XFX HD-585X-ZAFC Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Amazing card. Even in mid-2011 it's still able to run any game thrown at it on high/ultra high.

Cons: I've had to RMA this card 3 times now (about to RMA it a 4th time) because I'm getting the grey screen of death (GSOD formally known as the BSOD), lines, flickering and system crashes/rebooting when attempting to play any games, and eventually will completely die on you.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned, this card suffers from the GSOD, and after some Googling, it seems to be a known issue with the 5xxx series. I'm sure many never encounter the problem, and I call them lucky. But for me and everyone else who have been suffering from this, it's irritating to the max.

I do love this card though, because when it works, it works GREAT! But having to RMA almost 4 cards now in a years time, just isn't worth it to me anymore. :[
And no, it's not a PSU problem as I have a 750w Antec and proper cooling in my case.

ASUS VH202T-P Glossy black 20
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Colors are crisp and clear. One of the better monitors I've purchased in recent years. Glossy frame finish is also nice, giving the monitor a more richer look to it. DVI is also a nice option to have, seeing as some "cheaper" monitors tend to lack that sometimes. Good for gaming! Built-in speakers are a plus too, for those who don't have standard speakers available to them, or lack the space required for some.

Cons: No swivel stand, and can't adjust the height either. But for me personally, that's not a big deal. Might be for others, though.

Other Thoughts: For the price ($90 after black friday rebates), it's one of the best buys I could get for a monitor of this size. No regrets!
