GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 GV-R787OC-2GD 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: This card runs extremely cool, never exceeds 60c in my system. Runs all of my games at near ultra settings.

Cons: This card worked great as first, but as time has went on (only a month) the card is starting to show more signs of artifacting. It only does it for me after 1-3 hours of games, but it is almost guaranteed to happen. A little disappointed, as now I should probably RMA, before it gets worse.

Other Thoughts: Wonderful card, great overclocking ability, if you get a good one. I don't think the problem lies with Gigabyte, I believe it lies with the 7870 from AMD, as I have seen this same issue reported on other reputable manufacturers of this card.

Pros: This kit of memory is great! I bought my kit in 2010, and it's still running strong! For those saying it cannot be overclocked, I'm not sure what you're doing wrong, but it OC's great for me. I bumped up the voltage to 1.66v, (my system doesn't have 1.65v option), left timings on auto (9-9-9-24, the default was chosen by my mobo), and have overclocked my i7-920 from 2.6ghz (stock) to 4.0ghz (I also increased other voltages, such as vcore and qpi to get here, of course) with this memory. It performs flawlessly, with no blue screens. The memory speed is currently at 1700 mhz, but I have had it as high as 1800 mhz, depending on the current OC.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Great memory kit, reliable, moderate overclocking ability, great support from G.Skill. Highly recommend, if the price is still right.
