GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5 AM3 AMD 790FX 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Running smooth after almost a year. Plenty of connections for well, everything. First mother board I've installed.

Cons: sata ports are a tid bit cramped.

HIS Radeon HD 6850 DirectX 11 H685F1GD 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good speed. 60fps with all wow setting maxed.

Cons: Only one of my old VGA monitors can connect to the card. Now this is only a con cause i failed to read that there is 1 DVI port on this gen *6850/6870* of card that will support the old analog signal.

Other Thoughts: My lack of display knowledge at the time cost me $35 dollars 15% return fee plus shipping. So if you have 2 VGA monitors with DVI adapters only one will work heh. Unfortunately I couldn't do a straight credit toward a 6870 so in a moment of nerd rage I bought the 6870 through another site.
But I still love newegg it was just a spendy lesson to learn.
Oh btw, the 6870 cards are the same set up lol.

EVGA GeForce 9500 GT DirectX 10 01G-P3-N959-TR 1GB 128-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good midrange card. Not blazing fast gaming speed but alright for the price.

Cons: Not much faster than my 7900gtx I upgraded from as far as gaming goes. But was a decent price for a small upgrade.

Other Thoughts: I held back getting something better due to my older mobo at the time.
