Pros: The card seems to be a good card, but Sapphire forgot to add a driver pkg. for Windows7(32-Bit). I just purchased this card on Jan. 9, 2017 and I was sent a disc that only had the drivers for Windows7 (64-bit) operating system. When I went to the Sapphire website, they only had access for the Windows7 (64-bit) operating system also. This, to me, is useless. Windows 7 (32-bit) operating system doesn't recognize the videocard/graphics card, therefore rendering it useless for that O.S. Is this what Sapphire has evolved into? I certainly hope not, because I've always used their graphics cards in all of my builds.
Cons: Sapphire Technology, the manufacturer of this card, does not have a contact phone number. They want you to go thru a vigorous and senseless online hassle. My question is this: Did they not expect to see this type of feedback once this graphics card hit the market and became popular, or have they hit the, "I just don't give a hoot" level when it comes to their customer database?
Other Thoughts: I really can't say anything that hasn't already been said about this product and Sapphire. I'm sure that the card will perform flawlessly once it is paired with the Windows 10 (64-bit) O.S., but until then, I guess I lose a customer due to there being "no driver pkg." for Windows 7 Pro.(32-bit) O.S. I will work diligently with the customer to try and get them to upgrade to Windows 10 (64-bit) O.S. He has already spent over $ 1,500 on his personal/gaming combo rig, so another $200 shouldn't matter....ya think?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price/Quality. Again.....best memory modules on the planet.
Cons: None....what part of none would you not understand? Corsair doesn't need any cons......they make the best memory on the planet.....PERIOD.
Other Thoughts: Paired 2 red modules @ CAS 8 & 2 black modules @ CAS 8 on an MSI 970A-G46, WD 5000HHTZ VelociRaptor (10k rpm), Sapphire Radeon HD7850(2Gb-256 bit), AMD AthlonII X3 450(3.4GHz tri-core), none of which is overclocked, Windows 7 Professional 64-bit OS. On a rate chart which 7.9 is considered tops, Windows Experience rates the rig 7.3 Not too shabby for a "non-SSD" rig. It's Corsair for me Podnah. I highly recommend the memory modules produced by Corsair to anyone. You get your money's worth here.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price & functionality. Great card for the money. Don't know how well it will overclock, 'cause I have no need for that right now. 2GB/256-bit, GDDR5 on-card memory, 1024 stream processor elements, being supported by AMD, Corsair, Western Digital, MSI Computer, Windows 7 Pro-64.....really...who needs to overclock? There is an overclock version of this card, for those who feel the need, and it's awesome in it's own rights.
Cons: Nobody can keep them in stock. When you pair these with the proper supporting hardware/software, they become awesome performers and Newegg, Tiger-Direct, and some of the other distributors will find themselves scrambling to meet the demand for this card and it's overclocking sibling.READ FULL REVIEW
