2 out of 5 eggsSometimes works

Pros: Its an awesome card. Very powerful but it has problems.

Cons: Overheats with fans at %100. Crashes regularly. Video freezes that require restart to fix system.

Other Thoughts: First bad asus product I have owned. Card is a refurb but others have had similar problems with the card being brand new. Also sucks that my new build is unstable because of this card.

2 out of 5 eggscard freezes

Pros: Runs fast for cost when playing games.

Cons: Frequently freezes when doing non-gpu taxing activities like surfing or word processing.

Other Thoughts: Got this card in exchange for a black screening HD 7790. I talked to ASUS about exchanging this for a different model with me paying the difference, but they weren't up for that. Freeze during surfing is no big deal, but a freeze when I'm working could be a big problem, so I guess I'll move on.

I can run on integrated graphics or an older ATI card with no issues.

Maybe someday they'll get it fixed and I can put it in an old machine.

1 out of 5 eggsnever worked

Pros: Makes a great paper weight
A prime example of what not to get when looking for a GPU

Cons: never have gotten the card to work. The drivers don't work. I have tried the card on two different machines with no success. Every driver set plus beta have been tried with no success. I completely wiped all trace of software associated with the gpu with each driver install and I have done this on 2 different machines.

Other Thoughts: I was told by a rep that because the card is a little under two months old I cannot return or replace but I can send it off to a third party repair center where it will cost $100 to repair. I feel like I have spent $130 on a paper weight

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

If the card was DOA then why didn't process an exchange through Newegg. If you need help creating an RMA for repair since its been 2 months, I would love to help. Please be sure to place case number # N140732002 in the subject line for me to reference your case properly, when yoou contact me. I'm here to help you and all others with these issues, as our customer loyalty department dedicated to bringing a resolution to all issues related to our products.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't run 2 monitors stock

Pros: Only one power hook up.

Cons: Second video is DVI-D. Can't run dual monitors without buying some expensive cable or adapter that nobody stocks!

Other Thoughts: Newegg is great but don't buy this for a dual monitor setup unless you have the cables or adapters. Only came with one VGA adapter. Cheap. Real Cheap.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware BAD card and poor support

Pros: Quiet, would be very nice IF it worked

Cons: Never worked perfectly (pixelation, brief screen blanks, etc.) but the rumors that new drivers would solve the problem kept me with it for three months. Functionality has gotten progressively worse so that now it runs an almost 50% duty cycle with the screen being on and off half the time - about once per second or two. System is fine with direct motherboard video and is also fine with a different display card plugged into the slot.

ASUS support is easy to reach on the phone but impossible to get to own up to the really SERIOUS problems they are having with this card. I guess some cards work and others don't (the reviews tend to be either "great" or "awful") if you get a bad one, you will be sorry. ASUS is demanding that I find a way to plug the card into a different motherboard before they will issue an RMA. I don't have the parts needed to do this and the motherboard (a new ASUS part) is obviously not the problem.

Since I waited three months, I'm not sure that Newegg (where I purchased this card) will be able to help.

Other Thoughts: I used to think very highly of ASUS - my current system is all ASUS parts - not sure how badly this incident will tarnish my impression of them.

5 out of 5 eggsFIX FOR GLITCHES...HOPEFULLY :)

Pros: Great card performance wise for the price...plays BF4 on Ultra 1080p 30-60fps.

Cons: Hmm obviously out of the box a lot of you are having serious issues with this card...there may be hope. I experienced artifacting on my desktop and in game. Watching videos and everything in between. Occasional freezes also...I tried every driver, googled every possible solution...

Other Thoughts: so i looked on the side of the box. Under recommended system requirements I noticed it says...Motherboard with free pci express slot and correct pcie chipset driver. Now theres what really got my attention...what pci express driver. hmm so i researched some more...and come to find out catalyst has a new and updated pci bus driver, guaranteed almost all of you with problems are running a microsoft version from 2006...the catalyst one is a new 2013 driver...mainly applies to amd board users but i think intel users can find an updated pci bus driver too. Do some research and look it up, its easy to do. Just wanted to share in this knowledge to somewhat save AMD/ASUS's face alittle...not bad card just not very smart on there behave in providing the right tools for it to work right...goodluck peoples.

