Great GPU for the price

  • Summary: This is a solid card for good gaming at a reasonable price. I play a lot of Diablo III and it looks good with the card. I have had no driver issues. I would likee to crossfire, but I have heard microstuttering horror stories even at very high frame rates. I use an Asus 27-inch monitor that really takes advantage of this card. XFX takes their time with Rebates and they do not offer a fast alternative for 10% less like Asus and Gigabyte.

No problems except for the semi-loud fan

  • Summary: I haven't had any issues with it so far. I love how XFX has a lifetime warranty on it. BONUS. 2 GIG card is awesome. Supports cross-fire technology...sweet. The fan is too loud though when at 100% speed, but when my computer is just running the internet, Photoshop or generic programs the fan is quite and temp. is 49C.

  • Summary: I grabbed this at another website came with a good code for dirt 3 a good price and a rebate offer. (still waiting for it but when I go to the site it show it in processing mode I would give this 4.5 stars if I could. The double fan is not that quiet over 35% speed. I watch movies on blu ray and I stream more then I game. I aim at very quiet pc builds that are great for htpc and decent for gaming. This card fits that category. I get a 7.8 for my wei score on this card.

It's ok but no free game.

  • Summary: Contrary to what the site says, you WILL NOT get a Deus Ex game out of this. I ordered this and no where in the box was any mention about the game I was suppose to get bundled with the card. That game was the main reason I went with this card and not some other card that would have costed less. They charged extra for the game but didn't give the game! No disc, no key for a download like the site says, NOTHING. They ripped me off.

Great, quiet, fast, but no crossfire cable

akasurreal, Amazon

  • Summary: I am marking this review down by 1-star, only because this card does not come with a CrossFire Bridge cable. I had to order that separately and have read that they are usually included with AMD/ATI cards, whereas NVidia SLI bridge cables are generally included with your motherboard. Other than that, the card is exactly what I was hoping for, performs great, stays cool and quiet! Also works great in a hackintosh 10.6.8.

  • Summary: bought this card as a budget upgrade to my old, tired 8800gt. What a difference to gaming it made for the money i paid for it. Downside was paying extra for expedited delivery and not receiving the card for almost 7 days.

  • Summary: been playing the early 2013 releases on this card paired with an athlon 640 quad core processor overclocked to 3.5ghz. i bought the used one from videocardshop for £90. it works just fine, i can run most new games on the second highest settings with 60fps at 720p resolution. it is very loud when the fan spins up but this doesn't bother me, just turn your sound system up a bit.
