  • newegg WINDFORCE 2X: Anti-turbulence Cooling The special inclined dual fan design effectively minimizes the flow of turbulence between two fans and enhances heat dissipation of hot area right underneath each fan. By unique design, WINDFORCETM 2X even enlarges air channel on the graphics card vents and creates a more effective air flow system in chassis. This special design helps heat dissipate quickly from GPU. In addition, WINDFORCETM 2X is equipped with two copper heat pipes which strengthen the speed of heat dissipation.
  • newegg Ultra Durable VGA Powered by the Ultra Durable VGA technology, this card delivers enhanced overall performance you can see and feel in everyday use. The Ultra Durable VGA card doubles the copper inner layer of PCB achieving lower GPU and RAM temperature, reduces voltage ripples in normal and transient state achieving better overclocking capability, and allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance for more stable flow of current and improved power efficiency.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Super Cool. Overclocked using Trixx to allow unlockable voltage. to 1100 core and 1525 memory. was getting 95 fps on benchmark furry doughnut. temps at steady 42C. Fans at 60% - not louder than last card. set memory to 1400 and left core at 1075 and scores jumped to 125 fps on furry doughnut test in Kombuster. played Metro 2033 and last light. Avg 45 fps with AA on and at 2x and settings on high (not ultra) played 4 hours straight. no ctd. Highest temp was 43C. No stutter. Played Skyrim 205 mods including HD Nexus mods and SIMM. Had to cap fps at 90 in ultra (screen goes nuts if framerate is higher cheap screen but it is 35" 1080 capable" desktop size is 1366 x 768. No stutters. Fans are not loud but they are audible. Temps stayed at 38C. AA at 8x and Anti at 4X. Don't have BF$ but I did play Modern Warfare 3 on highest settings. No stutter. Pretty much played all day Saturday testing this out. Recomend you download latest drivers off website because install disk is old and I had issues with framerates using it. All fixed with newest. Reset card to stock 945 core and 1400 clock. Can still play all games on high with 30 fps and temps at under 40C. Good card, can overclock like a beast, but I prefer not to keep it overclocked. System is old and has choking point in processor. So I imagine with a higher processor and newer processor this thing flies.
i3 intel processor
6Gb kingston Ram
Corsair 680 Watt Power supply (but this card can run on 500Watts requires one 6 pin connector for one card two for SLI)
Gigabyte Motherboard with one PCI 2.0 slot.
1TB Hitachi Hard drive 7200 rpm.

Shocking right!

Cons: Only have had card for 1 month. So don't know how long it lasts. The one I got was refurbished and bought from NewEgg via ***y (i didn't know they were on ***ay) Price was great. sucked that it didn't come with at least one game it is an R9 card after all.

Other Thoughts: Great card. Hidden gem. Love newegg and their service. Hard Gigabyte was a cheap brand but so far all of my gigabye items have lasted forever. My previous 7770 card was a gigabyte too and had that for a year, still works. Keeping as backup just in case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for the money.

Pros: Runs everything I throw at it. Quiet. Easy install.

Cons: It's quite large and required a larger power supply then what I had. Not a product con, just my own experience with it compared to what I had been using.

Other Thoughts: The size and power needed are all clearly noted and not a con of the product. I had been running a low profile card and a lower watt power supply at the time. Seeing the size of the card was a little shocking for someone who hasn't bought a monster card like this before.

Bottom line, I love it. It does everything I need. It plays ESO at high settings, Alien Isolation maxed out, Saints Row IV maxed out, BF4 high settings, TERA: Rising maxed out.

The rest of my system is not quite to the power of this card, so I would imagine seeing ultra with great frames if you were using a better Mobo and processor setup.

2 out of 5 eggsDay 1

Pros: stays cool, was easy to install and get running without any problems

Cons: constant artifacts in and out of games, screen flickers and goes black often, fans sound like buzzing crickets

Other Thoughts: AMD software suggests I install the Omega (14.12) driver but when I look for the driver manually it only goes up to 12.4. I installed the omega driver.

2 out of 5 eggsTerrible Fans

Pros: Factory overclocked, Dual DVI, Inexpensive. Ran well in crossfire, but decided to split one into the HTPC

Cons: I have 2 of these cards and suddenly they both started to have a rattling/ticking/scraping fan noise. On one of the cards, the fan near the 6 pin connectors is starting to fail, you can hear it randomly trying to spin and then stop spinning, confirmed after opening the case. Fans are pretty noisy @ 30%. First RMA experience with a manufacturer in 14+ years of building, hoping they will take care of me like NewEgg did with RMAs in the past.

5 out of 5 eggsMostly Ultra

Pros: I am very satisfied with this GPU, it's my first computer build so I was expecting medium graphics at best.. However, I am able to play most games on ultra and those that seem to lag a bit I can drop down either Shadows or Particles and it fixes the issues.. Watch Dogs I'm playing fully Ultra with Shadows on Low. Game is amazing with those settings.. :)

Cons: The only con I've run in to is that when trying to overclock using AMD Catalyst, sometimes it overdoes it and crashes the GPU.. Even on the recommended settings for overclock. It's not a good card if you want to overclock while gaming, and I highly do NOT recommend it with this card without water cooling. On it's stock cooler it hits 60C just on normal operations. Overclocking would not be safe with this card..

Other Thoughts: Overall it's a great card, if you are new to building computers or just want something within budget, I totally recommend this GPU. Gigabyte hasn't steered me wrong yet :)

*Keep in mind the new mod that unlocks hidden features in Watch Dogs will not work with this GPU as it also puts shadows and particles on Ultra. It'll look amazing, but you will have a TON of lag.. ;)

1 out of 5 eggsFan Failure on 1 out of 3 cards

Pros: Works pretty well for mining if the fans hold up.

Cons: 1 of my 3 cards has a fan that started intermittently failing after about 2 months that causes it to run near 90*C at times while mining, as opposed to 80*C or less for the other two. It maxes out at around 1650rpm while the other two max out at around 2650rpm.

Other Thoughts: There is another reviewer who is encountering the same problem, so it might be a good idea to avoid this cooler design. I'm hoping Gigabyte will send a new fan assembly for me to install to avoid having to ship the card back for RMA.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome card...

Pros: Great card for gaming, awesome performance, cool temperature/looking.

Cons: Bit coin mining.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card almost the day it launched. I had to RMA the first one but I was able to get a new one before the prices just went out ragous. I only use this card for gaming and it does that very well, but because of bitcoin mining the price of this card has just gone crazy! If these had stayed at $180 than it would have been the best card in the price range but now that it is almost $300 I would never buy it, the GTX 770 is that price!
