Pros: Great price
Cons: Battery life could be a little longer, just over 2 hours active use plus wireless.
Overall Review: Bought in Sept 2016, reviewing in Jan 2017, still extremely happy with this laptop. I use it 3 - 4 hours (at least) every day. Seller was proactive in ensuring I was satisfied. One of my more satisfying purchases.
Pros: Previous card was from XFX and was very satisfied. This card is double wide (as the photos show), but I was aware of this coming in. Some gotchas are listed in the con section below, but please do not let them turn you away from this card or manufacturer; I am SUPER happy with this card! NewEgg price is lower priced than any local stores of this 6870 card, so another bonus. Registration of the card was simple and really makes in difference in how you look at the whole experience - XFX really takes pride in their cards.
Cons: First, my previous card required a six pin connector for power, this card requires TWO. If you do not have an up to date power supply, you may end up buying one if you choose this card (as I did - another $100US). Not really bad, but more of a warning.
I had to go to the XFX site to download the Win7 64bit drivers, as they were not on the Driver CD. I really hate using a brower at 800x600 resolution. Had I known this was the case, I would have downloaded them before installing the card. Not a major issue, but just another warning.
Overall Review: I obviously bought this card because I play games. My previous card was an XFX 4850 and it ran like a champ, but I found myself dialing down the details on the latest games. This card eats them for breakfast. Like Skyrim? Go ultra settings with card! Find Rage to not render textures fast enough? BAM! You finally get to see all you are supposed to. I am VERY happy with this card.
