XFX HD-587A-ZNF9 Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Amazingly fast
-Dx 11 Support
-Runs everything I've thrown at it at max settings without a hiccup.
-Can handle up to three displays
-Isn't loud/doesn't run hot
-Looks really cool :)
-Not very power hungry (despite popular belief)
-Very high quality heatsink design
-HDMI output
-XFX's warranty is one of the best in the business, and (though I've never dealt with them directly), I hear their customer service is tops.

Cons: -One of the three displays you use (if you use three) must be native displayport. This is only a con because displayport monitors can be a little pricey.

Other Thoughts: Just to give fair warning, this is a very large card (only trumped in size by dual-gpu cards), but I didn't want to put it in the "cons" because it fits in my case. (Almost touches the hard drive racks though; I'm using an NZXT Tempest). In sum, this thing is an absolute beast. It trumps the 4870 x2 in performance, and even betters my crossfired 4890s.

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ965FBGMBOX Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Super Fast
-Absolutely destroys the i7 in terms of pricing, but stays on a pretty level playing field.
-The stock cooler that came with this one is much beefier than the one that came with my Athlon II
-Improved my boot time

Cons: -None.

Other Thoughts: This runs hotter than most (but that's to be expected), so an aftermarket cooler is recommended (at least by me). Also, it seems like a fairly large (and definitely noticeable) jump from my Athlon II X4 630. In sum, I highly recommend this to anybody who's looking for the absolute best balance between performance and price.

VisionTek 900296 Killer Xeno Pro Gaming Network Card 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Seemed like a good idea.

Cons: Despite the fact that this is an awesome idea, it didn't work out, because they fail to mention that it isn't compatible with some motherboards. After some extensive research (after making worthless attempts at dealing with non-existent customer support), I found that my motherboard is not compatible with this card. It would be very useful for them to at least include a link to a site with incompatible motherboards.

Other Thoughts: I'll never buy another visiontek product again due to the lack of customer support.
