XFX Radeon HD 6970 DirectX 11 HD-697A-CNFC 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: These cards have +400 stream processors over the 6870 series, add that to a completely new architecture with dual graphics engines, allows this card to be one of the best on the market.

Cons: With the new addition to the metal back plate, those who get the cards for tri-fire/quad-fire may notice some extra heating issues.
High power consumption, upto 300 watts per card.

Other Thoughts: I was very disappointed when i bought my two 6870's in both performance and the strange 8pin/8pin connection rather than the 8pin/6pin as well as the cards only have ports for to cards in crossfire instead of 3 or four. One week after i bought my 6870's newegg decides to drop the price 50 bucks per card to make room for the 6970's so i returned the old ones for a credit and bought new ones.

I get about 600-630 on Unigine Heaven Benchmark with 64 fps max and 29 average on extreme and everything maxed at 1920x1200 per card.

SAMSUNG MD230X3 Black 23
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small bezel, allows for minimal breaks in the images between monitors. Comes with a very sturdy nice quality stand. Hinges are sturdy and allow you to change your viewing angle up to about 35 degrees.

Great cord organization, cables daisy-chain from one monitor to another as for use and power, limiting cable mess.

The remote is a great idea, allowing you to individually control each monitor or all of them at the same time. It's removable so you can get rid of it once everything is configured.

Cons: These monitors are nice but their not quality for the price. They are 8ms so there is some, but very little ghosting in some games. You will not notice it if have been playing for a little while.

Most games do not support the landscape resolution, so you will want the monitors in portrait, which the bezels on the top and bottom are slightly bigger than the sides.

It seems that the images do not completely reach the edge of the screen to the bezel, it's almost as there are about 5 pixels from each side that are black(not dead pixels), however intentionally left there. - I was very tired i may be wrong about this

-See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Not worth the price, these would have to be 35% less to even be somewhat reasonable.

After the pros vs cons, I will not return them to newegg because i bought them fulling agreeing to the outrageous costs. However you could easily buy bigger monitors, probably 27 inches(from what i looked at) and still save 600 bucks.

In order to play games on even moderate settings you will need a fairly powerful card. I have two XFX 6970's and my monitors are setup in 3240 x 1920 in potrait, my fps in wow with all settings on high with 16xAnisotropic filtering and 8xAntiAliasing, my ftp tops at 65 to 70. usually in the 50's.

Accell B112B-001B Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort Adapter Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None

Cons: I bought three of these to use with my samsung MD230x3 monitors. They work, but they create scanning lines across the monitor, almost as if you can see the refresh rate. I have tried with all 3 monitors, and tried different display port adapters(i bought three) and even display port cords. All of which failed. Clearly a case of false advertising.

Other Thoughts: ATI/AMD should remove this product from their "Supported Adapters" site. Never will i buy anything from accell again.
