MSI Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 R9 290 4GD5 (V803) 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Quiet! All the reviews were saying this card would be super loud but it has been nothing but quiet for me. I'm upgrading from a 8800gt and that thing had a killer loud whine; this thing is super quiet. I thought I'd need an after market cooler from those reviews but no need now. Fraps shows me cap'd at 91fps never seen it go below 70 with all settings high in MP.
High end card works with a 650watt PS.

Cons: When first getting into a ghosts MP game it lags for like 10 secs then goes away to awesome FPS. Might be a problem with the game still loading.

Other Thoughts: Just waiting on my BenQ XL2420TE to arrive so I can get the best experience out of this card.
This card really shook up nvidias overpriced lineup.
The 8800gt came out with the first Crysis and shook up the market and now I feel this card is the next 8800gt because it has done the same thing. Even though $400 is by no means affordable $600+ is ridiculous. So glad to see a card that costs almost half the price is knocking these "titans" down. :)

Pros: In all I have 8 sticks of this stuff , they all work great at 800mhz 5-5-5-15 @1.8v. All stick have passed memtest x86.

Cons: Our family pc has a biostar TF520 motherboard and for some reason it doesn't accept 4GB and blu screens on startup. So currently I only have 3 modules installed.

Other Thoughts: My infrared thermometer shows the sticks temperatures at 51.9C.

Pros: I always love products that use aluminum. The brushed anodized aluminum looks very nice and helps to dissipate heat.

Cons: The aluminum is used to encase the plastic structure. Would be better if used an 'ipod like' aluminum structure.

Other Thoughts: Less plastic the better.
