Pros: Solid, strong performance in all the games I play. Max settings at 1900X1080. I think this may be one of the best looking cards I've ever owned...its a shame to see so little of it inside a pc case! With the improvements being made in subsequent driver releases, this card nips at the heels of a GTX 670 at almost $100 less!
This card is whisper quiet at stock settings.
Cons: If you're looking to seriously overclock, I don't think this is your card. I was able to apply a modest OC to 950MHz/1350MHz before I wasn't entirely comfortable with temps and noise. If you want to really push an OC you might consider the Gigabyte Windforce cooler or the Asus DCu. As with all OC's, your mileage will vary.
Other Thoughts: XFX now has, hands down, the BEST warranty in the graphics card industry. Now that EVGA has watered down their warranty to point of...umm...just about the same as everyone else, XFX is the last to still offer a true, lifetime warranty. Just be aware, not all models qualify for it.
I've never had any problems with XFX graphics cards, but then again, I've never had one fail. This is my fourth.
This review is from: Genius GX Gaming SW-G2.1 1250 38 Watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System
Pros: Given the pricepoint, these are awesome speakers! True, they're not going to wow and audiophile but that's not what they're designed to do. They have a nice look and the separate power/control module served my layout perfectly.
Cons: I'd consider the base to be a little "mushy" but in speakers less than $100 all bass will be a little mushy.
Other Thoughts: These speakers will perform on par with Creative or Logitech models costing almost twice as much. If in doubt, just buy them!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great card. Clocked a bit higher than default 7870's with a fairly compact pcb and shroud. Good looks...except for the trim sticker on the front...that was a bit cheesy. Can handle max setting at 1900X1080 for all the games I play. Incredible deal when purchased on sale...with a game...with a rebate...with free shipping. Thanks Newegg.
This may be the best upper-midrange graphics solution for someone with limited space.
Cons: The dragons are harder to kill in Skyrim now but still only drop one soul.
Other Thoughts: I try to stay open to both AMD and nVidia cards each generation. This time around AMD seems to outperform at virually every price point making the Team Green cards seem almost irrelevant. Competition in the component industry is the best thing for us enthusiasts!READ FULL REVIEW
