Power hog out of the box, powerful cool running electricity sipper with some tuning
2 January 2015
Summary: This was (and still is almost 2 years later) a great card. I've not had a hiccup out of it since buying it. My only complaint is out of the box power consumption was way high compared to what it could have been. I undervolted the thing substantially while overclocking it a little.
Summary: I got it pretty cheaply from a sale with Prime shipping. Didn't get a faulty one, packaging was good and it works like a charm. I mean if your rig is not a serious gaming rig, this works fine.
Summary: Have had good performance for the price I paid. One thing I am not overly impressed with... micro-stutter. In terms of pure fps (frames per second) comparisons, this card measures up well to it's nVidia competitors. BUT in many games I get quite a bit of micro-stutter.
Summary: I'm using this to drive a quad-HD monitor in an HTPC because Linux won't let me do it from my Z87 GPU. Not nearly as efficient running it this way, and the first thing I noticed was the heat pouring out of the cabinet.
Summary: This video card is perfect for mid range gaming and it is fully capable of any game out there right now. I bought this second one for a Crossfire setup and I love it. I got them both for a steal on Amazon and I highly recommend them to any person interested in gaming.
Very good card -- awesome with latest ATI Video Drivers released Nov '13!

Summary: Good overall card. Allows me to crank some games up to higher level than I've been able to with the 7750 card. I do notice when its cranking away in Total War Rome 2 it gets pretty hot in my desk area containing my tower. No alarms yet just saying I notice the heat a tad more.
