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: The card is great i can run all games i have at it's highest settings with little stutter. AMD Control center works like a charm as per usual and is great for multimonitor setup

Cons: The card will crash constantly over the few months i have it and today i have just about had it when it crashed the whole OS. I have installed many versions of the driver and all have had the same issues over and over again it's obvious it's not the driver but the card it's self i just wish the card would run better more stable. I have never overclocked the card as it's barely stable running at stock settings i recommend the card but I would not choose Gigabyte to buy. the card is no out of my case and sitting in it's box as i have instaaled my old graphics cards 5770 crossfire back into my system

Other Thoughts: Iit's disapointing to have such a great card lemon on you in less than a year also i would skip the this card and go for the new R series card AMD has out now or go to Nvidia if you want something in the same price range. hopefully gigbyte customers service is not horrible as i am goign to try and use the service warranty and get a replacement

2 out of 5 eggs Great when it was working 01/25/2011

This review is from: MSI 880GM-E41 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: The board is no thtat bad i bought it mostly becasu eit was the board that fit my case and had no issues what so ever in till...

Cons: One morning i boot up everything is fine and it just froze up. It right in the middle of running and bam it just stopped. I tested the power supply and it was fine, the CPU still works same with the ram. I the only thing i could figure is that the motherboard bit the dust and just stopped working.

Other Thoughts: I personally would say AVOID MSI AT ALL COST this would not be the first time i had one of there products die on me with a very short life span i only had it running for a month and a half when it died out. MSI has also did not respond to my calls or emails i have sen tthem over the past year

This review is from: MSI 880GM-E43 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: The board is a solid piece of PCB board it has all the need's of a performance crazy person in compact package. It has the overclocking if needed, you can Raise and lower the FSB on a whim with the overclocking software along with the fan speed

Cons: The first board i got was DOA and i had to RMA it to Newegg it was no big hassle but for some reason the Serial sticker was removed when i got it.
Also you can't adjust the Clock speed thought the software provided nor the multiplier and if your spu even get get to 60 Celsius it start chirping at you which is gets annoying fast.
