XFX Radeon R9 390 DirectX 12 R9-390P-8256 8GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Double Dissipation XXX OC Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought mine at Best Buy since they had it for about the same Newegg sale price. This thing is WELL worth the price and obliterates the competition around the same price point! I was going to get an Nvidia Geforce 970 and the only reason I didnt was becuase of my mixed resolution 3 monitor setup. 1920x1080 - 2560x1080 - 1920x1080. Features and drivers won me over for this upgrade cycle and it is not something ATI is known for but they are vastly improved the last couple of years. Performance is awesome on ALL games, obviously i wont be playing GTA V or Fallout 4 Ultra with MSAA on one 390 but who says i cant add another if i want too :))

Cons: Relatively low clock and Vram speeds compared to other 390s, BUT this thing OCs easily and quite a lot with afterburner.

Other Thoughts: I have not used an XFX card since i had a XFX Geforce many years ago. I never associated them with Radeon but they have done well with this card and I will consider them in the future along with my other favorites of ASUS, Powercolor and Sapphire.

SAMSUNG 32GB microSDHC Flash Card With USB 2.0 Reader Model MB-MP32DB/AM

Pros: Comes with a USB reader attachment!

Cons: There is a newer version available!

Other Thoughts: Slid this baby right in my Nokia Lumia phone with no lube, booted right up!!


G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10D-16GSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: G Skill always delivers they have became my top RAM brand in the last 5 years!
Comes with a sticker! :P

Cons: Cant wait to upgrade to DDR4 G Skill in the future ^

Other Thoughts: Previously, I had a 16GB Kit of G Skill ARES 1866 and some random 4GB kit of Patriot Viper 2000. Combined at 20GB, with lots of timings tested the best I could get this setup to run was 1950 - 1990Mhz @ 11-11-11 (1.66V).

I received my Sniper series kit and paired it with the slightly older ARES 1866 kit, tweaked around on my BIOS settings and FSB and got combined 32GB RAM to 2133MHz ( or very close ) and AMD 8350FX to around 4.62 GHZ. Booted right up! did some stress tests and gaming and been running perfect! G Skill kits tend to pair well together !

32GB total 2133Mhz - 12-12-12 @ 1.68V 2T
8350 FX on Crosshair V Formula

Have heard of people achieving higher speeds but I don't wanna push this old girl any harder, she just needs to last me until I can afford an Intel DDR4 rig!
