Pros: Playing at 4k on some games with low to mid settings ..Even know its a mid tier card for 1080p
Don't let this little beast fool you in lower resolutions it will perform better than expected.
Runs smooth in games
RGB simple but nice..
Cons: Runs hot if you don't manually play with fan controls.
Make sure to go into Radeon software and take off ZERO frozen fans will not spin in auto like it should
Drivers still liitle buggy for fan control...
I have to manually set fan curve and load profile for fans to operate before I game every
Can not get it too work with MSI Afterburner fan control..
Overall Review: Will work with mid range CPU and Ryzen 5 just fine
Recommended Ryzen 3600 and higher for best performance with no or little bottleneck. Tried different CPU's...and 3700x runs beautiful Smooth..
Great card with alot power for the dollar.
Very happy with purchase..
Pros: Went out on a limb to purchase this drive. I've been a huge WD fan for years to my surprise I did some benchmarking with this drive vs my similiar WD drive the burst rate surpassed my WD by quite a bit it was 200 mb's plus vs 149 mb's. So beyond its higher burst this drive just feels so much faster and on top of that its really quiet. It's fast no doubt about it but we will see how reliable it is in the near future. Sorry WD but I think Hitachi has won me over for the time being.
Cons: Access time around 17ms. Access time and other areas is important to a certain degree but if you want speed look at high burst it will be the more important factor in my opinion.
Overall Review: I did research on access time vs burst and what I came up with is that the burst is how fast you receive the data to you like example Sprinting to point A to point B. So in regards to Access time its not the huge factor compared to burst do your research you will see.
Pros: Runs smooth and fast on all operating systems tried them all. Great layout solid contruction solid caps durable 2 loaded with about every feature you want and more, runs alot cooler than its ati predecessor. Gigabyte motherboards has always been real solid they have never let me down yet. More stable than others like AS** and other top makers. Very happy with my purchase go ahead grab one you wont be dissappointed.
Cons: Not much of a con but raid does work well so does ahci. Won't recognize sata cd/dvd rom burner drives in windows vista when in raid and ahci. Only ide drives work only.just have to load raid and ahci drivers with ide drive and then it will recognize sata drives in windows. kind of a hassel but it does work awsome after those steps. Does have ide slot available not like other boards out there that dont have this ide on there motherboards from the nvida 700 family pretty much there loss. You have to have an ide slot to work in raid and ahci, Get this board for guarantee raid and ahci to work. The 2 puple sata ports on top next to the ide only work with a ide harddrive plugged in only. You only have 4 true available sata ports.
Overall Review: Dont worry any video card does fit right over the chipset no problem and still stays cool.
Pros: This card rocks,runs smooth as ice .also runs very cool vrs 8800gt about 40-45c idle,50-60c during load.Ive seen up 10-25 percent increase on most games vrs 8800gt.For you Crysis fans you wont find a better card for the price to perfomance ratio guarenteed!Dont hesitate buy this card its worth every penny.I reviewed just about every video card out their before choosing this card. For the gamers choice go with BFG very solid Video cards.
Overall Review: Traded my 8800gt in for this.Glad I did it was we'll worth it.
Pros: Picture bright and perfect brought my games to life detail is amazing. no dead pixels HDMI hook up is the best quality picture on this monitor. Bought this monitor for gaming runs smooth,was worried about 8ms being to slow but took that chance 8ms is plenty fast on this monitor trust me Ive even had a 22" with 5ms doesn't even compare.So take chance buy it you won't regret it's worth every penny and its affordable.
Cons: No dvi but not a big deal Hdmi is better anyway is the best quality you can get, vga hdmi are placed high on this monitor rather than placed low only if you are picky about connection placement Side buttons maybe confusing at first have to hold one of the buttons down to bring up the picture control screen blue screen on hdmi no standby or powerdown on hdmi only on vga hook up.All very tolerable
Overall Review: Hdmi has better detail and brighter than vga mode on this monitor just set it too 1920x1200 and your set dont let the cons bring you down this monitor picture detail is as good if not better than the expensive well known brands.Westinghouse is very high quality for the price.Im very happy to be a proud owner.Dont forget to purchase hdmi/dvi cable on newegg to go along with this monitor you'll need it
