PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 7850 DirectX 11 AX7850 2GBD5-2DHPP 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -"pcs plus" the extra cooling ability make this clocked 150 megahertz higher than most of the other 7850s so ya...Awesome
-Powerful, it runs almost anything on high settings
-Cool, overclocked it to 1050 and it doesn't go above 140
-Versatile, it has 5 video ports on it, i have three monitors running, all with different resolutions and it works great.

Cons: -RMA on Radeon cards, if you return it after you redeem your games they will only refund you about $80 dollars. I recommend using it for 30 days before redeeming the game codes.

Other Thoughts: Planning to crossfire these by the end of the year.

5 out of 5 eggs one year old, going strong 04/01/2013

This review is from: AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 8-Core 3.1 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD8120FRGUBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Powerful, easy to overclock, with the proper cooling, great for gaming and video editing.

Cons: a lot of applications cant take advantage of 8 cores, but the ones that do run really well. the only thing I would truly say is a con is the stock cooler, its gonna be the same with any powerful processor, it will run hot and be loud. I would recommend a third party one.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6570 DirectX 11 GV-R657OC-1GI 1GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -single slot thickness makes it easy to install
-runs most games fine up to 2012
-moh warfighter med settings 40-60 fps
-minecraft on fancy 120 fps unlocked
-assassins creed revelations and III on med settings 25-32 fps
-portal 2 45-60 fps
-tomb raider med settings 25 fps

Cons: -the 6000 series is getting old
-Slender: the arrival is choppy 11 -24 fps
-cant optimize adobe premier's new engine
-some other applications cant recognize Amnesia, but run fine
-overclocking seems to do nothing
-if you want to run anything that's coming out this year on decent settings, get a 7700 - 7900 card

Other Thoughts: RIG:

amd fx 8120 eight core processor OC to 3.35 GHTZ

12 GB of Vengeance ram

5200 RPM hard drive

Upgrading this card to a 7850 for $220
