Pros: card died after a week
Cons: I sometimes leave my computer on. Woke up one day and my computer was off.
Turned it on and sparks flew from the card. Looking around the internet, many people have encountered the exact same issue. Going to RMA and hopefully they send me one without the VRM issue or whatever caused this
Other Thoughts: Never again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill BRONZE Series RBR1000-M 1000W Continuous@40°C, 80Plus Bronze Certified,Modular Cable Design,ATX12V v2.3/ EPS12V,SLI Ready,CrossFire Ready,Active PFC"Compatible with Core i7, i5" Power Supply
Pros: plenty of power on 12v rails
Nice to look at
Cables are firmly sheathed
Cons: Wish it was 100% modular? Thats about it, honestly, not enough to justify taking off an egg since I knew this when I bought it.
Other Thoughts: I really like Rosewill products. I have only used cases of theirs at first, but have a few different products of theirs, and all are still working great even years later. Ive always thought because of the price that there had to be a catch, and maybe im one of the lucky ones, but its solid enough to consider a decent brand name.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good card, price is somewhat reasonable, though you can find this card elsewhere without the price jacked up this high.
Most of the pros just come from it being a 280x period. Its a fast card that will allow great gaming.
Cons: Sapphire BIOS in this card has temperature throttling way too early. Luckily I am a software engineer and know how to work around such things.
If you're looking to mine with this thing, be prepared to work for anything above 700 KHs. Once you get the bios right and settings right, it can pull 730+ though.
Other Thoughts: I was able to work around the issues. I use it for gaming and for other purposes (see cons).READ FULL REVIEW
