2 out of 5 eggsIt works.......sort of

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Looks nice inside the case
Packaging is fancy
Powerful Card

Cons: Where to begin?
The card constantly blue screens, glitches, pixelates, restarts my pc, there isn;t a day gone by that I've owned it (1month) that it hasnt done atleast a few of these things. I've tried everything to make it work (including but not limited to buying a new PSU incase that was the problem), bottom line is the drivers are unstable (not just the latest or the ones recommended by asus, i've tried all of them). So after a month I decided to RMA the product and asus don't offer cross shipping on graphics cards so I would have to go without using my PC the entire time which is not accepable at all, needless to say I'm using this as an excuse to go back to nvidea, buying a new graphics card so i can rma this one and then sell it. will never buy asus or amd again.

Other Thoughts: would of been a brilliant graphics card if it worked

4 out of 5 eggsworks great for me

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Card posts some great specs for the money (watch for sales/rebates on this one). Bought for a gaming pc, and it has definitely elevated my playing field. Picture is sharp and clear. Very good frame rate even with high resolution and a lot of features enabled. Card runs quiet and cool.

I've seen comments in the reviews about "coil whine" and noisy fans, but I have not had any of that.

Cons: I'm still in the burn in period, so bad things could still happen.

The card is long, so be sure you have tail end clearance in your box -- I had to remove an hd cage to fit in mine.

I have seen where the card stopped my PC from booting, but reseating the card cleared the issue. I am not willing to blame the board yet, I need to verify it's not a psu or mobo issue.

Other Thoughts: I've seen some other comments regarding asus customer service. I called on my card (above boot blocker issue) and had a very positive experience. The rep was notably tired, but they were still friendly, polite, and helpful.

3 out of 5 eggsIt is working so far

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Low price
Decent performance

Cons: Poor design

Other Thoughts: I bought this GPU for a crossfire setup. It is working fine so far. The reason why is has 3 egg is beacuse asus customer services sucks, worst I've ever seen. I submitted a rebate form and with all the required documents and it got denied because the need a specific invoice, not the one that you get with your order number and all that, you need to call newegg so request it. The costumer agent was unwilling to cooperate. I had to talk to 3 different agents for over 1 hour. Now I've 2 weeks and 1 time chance to send that invoice with some other form and see if they want to approve my rebate. This a joke.

3 out of 5 eggsA great card when it works.

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: - Fast
- Small compared to other cards of the same power
- Good graphics power

Cons: I have had this card for just over a year and am going to have to RMA it for a second time. It works great when I first install it in my system, but after a month of use, the two cards I have had so far began to have graphical problems like the screen not waking, tearing in low graphics games and other visual problems. I really wish I could just switch out for the SAPPHIRE 100364TXSR which is the same price.

Other Thoughts: If you have good luck, this card may work for you, but I have had two so far and both have started acting up as soon as the 90 day return policy ended.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card for the Money

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: This may not be a really high end card but it will run just about everything you need at max settings. The fans are really quite, even when at 100%. The cooler on the card is top notch. The ASUS software makes it even better.

Cons: It is tough to overclock since it comes out of the box with slight overclocking. If you are looking to overclock, just CrossFire this with another card.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this card to anyone who wants low cost performance.

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: It's factory overclocked, faster and quieter than my old XFX Radeon 6850 black ed. and cost less than what I paid for the XFX years ago.

Installed w/o any issues.

Cons: It's really big. Not a problem for me though. The plastic fan-shroud thingy feels a little weak.

Over-the-top packaging. I know it has to look good on a shelf somewhere that actually sells video cards... I bet 95% of these are sold online. Stop trying to make me feel like I just bought a Lamborghini with the fancy box and stickers. How about just a plain brown box and a lower price on the thing I actually want...

Other Thoughts: Asrock MA770DE socket AM3
Athlon II X3 > Phenom X4 3.1gHz
Antec P280 Full tower
Antec Neopower HE550 PSU
8GB Gskill something or other DDR3

Great Performance and great price for a mid to high end gaming rig. easily overclock able coming with its own program to make it fast and easy to do. Great card and I love Asus so totally deserves a 5

Cons: When running demanding games the fans on the card can get a little loud but other then that nothing else was bad about the card
