SYBA Connectland CL-CM-5023 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset with Microphone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Decent sound quality for games.
Good mic quality for the price.
Good price.

Cons: It hurts the ears (makes them sore) after a few hours of wear.
No in-line volume control.

Other Thoughts: Given my expectations for this headset, in general it surpassed them. The sound quality is above average, and the mic is way above average. The wear issues I considered and decided it was not a huge deal as I only use them a few hours a night, and I knew beforehand that it did not have a volume control in-line. I do hope that I get used to them though, as my ears stay sore throughout the day. I figure in a week I'll either consider a new set because of the discomfort, or I'll be used to them and my ears will harden up. I personally figure the later will come true.

HIS Radeon HD 7790 DirectX 11 H779F1GD 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Supports at least 4 monitors (4 is all I run).
Runs very quiet (my case fans are louder).
Price is decent to good.
Free game.

Cons: This is no longer top of the line, hence the lower/decent price.
The cooler is longer than others (about 1/4 of an inch) making it a tight fit on smaller cases. (I personally had to move my hard drive)
The free game is a Steam download :(

Other Thoughts: This was an upgrade from a HIS HD 5590. After five almost six years the fan went out on that card causing it to overheat. Yes this is a PCI-E 3.0 x16 card and the motherboard only had the original PCI-E (1.0) x16 slot, but it works fine. In fact it is a great improvement in terms of quality, and video processing power. I play a game called EVE Online, and I would often run 4 copies of the game at the same time. With the old card there was a little lag doing that on max settings. With more than 4 copies running it was unplayable. With this card there is no lag running 6 copies of the game on max settings (I only have 6 accounts so I cannot test it further, but I would surmise about an 8 account cap based on cpu/ram usage).

HIS in general is a great brand name in my opinion. I personally have preferred this brand over others for many years now, and have never had a card fail on me in less than four years. Additionally I repair computers for a living and have found next to none of the bad video cards with the HIS brand name. There are other brands that I will not mention that I see much more often.

Currently I run a five almost six year old personal built computer with an AMD Phenom X4 9850, 8 GB of RAM, and 4x Dell ST2320L 23in widescreen monitors at 1920x1080 resolution. Yes it goes higher, but my eyesight is not what it used to be. I personally am planing to upgrade my computer by the end of the year, and this video card is the second piece I bought out of necessity. The monitors were the first pieces I bought, and ironically they were also out of necessity.

Overall this is a great video card that has given my old pc new life.
