Summary: Hello, when I first bought my PC it had a very bad GPU and a bad AMD APU and this was when I knew hardly anything about PCs but after many, many, and many benchmark videos seeing this card play BF3 on ultra and all types of other newer games (new at the time of purchase) I was sold. Although when I got the card I wasn't seeing any noticeably good performance out of it. I then found out my APU was bottlenecking the card, and I mean BAD.
Summary: I'm using this with a FX-6300, and they pair up nicely. The drivers are fairly solid at this point in time. Looks good, works good, and the cooler works, but isn't amazing. Pros: + Price (When I got it) + Effective cooling + Easy to overclock + Rock solid at stock + WILL play BF4 at ultra, but don't use mantel (At time of writing) + Low power consumption + Only uses a single 6x PCIE power connector Cons: - The cooler gets pretty loud when it ramps up, but I have it set...
Summary: So far it's a great video card. I have no problems with it but I would recommend you upgrade your motherboard if its old even if you think its compatible as this may case some unwanted random crashes, nothing to be worried about just kind of annoying when you're trying to get things done.
Summary: This card was a super tight fit into my case, but eventually I coaxed it into place. Make sure not to install the drivers on the CD in the box, they caused frequent crashes. With the most updated drivers I'm seeing a solid 70+ FPS on full settings from Battlefield 3 and 4. Runs cool and consistent. Somewhat noisy, but not bad overall.
Summary: Asus is a great company. LOVE THEM. AMD is at fault here. They didnt complete the Chipset or what say you. I recommend Nvidia from Asus but avoid AMD in general. This card is great though its a cheap replacement until I can get a 790 or Next Gen Titan.
Summary: Ok I have had a lot of video cards in my life but this asus vid card rocks, im not going to get into a lot of details all I can say is that it runs great just make sure you have an updated mother board to run all of its features..
