Galaxy 67NPH6DV5ZVX GeForce GTX 670 GC 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Installed this along with new motherboard, proc and memory. Sweet - easy and even did a clean xfer of Windows 7 Ultimate without a hitch or losing any apps. Got the latest drivers from nVidia website and voila - this is one fast mama and love the CUDA for Adobe products. Also, amazingly the board is also very quiet which from some reviews seemed to have been an issue.

Cons: None that I can state.

Other Thoughts: I watched the battle of nVidia vs AMD (Radeon etc) for several years now, and finally, I have to say, I am now leaning towards nVidia not just because of Adobe support, but particularly due to very clean drivers. This has been one of the cleanest and easiest installs ever. I am a power user on Adobe products such as AE, PP and PS.... Sony Vegas Pro seems to like this as well. Very stable so far.

SAPPHIRE 100351SR Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card OC with Boost

Pros: None to speak of as AMD drivers are total junk. So sad as they used to actually be good.

Cons: As said, AMD really needs to get their act together when it comes to drivers. Tried the latest (12.x.x)- fail, tried the latest beta version (I think 13 series beta) - semi fail - 50/50 and will not come back clean after reboot, shut down, sleep... basically needed to restart several time the hard way (hold power switch in for several seconds - cold boot). Not a good idea with Windows.

Other Thoughts: Too bad AMD is too busy putting extreme overhead into CCC instead of just focusing on making stable drivers.

Mediasonic HF2-SU2S2 3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Sweet little box! I do recommend reading the manual as many may forget to do that. :) Installation was clean and easy. Flexible in regards to configuration needs - supports multiple versions of RAID (0-5) and is quick on setup (took about 20 minutes including an interrupting phone call.) :)

Cons: Power on connector on the side of case instead of out the back. But really this is just an aesthetic issue - functionality is just fine.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to anyone that needs high speed drive access for apps such as Adobe CS5 apps. They now require high speed throughput. As stated, if you read just the first few paragraphs of the manual you should be up and running quickly.
