Summary: Nice card, I already see a increase in my FPS on games, and a general resolution increase over the integrated GPU. The problems I have with this card, and the reason I gave it a 3 star, is that right out of the box, the metal bracket was bent, which was easy enough to unbend, but they should make...
Summary: Because of the issues noted above, I pulled the card and went back to the onboard graphics for now. Everything is back to normal. I'll probably drop this in an older Win 7 machine and hope I don't run into similar problems.
Pros: It's compact, quiet (duh, no fan) and easy to install once you disable your onboard graphics. CD failed so just went to the website for the install and drivers. Always love the Catalyst Control Center -- gives you everything you need to install, tune and update. Once installed the card worked fin...
Cons: VERY quirky with Win 8.1. Lost the "sleep" function in the shut-down menu, as well as a few other power-saving options. Also, Windows was telling me I had 2 monitors installed: a generic non-pnp and a generic pnp. This caused the cursor to extend way off the screen to the right, supposedly to the...
If you have good circulation in your case there shouldn't be a problem

Summary: Important to note right away: 3 stars may not be fair because I installed this on a Windows 8.1 system. It seems everything you do on Win 8 is quirky, and this card is no exception. After the install, I lost the "sleep" mode on my shut down options, as well as several other power features.
Summary: I know why Newegg products are usually dead on arrival and I have told them every time I have to RMA a product. THEY JUST DON'T CARE ABOUT THE CUSTOMER ENOUGH TO TAKE CARE OF THE ISSUE!!!!!!!!
Pros: Had a nice box and the card looked good. This card shut down the on board video function of the motherboard when installed and this allowed my to teach my son how to trouble shoot those problems. FOR THIS I GIVE 3 STARS!
Cons: I needed a Video card for my sons computer that I am showing him how to build and program. We got the card and it did not function at all.
Summary: Ordered 2. One worked good, the other crashed. No problem getting a replacement. Replacement works good. On both of the machines I'm running these on there is a noticeable difference between the picture quality between the dual screens.
It's Fair for the Price. Nothing Special but works.

Summary: I have had this card for awhile now. Gaming is OK if everything is set to the lowest settings. The card start to show glitching after 1 month casual use like going on Social Media Pages. This card is OK if someone doesn't expect heavy duty anything. This card just won't do it.
Summary: This was delivered to my local Wal Mart in a timely manner. It installed easily into my computer. But, there were several problems after I installed it. I lost access to the BIOS, control panel, and "sleep" function. An internet search and question to Radeon's web site did not provide any solutions.
