DIAMOND Radeon HD 6770 DirectX 11 6770PE51GB 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Low cost, brilliant performance. Sure, it's last generation, but it's still a wonderful card, especially for gamers on a budget.

Cons: None that I've found so far.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to completely uninstall your old drivers before moving up to this card. I failed to follow this most basic of precautions, and spent a lovely 20 minutes working around machine hangs until I got the drivers sorted. It took my video rating in Win7 x64 from 5.2 to 7.1, and Skyrim from the lowest settings to Ultra with no problems whatsoever. I was so stunned by the difference, I couldn't believe I was playing the same game!

Physically, this is a substantially sized card, so be sure to measure your case for fit. The tolerances are so narrow in my stock HP case, I'll have to remove this card if I want to upgrade my ram, since the ram catches don't have enough room to release.

4 out of 5 eggs Inauspicious start... 02/13/2012

This review is from: Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2DB 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: Low cost, plenty of plugs, two PCI-e plugs.

Cons: The sata power plugs seem to be made of really thin, cheap plastic and appear unnecessarily fragile. The rest of the plugs appeared fine.

Other Thoughts: I'm on my second unit as the first was unusable at arrival due to three of the four SATA plugs being broken when I pulled it out of the box. One of the plugs on this second unit appeared to have a hairline fracture in it, but plugged in okay and seems to be holding. I had to get a little creative with my stock HP case to ensure the plugs had minimal to no stress on them, as I didn't want them getting weak and breaking over time. Just something to be aware of if upgrading a stock unit or working in a case with tight corners.
