PowerColor Radeon HD 7790 AX7790 1GBD5-DH/OC 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs At $100 (with 3 games) -- This was a Steal! 02/06/2014

This review is from: PowerColor Radeon HD 7790 AX7790 1GBD5-DH/OC 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Great value. Nice to get the GCN 1.1 newer tech and hopefully the trueaudio will be enabled by firmware at some point. Mantle may eventually provide some value.

Tomb Raider was better than I expected and Bioshock Infinite looks promising.

Cons: Will be a little bummed if TrueAudio support s not added. Didn't care for FC3: Blood Dragon.

Other Thoughts: Upgrading from a 3850 (256MB) // This is a huge performance upgrade. I got a 1080p monitor when my old 1280x1024 went out and the (already old) Radeon 3850 just couldn't handle the few modern games I play (Alan Wake was the kicker). It served me well for 5 years.

This handled the task with no issues whatsoever, and should be a carryover into a new system when I finally get a new board.

Opteka SB-300 Universal Small Studio Soft Box Flash Diffuser for External Flash Units
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Really reasonably priced ($4, shipped)
Looks like it'll diffuse well

Cons: No attachment strap
Included velcro for attaching seems to require superglue for attaching to flash

Other Thoughts: assuming this works well enough, i'm still satisfied with this purchase even if I have to use some superglue.

AGPtek Wireless Controller PC Windows Gaming Receiver for Microsoft Xbox 360 - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Allows me to use an xBox wireless remote with my PC. Supposedly, lets you connect 4 at once.

Cons: Driver issues. Bundled drivers don't work (reliably).

Other Thoughts: Downloading the MS drivers, installing them, then adding hardware > input devices > xbox wireless seems to fix the problem. (not exact -- you'll find it if you search)
