VisionTek Radeon HD 7850 DirectX 11 900505 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price, power, ability for Eyefinity, 2GB card. It runs like a champ for the past 2 months. Running 3 23" IPS monitors with eyefinity is absolutely the best setup for office work and gaming.

Cons: No real cons, but running Sleeping Dogs with Highest setting with the eyefinity setup was a disappointing. Had to lower the setting to medium for it to be playable.

Other Thoughts: Currently as of this writing, the 7850 and 7950 are at a great price point for the performance you get.

Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT25664AA80A

Pros: Excellent memory for gaming.
Top ranked by Tomshardware.
fastest timings when overclocked

Cons: Very suceptible to not working!?!?!

Other Thoughts: I had bought these and placed them into my ASRock motherboard and it worked. I then removed them and put them in as dual channel mode and it wouldnt post.
Later I figured out, it was not the memory's issue, but the motherboard had fried the stick I put into the 2nd channel. I tested again with another set of memory i had and killed the 2nd stick in the 2nd channel. So my other machine is down 1 gb of memory =(

C'est La Vie .. Thank goodness memory is cheap now! Thanks to NewEgg for the quick replacement!

4 out of 5 eggs DOA? 08/26/2009

This review is from: ASRock P45XE LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Good value, good reviews from Toms hardware, lots of features for overclockers. Good performance #'s

Cons: The 2nd channel on dual channel memory slots were killing any memory I put into it.
Unfortunately it was the only way I was able to figure out why the pc wasnt posting. It was just power cycling over and over.

Other Thoughts: Replacement motherboard is on the way. NewEgg is pretty good about replacement units and fairly quick at getting it out to me. Local distribution point is in Edison, NJ and Im in NYC.
if I have another bad motherboard, I'll have to look for another one that has these great features and performance.
