Pros: nice looking - hopefully it reacts as it should according to the specs
Cons: 630......now that's large
Other Thoughts: 4 GB of memory in a grafix card that's why I choose it., Not to mention all the other high performance it has.
After over a year of working with the 6950 which has 2 GB of memory I really do not see the big difference in this 4 Gb card...I mean I thought I would see a little difference in video games set to full or not. Hear's the thing,630 dollars for a 4 GB card and I'm thinking if I would of been better off with any 3 Gb card especially since the arrival of the 4 GB the 3 GB went down significantly in price. I want to see or feel that 4 GB of memory at work, you just cant tell ....................................
Pros: extremely quiet fan when turned up thru CCC
Cons: on the whole,
if you can think of one by all means throw down your con cause I don't have one
Other Thoughts: Card holds around 42*c. for idle which I thought was a bit high for [doing nothing] turned it up to 80% and had to really listen for it.
290x replaced a sapphire 6950,--when you turn up the fan in that you can hear it starting from 60% and it gets louder and louder till max.
I did notice a sound quality difference in music, riffmaster & games.
Catalyst software added a GPU/power% box which can be changed in many ways...Only use drivers from web for this card and I'm pleased thus far...very expensive.
Pros: Im in other thoughts
Cons: I doubt if their any
Other Thoughts: the 9000 series is here ....well almost.
I'm sure the 9000 series predecessors will soon follow, the FX9370 cant be the only one of its kind? and with that in mind its probably not the fastest one in that class either.So if your the type that needs the best of the best like I do when it comes to the incredibly cheap AMD Processor you'll wait for the rest of the family to follow.
