Most Critical Review

Artifacting

ASUS Radeon R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R9280X-DC2T-3GD5
ASUS Radeon R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R9280X-DC2T-3GD5

Pros: Graphics Are Good. I'm happy the price dropped back down.

Cons: TERRIBLE artifacting. I was playing Battlefield 4 with Mantle on at 20 fps. And Before you say "Oh you're probably bottle-necking", trust me I'm not, I have an FX 8350. I tried underclocking, it helped for a bit but the artifacting came back, it must have been an overheating problem. I issued for an RMA and I'm getting the GTX 770. If you are having trouble deciding like I did, this is your warning: DO NO GET THIS CARD, FOR FOR THE 770 OR ANYTHING ELSE!. You've been Warned.

Overall Review: Probably needs a recall because when I looked online, there are so much people having trouble. All you have to do is go on YouTube and search "280x Artifacting" just in case you wanted to see it for yourself. Every time I see reviews on a card I usually look for the good ones cause I have been purchasing things on NewEgg for a while, but this is my first bad expereience. I never thought I would ever have a problem, but then again, it's not really NewEgg, it's AMD/ASUS, I haven't come to a conclusion yet. Hardware or bad drivers from AMD?

From a scale from 1 to Watercooling its a 9

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151

Pros: Looks nice, shiny, feels reliable and well made. Fan is quiet.

Cons: Large.

Overall Review: When I looked at it, i thought i would have to return it cause it was so massive. Please take measurements and make sure it'll fit BEFORE you buy it. Otherwise, if it fits, this monster works just as fine as a watercooler.

AMAZING

AMD FX-8320 - FX-8000 Series Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD8320FRHKBOX

Pros: Great CPU

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: 65 degrees C during Battlefield 4. That's probably because I have a stock AMD cooler and overclocked it just a bit.
