XFX Core Edition R9-295X-8QFA Radeon R9 295x2 8GB 1024 (512 x 2)-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Met expectations on most games (Runs Metro Last Light on max settings at 5760x1080 quite smooth)
- Installation of cooling unit was very simple
- Beautiful looking card design

Cons: - I'm primarily playing Wildstar these days, and my frame rates are dropping to single digits. I've actually seen 1fps. This is a severe drop off from my previous cards (2x 7970's)

Other Thoughts: For the price, i'd like to be able to play any new game flawlessly. Unfortunately that's not quite the case at the moment.

EVGA 03G-P4-2883-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's a powerful card. It looks pretty. You get what you pay for, with some exceptions. (See Cons).

Cons: Eyefinity/Surround support (5760 x 1080) is unsatisfactory.

Several games bug out or do not properly load on all 3 monitors.

My taskbar glitches when booting up, loading across the top of all three monitors instead of on the bottom of the middle. It has to be corrected everytime I boot up and occasionally after exiting games as well, which is exceedingly frustrating.

Other Thoughts: Ignoring the bugs, the card runs roughly equivalent to my 2 7970's, which is slightly disappointing, but fine.

Not an AMD fanboy, simply an enthusiast of high performance pc products, regardless of brand.

Rig specs: i7 3770k, 16 gigs ddr3, 7970x2 / 780ti

I reverted back to my 7970's for now.

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

Pros: Normally an Nvidea man, this was my first Radeon card. I got it for the eyefinity gaming potential and in that it certainly delivers!

I can run BF3 on ultra settings without any hiccups at 5760x1080 resolution.

Cons: My only concern.. I get excessive screen tearing when playing Mass Effect 3 (mostly during cutscenes and dialogues which are only on the center monitor) Not sure what to do about this :-\
