SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6950 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity 100312-1GDP
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6950 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity 100312-1GDP

Pros: the card runs cool, 56c was the max I got under stress "Ido have the fan at 65%, not loud at all". The performance is great for the $250 range (Crysis 1 on high 56fps, on Ultra high 36fps) the power draw is small even at load.

Cons: I dont have much that counts as a con since it has noting to do with the card

Overall Review: RIG-- AMD phenom 2 955, 4gb mushkin ddr3 1600, asrock 870 extreme 3, 2x 250gb 7200rpm raid 0 main drive, HD 6950, cooler master rc690

Don't fear

ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-RS71 17.3" Gaming Laptop with Intel Core i7 4700HQ 2.40GHz (3.40Ghz), 12GB Memory, 750GB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 3 GB GDDR5, DVD+-RW DL, Windows 8.1 64-Bit
ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JS-RS71 17.3" Gaming Laptop with Intel Core i7 4700HQ 2.40GHz (3.40Ghz), 12GB Memory, 750GB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 3 GB GDDR5, DVD+-RW DL, Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Pros: Everything is in tip top shape. The HDD is in good order and the LCD have no scratches on it. The os that is loaded is legit. I would recommend this refeb to anyone.

Cons: The chassis has two minor dings but they are not big and can be overlooked.

CARD: The FPS Awakening

Pros: I love this thing, I say that a lot but this card is a BEAST. I don't own a game that can bring this card to its knees. Gigabytes quality is top. The heat sink on it is one of the beast I have ever had. I had a Gigabyte 670 with the same cooler so I had some exp with the heat sink. The heat sink shroud is metal, "I love that"

Cons: I am putting this here just to fill space. The card is long 3/4in longer then my old GTX 670. Keep that in mind. I have a Coolermaster RC690 and that is a big case. Any longer and it would not fit.

Overall Review: Here is one of the marks I ran. Unigine Heaven 4.0 FPS: 66.9, Score: 1686, Min FPS: 25.2, Max FPS: 138.6 Direct3D11 1920x1080 8xAA fullscreen Quality: Ultra, Tessellation: Extreme

For the love of buttons

Pros: This mouse can not be beat. Top notch quality and a great feel. I don't just use it for MMOs. Most games have you use the number keys to switch weapons.

Cons: The only thing I have against this mouse is were Razer put the forward and back buttons.

BIG

Pros: The cooler is very well made and dose it's job well. You have lots of cord to play with. The height it sits above the ram is enough for my G-skill rip jaw x dimms. It's mount is solid and has very little movement once the bolt it down.

Cons: I took one egg off for this. Now it is a pain in the *** to install ram after you put this cooler in. In fact I would say cant or should not. You will have to take the cooler off first. I would have like to have seen a higher flow fan. The stock fan dose fine but it can be better.

Overall Review: I would recommend this heat sink. If you need a nice big heat sink but don't have the height needed for a stand up 120mm. You should be fine getting this cooler.

good

Pros: they do all that they say they will. Bright! You can get better fans, but you can pay more too.

Cons: None they are working great for me.
