Most liked, and least liked GPU’s you’ve owned, and why?

Haven’t owned too many.

Least liked: EVGA GTX 295 SLI. Extremely powerful for the time. (Has early 2010) But even a decade ago, 896mb of memory wasn’t enough. They stuttered and scaled terribly. Biggest waste of $1,100 ever. I also didn’t much care for my later backup GTX 570 1.2gb. ECS flower style cooler. VRM’s didn’t allow voltage changes. Terrible OC ability. Great customer service when it died. Definitely powerful for the time (this was late 2012) but that 1.2gb memory killed it at 1080p. If I got the 2.5gb card, I would of been great. Playing GTA IV and Crysis 2 murdered that card

I LOVED my Radeon HD 7950. (Got on release) twin-X Toxic model. Ran quiet and cool. Overclocked respectabily. 1150mhz core, is 1,650 memory. 1.15V core and stock memory voltage. Absolutely my favorite cards

I also liked my Radeon HD 6870’s in crossfire with a 1,100mhz OC. Reference cards, but wernt obnoxious or particularly hot. Topped out at 71C. Scaled well.

most liked is either my 1080 Ti or my 6800GS. 1080 Ti because it's the fastest card I owned even though it OCs like poo, 6800GS because it was the first card I bought.

don't really have a least favorite. all my crossfire/SLI setups in the past sucked overall but in games where it worked they were fine.

Intel i9 9900K Coffee Lake @ X8 5309mhz (+47.5%)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera @ X4 5022mhz (+43.5%)
Intel i5 4690K Haswell @ X4 5013mhz (+43.2%)
AMD X4 960T Zosma @ X6 4870mhz (+62.3%)
Intel i7 6700 Skylake @ X4 4709mhz (+38.5%)
Intel i5 6400 Skylake @ X4 4588mhz (+69.9%)

Favorite goes to my Sapphire 7970 Dual X OC with the black PCB, did 1315 for benching on air. Also can't help but love my 290X Vapor-X.

I don't really have a least favorite, but my first Reference Fury X was a pain. It had massive coil whine, the pump was super noisy, andddd the Fury I bought shortly after to replace it offered like 95% of the performance.

Also had some serious issues with gen 1 GPU boost for the Nvidia cards, caused a lot of stuttering in certain DX9 Games, worst offender being GW2

Most liked was my 4870X2. I got it for a steal used and it absolutely hauled ass, back when crossfire/SLI actually made a difference.

Least liked was my GTX690, it was horribly VRAM limited and deserved double the VRAM.

Most liked: either r9 280 or 1050ti (almost forgot about my rx 470...was great till I sold it for 3X what I paid)

Least liked: 1060...that card was horrible (hot, loud, washed out colors). I have since replaced it with a rx 580.

Favorite was my GTX 680 2gb. Mine overclocked high and performed in benches between the 1050 Ti and the 1060 3gb. For an old low cost card it had amazing bang for the buck. Only cost me $65.

Worst is my current Gigabyte tri fan R9 270X. It's semi defective and cannot run more than one monitor. Can't overclock at all, and occasionally stops responding and crashes the video driver.

And I had probably 40 7950's without a single one giving me problems. So those I was pretty happy with too.

Skyrim drove me to upgrade my 4650 to a 6850, night and day compared to fighting that 4650 to overclock and run at decent settings, made Skyrim at the time look great even with mods. Maybe the upgrade that made the most difference I can recall.



The "worst" card I bought was a 5450, but it was cheap and all these years later it still works and provides an easier way to have a terminal on an ancient server board than fighting with Matrox drivers.

Favorite: ASUS ARES: The first one. Dual full core/featured HD5870's, epic design and cooling capabilities. Overclocked like an absolute beast, especially under LN2

Least favorite: ASUS HD5870 Matrix. Was a pain to OC, very fickle and time-consuming to clock.
