Summary: It is an okay card. You won't be getting ultra settings on much with it being only 128bit. But for light gaming and those who don't care about ultra graphics then this card is fine. Rather large in size for its lower end performance. Will be great for a budget builder, especially if you pick up a used one (like I did). I run it in my wife's computer with no big issues.
Summary: I use this as one of the main video cards for building computers. The GPU is very strong. FPS: I get 60 easily. On LoL I can get up to 180 fps. I have tried overheating it and it took my awhile but finally did it after running heavy programs. Any questions? Ask away!
Summary: I build custom computers, I've bought two of these this month mainly because they are on sale ($150) and installed them into budget gaming rigs ($500 and $700 budgets) and they perform beautifully. Smoothly play all main MMORPG's, Intensive FPS, and Hi-Def movies with the graphics maxed out and doesn't even heat up. For less geeky people, this is essentially a tiny, advanced computer (Ram+Processor), that's dedicated to only graphics.
Summary: Best bang for the buck without jumping up to the R9 series. Installed with no problems and has performed like a champ. Running it with a AMD FX-6300 on an Asus board(970 chipset) with 8G of 2133 G-skill Ripjaw. It runs Diablo 3 on ultra with no lag and great frame rates.
Summary: This card heats up really easily and weird things show up or go missing on-screen. I even tried switching the thermal compound to Arctic Silver 5. That only helped a little bit. As a last ditch effort, I underclocked the card and it seems to work much better. I don't think it's this card only either, but all cards that have been too overclocked.
Summary: This card heats up too easily. I even switched out the thermal compound to Arctic Silver 5. It only helped a little bit. My only option was to underclock the GPU clock a bit. Only then did it work without overheating. (I was using Catalyst 13.12; the latest at the time of this review.
Summary: I have a system I built running Ubuntu with multiple monitors, occasional gaming. I use it as a media server and office machine mostly and it runs literally 24/7. The card has good cooling capacity and runs smoothly. Only downside was that I bought this only a couple weeks before the 265 came out. That was frustrating. But I should't be because this one does what I want it to do. They did also drop the price on this card, after I bought it.
