GIGABYTE Radeon R9 280X GV-R928XOC-3GD REV2 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I've been scrypt mining for a while now and own a bunch of different cards. This is by far the best card I've bought yet. So simple to plug in, hone and mine. I have had no problems and no concerns. The three fans run silent, it's a nice design and the cards stay cool (<=72 C°).

Cons: None that I have seen yet.

Other Thoughts: I have tried several other 280X brands available on Newegg and this is the card you want, hands down.

EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 1500 Classified 80 PLUS GOLD Certified 1500W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Full Modular PSU 5 Year Warranty 120-PG-1500-VR NEW 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready Power Supply

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Got the PSU for a decent price considering the wattage.

Cons: Connecting the graphics cards didn't work initially.

Other Thoughts: I tried several times, several different cards and several different slots on my mobo but to my surprise, the graphics cards were failing to be recognized. I contacted EVGA tech support and they were super helpful. They even gave me the advice I needed to make the graphics cards work properly with the mobo. None of those items other than the PSU were their products. I will purchase EVGA again.

Thermaltake Toughpower XT TPX-1275M 1275W ATX 12V 2.3 & SSI EPS 12V 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs most hardware well. Good semi-modular design.

Cons: Difficulty with video cards. See below.

Other Thoughts: I use this power supply for a mining rig. I have only 3 7950 ATI video cards. Nothing fancy, just a simple SSD, RAM, MB, PSU, 3 GPUs and a CPU. 1275 W should be more than sufficient to run all of the hardware. I tried to OC my GPUs and they fail. The PSU can't provide enough power to the cards to support the OCing. This is a major problem! If you have some demanding applications, do NOT go with this PSU.
