Pros: Extremely fast, quiet (thus far), but it is hot.
Cons: Drivers!!! Come on AMD. When you release a card, have non-beta drivers to go along with it. That said, I have only hit a few minor snags along the way.
Other Thoughts: The size of the card was exactly the same as the Radeon 6970 that it replaced. I thought it may been a few mm smaller, but could have been mistaken. I've run synthetic benchmarks at 3960x1200 and seen fantastic results and I've run BF3 maxed out (which I could do before with the 6970). Want to get my hands on Metro Last Light to really push this thing, but I believe from what I've seen this card should be able to handle it. Seriously thinking of getting another one to run in x-fire! :)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this for use in a HTPC build and chose it due to low power consumption and was genuinely interested in how the integrated graphics perform. I have no intentions of running the latest games, I have a monster system as well as an Alienware M17x R4 for the most demanding games.
The Windows Experience Index gave it a score of 6.7!
This thing will emulate PS2 flawlessly! I can run everything on the eumlator I've tried.
I also bought a HD Homerun Prime to get my full range of cable channels on it, and I have a 3TB drive as the PVR drive.
If you are looking to do something like this build - this is your PC!
Cons: None really. I probably wouldn't buy this particular CPU for my main rig but for HTPC or "general everyday use" PCs, it can't be beat for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked the first time I plugged everything in. I love this board.
Cons: I am knocking it an egg because it's proving to be difficult to use a 3TB drive as a data drive. Got an idea so may have to amend this review.READ FULL REVIEW
