Has some problems

Kevin W., Newegg
26 September 2015
  • Pros: Price performance was good when I bought it
  • Cons: After about 1 yr, the card died and I RMA'd it. The replacement also died after about 1yr. I did not overclock the card, and will probably steer clear of Gigabyte GFX cards in the future.

Great Card

Chad M., Newegg
4 September 2013
  • Summary: It was larger than I expected and with a mini-atx setup is barely fits in my case and comes right up next to my hard drive. If you get this to SLI or Crossfire you're going ot need a bigger boat.
  • Pros: This lasted me three years and was able to play any game on high or ultra settings. Couldn't hear it the whole time, nice and silent.
  • Cons: After three years and a week it decided to die on me, but for what I payed for it, it was well worth it.

Astonishing

Daniel W., Newegg
23 October 2012
  • Summary: I still have it and I still use it one day I will upgrade but i don't think this card will have lost it's gaming power at all. Sure there are better cards out there now but why buy a new one when the old one still plays all the top lvl games?
  • Pros: I did a lot of research at the time I bought this card Spent 3 days I think just looking up cards which one was better, which card was more expensive, why, who, where, lol. What I ended up on was this card it was without a doubt at the time the best card for 200 dollars that money could buy accor...
  • Cons: None that I can really think of I kinda wish I had bought two at the time but I didn't have the money. Oh I guess it's size is a con, some motherboards just can't accommodate the video card's girth.

Blue screens every 10-15 minutes

Russell C., Newegg
10 July 2012
  • Summary: Used to love the Radeon HD series' but this card has turned me away.
  • Pros: Good quality video when it works.
  • Cons: Every 10-15 minutes while playing a game (has done this on multiple games) it will bluescreen and cause a restart. It will also do it during normal computer use but less frequently than when gaming. I have tried the most up-to-date drivers and have used older "stable" drivers.

  • Cons: Driver issues from the get go. Unstable drivers and crashing whenever I upgrade to the newest driver. Most importanly tho, issues with dual monitors. Whenever a second monitor is plugged in, screen tearing whenever I scroll and resize windows etc.

Crashes when streaming video

Kevin S., Newegg
31 August 2011
  • Summary: I've had this card for 4 months. I have it hooked up to my HDTV as a media center/gaming computer. It handles midrange video quality well enough, but streaming in HD or low quality seems to crash the computer after about 30 mins, and once it crashes once, the next crashes come in sooner and sooner...
  • Pros: Runs quiet Fairly stable when gaming HDMI port
  • Cons: Crashes when streaming video AMD software overclocking doesn't amount to much

So many problems...

Lorenzo T., Newegg
31 August 2011
  • Pros: When it runs it handles everything like a champ. High framerates and no stutters or anything.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, 4/5 times it will have severe issues and will crash whatever I'm doing. In this case there is severe artifacting, black screen, game freezing, and deadlining framerates. Not to mention that right out of the box I was unable to use my second monitor, due to the fact that when both m...
