HIS IceQ Radeon HD 6970 DirectX 11 H697QM2G2M 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet, cool

~60 FPS on BF3 with mixed settings.


Cons: Driver issues with Skyrim (not specific to this card, to ATI)

Other Thoughts: This card made be happy after coming from a dreadful GIGABYTE 560ti with dreadful support. This edged out its performance slightly, with much more stability.

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2682-KR GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Smaller than previous card (see other thoughts).

Take less power than pervious card (see other thoughts).

Went from ~60 fps in BF3 with mixed settings to 80+ fps all the settings way up.

Cons: absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: Went to this from a HIS IceQ H697QM2G2M Radeon HD 6970 2GB.

CORSAIR HX Series HX850 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Exellent amperages, good wattage.

Cons: Partially modular.

Other Thoughts: Modular cabling is solid plastic, not the cool looking mesh wrapped bundles. At first I thought "this is cheap". Reality is it made the cabling thinner and easier ro route.
