NVIDIA Pick 1 of 3 GAMES: Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4 and The Crew (Up to $59.99 Retail Value)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Supposed to be a Good game
Came with the GTX 980 I bought

Cons: Everything. I cant play it because UPlay wont give me access.

Game is on steam already, but youtube requires you play on Uplay, so you dont get to enjoy steam like you do for your other games.

Then they tell me I can not play until 12/31/2014 then tell me it was a bug and I can play at release. Well, that was a lie. I cant play. Game wont unlock.

Other Thoughts: Avoid getting any hardware just for the game. UPlay is a horrible company with very poor customer service.

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Looks great

Cons: everything. Bought this and an FX8350 and both are dead on arrival. Very unhappy.

XFX Double D FX-787A-CDBC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Black Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice Looking Card, comes with 2 free games & purs like a content kitten. Very Quiet

Cons: Short Lived, Green Snow, Not even a full 2 weeks and the card is dying.

So, I bought this card with a psu bundle, and all was fine, for the better part of the past 2 weeks

My system build is

Acer 23" Widescreen Flat Panel LED HD Monitor
OS Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit)
CPU AMD FX-6300 3.5 Ghz 6 Core CPU
GPU XFX 7870 Radeon Double D 2gb
PSU XFX Pro 750Watt
8GB DD3 Ram
1TB Sata Hard Drive

Today, I power up my pc, and its snowing green! I try another monitor, reformat 2x, and no good. Green snow. Id say avoid this card at ALL COSTS. XFX says I need to pay to ship it to them, and then in 3 to 6 weeks, they will return it, if they can fix it. REALLY?

Confirming I have proper air flow, trying to detect if its a driver issue, and failing to fix after 2 re installs. even XFX Support said the card is Faulty.

What is worse? I cant get a refund cause I played the games, which they will subtract from the return price, so dont expect to return this card in favor of a full refund. Not gonna happen. So very sad, I really was enjoying this card.

Other Thoughts: Card was delivered on time, looked sexy, ran like a purring kitten, then deciuded to make green snow=/
