Summary: Got this card for almost a steal at $159.99. My previous build had a gtx 660 sc edition and I got around 40 fps on bf4 ultra settings at 1080p. That card was around $220. I had for a long time been an nvidia fanboy. WOW! This card has opened my eyes to the amd (and gigabyte) graphics world.
Summary: I chose this GPU for my first Gaming Build and i gotta say that this 270X has been great so far. I still havent counter any problems or the infamous coil whine that everyone keeps talking about from GIGABYTE GPU'S.
Good price-to-performance bargain, no problems yet, stays quiet, stays cool

Summary: Temperatures: COOL - This card stays under 50C at all times, and hits a maximum of 50C during heavy gameplay. Stays ridiculously cool. The three fans and heatsinks are way overkill. It stays so cool that the fans are quiet and you can barely hear it.
Summary: The card is really powerful. It can max out many new game such as Bt4. It is almost the same as GTX 760 . So if you are thinking about GTX 760 i would recommend R9 270X because it is cheeper than GTX 760. The cooling system is very good on standby it is about (24-26)C'.
Summary: This card runs any game i throw at it on the highest settings. However it is pretty loud, sometimes it sounds like there is a jet engine in my room. If i were buying a new video card I would definitely get something quieter
