GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7790 GV-R779OC-2GD 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: When it works, it works beautifully - incredible smooth graphics, very quiet.

Cons: It almost never worked with the drivers provided. AMD drivers caused incessant crashes. The only resolution was a daily uninstall / reinstall of drivers and hope that the card stayed on and operated properly.

The card operates very well, but AMD has destroyed ATI. Random website crashes (more than one tab open can crash this card/driver). Some days it would run at over 70fps in games, others (for no reason) it would cap out at 8 fps. Horrible. RMA'd back to newegg for general ATI/AMD incompetence.

Other Thoughts: Installed on i5 chipset 1155, 500W PSU, and Gigabyte mobo. Everything else ran perfectly - the card was just horrible to keep running at full clip.
