Pros: Shorter than the Sapphire 5850 CODMW2 edition that this replaced (2009). Has four times the memory. It also handles my three screens somewhat well (see cons). For the price, it is handling what I throw at it.
Come on AMD - why, why, why is this thing underclocked so badly that the screen flickers when using more than one monitor (eyefinity)? 300 MHz is too slow for eyefinity, or even two monitors. This can be proven when I started F@H. As soon as the GPU clock ramps up, the flickering stops.
This is even occurring while using the "Crimson" driver.
No fault of Sapphire. Deducted an egg due to AMD.
Will look at ways to keep the GPU clock from running under 400 MHz may help.
Other Thoughts: Great video card, overall, but the underclocked GPU issue with eyefinity needs to be seriously addressed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small, compact, comes with eSATA cable, has dual USB in case it needs more juice.
Cons: Does not seem to have enough cushion inside in case of small drops.
Other Thoughts: Works great with the same drive since receiving this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Socket 1150, PCIe 3.0, Can handle 32GB DDR3, Has m.2, enough SATA3 ports, it is black, no funky colors on ports/slots/adapters, No useless (Killer) NIC, no more PATA on motherboard
Cons: It did not come with a kitchen sink.
Other Thoughts: Awesome upgrade from my venerable GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R LGA 775 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128050). Will relegate this to a home server/NAS some time later. ]