1 out of 5 eggsFreeze, Reset, Freeze, Reset...Repeat

Pros: I tried to like this card, but ended up spending way too much time trying to get the card to work. When this card is in my computer, it constantly freezes and has to be rebooted/reset. It generally freezes the system doing normal tasks like web surfing. With a clean driver install, I'll get an hour or so of freeze free use out of the system. Then once it freezes, it happens every 15 minutes to a half hour, and the system is basically unusable.

So, I'd get sick of rebooting my computer all the time, and uninstall the AMD drivers, and put my old GTS 250 back in my computer, and install the NVIDIA drivers. I read a lot of web reviews on this card, and most of the complaints were attributed to buggy drivers. So, I had this card in and out, mostly out, of my computer for a couple months. I've tried the ASUS 13.20 WHQL drivers, AMD 13.25 WHQL drivers, 14.3 beta, 14.4 beta, and 14.4 WHQL drivers. I tried a different keyboard and mouse, tried under-clocking the card with the Graphics OverDrive in Catalyst Control Center. The only driver that "worked" is the "Microsoft Basic Display Driver" dated 2006, but you lose most of the functionality of the card with this old driver. The card is installed in an ASUS M5A97 R2.0 motherboard, and I tried the 2201, 2301 and 2501 BIOS updates. But, the freezing persisted no matter what I tried, so was it really the "drivers", or just a bad card?

Cons: So, I went onto ASUS's web site and started the RMA process for this card. The RMA process was painless and efficient, I sent the card off, and it was returned in less than a week. They returned the exact same card with the same serial numbers. I gave them the benefit of the doubt, put the card in, and did a clean install of Windows 8.1, update 1, x64, and the AMD 14.4 WHQL drivers. The computer froze, and had to be reset within an hour. I checked the BIOS on the video card, and it was dated 2013/09/25. So, they did nothing to the card when it was RMA'd. No BIOS update, didn't exchange if for a working card, nothing.

I'm done with the card at this point, and bought an MSI R7 260 1GB OC. Installed the new card and re-installed the AMD drivers, and voila, a fully functioning system that doesn't freeze and have to be constantly rebooted. I've had the system running for a week, no freezes, the system goes to sleep, and wakes up gracefully, it just works like it's supposed to. Same graphics drivers, similar card and chipset. So, it's obvious to me the card is defective.

If you read the reviews of the ASUS R7 260X on newegg, or other online retailers, it's the worst reviewed and lowest rated card of all the R7 260X's. A lot of the one star reviews mention the freezing issue. Seems rather curious that ASUS doesn't have a BIOS update, or a Version 2 of the card. I RMA'd the card, and they just sent the same bad card back at me! I called ASUS Technical Support, and asked why they sent back the same card, and why the MSI card works fine, but theirs doesn't. I just got a rather defensive canned reply on how thoroughly their technicians "test" RMA'd cards. I'm thinking a recall, and Version 2 of the card are in order. I bought the card before there were too may one star reviews. A little mad that I had to buy two cards, to get one that works, 2'fers aren't supposed to work that way.

Other Thoughts: System Information:

1 out of 5 eggsJust plain bad.

Pros: Nearly none, it sometimes works like it's supposed to.... Sometimes

Cons: For starters as mentioned several times before, the checker boarding is nearly constant and graphical glitches abound with no solution. To top that off the drivers are horrible. This card will overheat itself with any kind of load and the fan load never seems to go over 40% on "Automatic" settings. So the card will get to over 100 degrees Celsius then just crash for about 60 seconds while the drivers reset (this crashes what ever you happen to be doing as well.) Yes, it's a semi powerful card, but try loading this card with any sort of intense strain and it just produces artifact glitches like you wouldn't believe, then overheats and kills whatever was operating. Even typing this review I'm getting random spots of messed up pixels all over my screen. There are no drivers that fix this and the tweaking program is only good for turning up the fans to max to keep it from killing itself. Just save yourself time effort and money, and buy a better card. This one is NOT worth it at all.

Other Thoughts: Just stay far away from this if you're looking for an affordable gaming card. It does not deliver on it's promises.

1 out of 5 eggsBroken, poor support!

Pros: It worked for ONE MONTH

Cons: The card broke after a month of light usage. I RMA'd the card and Asus LOST THE GRAPHICS CARD! I haven't heard a word back from them at all, very bad customer service and quality. I get the run-around on the phone and THEY STILL HAVEN'T FIXED OR RETURNED MY CARD OR TOLD ME ANYTHING THAT WAS GOING ON! I would ask for a refund but sadly i cannot. I would not recommend Asus products to anyone now because of horrible quality control and extremely unpleasant customer service!

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY!!!
