Pros: Built Well, and Solid. -the ram has heat sinks as well.
Installation to driver update was simple went along without a hitch.
Runs all the games i play on Ultra, or a hybrid of High/Ultra with at least 45 FPS average.(dont usually go above 4x AA)
Its pretty small for newer cards, and not that large when upgrading from older cards. (In a Rosewill Challenger case)
Runs cool and quiet all the time - i set the fan my on my own with Afterburner to 80% at 62C, i dont think it ever gets past 60C.
It's fans drone with the rest of the case, but not louder
Cons: None that i can think of, maybe that it doesnt come with an SLI bridge, but i'll worry about that later anyway.
Other Thoughts: I got this card as an upgrade from an Asus HD5830, which was a solid card too.
At first i ordered a Sapphire HD6970 which didnt seem to give me the frames i wanted or run as well as i thought it should. This might have been a compatibility problem with the card or my system but i had to RMA it to newegg, which was as painless as ever.
They did however keep a good chunk of money for restocking or whatever, which is cool, but it decreased my card budget a bit.
After reading many days worth of reviews and testing, i settled on this card, figuring it would be solid. I was right.
It's not the newest most amazing chipset, but it's rock solid and you will get playable frames from any game out today.
My common games are Skyrim, Battlefield3, Star Wars: TOR, RAGE, and a few older games.
They all run nice, on the newest drivers. I've yet to have any crashes or crazy problems.
Also, I run the card at the speeds it came with.
I've seen it OC'ed quite a bit, but I dont think i'll n
Pros: Was almost plug n play, had to scan disk for drivers.
The antenna screw deals on the card itself fit my desktop antenna.
Cons: none that i can think of?
Other Thoughts: Cute little card, but puts in it's share of work.
Only had a PCIe x4 to put it in. (Stupid ever growing video cards)
But it works just fine in there.
This review is from: Fellowes 5933901 Microban-Black Mouse Pad
Pros: It doesnt seem to slide around on my desk, the bottom seems pretty grippy to me.
It doesnt have MUCH drag, but there is some, but that's how i like it.
It's black so it wont look AS grimy in a year.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: It's a little small, like a typical mousepad, which is all i currently have room for.
I'm pretty happy with it, it doesnt slide, and i play BF3 pretty hectically on it.
I bought this pad more for the size than anything else, and it kinda surprised me with how much i like it.
