PNY XLR8 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Upgrading a system drive to a SSD brings hugs improvements to boot up and all round system speed. This drive is no exception and is a great drive to have as a system drive. Excellent speed and transfer rates combined with a good amount of space.

Cons: Only wish it had a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter but other than that it's been perfect.

XFX Double D Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 FX-787A-CDFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought this card as a replacement/upgrade for an older HD4850. Phenomenal performance for the price of the card and runs cooler than the older 4850 ever did. Loving the ability to use 3 monitors to play games and have an excellent view of the battle around me.

Cons: N/A

PowerColor Radeon HD 3850 DirectX 10.1 AG3850 512MD3-P 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: First to start, this card is probably the fastest card you can buy for the AGP bus and it is remarkably quick in games and on synthetic tests. The card doesn't get too hot with the cooler that it came with however...

Cons: The card is listed as a -P model which Powercolor has listed on thier webpage with a COPPER cooler. This card is also listed as being clocked higher than the card that was sent to me. The pictures shown on's webpage show the actual card they ship however if you compare it to Powercolor's -P model they are clearly different.

Also at issue is the driver problems. ATI/AMD does not support the AGP bus for this card with thier latest drivers. I had to hack the latest drivers to make them work with this card. While they do improve performance over the drivers that shipped with the card it's an extreme hassle to do this with each driver release.

Other Thoughts: needs to re-label thier page on this item and remove the -P from it.
