HIS H697F2G2M Radeon HD 6970 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought this to replace my HIS 4870 512MB and with the current release drivers, this 6970 beats my 4870 by a fair margin. Also, the card has wonderful power and throttle management!

Cons: Cooler could have been a bit better. But nothing to cry over.
I keep the fan at 45%.

Other Thoughts: With the same settings between the 4870 and 6970 the framerates (drivers are 10.11) are:
Counter-Strike: Source: 43% increase.
Shattered Horizon: 270% increase.
Crysis Warhead: 93% increase.
Left 4 Dead 2: 32% increase.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call Of Pripyat: 200% increase.

Worth it? Yep.
My CPU: Q6600 OCed to 2.7Ghz.

Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD800BEVS 80GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 1.5Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I purchased this drive to replace the 40GB 2MB cache Seagate drive in my PS3 and wow. The performance gains on copying and game installation is quite noticeable. Go for this drive!

Cons: None! Fast, quiet, cool and can handle the PS3's heavy HDD access.

Other Thoughts: none
