Summary: I cant speak for this as it did not work in my pc. I cannot say if it was at fault or just bad luck for me. The reviews of this card would have it being a spectacular bang for buck which is why I picked it up. I could not get windows to post with the unit I had in my machine.
Summary: low cost and very nice speed, plays all modern games at great frame rates, and I get about 350 KH/s for litecoins, also VERY quiet, my powersupply makes more noise than this card at max output.
Summary: The graphics card performance is very likely the best bang for your buck that you can get if you want an r9 270x, all my games run at full settings, and I experience no problems while using a 3D program called Blender. My only complaint is that the linux driver support wasn't very good, especially considering MSI doesn't even provide a native Linux driver.
Summary: I play WoW, FireFall, and Minecraft at 5760x1080 (6018x1080 with bezel compensation) and this card handles all of these games without hesitation. I can only play FireFall at high without low fps, but that's because it's a new game with loads of stuff going on at all times. Don't install the drivers that came on the disc; install drivers from AMD's website and MSI afterburner from MSI's website.
Summary: Ordered it prime. Got it on time. Stuck it in a new build. (Gigabyte GA-990fxa v4.. AMD8350@4.3.. 8 Gskill sniper... kingston hyperx) right away oc'd it to 1215MHz. have not run stress test. just game all day. with no blue screen. 50+hours on BF4. card is beast.
