SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290 DirectX 12 100362-3L 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Tri-X OC Version (UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card provides excellent performance in DX11 and future-proof DX12 performance in 1080p. If you're looking for a crossroads of performance and value, this or the 390 will be worth considering!

Cons: 4GB RAM means an upgrade will be necessary when I make the jump to 4K monitors.

Other Thoughts: If you don't really see a need to render 4x as many pixels yet, or want something just good enough for a decent VR experience in HD, this card will perform.

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290 DirectX 12 100362-3L 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Tri-X OC Version (UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned 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

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.
