XFX Core Edition Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 FX-787A-CNFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Quiet, easy to install, good price.

Cons: Long card, had to wiggle it around to get into my case. The downloaded, updated driver hung up while installing, but I was able to get it going again by cancelling the install and running it again. There is a thin metal strip on the top that is easy to bend while installing, watch out for it as it can interfere with the fans.

Other Thoughts: Some of my older games, which ran fine on the 460 GT v2 card this one replaces, have graphical issues with this card. No other changes to my system, and re-installing the games did not help. Can't reall call it a con, as these games were never meant to run on modern machines anyway. Just interesting.

EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1363-KR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good price, good specs, well rated on PassMark charts.

Cons: I installed this card on my wife's WinVista desktop, with a 760w power supply, dual core Intel and maxed RAM at 4 GB. Installation went fine, but we keep getting flakey video in WoW. I have since re-loaded the entire system, including the OS and WoW, but continue to get stuttering, missing textures and flashing screens, even when the video settings are down on fair. We had better performance with the old video card, a GT 240.

Seems to run other games fine. WoW is a more CPU intensive game, but that doesn't explan why it ran better on a much older card.
