This review is from: XTRAC PADS Ripper Mouse Pad
Pros: - Size
Cons: - Edges showing slight wear after ~1 month
Other Thoughts: Very nice mouse pad. No regrets at all. The long width and medium height allows both vertical and horizontal positioning (use mine vertically as I have smaller desk).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Clear screen
- Great second monitor
- Decent size vs. price
Cons: - As others have pointed out, stand is kind of wobbly.
- Has a moderately "cheap build" quality
Pros: Worth every penny. With this card and 3.3 cpu/8g ram, runs Crysis1 on all very high settings with ~27+ frames/sec.
Runs every game so far with modern shader tech at high to very high, which was my issue and reason for buying a new card.
Overall a very good buy for the price.
Cons: Optimization issues with some games, specifically Rift. Drivers are up-to-date and still have issues. Doesn't black screen or anything, but it's a con for me: I play Rift and Crysis 1 right now.
Be careful if you have a compact motherboard + tower, it will be an issue for you.
The card fits flat against your motherboard due to the fan case. If you have a SATA/HDD cable that happens to line up with your PCI 2.0 slot, you WILL have to get a new motherboard or, if you are lucky, move the SATA slots around if you have multiple. I was not so fortunate, I had a slimmed down ASUS Mobo and had to get a new one because the only available SATA slots were lined with the PCI 2.0, and inserting the GPU wouldn't fit without stressing the SATA cables.
Space is the ultimate con. Large card, again.
Other Thoughts: I am very happy with my purchase, I got a new Mobo in the process which didn't have anything to do with Newegg or misinformation, it was just a small change I had to make and now know to further investigate spacial issues/positioning for hardware in future buys.READ FULL REVIEW
