PowerColor AX7870 2GBD5-2DHV2 Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap after rebate.

Cons: This card is mediocre at mining and suffers from periodic hardware errors. Gets 330 Khash/s at scrypt mining but with the hardware errors averages out to less than 300 work units. My sapphire 7850 gets a better WU rate, similar hash rate, and also draws less power.

Also, when I plugged this in as my main card, my display wouldn't work properly. I had to relegate it to second PCI-E slot and use another gfx card as my main card.
I suspect I could RMA this card but it's a hassle and I'm not sure they'd approve it anyways.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: one stick performed perfectly. gigabyte setting in bios was easy. There's an automatic presetting that autoset to 9-8-9-28 for me :)

Cons: The other stick was bad. memtest86+ showed thousands of errors. I wasn't aware what bad memory could do. Now I know. Several months of OS crashing on me, random system freeze, and I thought it was the OS or something else entirely. Nope. it's the memory.

Other Thoughts: Price was decent. Hopefully GSKILL RMA goes smoothly.

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: ...

Cons: Motherboard, like those on a few other reviewers computers, failed after several months. Dell will replace it but it's still a hassle.
