Great Card

Niels C., Newegg
8 April 2013
  • Pros: Very easy to install into my Carbide 500R case, plenty or room. Runs almost silent. This is in my new gaming computer and it has been running great. The install was very easy and the cables run very clean. I have been running games at up to 140fps on ultra graphics. I love the card and feel it ca...

1 is good, 2 is better

Zachary Q., Newegg
15 February 2013
  • Summary: Great cards, awesome price point, not really much to complain about. Just make sure you have a decent PSU to run two of these (like any dual+ build)
  • Pros: Ordered 1 for my initial build, recently ordered a second, and these things blow every game out of the water at the highest possible settings. PS2 at true-ultra, Far Cry 3, Skyrim with true-HD mods etc.
  • Cons: Runs slightly warm for my tastes, but the last time I had a desktop was when 8800GTs were the big thing, so I guess this may just be part of adjusting to newer hardware (temps are comparable to other builds using these cards)

3 months of hardcore gaming +++!

Brett O., Newegg
19 January 2013
  • Summary: I've been a micro/miniature certifed electronics technician since 1990. I've built and or repaired hundreds of computers. I build a new computer at least once a year for myself and this one is the first one to experience NO video problems.
  • Pros: Maxed out settings on BF3 "Ultra" mode... I fly jets in the game frequently. Played with native settings and latest drivers and have NEVER had a problem in 3 months since I built this rig. Paired it with an MSI Z77-G45 and an I7 3770k... Everything native and PCIex 3.0. Still running the stock co...
  • Cons: No cons, no problems at all. It's very quiet until pushed, then the fans spin up and get loud, but that is expected as a deterent to prevent thermal runaway.

  • Pros: Fast, quiet, came with a game, great bang for buck, overclocks well, .... it just works as it should which is more than i can say for (see cons)...
  • Cons: ...my first card. It crashed and froze up before RMA. The new card has been trouble free for months now. Newegg is always great about RMA's!

Wow!

Dax H., Newegg
2 November 2012
  • Summary: Umm, they are pretty quiet, very fast, and don't get hot at all from what I have seen. I'm running a pair pushed by a 1090t since the 8350 CPUs are still on backorder. AMD might be a little behind on the CPUs, but man can they make a graphics card, lol.
  • Pros: These cards run very, very well. I was a little leary at first...wondering if it would keep up with my GTX480. Wonder no more, it smokes that old card, and for half the price. I'm sure the 7950s and whatnot are great cards, but for the money this card is very impressive. I have no regrets. Saved ...
  • Cons: None yet. FYI, even those these are listed as midrange cards (whatever), they are quite long. Another 1/2 inch and I couldn't fit them in my mid tower. Measure your case is all I'm saying.

Great card!

Brian S., Newegg
24 September 2012
  • Summary: Bought 2 for crossfire!
  • Pros: Fast, runs cool, works great in crossfire, works perfect with 4800x900 eyefinity with 1 or 2 cards.. All games I have thrown at them can be maxed out @ 4800x900 with no FPS loss.
  • Cons: Nothing against the cards, but AMD is annoying me with their drivers, not keeping up with their own hardware when it comes to driver support.. Now they decide not to release monthly drivers, so thats not helping.. 12.8 drivers have an annoying glitch with firefox and crossfire that makes a black ...

ZOMG

William b., Newegg
9 September 2012
  • Pros: zOMG!!! plays BF3 and Skyrim on ultra settings without hiccup BF3 stays around 50fps without PCIe 3.0 (my mobo only has 2.1) sometimes drops to 40 for a millisecond and sometimes jumps to the high 70's. Card is GIANT. Had to cut out one of my drive bays with wire cutters to make ample room for th...
  • Cons: It doesn't cook me bacon when I wake up.
