G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10D-8GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Fast, reliable, pretty

Cons: Not plug and play at rated speed. Currently only able to maintain 1866Mhz. I tried setting all manual timings and advanced timings and still BSOD shortly after starting.

Other Thoughts: More detailed instruction need to be included on how to achieve rated speeds if they are not plug and play.

XFX Double D Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition DirectX 11 FX797GTDFC 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, reliable, decent price, pretty, mid-range quiet level, takes whatever I throw at it game wise.

Cons: Frequency oscillation causes notable shudder in game when switch frequencies due to card load.

I created a how-to to force the card to move to and stay in one freq setup, (2D, 3D) on command and then go back when done.

XFX support department sucks. They just stopped helping me when they changed their site. Went off and made a solution to the oscillating problem myself.

Other Thoughts: Very loud buzz when running it 60% or more. Changed depending on how many shadows you have on the screen and how much. It's an attribute of the components they used, (caps and such). Not very bad but annoys some. Locked voltage, but I guess that keeps these alive. Even at the stock locked voltage of 1.213V I managed to get this cad to run at 1185Mhz Core and 1575 Memory. An alternative clock is 1120Mhz Core and 1600Mhz Memory. It's all in what runs your games better.
