Pros: I put it in a PC about 9 years old and I've ran all the games I have on ultra high or high setting, Most of my game are unreal 3 engine games, except payday 2 I got that free with this card. Highest setting on it as well, vsync'ed at 75Hz. Not a hitch not a shutter what so ever. I was pretty amazed it isn't pushing this card to max as my mobo is just 2.0 x16 my cpu is old Athlon x2 6400+ - 64Bit That says alot, this card in lowest of low spec maxing games you know you got a good card! I only seen slight improvements in guild wars 2 but that game is more needy on the cpu than gpu any MMO will be. Runs very cool under very high loads. This card is worth more than the price tag I recommend you get it if you need a cheap upgrade Got mine on mothers day weekend price tag was only $149 so I got luckier than some will.
Cons: It can get loud if the fan hits 100% the fans are hitting about 6000 RPMs @ 100% But to me that is not something I worry about my a/c is louder and in the same room adjacent to me You wont hear that card if you use headphones.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a 4670HD I knew if my mobo and CPU wouldn't bottle neck me to much it would do well, just not this well. I was very very surprised at the frames per second increase I got in all my games. Most games before i was running at lowest possible setting and resolutions which was 1024x768 @ 75Hz barely grabbing 40 FPS Now they are at max settings resolution of 1280x1024@75Hz (which is high as my LCD goes) capping at 60-75 FPS it probably can go higher but I'm vsync'ed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: inland 07242 Black 6 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Optical 2000 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Smooth mouse good precision. Some wild features on it normal mouse feature then it has a media mode that can be activated by holding the DPI switch for 5 secs (media mode is indicated by a blue LED under the mouse wheel.) pretty handy if you don't have a keyboard with media controls. Has a FPS feature that increases the USB report rate from 500Hx to 1000Hz. Seems much smoother at default (500Hz) Nice overall weight not to heavy not to light just right. 4x DPI settings 800/1200/1600/2000 Sensitive mouse clicks but smooth at the same time mouse wheel very smooth good notches to it. The 2x click button works as intended It's well worth $13 I'm comparing to the gigabyte M6800 & to be honest so far it blows that thing away. As for lifetime I don't know yet had the gigabyte M6800 a year and it still hasn't shorted out yet.
Cons: Not many maybe position of the 2x click button. I feel the 2x click button hard to reach should have lengthened the mouse by 1/2 an inch put the 2x click button lil more near top edge closer to where one's finger tip would be. Also there is no light indication of what dpi setting you are currently in you just gotta remember 4 settings and the feel of each setting. Also I feel the media LED needs to be more visible say maybe in the case of the mouse rather than hidden under the mouse wheel. Because from an anle looking down u can't see the Media mode blue light at all.
Other Thoughts: my hands aren't all that large but mouse tad smaller than the Gigabyte M6800 was. It's not a problem or a con really it still has a good feel to it I'd give this mouse 5 if I knew the life time of it. if it can make 1 year without forming a short I'd definetly give it a 5.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE Gila GM-M6800 Noble Black 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1600 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: Comfortable 4 & 5 mouse buttons are easy to press low price to quality ratio is better than good.
Very fast and precise.
Cord has plenty length and seems durable haven't had it long enough to see just how durable tho.
Lots of customizable options for mouse 3 4 & 5 buttons using software from Gigabyte website.
Cons: I think mouse wheel button is a little to stiff compared to what I was used to.
I use reload here in my games could pose a problem until I get used to the stiffness.
Must download the drivers+programmable buttons software from Gigabyte website.
Need more options on customizing mouse 4 & 5 buttons like keystrokes would have been nice.
Other Thoughts: 4/5 cause I lost alot, cause of lack of customization for mouse 4 & 5 buttons compared to the intelpoint software for my old microsoft optical. Also you might want this link for the driver software+drivers.
