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: Good performance in 2012-2013 games

Not too loud

Very reliable never had a problem with this card

Good temperatures

Over clocks somewhat well

BF3 with medium settings at 1080p 55 avg frames

metro 2033 on medium settings avg 45frames

Shogun Total war high/Medium settings 55-60fps

Heaven benchmark 3.0 with everything maxed out and tesselation on normal 25fps which is dman good for a 3 year old 300$ card.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Man i live my 5850 i have it for 3 years now and i have to say its been the best graphic card i have ever bought never had any issues with it. I have recently purchased a 7970 BE DD from XFX and had to return it a day later because hte manufacturer overclock was crashing every game it was just unstable. That inspired me to write a review about my good old 5850.

XFX Double D FX-797A-TDBC Radeon HD 7970 Black Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Awesome FPS in all game on ultra when works temps aren't bad go up to 80C on full load.

Cons: The card was completely unstable at the manufacturer overclock. Any game that would stress the GPU like BF3 SHogun 2 or Deus X would crash within 5sec-1min and return to desktop with "Display drivers stopped responding" only way i could g et this card to work was to downclock it to original 7970 clocks from 1000/1425 down to 925/1375.

Voltage control is locked on this card.

Fan gets really loud when reaching 80C which is 99% load

Other Thoughts: THe card would be awesome if it was working fine i think ill be getting another one just not sure it will be XFX. The card would get 5 eggs if was working atleast on the manufacturer overclock.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DM005/HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: NONE

Cons: Started Getting Hard Drive Fail message and two days haven't even passed since i installed it.
Speed transfer between my system hard drive and this 1TB one is 70GB/s when performing 1 transfer at a time, when doing two transfers it drops to 24.5 GB/s i find these to be unacceptable speeds being these are the maximum recorded not averages.
Hard Drive was 70gb short which is ridiculous, i know hard drives always come short but 70gb short should just have been called a 900gb hard drive not 1TB since it rounds to 900 not 1000!!

Other Thoughts: Will ship this HDD back to new egg first thing in the morning after i figure out how to go about it.
