Summary: This was part of a new build I put together with pcpartpicker - once I realized that I had to update my motherboard to try the PCI-E slot first, it worked great! It's a big card, make sure it can fit in your case! I needed to update the drivers right from the box, but not a big deal.
Summary: This is the best graphics card ever, It can play every game I have on high settings. ITS UNBELIEVABLE. Perfect size for a graphics card and it's easy to install the drivers. I definitely prefer the XFX Black Edition Double D R9 280x for the money.
Summary: Buy the equivalent card from a different manufacturer who will actually provide the promised support. Nothing wrong with the hardware--occasional failures are expected, which is why the warranty is so important.
Pros: When the card works, it's great. I can run everything on ultra on my 2560x1440 display with this and an i5.
Cons: Recently, my computer began locking up under heavy load, and swapping out this card with another identical one solved the problem. However, the only way to request an RMA seems to be through the XFX Support website, which does not send email confirmations or notifications for anything, and doesn'...
Pros: This video card started off great, I could run all games on max settings without any issues.
Cons: Now the bad, after 8 months the card started having issues. -Display flickering on both primary and secondary monitors (at least once an hour) -Both screen will display a biege screen with lines coming down them, audio will still come out of speakers/headphones but system will be unresponsive, ha...
Summary: Make sure you have a newer psu this thin eats up power maxed out I had random reboot blue screens under clocked and no problem my supply was 800w but was old and only had 30amp on 12v rail new one in mail 850w with 72 amp on 12v rail
Pros: Sexy looking and super fast lifetime warranty.

Summary: I used to love XFX back in the day. You guys need to be MUCH clearer on the product description about what configurations you support.
Pros: Pretty to look at. Cant really comment on performance since I cant get it set up for the use it was intended for.
Cons: Like Benjamin before me, I was attempting to run with multiple monitors. I had upgraded from a GTX 660 that ran 4 monitors flawlesly. I saw that this card could handle "6" monitors at once. There was no information other than you must use the mini display ports. No comments that you need to buy 2...
