Pros: Overclocked the memory to 1600MHz (1500 stock) and core to 1150MHz (1030 stock), nearly a 12% OC. Could probably go even higher but haven't tried yet. Registered over 3500 in 3DMark. Efficient cooling, never went above 67ºC even under extreme torture tests. Fan works well with MSI Afterburner auto-controlling the speed. It's probably the quietest fan I've heard at 100%. Played Grid 2, Sleeping Dogs, and Metro Last Light maxed out (except for Metro's SSAA) all with great framerates. This is a relatively new model so AMD offers great driver support for the newer games.
Cons: Won't marry me
Other Thoughts: Got this for 115 after the rebate, plus two free games. Amazing card for that price, but not sure if it's worth it otherwise. This review is basically for the HD7790 1GB model overall, since as we all know the differering brands are basically the same, with the exception of card style, housing, factory OC, customer support and what-not. So I recommend grabbing the cheapest HD7790 you can find and run with it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 3Dmark06 benchmark (stock): 10831...up from my old 8800GTS 320MB's score of 9266 (stock). I haven't tried OCing yet. Paid about 50 dollars less than the GTS for this.
Cons: A little disappointed with it's performance in Crysis...still have to play at medium setting. I can play at high, but the framerate is just low enough to be annoying. Also (very minor con), PNY doesn't seem to care about the aesthetics of the card and just slaps the label on, leaving air bubbles all over.
Other Thoughts: If you already own an 8800GTS and want to better prepare for Crysis, I wouldn't recommend this card, go with a GTX or Ultra or SLI two of these. Runs a little hot, mid 80's under load. I'm planning on putting a better cooler on it before OCing. Got this for 249 from another website on launch day. Glad I made that move now, but even though the price went up, these cards are easily the best value right now. At least until the GTS's prices drop to around 200 (which they should soon).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KWorld ATSC-110 Digital / Analog HDTV Tuner
Pros: Awesome HD picture in Windows Media Center. Only picks up Fox and NBC digital channels but that's of course due to my location and cheap HD antenna and not the card.
Cons: Poor software but I don't use it. Just use Media Center or MythTV and you'll be fine. I heard the remote has a weak signal and has to be pointed directly at the receiver but I haven't tried it since I don't need it.
Other Thoughts: I don't know why people are saying it doesn't work with Vista...what can I say...IT DOES. In fact, it works out of the box as Vista will detect and install drivers by itself, you won't even need the CD.READ FULL REVIEW
