Fantastic Graphics Delivered!

Drew_2112, Amazon
23 April 2015
  • 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.

Horrible Tech Support

John M. Michigan, Amazon
17 April 2015
  • Summary: I had to take into Best Buy for tech support to get this to download new graphic drivers. Pain in the a$$, plus cost me $199.00 to fix.

Great Graphics card.

Sally Howes, Amazon
17 March 2015
  • 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.

XFX Support Nonexistent

Andrew H., Newegg
27 February 2015
  • 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'...

Totally misleading statements about multi monitor functionality

Brian B., Newegg
22 December 2014
  • 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...
