GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7970 DirectX 11 GV-R797OC-3GD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, Fast, Fast!

Cons: Crashes every half hour or so playing Guild Wars 2. I get an Event Viewer message "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered". Tried several driver revisions, adjusted luck.

Other Thoughts: Seems to be a common problem.

GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P(rev 5.1) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's small.

Cons: Have multiple instances of this mobo refusing to boot...I have to keep resetting it, turning it on and off. It beeps once, then does nothing, and will start every 3-4 times. I flashed the BIOS which seemed to reduce the frequency a it boots maybe once in every three starts.

Other Thoughts: I realize this is a budget board...I bought this as part of a combo with case, proc, RAM and HD. HD was dead on arrival. Seriously disappointed with this purchase, yet I love Newegg.
