Summary: I have an ancient AMD 4 core 2.5g Phenom II PC with 8gigs of 800mhz DDR2 RAM and Win 7 64. I have an old 32" 720p 60hz LCD TV for a monitor. With this card FRAPS says I am getting between 90fps and 120fps on TF2 with every thing turned up and 4xAA. About the same thing on CSGO. I replaced a 5770 with this card. It tripped my PC rating. I got it on sale + a rebate was 98.99.

Summary: been using it for several months now and it works great. If you're looking for a quality video card at a decent price, this is a great option. I don't overclock it and I can play all of my games at max graphics without any problems. I play Smite, Payday 2, Team Fortress 2, Trove, and Skyrim with it.
Great Video, Linux Software Tweak Needed for Audio (pulseaudio)

Summary: This was a nice upgrade for a failing Radeon 4670 I have had for many years. It works very well under Linux with the xorg driver rather than the proprietary ATI driver. I am running Linux Mint 17 Qiana and I had to search for a minor tweak for the HDMI audio because the audio was scratchy and distorted. The tweak required modifying two files: The file /etc/pulse/default.pa need one line modified.
Summary: Not a technical guy but this seemed like a generally best value for the buck graphics card in the ~$100 range (got it on discount!). Showed up lookin all pretty, installation was easy, had no problems. Use it to play Civilization: Beyond earth with no issues. Even play Star citizen which requires significantly more firepower - and this can handle with no trouble.
Summary: Very fast graphics. First time building my Pc with this. Played a couple of source games and League of Legends running with i5 4670k not OC and getting 200+ fps maxed out settings. While on high load, I'm only getting around 50C in Temps and 30-40C when idle. I am happy with this card.
Summary: Useful for modern gaming needs, plays every game at ultra settings and uses very little power. I have this paired with a 430watt power supply and a Haswell i5 and it is a perfect solution for my gaming needs.
Summary: This video card works GREAT! I am not a real gamer, but my son is and it is installed in his computer. He plays some really intense 3D graphic games and they seem to run fine to my eyes. He hasn't complained, so I take that as a good sign.
If you need a GPU ASAP for a low price that will get the job done, look no further.

Summary: For its price, nice performance. Not ideal for intensive games, but has the most bang-for-buck ratio in this price range. I plan on upgrading in 5 months or so, but this is surprisingly nice for overclocking, and you can control the fans if your into soundproof. If you need a GPU ASAP for a low price that will get the job done, look no further.

Summary: Product was not compatible with my system, although it met all system requirements. Radeon customer support was horrible and after verifying that my machine could handle the card only gave me the suggestion to "take it to a friends house and try it on their computer to verify that it was defective.". Trying a MSI Geforce 650 Ti, and waiting on that to come in.
There is not a dramatic difference in price and it is a better card from a performance and connectivity perspective

Summary: This is a solid budget card that will give you a lot of mileage for the price. However, I would caution prospective budget buyers to consider the slightly more expensive Gigabyte R9 270 GDDR5-2GB 2xDVI/HDMI/DP OC Graphics Card instead of this one. There is not a dramatic difference in price and it is a better card from a performance and connectivity perspective, especially if overclocked. I ended up returning this one and getting the Gigabyte.
