Most Favorable Review

best 6950 hands down

HIS IceQ X Turbo X Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity H695QNX2G2M
HIS IceQ X Turbo X Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity H695QNX2G2M

Pros: Best 6950 out there. Super quiet (I cant hear it at all, my hard drive is the loudest in my rig), and cool (never above 60C), runs everything on ultra, it is shorter than the other 6950 and it is OC'd to 880 right out of the box. On top of ALL of that it is cheaper than the other 6950 with same specs. Must buy

Cons: 0

Overall Review: You wont regret this card. No problems with drivers, just make sure you have all the windows updates. Better than the nvidia drivers (referring to 650ti not too long ago. I returned it and decided to spend a bit more for the quality). With free dirt 3 and deus ex, this is a no brainer

Most Critical Review

not really tooless...

BYTECC Bracket-252K 2.5" Dual HDD/SSD Screwless Bracket For 3.5" Drive Bay - Black
BYTECC Bracket-252K 2.5" Dual HDD/SSD Screwless Bracket For 3.5" Drive Bay - Black

Pros: it works

Cons: not exactly tooless... the provided plastic 'screws' are meant to be holders that you just push in.. but it doesnt really work. i ended up using screws my case (antec 900) provided to secure the bracket.

Overall Review: save yourself an extra dollar and buy the cheaper version.

Short Review

HIS Radeon R9 290X 4GB GDDR5 CrossFireX Support Video Card H290XF4GD
HIS Radeon R9 290X 4GB GDDR5 CrossFireX Support Video Card H290XF4GD

Pros: running bf3, crysis 3 at max settings @1080p read other thoughts

Cons: a bit on the loud side and quite toasty, but i expect this from a reference design

Overall Review: running at 1080p only, i know some of you would point out and say a 280x would be enough, but i require minimum 60fps at all times at max settings; also future-proofing. furthermore i use this for bc mining, hence the compute prowess eliminates the 780, and titan because of the price

HIS iPower IceQ X² Boost Clock Radeon R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H280XQM3G2M

Pros: essentially a 7970 for just $299!!! Overclocks like a champ

Cons: read others

Overall Review: probably not the silent type card, if that is what youre looking for. id say it is slightly quieter than my 350d case fans
