AMAZING video card

M. Duhon, Amazon
3 May 2014
  • Summary: If you are looking for a truly amazing video card that will blow every other card out of the water without completely breaking the bank (I know this is still expensive) this is the card you want. It is great for gaming along with mining if you are wanting to mine litecoins or some other script currency. It stays very cool and is quiet.

Replaced XFX 7970 BE

Steven B., Newegg
16 April 2014
  • Summary: Thinking about buying another for crossfire!
  • Pros: Had an XFX 7970 BE I bought from Newegg last year and worked great up until a month ago when it began showing artifacts in games as well as on my desktop so I setup an RMA with XFX which was both quick and painless and they shipped me this 280X which is faster than the card it it replaced and is stable! thanks XFX

Well, I'm not sure what to say...

  • Summary: Beautiful card. Huge. Like a brick. It works. Now to my uncertainty.... I bought this card to play ArmA 2/DayZ & ArmA 3, Elder Scrolls Online and af ew other PC games...as it stands, I've only used it for ArmA 2 DayZ. I was expecting to get 60-70fps, unfortunately I only get 30-40fps (closer to 30 than 40). Needless to day I was quite pissed after purchasing this and realized my $169 card was giving me the same performance as this $370 card.

Pleased

Andrew H., Newegg
20 January 2014
  • Pros: Fast card, great looks, smooth gaming. Had no issue setting up drivers on Windows, some minor issues using drivers in Linux. Fit my case without issue, but left little room to spare. Cooling seems adequate and performs well after adjustment described below
  • Cons: Poor quality control out of the box: bent radiator blades, which I couldn't get completely straightened, even after careful work with a flat screwdriver.

Great Card

Josei W., Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Summary: ShopRunner's OnTrac delivery service sucks. I live in an apartment and leave a note on my door specifically asking the driver to leave the package with the manager at the main office. UPS, Fed-Ex, and USPS all do this and leave slips in your mailbox to notify you of a package. Nope OnTrac couldn't bother doing that and just left the package on my front door step where someone could have picked it up and walked away with it.
  • Pros: I like the look of this card a-lot. It's simple and discrete, none of the over-top vents and graphics that make me feel like I'm a 12 year old.
  • Cons: The price was a little high due to cryptocurrency mining. You get a free game so I guess it's not such a bad deal (at $419).

Does what I bought it for

Tyler H., Newegg
17 December 2013
  • Summary: Great card, but was disappointed by the warranty stickers on the cooler screws.
  • Pros: Beefy card that packs quite a few horses. Stays relatively cool at 100% load. I look forward to grinding games with this beast.
  • Cons: The only beef I have with this card (And XFX) is the presence of the warranty voiding stickers on the cooler screws. I was hoping to install an aftermarket cooler, but cannot without voiding the warranty. Also, the VRM's run hotter than I would like. Good thing the warranty exists.

Great card, check your PC airflow

Miles W., Newegg
15 December 2013
  • Pros: This card is fast, great for gaming and scrypt mining.
  • Cons: If you are going to run this card hard, you have to have a fan pointing at the back of the card (back of the card being the front of the PC) otherwise the VRM will get too hot, I think this is a problem with all manufactures of 280x.

Runs beautifully

Darrel M., Newegg
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I can't get over how physically gorgeous this card looks. Looking at it through the sidepanel window is like looking at an escort through a window in Paris' red light district.
  • Pros: - Runs all the games I've thrown at it
  • Cons: - None so far
