5 out of 5 eggsGood for a budget.

Pros: Works like a charm in Windows with the provided Catalyst drivers. I was able to play a bunch of games on Great / Ultra settings with no issues. I think this card has its limitations just like any other hardware, but it would be a great card for someone who is a gamer or video/photo editor (it integrated into Photoshop CS6 with no problems whatsoever). The dual fans keep the card around reasonable temperatures when using nothing but stock cooling (say, one or two chassis fans and a cpu fan in a new rig).

Cons: The struggle for working Linux drivers continues. Be wary. As an Arch user, I had to downgrade Xorg and Mesa to non-stable versions to get this thing working which is never fun.
Keeping that in mind, you'll probably want to use Vi0l0's repositories for drivers if you intend on using this card with Linux.

I am not taking off any eggs for these cons, because it is a personal choice, not something the hardware manufacturer personally shunned me for.

Other Thoughts: Supports crossfire. Two of these cards would probably be a good idea for an extra boost!

5 out of 5 eggsExceeded my expectations.

Pros: I was originally going to get a regular R7 250, but decided at the last minute to splurge and get this card instead and so far I'm really glad I did. I've maxed out every game I've tried so far and it plays them all no problem. It might not get 60 FPS on them but I can't really tell the difference.

So far, I've tried Sims 3, The Stanley Parable, Octodad, Grid, Dirt 3 and Showdown, Team Fortress, Black Mesa, and a couple others and haven't had any problem. I'm not sure how it'll handle BF4, Metro, or Crysis, but I'm sure it'll handle those too on acceptable settings.

ASUS also included some cool GPU Tweaking software for on the fly overclocking and such. I was impressed.

Comes with a DVI to VGA adapter if you're running on an older monitor like me, I completely forgot about it and was freaking out until I saw the adapter in the box. Kudos to ASUS for including exactly what I needed.

The packaging is pretty cool too.

Cons: This thing is big. Like, a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be. If you're building a smaller machine I'd take a look at the sizing and make sure everything's going to fit.

It requires a 6 pin power connector but the connector on the card isn't that obvious so make sure you remember to plug it in before you try to boot it up.

According to the box it recommends a minimum 450W PSU, so if you're trying to game on the cheap make sure you get spend a little on a better PSU. I recommend the one I got listed below in the Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: If you're building a budget gaming computer but still want decent performance I wouldn't hesitate to buy this card. For the price, I think it's a very good value.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for budget

Pros: Great card a budget build, only reason I bought this card was to compliment the new APU I bought, but turned out it doesn't support the 250X version..

Cons: Not the cards fault that nothing states it wasn't compatible with the apu but it is amd's for not being stating so at the launch of the a10.

4 out of 5 eggsA Nice Mid-Range Card

Pros: -Reasonable price for the specs.
-Runs games like Battlefield 3 at acceptable settings
-Supports multiple DVI monitors
-Fits into even the smallest of desktop cases
-Drivers are easily installed (includes tweaking and adjusting software stock)

Cons: -Slows down running newer games at max resolution and graphic qualities.
-Either is not strong enough for PhysX (even from games over 5 years old), or isn't compatible.
-Some older games may stutter depending on developer-proprietary settings.

Other Thoughts: In terms of the price, don't expect to be playing things like Battlefield 4 and Titanfall on max ultra settings, though it will run them nonetheless. For the price, it is well worth what you get. For the gamer who either is switching from console to PC, or the budget minded gamer, this card will do what you want. If you already have a good graphics card, and are looking for a replacement, this may or may not fit you, depending on what you want to play, and how well you want to play them.

In short, I would recommend it to gamers on a budget, it'll do what you want just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsWell worth its weight in gold

Pros: Easy set up, very quiet, runs cool (not hot/or even warm)....and I game for hours on end! You will NOT find a card, with as much for a price even close!

Cons: The only con I have is there were no reviews, for me to dig into prior to purchasing. (which is why I'm leaving one for you all)

Other Thoughts: Delivery was quick ..and painless! I had the old cards out, and replaced them with one R7 250X 2G in minutes! The Drivers installed pretty quickly, and they're very easy to tweek! I hope this review is helpful! (games I play..CSgo..Outlast..FEAR..Bioshock infinant..and Titanfall) all at full 1080 0r better!
