Allows Prodigy Case to Keep Hard Drive Cage!
Attn M., Newegg
17 February 2014
Summary: Overall, I was just hoping for a card that I could use three monitors with. I didn't expect to be able to play Batman on crazy high settings or anything (although, it punishes Halo 2 PC settings at maximum with 3 screens). Batman plays at Medium settings at full speed.
Pros: - Powerful - Allows for 3 monitors on ONE card using Eyeinfinity (and a Displayport to HDMI adapter). - Allows the Prodigy Case to retain the Hard Drive Expansion bays due to the AMAZINGLY short form factor of the card.
Cons: No cons. Since the prodigy case comes prepared to install a Mini-ITX, one cannot assume they'll be able to crossfire anything on such a small board. (Unless you had a Mini-ITX board with two PCI-E slots right next to each other, and you used a PCI-E extension to get the 2nd card into a different ...
Wish this was an XFX card. . . AVOID! Last PowerColor I'll own!

Summary: Card wasn't the best card I've owned; however, it was a gift, so I can't complain about the cost and when it worked for the short time it did, it was ok. . . From what I've seen, it's an overpriced paperweight with cheap plastic and no real consumer service backing the poor product!
Pros: If it works, it's fine . . .
Cons: Card just stopped working. . . No display! PC boots, fans spin, num lock key responds and I can boot with other cards. . This one just up and died and it's not even my main PC that gets used daily.
Summary: I'll never buy power color again, utter garbage. Save yourself the time and trouble and just flush your money down the toilet.
Pros: They look neat
Cons: I bought 2 of these for a crossfire rig a year ago. I have had nothing but problems with these. Random crashes, BSOD's and app crashes. I finally figured out that one card sucks more than the other, so I just yanked it out, and now it only crashes every once in a while with just one card. These t...
Summary: dispite updating the BIOS and making sure that the card was properly in place, the build is less than 2 months old, so it wasn't my build the power supply is a corsair HX750, so it's not a failing power supply. once I get a new replacement I will gladly update my review if the new one works.
Pros: From what I've been reading, it's a good card. but I have none at the moment
Cons: The card was DOA, displaying white bars across the screen, then just not displaying after 15 minutes of usage.
Pros: this single-slot card is excellent as a cheap drop-in for anyone who is looking to spice up an older PC for cheap. It can run a heavily modded with HD pack Skyrim at 1080p at ~30fps, quite fantastic in my opinion. The far cry 3 game which it gets bundled with also runs at ~30fps. GTA4, also ~30 f...
Cons: The powercolor fan and heatsink aren't very good. The fan itself is really loud and the heatsink does not actually contact the memory chips - which can be annoying if you want to overclock that memory up from its pitiful 1125mhz.
Summary: I did check for Nvidia equivalents at this price range even though I prefer AMD video cards. While Nvidia may be competitive in the high end market, their midrange and lower end cards aren't even close.
Pros: Paired with a Haswell i5-4670k processor I am able to run all games with their settings maxed out @ 1920x1050. Only game where I wasn't pushing over 60 fps was World of Tanks; which ran at a constant 45 fps. With a Newegg discount and a mail-in rebate, this video card cost me less than a 7750.
Summary: I bought this to replace an ATI 4850 that died after 4 full years. In theory the 460w Dell GPU should not be an issue as the same GPU powered both XPS 8300 and XPS 8500(which sometimes ships with 7770). Additionally the power requirement for 7770 is less than 4850 on paper.
