SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X 100362VXSR Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support TRI-X OC (UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Design

Cons: Performance, drivers, stability.
This is card is in the higer end of Sapphire. The chips used for them are ''binned'' which means that they pick only the chips with top results after 80 hours of non-stop testing. I can't believe this chip passed the test, it is highly unstable, crashing every time I use windows...yes every single time. For a high end card, this is just disgusting to have such low quality. There is zero stability and you never know when the card will start to act up and crash everything it's just a time-bomb.

Other Thoughts: Would I have known that Sapphire could deliver such mediocre product, I would have stayed with nVidia which delivers every time. Like I said this product is marketed as a ''luxury'' GPU which means you should and have the right to expect a 100% working unit since they are tested for long hours in their facility before being sold. How can such a bad card gets approved is a mystery for me but it's the last time I buy Sapphire. I will only get fooled once.

MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Extreme OC High Performance Triple CFX/ SLI  Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sturdy build

Cons: Overall quality
Hardware recognition
Tech support (what a joke)

Other Thoughts: I bought this board 2 months ago, installing physically was a breez but software was a mess. MSI Command Center and Live (to update drivers) is aweful. I started having trouble with CPU fans, loosing all control and then when I tryed to join tech support it was just a mess. I wish I could return it. First time with MSI and 100% last time as well.

XFX R9-280X-TDFD Radeon R9 280X 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation Edition Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Silent
Good design

Cons: Huge

Other Thoughts: Based on its MSRP price of 329$, this card is excellent. Even if its a stock card, it runs BF4 without any problems @ 1080p, Ultra 4XMSAA between 70 and 80 fps which is exceptional for the price. Make sure you have the place in your case. Even with a full tower you may have trouble since the card is large, not just long. If you want that card I higly recommand waiting the price goes back to the 300s tho.
