Summary: Bought to replace my ancient HD5850 purchased in 2009. So far, I'm thrilled. It was a huge pain to install, but now that it's done, I hopefully won't have to mess with it for another 5-6 years.
Pros: - Plays Fallout 4 on ultra settings at 50-60 FPS - Quiet enough. I saw some reviews that mentioned coil whine and other noise, but I hear nothing of the sort. - Cheap
Cons: - Too big. Had to swap cases and remove a drive bay just to make it fit. I saw other reviews that mentioned the size, and thought I would be OK. Nope, it's just too long. If you have mid-tower sized case with non-removable drive bays, be prepared to do some cutting. - Runs a tad warm, 70-80C when...
Summary: For the price, you cant beat this performance. It's a little more than the standard Double dissipation, but that extra speed is nice.
Pros: Looks great, works great, and was one of the best priced graphics cards for the ADM 280X
Cons: if you are looking for a smaller card, this is not the card for you. It also was probably my case, but the screw holes on the card did not line up very well with the holes on my case to hold it in place.
Pros: I have owned this card for about a year now. I have the Noctis 450 Case and asrock 990x killer motherboard. This Card paired with my FX-8320 is Great!! I can play any game I throw at it at high or ultra settings! Around Idle Temps it gets to about 35C. And under load the max ive seen is 60C Temp....
Summary: Really wish it didn't have coilwhine and that crossfire with a 7950 wasn't a jittery mess so that the purchase is actually worth it, because at this point I wish I didn't buy this card
Pros: Framerates are as good as I could expect with just one card running, good sleek compact profile
Cons: in crossfire with my old 7950 it was a jittery mess on actual videogames where as benchmarks showed promising gains, and there is an extremely loud CoilWhine... I RMA'd the card and got another one with equal amounts of coilwhine and I'm extremely displeased about that
Pros: Card runs very cool due to the large heat sink. Frame rates definitely increased after installing this card. I bought this card to start my update from my three HD 7970's that were performing well until the release of the R Series video cards and drivers. I currently run one of these cards crossf...
Cons: None that I can think of. Card has performed flawlessly. Looking to buy another one shortly.
Summary: Keep in mind that this 280x is an iteration of the 7970. However it is overclocked and the RAM runs faster too. It runs very nicely. Windows calls it a 7000/R200 series, but the correct 280x will show up if you use current version of GPU-Z.
Pros: - It is very quiet, generally - it keeps low temperatures - it has nice clean aesthetics - huge heatsink assembly - its overclocked already without using Overdrive - 3GB RAM - Lots of output options (2 DVI, 1 HDMI, 2 DP)
Cons: - Sticks about an inch and a half off the end of an ASUS Sabertooth M-board. Can be a tight fit. - Fan bearings/shafts/mounts/sleeves could be a little better. They get noisy (in a clicky way, not an airflow sound way) when they spool up to full. - Draws a lot of watts when going balls to the wall.
