Decent I suppose.

  • Summary: After a year or so the graphics card got a tad screwy and bugs out and rotates only when it wants too. and makes an odd grinding noise.
  • Pros: Still working so that's good right?
  • Cons: Works still but not to its full potential.

  • Pros: When i first got it worked great
  • Cons: after owning it for over a year it seem to have taken a turn ,it works, but alot of my games are messed up, random lines coming from items and such, crashing and all good for low end gaming to not wear it out

So loud

robert i., Newegg
24 September 2012
  • Summary: Try another brand! Or be prepared to buy an aftermarket heatsink.
  • Pros: Solid craftsmanship. Great performance for price. Low wattage requirement. Plays Starcraft 2 on ultra with really good frame rates (i3-3220 processor).
  • Cons: So incredibly loud. The fan howls even at 10% throttle. I thought it was the fan noise against the aluminum casing, or the odd shaped rear vents. In fact, the fan is just really loud. Whatever type of bearing they are using is not working well.

Great Card, terrible rebate

David K., Newegg
25 January 2012
  • Summary: Great card, plan on crossfire in the next 3 months
  • Pros: Run's most games very well. It will play skyrim 1920x1080 maxed out with a slight OC on MSI Afterburner. I have yet to set up eyefinity with it but will get there eventually
  • Cons: Don't count on the rebate. It's been almost 6 months with out a word on the status.

UPDATE to previous review.

Alice B., Newegg
19 December 2011
  • Summary: I originally thought my 1 Cooler Master case fan (the rest are Xigmateks) was making this noise and erroneously blamed it on that fan, however I now see it is this fan making the noise.
  • Pros: Very decent performance on today's games. Perf. vs cost is great.
  • Cons: Fan started making horrible noises recently that I have never heard a fan make before. Flicking the center of the fan silences it for awhile. This makes this card the single loudest thing in my computer by a large margin. This is not a typical "noisy fan" scenario, something is definitely wrong h...

Great price/performance ratio but it falls short

Mary E., Newegg
24 November 2011
  • Summary: With new cards coming out from both AMD and Nvidia I would wait and avoid purchasing this card.
  • Pros: This card offers good performance for the price.
  • Cons: The single fan is very, very loud under load. This card doesn't stay very cool even at stock clock speeds. The free dirt 3 game that came with it was a pain to get. First I had to wait a week once I entered the code online. Then I got emailed another code that I had to enter again on the same sit...

Horrible customer service

Sean V., Newegg
4 November 2011
  • Summary: For this reason, I would recommend buying a different brand. The card itself is great, but if I could go back and buy a different brand to get better service, I would.
  • Pros: I've had this card since the beginning of October. It's been performing really well so far.
  • Cons: The card hasn't had any cons, but XFX denied a rebate claim stating the 9/28 isn't between 9/16 and 9/30(the dates of the program). They refuse to answer emails. Horrible support.

Ryan S., Newegg

  • Summary: get it for good performance for a budget but be warned about poor customer service
  • Pros: This card ran all my games on max settings when I had it ( granted I do not run high demanding games really)
  • Cons: It just starting making my system beep one day so I have been trying to get a replacement from XFX for 3-4 weeks now and no reply to 2 emails sent

great card, but not for multiple monitors

Eric B., Newegg
5 September 2011
  • Summary: If you want this card for gaming on 1 monitor... great, just don't try and get a 3 monitor eyefinity going, buy something else
  • Pros: It came with Deus ex: human revolution, plays games really well for the price... Not the reason I purchased it, I give it one egg for the game, and 2 more eggs for playing it well.
  • Cons: I purchased this card in order to run 4 monitors, forget it, I can't even have 3. I purchased all the adaptors, used the display port (made it my main) and 2 DVI, and still use 3 monitors(it detects all 4 plugged in, just won't let you use more than 2). I just purchased another exact same card fo...
