Summary: I have a client that has nothing but WOW on his PC. Installing this along with a Samsung EVO 250GB just shot him into blazing speed. You can't go wrong with this card for the price. If you want to drop $300+ on a video card go for it, email me and buy me one since you're willing to dump money in something that will be outdated in six months, but I can bet this card will still out do those higher priced ones.
Summary: Just install it, download driver (or install from cd rom) and done. I'll be testing it on BF 4 in a couple weeks. Smooth and Silent behavior. Couldn't be happier. I bought this as an upgrade from a Gigabyte 7870. It is better but not waay better. Nevertheless it is cheaper and it worth the replacement.
Summary: I bought two of these for alternate coin mining purposes and they each generate 485 khash/s stable between 55-65 Celcius. Granted I have a box fan blowing at them but they run pretty cool compared to 80-85 Celcius on my R9 290!
Summary: You will not be disappointed with the performance of this GPU at 1080p and 1200p. Some games will run fine with Ultra settings enabled and if not then the GPU can run mid-high to high settings with good frame rates. Two six pin PCI-e power connectors are required to get the 270X up and running and three fans keep the GPU cool while gaming. Two of the cards would be a contenders for crossfire gaming above 1080p or in multi-display setups.
Summary: Completely satisfied with this purchase. Took the place of 2 AMD HD 4890's in X-fire configuration and out performs them in every way. Will look to purchasing another of these graphics cards to run in X-fire configuration. The price has gone up, but, I am willing to pay the higher price just to make sure that I get complete compatibility.
Summary: Was looking for an upgrade to my graphics card, this one works as intended & was cheaper than other cards with similar specs. It's pretty big, though & (fair warning) overlaps just a bit into the drive bay space in my smallish case due to the placement it needed on my motherboard. This was easily fixed by rearranging the drive docks to leave a large empty space for the last inch of the graphics card to exist in. It stays cool because of all of the fans on it.
Summary: i bought this when the price was about $219 so for that price its a sweet deal, but at the current prices just go for the nvidia cards much cheaper and just as good. But for mining crypto currency this is the card you want for a multiple GPU settup thats also affordable. For gaming this card works really well and I can run this on high settings for need for speed rivals without any freezing. The card runs cool and quiet as well. RECOMMENDED!
Summary: If you're looking to buy bigger (~$500/$500+) I would wait till April/May or so and slum with a mid-range to weather the rough patch, as mid-range seems to be partially shielded from the Bitcoin bubble and general crappiness of the GPU market's offerings atm. The 2 non-reference GTX 780's I test-drove before purposefully going to this 270x really didn't give me a great bump and I wasn't that impressed, so I decided to wait things out.
Pros: -Solid FPS-per-dollar on the mid-range market., -the Windforce heatsink makes the cooling overkill for this card's output and thus ultra silent (always a good thing). It's the same tri heatsink that's on the 280x and GTX 780's), -mid-range is mostly insulated from the Bitcoin bubble
Cons: -Voltage locked, -No new game packages in sight for a while until AMD brings back Never Settle
