Pros: Fast, Cool design

Cons: AMD Catalyst Control Center not the best with cooling the card with no custom fan curve. Downloaded MSI Afterbuner to make custom fun curves.

Overall Review: PRICE!!! bought this yesterday for $750 and today it's $620...... My friends get it a couple weeks ago for $550. come on newegg i come to you for good prices.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7970 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card GV-R797OC-3GD

Pros: Fast and clear gaming

Cons: After 6 mouth of light use it screams when a game is played even minecraft makes it yell.

Overall Review: first repair: Gigabyte told me there was a broken part and fixed it. But did not fix it at all. and i took a month to fix out of the expected 2 weeks Second repair same day i got it back: Beyond there repair and was going to give me a new one but where back ordered for 2-8 weeks. the offered a full refund so bye bye gigabyte. They also have bad service when it come to repairs my card come back after the first repair with rust and hair stuck on and in the fans

High performance and stays nice and cool

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 HYBRID GAMING, 11G-P4-6598-KR, 11GB GDDR5X, HYBRID & LED, iCX Technology - 9 Thermal Sensors

Pros: - Easy to install - Max temp 45c in VR for several hours and most games at 35c - Idles at 25c

Cons: - Stock radiator fan made some pulsing sounds at random times.

Overall Review: - I recommend getting a different static pressure fan for the radiator. i did and my problem went away. Runs quiet and cool i hardly hear it.

Great Motherboard

ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: This is a fast high power motherboard. Bios interface easy to use

Cons: Software that comes with motherboard is NOT WINDOWS 8 READY. But with a few changes to the software code overclock software will work. (Only recommended for high tech coders to overclock)

Overall Review: Great motherboard and easy safe overclocking FOR WINDOWS 7 Not recommend for windows 8 unless you plan to not overclock.
