SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100226L
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100226L

Pros: fast!.. over clocking has never been easier. ati overdrive brings nvidia's overclocking utility to shame.. for the longest time i was an nvidia fan.. but i tried this card.. and im never going back to nvidia can wait till the 4870x2 drop's price!!! i had the card over core clocked to 750mhz and memory clock to 950mhz. ..and the temp of the card didn't go over 54c. at stock clocks it runs about 41c awesome card !!!

Cons: needs power!!!!.. the box says requires 450w minimum ... but i think you need more..if your going to get this card.. i hope you have a 600w or higher or your going to realize the card runs a little slow..

Overall Review: its way better to reformat your windows before expecting the better from the card..i'd do this or your not going to get the full performance..and you may get some glitching that you've never seen before.. reformat!!! it works! just throwing on new card drivers doesn't help to well..

Thermaltake CL-W0038 Liquid Cooling System 208 - Copper VGA Waterblock

Pros: i love this thing,bought two of them. mounted on to my 48702.. with alittle tweeking!! on auto setting for my fan it temp hits about 52c idle. without water.. on a load.. well i'd be lucky if it stayed under 88c ..hot... water cooling. i got 32c idle. 56c load. no oc.. no need with that card.

Cons: my cooling kit came with 3/4in hose. i needed smaller hose 1/4 haha mine was alittle big i could have bought new stuff but i made some connections with old hose around the house works ever sense then!. but could have been easier.

Overall Review: i think the guy under me must have been using real water and not coolant... coolant has anti shock in it. same thing happend to me with my water cooling kit.. all over.. motherboard gpu cpu ram hdd... everything... nothing.. i mean nothing happend.. so im not sure what he was doing.. trying to break down a good product..

AMAZING

Pros: I upgraded to this from a 17in lcd from 2001.. needless to say this made an amazing difference i cant believe how good this monitor looks. the best this is, when im hogging the tv my girlfriend can use this to play ps3 or the 360 on.. this monitor is going to my household living great!

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: Just buy it!!

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4870 X2 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100251SR

Pros: this card is amazing. most of the time on crysis warhead i can get 80fps and that is insane. no problem with heat alittle hot when its on auto fan 84c but when i turn it on manual at 52% i can keep it around 54C i love this card. and i think the bigger the card the better lets people know that you mean it when it comes to gaming. love this card!

Cons: eats my 1000w power supply alive

garbage

Pros: cool glass frame..

Cons: where to start... DOA basically It would turn on but would not read the card Then when we emailed the tech support no response. Another email later Still no reply We still have not been helped going on 2 months of ownership

Overall Review: Spend more money somewhere else. It'll be worth it
