DO NOT BUY -390X is compatible, double the RAM and cheaper!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 November 2015
  • Summary: This was a great card in it's day, which is why I ordered a second. Luckily I found out that the 390X would work in CrossFire in time to cancel. The reason the 290X cards are so hard to find now is that the new 390X cards are basically the same but with double the RAM.

LOW FPS

Robert K., Newegg
26 July 2015
  • Summary: I already wrote a review on this product but I guess we can not reply or edit them? I updated my BIOs and my drivers. The issue is not my rig. It's the card. I don't think I'll be purchasing from MSI ever again.
  • Pros: Looks cool
  • Cons: VERY low fps. I expected a card in this price range to handle games on high settings with out a problem. I guess I was wrong.

LOW FPS

Robert K., Newegg
28 June 2015
  • Summary: I've spent hours and hours trying to figure out why this card is so bad. I can't manage to fix it.
  • Pros: Looks cool
  • Cons: Over priced for starters. This card performs at about the rate of a 90$ card at best. Running ESO at about 30fps at times. Lower in town. For a card of this price range I expect AT LEAST 60fps. Cards that cost less than half of this perform WAY better. And no it's not my cpu. 8 core processor clo...

Great for games

David T., Newegg
13 May 2015
  • Summary: Don't hesitate to buy this one if your trying to game on a budget!
  • Pros: Run a lot of games on maximum graphics with little framerate drops on monitors below 4k
  • Cons: can be loud when used over long periods (though not as loud as many other brands) , the box says that its 4k ready but I've tried playing some games with it on 4k and it takes quite a hit...if you are trying to play with 4k make sure to drop your graphical settings a bit or buy two of these cards.

Bad Card

Edmond G., Newegg
23 April 2015
  • Summary: From the hour or so of playtime that I got out of the card, it was fantastic. I just wish I didn't get two bad cards in a row. Now, I can't RMA it because it was being examined by a computer store.
  • Pros: The specs on this card are great, I have just had a horrible experience.
  • Cons: To start, I ordered this card back in mid-February. The card came no problem. No dents, scratches on the box. Pure mint condition. I go to install the GPU and things were working fine until my computer started to restart itself. Out of nowhere, a random restart would occur. Even if my PC was at i...

Great Card

Lisa P., Newegg
7 April 2015
  • Summary: Would recommend this card to average gamers looking for some thing great but no going to break the bank.
  • Pros: Can run any battle field in ultra setting. Can run most games in 120 fps. Supports up to 4 monitors all running at 1080p.
  • Cons: A bit expensive and doesn't support 4k resolution.

Awesome Card, But.....

Aaron L., Newegg
3 April 2015
  • Summary: Bottom line: this is a truly awesome card, but the pricing is so irrational that I cannot recommend buying at the current time. I docked it one egg only for the lack of value. If this card goes back to the mid three hundreds, it is a strong buy.
  • Pros: Great R9 290X card. Nice to look at, great fit and finish. Truly a beast. Crushes *anything* at 1080p. I was really happy with even 4K gaming, but I was not playing any really demanding titles. When I started playing Shadow of Mordor, I decided it was time for a second one of these cards....
  • Cons: If you want to go really high end on a single card, the 8GB version of this card is currently $10 more. How could you not? If you want a crossfire setup, and already have this unit, the r9 290 in this line is very close to as good for a current $100 less. If you are looking for two cards for cros...
