Pros: Highspeed card with a small profile
PCI-E 3.0 (as usual)
Cons: Driver issues occasionally
Other Thoughts: I run two 7970s in my rig and I bought this for my wife so that she could play games like Kingdom of Amalur maxed. It does it very well and everything flows nicely but the drivers could be better. This is Radeon's only faulting point really. Both hers and my cards tend to lock up the display when put to sleep and brought back. The easy remedy is to turn off the sleep and inactive monitor but I shouldn't have to do this. I thought it was a windows problem at first but seeing it happened when I was on Windows 7 and moved to 8 that seems less likely. Her machine is also on 8 and has the same issues. Overall, great card for the money!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: High speed
Non-HyperThreaded 4 core setup
Cons: Not much room for overclocking but I didn't buy it for that
Low end turbo
Other Thoughts: I bought this for a rig that I built my wife. She needed something that could play games and browse the web. Along with a 7770 and a Vertex 4 SSD this setup works well with 8GB of RAM. She isn't a hardcore gamer and just wanted maxed out graphics on some games like Kingdom of Amalur with no issue. This setup replaced her gaming laptop with a 460M so anything was better than that. Good processor for basic gaming.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock A785GM-LE AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: 6 SATA 3
Many options in BIOS for OCing, customizing via profile, etc.
Great Color Coding!
Cons: None that I can see so far, booted with no issues
Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a mobo that shorted on an old Gateway I have. I wanted to use the gateway as a server for a few things and this was the only choice I really had other than the factory one that was a refurb. This fit easily, connected even better, and overall works flawlessly. My HDD doesn't work but that isn't the Mobo that has to deal with the old PSU blowing out half my system. So kudos!READ FULL REVIEW
