4 out of 5 eggsGood, needed to fix minor cooling issue

Pros: Been gaming pretty heavily with this, and quite pleased. Only one negative issue, which I was able to fix (see below).

Cons: The issue I had though is my entire computer would freeze, and I traced the problem to this graphics card...it was overheating, and would lock up to cool itself. Perhaps some light dust caused it to overheat after a few months, but I noticed the fan was stuck at 40%. I adjusted it to 50%, and now no problems (room temp, lots of use). I was surprised it doesn't automatically adjust. It's still very quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsExceeded my expectations

Pros: Exceeded my expectations by a great margin. As of this review 2014 all of my games including recent ones stay at very playable framerates set on highest settings with the resolution set to 720p. The drivers from AMD where easy to install on windows 8.1 x64, I already had a AMD apu so it was ready when I booted up! Linux was much the same with the drivers.

Cons: I recommend setting a manual profile for automatic fan control (stays at around 130F on default under load), also on high demand games disabling the GPU governor or setting it to performance settings. The clock scaling is in much the same woeful state as the fan control.

3 out of 5 eggsNope

Pros: Works great, In SOME computers

Cons: If it doesn't work then it doesn't work

Other Thoughts: AMD products to me have always been bad
My friend told me to give AMD 1 last chance and said how much better they are at supporting motherboards then they use to be... So i bought it put it into my computer it ran fine for about a week then my computer started to blue screen 2-3 times a day.

I wanted to love this card....
So 3 months of putting up with 2-3 bluescreens every day
I bought a new power supply because my friend told me maybe my power supply was bad....
Still bluescreen 2-3 times per day

So i finally broke down and bought another graphics card
EVGA 750 FTW 2gb plugged it in been running fine since

I gave the R7 260x to my friend because he has a more stable motherboard then me, and it works fine for him

So unless you have a decent motherboard... Don't buy AMD graphics cards

I have bought 3 AMD graphics cards over a period of 6 years and all 3 of them had issues with bluescreening/driver issues

So its not just this card in my opinion its AMD altogether

For the same price i paid for my 260x and then had to buy a 750FTW i could be sitting here with a 970

Thank you AMD/Gigabyte

Use Nvidia//EVGA and know its going to work.

2 out of 5 eggsJust Requested A RMA

Pros: Worked really well when it worked. For the price, it was fast and ran cool.

Cons: Apparent driver problems. With very light use or no use at all it would go to a black screen after a couple of hours and nothing except power off/on would get the machine working again. Tried multiplel drivers from Gigabyte and AMD but the problem persisted. Tried a different card and problem went away.

Other Thoughts: It really does seem to be a good card when it works but it's useless to me if I have to hard reset the machine multiple times a day.

1 out of 5 eggsLots of problems with this card

Pros: Wasn't D.O.A.

Cons: May as well have been DOA...

1. Pixelation occurs in random, rectangular areas of the screen while playing games.

2. The screen remains black after waking up Windows, requiring a hard reboot to fix. The only way I found to prevent the black screen was to revert to an older driver version (the default one that Windows picks) and not installing ANYTHING but the graphics driver (CCC seems to cause issues with this card).

3. Caused BSOD while doing nothing more than using my web browser.

I've tried several driver versions and none of them have fixed these problems.

Other Thoughts: I kept the card for over a month trying to clear up these problems. While researching my issues I found that a lot of people were either having the same or similar problems as mine. I've tried every suggested fix for these problems that I've come across and, like everyone else with these issues, nothing fixes the problems.

Buyers remorse sucks...

I really wish I wouldn't have kept it for over a month so that I could have done an RMA refund...now I'm S.O.L.

2 out of 5 eggsOK Card

Pros: good card runs everything

Cons: Cannot update the drivers to any rev above 13.251 because I loose one of my monitors (I have 3 connected). I bought it for an HTPC but could not get the audio to play over the HDMI connector.
