ASUS R7260X-DC2OC-2GD5 Radeon R7 260X 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I'd say the performance are pretty good, when it works.

Cons: Crashes often. Usually it's a sudden black screen, and a few seconds later I lose the sound as well. I have to hold the power button to manually reset. What's funny is that it crashes most often while surfing the web or watching a video (tried different browsers and media players, no improvement). While gaming, it's usually just artifacts showing up. Like a few lines of very big pixels, almost like my game is being censored for no reason at all (it can happen at different spots and happens more often on high graphics games).

Other Thoughts: When I bought this card a few months ago, I knew it was a new product and that the drivers weren't really tuned yet so I gave it some time. I checked AMD's website daily for driver updates and always gave a shot at the new beta drivers. The issue was never solved and some drivers actually seemed to make it worse. Now the drivers are flagged as release candidate and still it crashes often (3 times in the past 2 hours).

Seeing the number of people having the same issues as me all over the web with R7 260x from different manufacturers, I'm beginning to think the problem lies in the architecture of the card itself. And if it is the case, this card model should've never been released.

I've always had faith in AMD and have always supported them. Now I'm tempted to buy from NVidia instead.

Pros: I get good fps at ultra 1080p in planetside 2. Wasn't expecting that.

Cons: I also get the weird of screen artifacts popping up, more intense at ultra in planetside 2 but still present in low graphics games like hearthstone. Also I often get black screens, either soon after powering up, while browsing the web or when starting a game (probably when it switches to fullscreen). Sometimes while watching netflix, it will go black screen for no reason while I'm not touching anything (and it's not sleep mode) but I kow the processor is still running because I keep hearing the sound coming out of the usb jack.

Other Thoughts: I've read around that I would have to underclock it to render it stable. I didn't try it yet but I find it absurd that they would release a product on the market if it's so unstable. It has gotten better with the 13.12 catalyst driver but it's not quite there yet. Plus it's been a month now since 13.12 was released and still no new beta driver.

Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Low price, 3 fans included, dust filters, somewhat durable

Cons: One of the side panels was bent when I received it. Had to put my weight onto it to screw it in place.

Lots of piece of plastic from one of the front usb port and it hasn't worked since. That was a few months ago, but I guess I worked it too much with my headphone's cable, and it did last for a good year and a half.

Cable management is a bit tight, not sure if that's normal.

Ugly. Never got used to that look.

Other Thoughts: I used this case for my second rig ever. The previous one lasted a good 7 years and I knew my old case wouldn't cut it (one of those top mounted psu cases with no fan mounting spot, just the airflow from the cpu exhaust...)

I was on a low budget and saw this case was not only cheap but highly recommended. It didn't let me down and I would also recommend it. Can't expect perfection at that price range, this case is as close as it gets to it.
