Summary: I've always had a glitch or two here and there with ATI video cards, but you never know what the exact problem is. The only real problem I've been experiencing with this one has to do with my three-monitor setup. It very well might be a Windows 8 issue, so I can't knock off anything for that. I'm not in love with the new CCC three-monitor controls either, but it works well enough. I can play my FSX with full settings in surround video perfectly.
Summary: Two weeks now playing with the 270x and it is an amazing video card for a nice price.... its a big video card, so i recommend check out your internal space. On desktop runs cold and quiet, 29ºc and no noise. When I'm playing Bf4 ultra setting it goes 45ºc max. I do recommend this gigabyte card for every gaming player.
Summary: I bought this card after the price drop haha. Works perfectly in my mITX build (which has 430watts, yikes!) So far it has been performing smoothly and I haven't seen it get to hot (GPU wise). Fits in the Raven RVZ01 mITX case. Recommended to anyone upgrading from lower cards or anyone new to PC Gaming. Other than the card itself. Gigabyte's packaging was nicely done. Does not come with a GPU sticker in case anyone was wondering.
Summary: Perfect card for my 5 year old rig! I'm running an old Core i7-920 DO @ 3.5GHz, 6GB RAM and a Corsair 128MB SSD as my Win 8.1 boot drive. I replaced my Crossfired HD 4890's for this card and couldn't be happier. It's faster than my Crossfired 4890's in every game so far. I play Titanfall, Crysis 3, Wolfenstein New Order and soon Watch Dogs.
Summary: > My thoughts This R9 270x is well worth my $206 spent. I thought of the Powercolor Devil version, and the Sapphire Toxic edition, but they were priced at $230 and $250 respectively. The Asus DirectCU II version performs similarly, but the plate that holds the fans and covers the heat sinks did not fully cover the PCB , making it look a little awkward. You may have a different opinion though. > What about the other R9 270x -es ?
