Is that a good card?

Most versions of a card that have a "name" associated with them are a premium version of that model.


It's finally here! My Silverstone sleeved cable is here! Woo! I expected paracord. It is not, it's actually very cloth-like. Much nicer in my opinion.

Anyway, pic time. I got solid red for Kaveri;



And black with red streaks for Forge;




Oh ya, and I got some COUGAR Vortex fans for my rad. My comp is silent now.

I oversee the 280x/270x thread and from the info I have gathered the Hawk is a beast compared to the DCUII Top. Just what I have seen there I have only experience with the Devil 270x.

They dont compare them tongue.gif

Im just asking for your opinion, since you are quite a "reconized" member here.

You can still compare average temp or other differences such as clock speed, power draw, and aesthetics pretty easily.

I pay more attention to top-end cards, but even then I don't really care about the specific card (unless it's a Lightning) as much as I do about what cooler it has on it and what company is going to be backing the warranty. Besides that, I'm more suited to awnsering questions about the differences between, say, a 290X and a 7950 then I am about specific models of each type.

For the most part, it comes down to what brand you trust, what you can afford, and if you like what it looks like. All of these things are subjective.

Also it's worth noting that I don't actually overclock GPUs. If I had a need for more power, I'll always go the more-cores route. It's clock speed that requires more voltage, not the number of cores, and unlike cores heat increase is much higher than linear with clock speed. I can downclock my 290X to 900Mhz, reduce voltage from 1.175v to 1.0v, and have the card top out at 63C with 44% fan speed, and drawing way less power than normal. As a result, I don't really pay attention to OC ability when it comes to GPUs.

I read some personal reviews and both had some negative reviews. MSI for some Fan issues, grease and what not. ASUS was for Black screens. Both of these in 280X or 270X cant remember.

Well, I'm feeling kinda genorous today and i have a couple of game codes laying about that i don't really need.

First is for The Lego Movie: Videogame (Yes that's actually the title)

And the second is a code for BF4 that i've had laying about for quite some time waiting for a friend to claim it.

Now i'm thinking we could have a little contest or a quiz but my mind is blank, so if someone can come up with something then go right ahead smile.gif
