XFX R9-290X-8DFD Radeon R9 290X 8GB 512-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Double Dissipation Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: After some issues with my motherboard not seeing the card, I got the info needed to set it right and the card works great. Newegg did an awesome job helping me, I can not thank them enough. That's y I do business with them. Wile I have only used this for a couple of days now I have no reason to doubt it will work good for a long time.
XFX, makes great cards and I stand by them. I have used over 7 of there cards in various builds and have yet to have a bad one, Some are quite old in comp life standards.
I will update this if there is a reason, but as for right now this card rocks.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: When you install this in an older sandy bridge you will need to set up your chip set to run the card. Your motherboard Manuel should help if not contact the manufacturer, they will let you know what to change. I don't want to post my changes in case yours my differ.

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: This card is awesome. Plays anything I have on max, bench marks are great, stays cool, you can over clock it if you like but it is fast as is. I have punished it wile over clocking and it recovers just fine. Over clocking was to see how much I could push it. I returned it back to default settings. I all so added a second fan for a push pull setup. I left there fan set up the way it came and added the extra fan on my controller so I could turn it up when I start gaming.

Cons: Make sure you uninstall all drivers if upgrading. Go to website and use the latest drivers.
I had trouble with the system not picking it up when booting and throwing errors, it took me a day to figure out that quick boot was causing the trouble, turned it off, works fine.

Other Thoughts: I was concerned about having trouble making this work after reading all the comments. But it works just fine. THIS CARD IS NOT FOR A ROOKIE COMP WANNABE. I will be buying another if the price comes back down and run it in crossfire.

G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have 16 gigs in one comp, 32 gigs in another one. They both over clocked easy. You should make sure it is compatible with your board or your over clocks may might not run at speeds it should.

Cons: None it is the best hands down.

Other Thoughts: Buy the cooling fan, I used Liquid cooling for my processor so no clearance problems. If you use a giant air cooler you may problems. You can remove the heat sink but I would not recommend this because they get hot.
