DAT 7970

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7970 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 21197-00-40G
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7970 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 21197-00-40G

Pros: Runs cool, overclocks incredibly well - thanks to the 28nm manufacturing process no doubt. Can handle BF3 ultra settings at 60 fps+ in 1080p. Sapphire includes all the adapters you could ever want including a 10ft hdmi cable and several minidp adapters! As far as the new 7970 cards that have come out, I believe sapphire's bundle to be the best value!!!

Cons: None. There's nothing to complain about, even the drivers that AMD have are holding up well for the new release!

Overall Review: Card is 10 inches long.

Great motherboard.

Pros: Amazingly affordable! Pci-e 2.0 AM3 support (I put a Regor in this and it works flawlessly) M.I.B II overclocking built in to the motherboar DDR2 1066 memory support as well as lower clocks Gigabit Ethernet Amd 770 chipset

Cons: No con, excellent yet affordable board.

Overall Review: There's no reason to not buy this board!... seriously!

The little cpu that could!

Pros: Relatively fast. Virtualization support. Fairly easy to over clock. 45nm. Native dualcore.

Cons: No cons, great value!

Overall Review: The heatsink is small but it does a GOOD JOB for it's size! Doesn't even get too hot when OC'D.

Pros: Very nice glossy look, heat dispersers work well. Too bad I can't actually see the sticks through the case. Bios picked up all of the timing and the correct voltages so I didn't have to set them myself. Easily overclock-able with proper equipment/bios. The sticks themselves came in nice packaging with this plastic film over the heat dispersers to protect the glossy finish. Overall I'm extremely happy with the purchase, I'd recommend this product to anyone looking for this type of ram.

Cons: I have yet to come across something about this ram that I am dis-satisfied with.

Overall Review: Shipping banged up the packaging a bit and there was scratches on one box (I bought 2) but that's not neweggs nor the ram's fault. It's ups's.
