SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X Radeon R9 290 DirectX 11.2 100362VXSR 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support TRI-X OC (UEFI) Video Card

Pros: Great card for gaming! Replaced (2x) Sapphire HD7870's. Love not having to screw with CrossFire anymore. Ran everything I own on ultra.

Cons: Random black screen of death while not gaming. Seemed like if I kept the card under a load, it ran fine, but if I was surfing the internets or just working from my desktop the screen would go black and I would have to reboot.

Other Thoughts: An RMA was issued. I have had a few RMA's in the past and NewEgg was always great to work with. I will revisit this review when I get another card and see if I have the same issues.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 100354OC-2L 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Easy to install, comes with extra power cables and CrossfireX bridge. So far these bad boys will run everything I throw at it on Ultra.(I bought 2) I have bought Sapphire in the past and so far I haven't been disappointed.

Cons: Woke up this morning to a black screen (and no my monitor was not asleep because I could still see my mouse). Pressed a key on my keyboard and it popped back on. More to follow.

Other Thoughts: I bought these cards as part of a total rebuild for my machine. They are a hell of an upgrade from my old A8-5600K + HD6670 combo.

Rosewill 5.1-Channel Vibrating Gaming Headset- USB Connector - RHTS-8206

Pros: Great sound, vibrate feature is pretty cool, mic sounds great.

Cons: I reviewed this awhile back before I really got a chance to use this headset for intense gaming. Using a mumble server my friends noticed a LOT of feedback when I had my vibrate function on. Due to this I stopped using the vibrate all together.

Other Thoughts: For solo gaming or music these are really great, but if your using a chat server don't bother with vibrate if you want to keep your friends ears intact.
