SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X DirectX 12 100361-4L 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Tri-X OC(UEFI) Video Card, New Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Has a metal shroud, this card has construction so solid you almost need two people to lift it

- Three fans keep this card cool and quiet

-The power to play even the most demanding new AAA games.

-Neat blue LED Sapphire logo

Cons: -This card is huge! Make sure you have a lot of space in your case.

-This card gets hot hot hot! The fantastic Tri-X cooler keeps the card itself cool (especially when you consider how hot the reference cards were) but the heat the leaves your case will raise the temperature in your room a bit.

Other Thoughts: This is my first Sapphire card, I've owned Powercolor and Gigabyte cards in the past, and I'm very impressed how much better the build quality of the Sapphire is.

PowerColor TurboDuo Radeon HD 7790 DirectX 11 AX7790 1GBD5-TDH/OC 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought for a budget gaming build for my little brother. He's very happy with the card, says it works great for playing his games.

Cons: I've noticed the fans are a little loud, that doesn't bother my brother, but it might be more noisy than some may like

Other Thoughts: I got this card on sale for less than $100. For the price and performance, I feel it's a pretty great deal, gets you a nice entry card.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7850 DirectX 11 GV-R785OC-1GD 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice looking cooler, great fans

Cons: The card quit working after a few months of use. I contacted Gigabyte and waited a week for a response. When I tried calling their customer service, I was told my two month old card was out of warranty and I would be charged should I RMA the card. Upset, I wrote an email to Gigabyte customer support and received an automated response that did not help. Finally, Gigabyte accepted my card for RMA, and I shipped it to them via priority mail. Now, nearly three weeks later, I have yet to have any updates on the status of my card.

Other Thoughts: I am extremely displeased with the service I have been shown and this treatment has made me unlikely to purchase Gigabyte products in the future.
