SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290 100362-3L 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Tri-X OC Version (UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: First off, this card is on par with the best of the single-gpu cards available right now. The price was right, at $240 after rebates I definitely got my money's worth. Runs much cooler than a stock R9 290, and is very quiet on idle.

Cons: Like any GPU, the fans spin up while the card is rendering gorgeous 3D goodness for you. While it is audible, it's not as loud as any of the stock fan blower AMD options I've owned recently.

Other Thoughts: This card in particular needs to dissipate over 200W (closer to 300W) of heat. Make sure you have adequate ventilation to keep from cooking this card or the rest of your computer slowly, and avoid thermal throttling on both your cpu and gpu.

SYBA SY-PEX40016 PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) RAID Controller Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Confusing, but rock solid RAID 5 card. 02/24/2011

This review is from: SYBA SY-PEX40016 PCI Express SATA II (3.0Gb/s) RAID Controller Card

Pros: Hardware RAID 5 on a budget.

Cons: Rather confusing to configure.

Needed to download jmicron controller drivers for Windows 7 install.

Other Thoughts: Bought this card a while back, took a chance and ignored the bad reviews, paying attention to the "success stories" Followed their example and now I've got a 6tb raid 5 array running solid for 2.5 months straight. A good purchase.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3850 100226L 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent performance, put 2 or 3 fo them in crossfire and you will be able to drive games like eve online, forged alliance, world in conflict and call of duty world at war with extremely high performance.

Plus, theyre 50 bucks now, you can get 4 of them for the same price as one 4850 :D

Cons: they're the previous gen, but they have the same architecture as the newer 48xx series cards.

Other Thoughts: This is an incredible deal. I'm definitely considering buying one of these to finally get that quad crossfire setup ive always dreamed of :D
