XFX Radeon HD 5850 DirectX 11 HD-585X-ZAFC 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: None - unfortunately it took me almost a year to realize it's defective.

Cons: Had problems with the card since day one - always thinking it was memory timings or other voltage issues that was causing the blue screens or freezes of the PC. I had a friend that I game with tell me to check DirectX and I finally saw that it's only operating with 753MB instead of the full 1024MB ( 1 gig ). Tells me that the card never was operating at peak efficiency and likely the card was bad from the beginning. I'm now dealing with XFX to get some support but having to wait over a WEEK to get a response is horrible. At this rate I will not buy another XFX and possibly not go through Newegg for the bad card shipped out.

Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model 996768

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: None - Original order and RMA'd sticks problematic.

Cons: Constant freezing of my system - I even submitted my motherboard for warranty replacement after receiving the replacement stick thinking there's no way I'd receive 2 sets of bad memory. Not so - got the replacement motherboard which took long enough that I can't even return these worthless sticks of RAM now since it's past the 30 day cut-off point ( 4/30 ). So now I'm out the money for this and cannot even return these for replacement or reimbursement.

Other Thoughts: Really not happy with Mushkin at this point - probably will not buy again. If matching timing/voltage sticks can't even work together from Mushkin there's problems.
