Summary: Bought it used for about 50% off a few months ago, but is still working and has been an awesome video card! I am an avid gamer and if this is paired with a high quality processor the results are spectacular!
Summary: This card is rubbish for the current times... I would RMA it if I could but I had it for far too long trying to see if I could fix some of the problems but its a card issue from all the research I have done... save your hard earned cash and move along!
Pros: Decent FPS on most modern games.
Cons: Random Pixilation Locks up the entire system and force reboots Random Black screens BSOD can happen out of nowhere!!! Poor overclocking... cant hold it for long before Pixilation happens. If you play World of Warcraft don't buy this card!!! Cant play battlefield for long!!!!
Pros: Great card for the price. It plays games like League of Legends on highest settings @1080p @144fps. Does WoW everything on high 1080@60fps constant. Good for a child's pc and or a gift for a cheap home theater pc.
Cons: Fans get loud when they ramp up so be sure you have good case airflow.
Summary: I have had good luck with Gigabyte products in the past and they honored the warranty but it took a month and a half to receive the same card I shipped them. In the meantime I ordered another card because I wanted my wife to have a working PC for Christmas and assumed I would just put them into...
Pros: Seems like it could be a good card when it works
Cons: Won't work in crossfire mode. First card failed within 8 months of super light use.
Pros: Been gaming pretty heavily with this, and quite pleased. Only one negative issue, which I was able to fix (see below).
Cons: The issue I had though is my entire computer would freeze, and I traced the problem to this graphics card...it was overheating, and would lock up to cool itself. Perhaps some light dust caused it to overheat after a few months, but I noticed the fan was stuck at 40%. I adjusted it to 50%, and now...
Pros: Exceeded my expectations by a great margin. As of this review 2014 all of my games including recent ones stay at very playable framerates set on highest settings with the resolution set to 720p. The drivers from AMD where easy to install on windows 8.1 x64, I already had a AMD apu so it was ready...
Cons: I recommend setting a manual profile for automatic fan control (stays at around 130F on default under load), also on high demand games disabling the GPU governor or setting it to performance settings. The clock scaling is in much the same woeful state as the fan control.
