HIS Radeon HD 7970 DirectX 11 H797F3G2M 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Card will slaughter anything I throw at it. Been playing Crysis 3 MP on ultra with 2x MSAA for weeks. It is absolutely a beast and for $399 it is 100% worth it. I paid $549 for mine a year and a half ago.

Cons: My original purchase review was 1 egg because of the error message I was getting anytime I was using my computer. A few months down the road after several new driver releases this has been fixed. I never contacted support I just kept installing every new driver release until it was fixed. Docked one egg because I run a dual-monitor setup and switch out my main monitor to play xbox 360 on since my monitor has 1 hdmi slot only and for some reason this freezes my computer anytime that the monitors go into low power mode. Also watching mkv files or mp4 or anything similar I get a frame rate drop for a few seconds uaing both Zoom and GOM player. Still great for gaming especially at $399!

Other Thoughts: Annoying fps drops every once in awhile and computer hangs inconsistently when swapping hdmi cable from main display to xbox360.

Pros: The hardware, HIS digital and performance...all worth the price tag. Max out every game yada yada however see below.

Cons: So I had a HIS 5850, freakin loved it...nothing wrong with it it works perfectly. So just to get an upgrade and blast out everything coming out on max I decide to buy this card.
The card and hardware are great but there is one big fat con. The system doesnt work, I have googled, searched, lurked, burked, and perked, I absolutely cannot for the life of the grace of removed* figure what the explicit deleted is the deal. It will freeze up at absolute random times (loading up a game in SC2, after a fresh reboot, just surfing the web with no 3d apps open, and etc)
BSOD ensues and its the same message everytime.
atikmpag.sys has caused a failure and u need to blah blah blah, no one on this planet knows what to do.
I used driver sweeper and installed and uninstalled about 10 different versions of the AMD drivers, absolutely nothing fixes this issue. Its so sad I've been using AMD since 2004, but after this 549$ blow to my wallet to which im sure there wont be a refund. I will be going nvi

Other Thoughts: For the rest of my life, this is absolutely unacceptable and Im betting its an AMD problem not a HIS digital problem (my HIS 5850 worked perfectly for 2 years straight not 1 issue)
Fix your exp deleted AMD or your going to loose all of your customers to Intel/Nvidia like me. Ye be warned folks!

LG E2350VR-SN 23

Pros: Its a great monitor in design, has great blacks and colors and all that jazz. Big screen, seriously LG had a great design idea...however

Cons: After owning it a couple of months and taking perfect care of it, only moving it 3 times in box all 3 times. It now has this dark grey spot in the top right for no reason at all and makes the screen go super grey randomly and I absolutely cant do anything about it but buy a new monitor.

Its extremely disappointing I spent 250$ on this at the time around Jan. and it a few months back it started doing this. I did all my homework and saw no issues related to this but I am one of those people with horrendously bad luck too. Dont buy this go with another model and for sakes get a warranty. :)

Other Thoughts: Not worth any amount of money as its useless to me now.
