ASUS P8Z77-V LX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Overall, does what it says. Makes it pretty simple to overclock. Nice spacing for upgrades. Nice features for the price. Control and most of the software/drivers is pretty good. Impressed with fan control.

Cons: A far stretch to say this mobo is ready for windows 8 x64, Too many issues to list. Unforgiving on power outages. Useless software for windows 8. Get ready to re-download all drivers if running windows 8, and even then, doesn't seem very solid. You can run rapid start, or rapid storage, not both? Rapidly annoying. No auto extreme Overclocking? Kinda a cheap shot when claiming you get the SAME software of the higher end boards.

Other Thoughts: For the most part, it's pretty stable, and does have some really nice features. The price is reasonable, but feel it should be a little cheaper esp. when claiming windows 8 compatible.

HIS IceQ H787Q2G2M Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to overclock. Pretty silent unless really heating. All software works flawless, even 3rd party. I've never had a game not run with it so far. For the price, it's really a great card.

Cons: You could cook a egg on it when really testing how much power it has, Esp. when you overclock it. Hits 90c when running most benchmarks, even at stock. Not normal type of heating you would expect. Putting the fan on auto is a bad ideal if your really pushing it. You get worried about either burning up the fan or melting the card. Serious thought must be made about putting in a VGA cooler. When first installed without updates, had problems with rare random crashes when running youtube. Seemed to be fixed after installing new drivers.

Other Thoughts: Overall, really good budget card. But if your a serious gamer, I don't think its worth buying a cooler for, or worth trying to crossfire. It's a good budget card, and it really does try to flex a little. But don't expect anything over 60-70 fps on your high end games. Trying to use PhysX with this card will flatline it ( 7 to 8 fps) But that's prob. expected.
