Nice upgrade

SAPPHIRE Nitro+ Radeon RX 6600 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card 11309-01-20G
SAPPHIRE Nitro+ Radeon RX 6600 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card 11309-01-20G

Pros: Virtually Quiet Runs smoothly

Cons: None I can think of so far

Overall Review: I bought this to upgrade my dying 290x that kept crashing my old rig and since I was building a new rig needed a more reliable and modern GPU. Using userbenchmark to score my new build comparing my old gpu and new gpu I get a 51% performance increase and it is very noticeable while gaming. Price is a little high but comparing it to the scalper market it's a steal at MSRP. Once the rest of the current gen cards go back down (if they ever do) the price might be a bit high. Would recommend this card at MSRP if you are upgrading from older gen GPUs.

Most Critical Review

Pros: 1tb inexpensive doubled my storage

Cons: slow delivery (not Seagates fault) don't notice a difference in speed when loading games ps4 blue screened twice after installing sshd

Overall Review: When I purchased this over the holidays I paid for 3 day shipping and it didn't arrive until a week later (7 days). I tried contacting Newegg via customer support but being the holidays support kept crashing or became unavailable. Call back wouldn't work and when I finally got through via chat the service shut down as soon as I typed in my request for a shipping refund therefore not able to voice my concerns with support. There is a couple week grace period to get in contact with support to request for a refund and I could not get through. When I finally had time and support was finally working I passed my grace period so I didn't even bother. Note to self and others dont pay for shipping during the holidays you end up waiting the same amount of time as the free shipping.

Recommended to gamers who need that extra space

Patriot Burst Elite 2.5" 1.92TB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PBE192TS25SSDR
Patriot Burst Elite 2.5" 1.92TB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PBE192TS25SSDR

Pros: Works as Advertised Large Capacity

Cons: Capacity not as Advertised but all companies advertise slightly higher space than what is show in system. 1.92TB is closer to 1.70

Overall Review: Overall I'm happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend this to gamers who are looking for that extra space to play those heavy games with a lot of DLC, MODs and large game patches like ARK: Survival Evolved. Or even to content creators. It's not as fast as an NVME but it'll get the job done.
