XFX Double D Radeon HD 7970 DirectX 11 FX-797A-TDFC 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs things nicely at high resolution.

Cons: After a few months of use the fans are making a horribly loud buzzing noise. I've tested by removing the card from my system and the noise goes away. Add it back in and the noise is back.

For the price tag I'd find something different. I'm regretting my purchase of this.

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2CCA 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good, fast and works great..when it works.

Cons: After about 10 months of intermittent use the system failed to boot. Windows was unable to repair and during an attempt to install an OS fresh the drive disappeared completely from BIOS.

ASUS Laptop G Series G73JH-X1 Intel Core i7 720QM (1.60 GHz) 8 GB Memory 500 GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 17.3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it works it delivers what I expected.

Cons: Numerous issues, just google "G73J known issues". I've personally experienced the "gsod" issue which took quite a bit of tweaking to get it down to a 'seldom happens' state. Also experiencing horrible static at random. Tried numerous 'fixes' on the forums with no success. It now occurs so often I've broken down to try an RMA. As everyone else here can testify, their RMA / Service in general is awful. Just look Asus up with BBB if you need further proof.

1st level techs provide no actual tech support, you have to send it in to get anything done. Not looking forward to a process that has a good chance of leaving my notebook in worse shape than I'm sending it out in.

Other Thoughts: Will never buy another Asus again, unless they rebuild their support process from the ground up.
