ASUS HD7950-DC2-3GD5 Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Amazing board...chews thru everything so far. CivV, MW3, Crysis...have'nt seen fps below 57 yet. Even a heavily modded Skyrim (with full HD textures) simply stunning! I can only tell the fans are running when gaming as I set them at 50%...I hear a low hum that in no terms distracts from the sound eminating from the speakers. Have no issues with heat either, as temps remain below 120F under load. Please see other thoughts...

Cons: Non so far

Other Thoughts: OK, first off you will need a large case. This card is 12" long! It sticks out 2" past my ASUS P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 MB and covers 3 PCI slots. My case is the Thermaltake Armor+ and its the perfect fit, in size aspect and ventilation as the case provides excellent airflow for this monster graphics card. Kudos to ASUS and Newegg!!!

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand TPG-1050M 1050W ATX 12V v2.3 & SSI EPS 12V v2.92 SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Well built, plenty of pwr when needed and runs cool and almost silent. Oh and wires do fit conveniently behind the MB for perfect airflow. No probs with plugs see other thoughts below.

Cons: non so far...

Other Thoughts: This is my second Thermaltake pwr supply, my first a 750W model from 5yrs ago thats still going strong powering E8500/X48/HD4890 system. For this new build I ordered the 850W TT Grand, but Newegg sent this 1050W model (did i win a lottery?) and I couldnt be happier! I didnt have issue with plugs as other reviews stated because I have the Thermaltake Armor+ case...the power supply goes on the top of the case (heat rises, duhh!) and any heat generated will be expelled thru the top case fan. This is a perfect fit for my system and couldnt be happier. Thanks Newegg, you are the best!!

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: WOW i say!!! Upgrade from E8500 and theres no comparison. Anti virus scan used to take 1hr 15min (800,000 files), now takes <18 min (600,000 files)! OC'd to 4.67GHz with ASUS AI SuiteII at default voltage. Any OC above that would fail and I didnt add voltage but hey, thats ok! Ran at 4.67 for 5hrs with mix of Skyrim and MW3, no crashes or freezes. Cant be happier with upgrade. Reset to default speed for forseable future.

Cons: Umm NO

Other Thoughts: tired of waiting to upgrade and dont plan to again for awhile. This should last quite a few yrs so the extra $$ spent is well worth it to me. Runs stable and cool but You'll definitely want another CPU heatsink/fan. My system...
