SAMSUNG UD590 Series U28D590D Black 28
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Single panel display, unlike the Dell UP2414q, which has hoooorrible input lag. If you game at all, you NEED this panel or the Asus distant cousin. I picked this up becuase I wanted a 4k panel for Wild Star's Launch, and the Asus model hadn't launched. You NEED a 28 inch monitor for 4k.

Cons: It's a barebones model, no vesa mounts, the stand is...flimsy is being nice. But it works. The colors aren't as good as the Dell up2414q, but in gaming the trade off for faster gtg response time vs perfect color match is a worth while trade off.

Other Thoughts: Looking for someone to buy my Dell up2414q...since it kinda sucks now.

SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100361-2SR Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Despite it's appearance, it's actually a very very sturdy card. I would have thought a back plate would have been necessary, but from my hands on experience with this card, it doesn't need a back plate. The heat sink runs the length of the card, and keeps the PCB from bowing at all. Which is good, because this card is LONG. I thought a back plate would be necessary given how ridiculously large this card is, but newp, it's find.

Hynix memory dimms mean better mining, if thats your deal. In general the overclock ability of this card is awesome depending on how well your case ventilates.

Cons: Fan is a little weird at certain speeds...~80-100% speed. Might mean a bad fan later on, but that's a simple RMA.

Other Thoughts: It's worth the money, the MSI lightning edition might be a better option if it ever comes in stock.

ASUS R9290X-DC2OC-4GD5 Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very nice design, cooling is very efficient. Looks pretty.

Cons: I got a pair of these cards with the Elphidia memory dims. Both cards are bad, won't post, Black Screen of death after 1 days work of use, no bit coin, no lite coin, no overclocking.

Other Thoughts: The cards are freaking massive, so if you have a Corsair 900D, forget these GPU's installing them is a nightmare, they extend out at the PCI slot port, so it's impossible to reach the Thumbscrews in to secure them. On top of that there so massive they sag even when you've practically bloodied your fingers trying install them properly. After an hour of use, they decided to not 2 seperate systems on Corsair HX1050/AX1200i PSU's.
