NETGEAR GS305-100PAS 5 Port Gigabit Switch Metal

5 out of 5 eggs Solid product 05/21/2015

This review is from: NETGEAR GS305-100PAS 5 Port Gigabit Switch Metal

Pros: It just works! Plug stuff in and that's it, seems like a solid product that will never need to be replaced

Cons: None

SAPPHIRE 100362-3L Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Tri-X OC Version (UEFI) Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The witcher 3 plays at about 30fps with everything set on ultra (1080p) and Nvidia Hairworks set to Geralt only, drops to 14fps in some places and during cutscenes, this is also with Motion Blur off, bring down some settings to give a higher FPS but personally I was fine with 30fps

Cons: Can be used as a space heater (no joke)

SAPPHIRE 100362-3L Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Tri-X OC Version (UEFI) Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Handles most all games well, on dying light without the update the frame rates were horrible with this and even my 7970, after the update Dying Light plays at above 30fps with everything turned up (movie grain off) on High with Nvidia HBAO and Depth of Field, even with draw distance maxed out I'm getting over 30fps. Bring down draw distance to get 50fps +

AC Unity no troubles here with everything maxed (this is after the update)

Mortal Kombat palys great as well.

The Witcher 3 is yet to be tested and the reason I got this card, I will update this review once it releases.

Not as loud as people in reviews lead me to believe (almost didn't buy it for that reason and PSU requirements)

Cons: Very long card, this is longer than the 7970, the cooler protrudes about an inch off the back of the card, luckily it was able to fit in my cheap Thermaltake V2 case (mid-tower)

Power Hungry, I have a Ultra 750w PSU and so far it's handling it very well. There are a lot of sad people out there who didn't know their PSU couldn't support this card and it caused them to leave a lot of bad reviews. It almost kept me from buying this card but the price/performance can't be beat compared to Nvidia.

Lots of heat, like the 7970 this can be used a space heater (no joke). This card get to 95c (over 200 deg)!! (with stock fan settings)

Blows heat inside case possibly increasing the temps of other components.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great card, runs hot, but can hold it's own. Like most card just understand that this will heat up a room pretty quickly. In the summer this can be a problem, in the winter you can open a window and while using this card your room will still stay warm.
