Incredible card for the price I paid

MSI R7 260 1GD5 OC 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Super quiet fan, over engineered heat sync makes for super low temperatures, great overclocker (I've gotten 12% without even changing voltage) and it comes overclocked 50ghz right outa the box. Perfectly acceptable for 1080p gaming , most modern titles stable 30fps with 1080p v sync on ultra settings, flag ship titles (far cry 3, crysis 3, shadow of mordor, ext) you have to turn down the settings a bit but not very much. (far cry 3 for example runs at 30fps on 1080p lowest settings or 720p at high settings or 800/600 on ultra settings, all fine and playable, that game is a beast) sexy card, classic black with some super sexy copper pipes out the top, just a pleasure to look at Extra pro = due to combined sales/offers/mail in rebate it was $80 cdn free delivery, that's the best performance per dollar EVER!

Cons: Minimal. The one beef I have with it would be the 1GB ram instead of 2. It's fine especially because it's very fast gddr5, but more buffer would be nice. Not enough to loose a egg for tho.

Overall Review: Very good card when it's 100$ or less, practically a steal for the level of performance you get. At the standard 129$ you probably would get ever so slightly better performance out of a stock r7-260X or a GT 750, but not get a cooler this well made.

little engine that could

AMD A10-6700 - A-Series APU Richland Quad-Core 3.7 GHz Socket FM2 65W AMD Radeon HD 8670D Desktop Processor - AD6700OKHLBOX

Pros: This is the one you want if you are on a budget, need a new rig and love to game. Integrated Graphics on apu is good enough for 60fps far-cry 3 on lowest settings, and on a game that gpu heavy it's still pretty amassing looking. plays almost anything from 2011 and older on 1080p perfectly at highest setting no-prob.

Cons: cant think of one

Overall Review: If you are trying to decide between this and a 6800k , ask yourself this question, "Am I actually gona overclock?" If the answer is no, chose this one. The heat index is pretty massive between the 2 and the lower heat means you can slow down the stock fan quite a bit, keeping it running rather quiet.
