XFX Radeon HD 6870 HD-687X-CNFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: this card really does meet most of what I need it to and even then some. handles most simulation software nicely and games run well most of the time.

Cons: This card is a little unstable. I even attempted to lower the clock speed finally. It helped but even still this card gets hot. and its got an incredibly loud fan on it.

PowerColor Radeon HD 6850 AX6850 1GBD5-DH 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: When it actually works its stays up to speed with most games pretty well. Its not going to outshine anything at a higher price rang but it'll hold its own.

Its great at recovering when it crashes, it only takes about 25 seconds each time.

Cons: Runs Hot and Loud, crashes, seemingly more frequently now that time goes on.

Other Thoughts: while I think I have a card thats worse than usual this is a cheap card and its obvious once you plug it in and go. it does okay but I can its not much quieter than my AC unit outside.

OCZ Agility 3 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: very happy with the increased speed on reads. loads windows fast! anything involving heavy IO from the hard disk has noticeable improvement.

Cons: I'm using these in my desktop so the 2.5 in form factor needs a special mounting bracket. I would hardly call it a con
