SeaSonic X-SERIES X-1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Provide the power it claims and is very quiet. Comes with all the cables you would expect. Looks and feels solid.

Cons: In a bottom installation the fan is on the top which makes it direct air inside the case. The sleeves on the cables are short and show the colored wire underneath. The 20-pin motherboard cable is in two parts and plugs into separate rows on the PSU.

Other Thoughts: Previously owned a Corsair 850 and needed to upgrade for duel 7950s.

SAPPHIRE 21197-00-40G Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card replaced 2x 6950 in crossfire and does an outstanding job. I test it using BF3 and it holds up. It is still being underutilized as this card is a PCI-3 and I only have it in a PCI-2 for now. I plan to upgrade to the PCI-3 once the Intel 3930 is back in stock. The card is long and barely fits into my mid-case. If you are thinking of putting in a second for rossfire, be sure it will fit in the pci slots that align with your HDD bay.

Cons: I am a queit-pc enthusiest and this card gets LOUD when under load. That's why I removed one egg. Perhaps if this card wasn't $550+, I wouldn't have but come'on. I am purchasing the best video card out there and it's equiped with an old generation loud fan? Design it a little better or include a quiet fan for $1 more.

Other Thoughts: I've used a lot of cards and so far this definitely feels like the best. I will do more benchmarking and return with an update.

SAPPHIRE 21197-00-40G Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Unbelievably crystal clear BF3. I came from a Crossfire 6950 setup and this single card beats them. 3.0 PCI-E.

Cons: None so far. Owned it one day, but will revisit this post if things change.

Other Thoughts: Had to install the drivers using the old VGA before I could get this to work.
