Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold - 800W Power Supply with 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi-Modular Cables
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Easy to install and modular. Pin-outs are labelled and the specs are great.

Cons: After just one year of use the power supply finally died. Upon power up it made a very loud popping noise and released the smoke of doom.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully CoolerMaster will replace it as it is still under the 2 year warranty.

SAPPHIRERadeon HD 7850 OC 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card  ( 11200-01-20G )
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy to install physically install
Keeps cool
Slight improvement over HD 5770

Cons: Drivers were almost impossible to install in XP 32-bit
Had to uninstall all .net framework and all ATI drivers excluding any motherboard drivers and restart. Ran the Radeon HD 7850 XP 32-bit installer and the Catalyst programs would not fun. I had to physically point the driver install using "Have Disc" to the actual .inf file in the driver folder. It installed what looks like a different driver for a Firestream 9170. The card works now, but I am not confident that the drivers are optimized and the Catalysts items are still not functional.

Other Thoughts: I think for a Windows 7 machine this card will be much easier to install. For a Windows XP machine I would recommend following my steps above or going with nVidia. It honestly has taken me over 10+hours to get it running.
