  1. ^ That is a good buy...but I would have rather spent $12 more and got a faster, bigger Samsung F3 500GB...
  2. Hmmm...you might not want that powercolor in you system.
    Powercolor is cheap with cheap quality.
    5-7 Years ago, I bought different 3 GPUs from Powercolor in the same year and they all got broken in the same year as they bought. 3 of them last less than 1 year.
    That is not a coincidence anymore. 3 times in a row.
    Bad mounted heatsinks, overheating, etc.
    Why don't try to look for HIS, Shappire, ASUS, Gigabyte, XFX, or MSI?
  3. Well, yeah, I guess you did okay for what you bought, why?
