To the guy below me

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5970 (Hemlock) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100280SR
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5970 (Hemlock) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100280SR

Pros: To the guy below me. The driver not responding is because the 2d clocks are set too low(stock) just set them higher to GPU: 400 and Memory: 900. There is a helpful tutorial on how to fix this problem. It's not a big deal whatsoever. If you set your 2d clocks to that you shouldnt get that error. However your other problems I havent heard of before. But I would suggest trying what I just said before RMA'ing. I would type out where to set those at but unfortunately I dont have enough room. It's in your profiles. You have to create one in the ATI Catalyst Center then edit it so the values are 400 for the gpu and 900 for the memory clocks.

Nvidia Fan 4 Life

GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-4GD GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 3X 450W Video Card
GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-4GD GeForce GTX 770 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 3X 450W Video Card

Pros: Very fast. I chose the 4GB model which is awesome since I have a 30" monitor at 2560x1600. I haven't owned an NVidia card since the GTX 295. My previous card was a Radeon 5970. I will never own a dual gpu card again let alone an AMD card. AMD takes forever to release drivers and dual gpu cards have too many problems and issues period(atleast AMD ones do)

Cons: The price but then again its normal for new cards to be $400+ I would definitely pick this card over a 780. I am now set for the holiday season and the new games coming out end of this year and beginning of the next year. Can't wait. Money well spent.

Overall Review: Just buy it. If you're thinking about switching from AMD to Nvidia just do it. I don't know why I went to AMD in the first place with the 5970. I upgraded from a GTX 295 to a 5970 and had nothing but problems with different games.

Awesome case

Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support
Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: Unique case. Looks like a GameCube on steroids. Easy to transfer all my stuff. Removeable motherboard tray. Hides cables REALLY well. I have an old 5970(dual gpu) graphics card that fits in with ease. On a sidenote I had no problems with the hot swap bays whatsoever. Apparently some people are having the problem.

Cons: My Thermaltake 1000W power supply. It's about 2 1/2 years old. Is a little too big to fit in there snuggly. No biggie.

Overall Review: Fedex sucks. 3 day shipping took 5 days.

Quiet and Cool

Pros: Easy install and it cleared my G.Skill Sniper ram with ease. So if you have the sniper ram and wonder if it will clear it now you know.

Cons: None other than it didnt install itself.

Overall Review: I installed this on an 1366 socket. Was really easy. I replace my Thermaltake V9 cpu cooler. I just didnt like how big and how much it stuck out plus it was pretty loud. This looks really nice being black like my case and the other accessories inside. I cant get over how quiet it is.

Awesome

Pros: It's ram so it installs easy. Great price with coupon code. They were recognized instantly by motherboard. Great product and they match my case haha.

Cons: None

Pros: Adjustable height, touch sensitive buttons, cheapest and has the fasted response time of the rest of the 2560x1600 monitors on this site currently. Simply beautiful and flawless in gaming

Cons: No osd.. but I dont really care. Some might think thats a big deal.

Overall Review: Just buy it if you have the cash. I got this monitor the 17th it arrived quickly (thanks newegg) and had ZERO dead pixels.
