.. Will be placing this "other thoughts" in ALL of my reviews of the parts I placed...

---------------
Have had no troubles with the board as far as I can tell, and as stated in the GPU review I did, the blackscreen/freeze issue that has only happened during YouTube videos could simply be a fluke. Regardless, I cannot say anything bad about this product or it's performance.
--------------
Final Thoughts - Definite Buy for AMD CPUs that are AM3+ like the FX-8320 that I purchased...

GIGABYTE GV-R795WF3-3GD Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Unbelievable ability to process current generation games. Takes what I throw at it, and asks for more..
3 Fan design underneath appears to be keeping card below 60C at max settings on GW2, Neverwinter, Smite, and various other games

Cons: Board does seem a bit flimsy, but turned case on it's side to place in card when installing..
Not too sure this is a CON yet, because I've not been able to duplicate issue, but video has gone blackscreen twice while watching simple YouTube videos while sound still plays thru optical out on MoBo for 2-3 sec before PC freezes. Only happened twice, randomly, and cannot see card being issue but wanted to state just in case..

Other Thoughts: Ordered quite a few parts together.. Will be placing this "other thoughts" in ALL of my reviews of the parts I placed...

Final Thoughts - Definitely Buy this card if you're not dead set on nVidia cards. I will say this compares to the equivalent from the other brand, and beats it because it's price point is lower..
