OCZ Vertex 2 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Is a tiny bit speedier in real life applications than my velociraptors.

Cons: Doesn't perform to advertised speeds. I get 250 reads but only 80 writes with latest firmware. I am reading they made a change? Shame. Sending it back.

Pros: Great card. I am coming from 3 GTX-285s and two of these in cross fire beats them in my game, crysis. I am running warhead on enthusiast settings with 4xaa and averaging 55FPS. Finally, enjoyable game play from crysis. The 5870 is clearly the best bang for the buck right now.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: Zeek the geek is an idiot fanboy who is lying about his tech level. If his card performed the way he describes, its user error, not the card.

ASUS Radeon HD 4870 X2 DirectX 10.1 EAH4870X2/HTDI/2G/A 2GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: I have to post another update, because I have found that a bios update that I did just before installing this card messed a lot of things up. I have been having a lot of problems the last few days involving this card and other things. Naturally, I assumed it was all drivers. Well I just decided to roll back to a previous BIOS and everything is perfect again. I also noticed that the temperatures that were reported by the other BIOS were 10 degrees, on average, higher than the BIOS I am on now. So right now, this card is idling 12 degrees cooler than the sapphire I had with the same fan setting in CCC. I ran some quick tests and I saw the same results, about 10 degrees lower in all cases.

Cons: None.
