Pros: It looks great, low power needs make it ideal for upgrade of an otherwise "stock" computer. Most store-bought average desktops will need no power supply upgrade for this card, I can now play WoW and War Thunder on a 2006 machine with an AMD Athlon x 2 5000+ CPU and a 350 watt PSU. Gets 50+ FPS with medium - hi settings. It's totally plug n play. It does not draw attention to itself through noise or heat or system crashes. It simply works well. If you have a better base system, it will work even better. Excellent picture quality.
Other Thoughts: I bought this used elsewhere; I buy from Newegg all the time. I like getting a good deal. This is the upgrade you want if you want to be able to casual-game with your older machine - or even a newer machine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good capacity/price. Best SSD I've had - I've had 4 others. It's really fast - scores 7.9 on WEI in Win 7 64 bit on a SATA II MB. About 2X as fast as my SATA II 60 GB OCZ. Noticeable improvement in overall boot time and performance. No BSODs.
Cons: Not cheap enough for high capacity use, No other issues.
Other Thoughts: can't wait till these are 1 TB for this cost.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works very well without any negative issues. Very quiet, very cool running. I currently play War Thunder and get 80 - 90 fps with everything EVERYTHING maxed out to beyond movie quality. I tried it out on WoW and same thing. The WoW shadows even were maxed and I got 80-90 FPS. I underclocked it to keep it silent and still get over 60 FPS everywhere (with v-sync turned on). I get no glitches, no artifacts - no issues. It's tiny and does a fabulous job. I got this on sale here + a rebate. I couldn't say no to that deal. It replaced a Radeon 4890 that I got 4 1/2 hard years of use from and was still working. The boost in quality, coolness and quietness was impressive. It scores 172% better for me than the 4890 did and that was a hi-performance model. It only needs 1 8 pin power connector instead of 2 6 pin plugs. It comes with an adapter so you can use a 6 pin plug. I won't need another card for quite a long time. MSI is my main go-to company for MBs and vid cards. My MSI MB is still perfectly fine after about 5 hard years - I had it running in a semi truck over the road in a compact case for 3 years without issue. Performance of this card is on par with the Nvidia GTX 760. This is more card than I needed but the price was great and I would've been nuts to buy the R7 265 or R9 270 (basic model) when I got this for about the same. I do like the Nvidia products but AMD beats them currently in $/performance.
Cons: A bit on the thick side - it barely fit but it does fit. It's a tad fatter than my 4890. It didn't come with a crossfire connector but I don't need it anyhow. It makes direct contact with one of my ram locking tabs. This is as much a fault of the MB as the vid card but it still works fine.
Other Thoughts: This is a really excellent product. I love the small size. It allows for better airflow in any size case. I can see the mainstream cards going to this size just because it's better for airflow.READ FULL REVIEW
