Summary: I needed to return the first card after much troubleshooting. The replacement shipped fast and worked immediately. Low power consumption runs cool. Performance matches expectation of a <$100 card. Satisfied with replacement card.

Summary: Very underpowered compare to a GTX similar in price. I just got this because of Mantel, and will last me until Witcher 3. Then I will switch to GTX 970 to utilize Nvidia gameworks in Witcher 3. It's already OC so no need for Afterburner or it will crash your system. Run BF3 1080p 30fps on High-Ultra, and 1080p 60fps Med-High. BF4 on Low-Med on 1080p 30fps with Mantel enable you will get a FPS boost.
Summary: The installation instructions said to install the card, hook up a monitor to the card's VGA port and then install the software. This resulted in a blank screen. I had to pull the card, and then install the software first. After doing this, the card worked fine.
Summary: I have two of these on a running in a Crossfire X configuration on a MSI motherboard. They run well for the price. I do have to run these on medium graphics quality on Sniper Elite 3. Sniper Elite V2 I can ruin them at a higher quality.
Summary: I dabble in the stock market & as the years have passed, I've noticed that higher resolution screens display more excel rows & columns & more informative graphs. So I've progressed thru a Sony CPT-1304 13" 1024x768, a Samsung 2433BW 24" 1920x1200, a Apple M9179LL/A 30" Cinema 2560x1600 & finally a Seiki SE39UY04 39" 3840x2160 monitors/displays.
