2 out of 5 eggsWorked well... for 3 weeks

Pros: Easy install, ran well while it lasted.
VGA, DVI, and HMDI ports.
Very quiet and didn't get too hot.

Cons: Died after a few weeks. "Input signal out of range" immediately upon turning on the PC.

Other Thoughts: I needed a replacement for my HD 4870 which had been giving me "screen glitter" in games that weren't very graphics intensive. I bought this as an inexpensive upgrade in the beginning of August.

It was small and easy to install compared to my cumbersome old card; I didn't even have to plug the PSU into it. It ran very well for the first few weeks. Compared to my old card, it stayed cool and didn't sound like an original xbox when running heavier games.

One day when I pulled the computer out of sleep mode the screen kept turning on and off and sometimes gave me a glitchy image. I'm using an old 1280x1024 VGA flatscreen which is several years behind this graphics card, but that shouldn't matter. I don't play any games which could have been too "intense" for it (it's way above the recommended level for the most graphics intensive game I play).

Last time I saw my display with this card, it was checkered in cyan boxes, then the display turned off, and came back on as a black and red checkerboard. I rebooted my computer and got the "input signal out of range" error. Since this has to do with the card trying to broadcast a larger picture than the monitor can handle, I used the HDMI port to plug it into my TV. Nothing. Tried a more recent TV, nothing. Tried a VGA cable on that TV, and again nothing happened. I tried other VGA and DVI monitors and nothing changed.

When I finally had a day off from work, I gave up and took the computer to get looked at. They removed the card and used a more basic card and the display showed up, confirming it was an issue with the card. I cleaned out my old card and put it back in and everything worked fine. I changed the screen resolution, updated the drivers, and swapped this card back in and got the same error.

This card is a lot cheaper than it was when I bought it, but while I'm happy with the performance of the card while it worked, I'm not too happy about it dying so close to the end of the 30 day return policy...

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte R7 240 rev2

Pros: Great entry-level card. Cheap enough to buy in quantities. You can use Crossfire for 2 cards. The memory spec is more than adequate. No matter what the spec complaints are, this beats integrated graphics by offloading heat or having to use shared memory. You can use this for CAD and Document, as long as you render/preflight somewhere else. I would say 3D rendering is not spectacular until clustered with several machines on Gigabit LAN.

Cons: Do not buy the resolution specs above 1920x1080. I have a Viewsonic that also specs above 1080 and could not get the card to push above that. While you can attach a second monitor, it would not be the same connection type and you risk heat buildup on the board. It runs prime at 80~88F(26-31C) which is standard for stock CPU/GPU heartsinks. Crossfire that.

*Power gamers and 3D renderers need not apply. Buy this to get work done.

Other Thoughts: *If you have a mobo with only PCIe 2.0, do not fret. The card runs fine. Also, I read that the MacPros (as tech benchmark) only have 2.0! Other than games, graphics apps must be coded to utilize full bandwidth offered by a 3.0 x8/16 interface. Most do not.

*Buy a mobo with 2 x16 slots. This is your entry into Crossfire.

*THIS IS DDR3 MEMORY, NOT GDDR3! GPU-Z will incorrectly spec the card at GDDR3, which is actually DDR2 tech + graphics features. It is really DDR3, which is not bad. Many manufacturers skipped GDDR4, which only lasted months before GDDR5 came out; both of which are DDR3 tech + graphics features. Do not feel like you are getting ripped off. It is just not cutting edge.

*This may be a good buy right now given the fact that DDR4 mobos came out. DDR4 point-to-point architecture may change video cards soon. I would not go out and buy a 500 dollar card without asking some hard questions. This Christmas until Summer 2015 may be product dump time.

*This works with LinuxMint/debian branch. Match your card to the mobo. Word got out in the LinuxMint forums that MSI likes to only work with MSI. There were a lot of clone makers making systems with mixed cards that got nailed.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Works better than I expected. Some cards will play MW2 but not Sniper Elite V2. This one had no problems. Was surprised at its performance. Very good mid level gaming.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Switched to a GT 630 just to compare. The 240 played better.

5 out of 5 eggsR7-240

Pros: I purchased this video card with the intention of using it for photo and video editing. I use Photoshop, Lightroom, Premier, and after effects and on-board graphics only take it so far. This card does so much more. After effects no longer lags. The 100mm fan gets the job done. It can get a little noisy after intensive use however I don't care about it.

Cons: The bezel / cover is really silly as most are. Not needed.

Other Thoughts: Great card if you are on a budget! I would recommend this over and over again.
