Creative Sound Blaster Z 70SB150200000 5.1 Channels 24-bit PCI Express (x1, x4 or x16) Interface Sound Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: None that I have found so far.

Cons: The card added a terrible buzzing/whistle to the sound chain.

Other Thoughts: New drivers, grounding triple checked... ASUS OnBoard sound is clean. Added card, crud sound. Booooo

Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Amigo II USB Interface Sound Card & Headset Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Plug and play. No software needed, no conflicts.

Cons: Didn't clean up the sound chain I was hoping for; on-board sound.

XFX Double D FX-795A-TDKC Radeon HD 7950 Black Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card - Retail
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Strong card handles all my online gaming with better than average settings. My board is only a PCIe 2.0 so I can imagine it running even better on a PCIe 3.0 board.

Cons: The manufacturer XFX is not a company of their word in my last two experiences with the Hong Kong company. The Personal Activation Code (bonus goodies) that came with the card was never honored in both instances. The hoops one must jump through to get any kind of support when addressing my issue months later is not worth the frustration; other manufactures are out there for the HD 7950.

Other Thoughts: The fans run quiet and will speed up slightly when the card is in Overdrive. I like to go into Catalyst Control Panel and run the fans manually at 70% when I game. It keeps the card at 40-42 C but, does make a considerable amount of "whine" from the dual fans. I'm OK with that when gaming.
