1 out of 5 eggsBad Egg

Pros: ???? NONE????

Cons: Owned Card for 1 month exactly. Then it died.

600+ dollar investment didn't last a month :*(

Other Thoughts: MSI,
I bought your card expecting a good product as I have in the past. I even went the distance to buy a water cooler for it from XSPC because I KNOW this card runs hot and I your single fan is EXTREMELY LOUD while playing BF4 for hours.
This cards peak temp was 50C and it was silent as ever.
Today during normal usage, I had a single black line (vertical) flash for a quick second. and then horizontal lines to a black screen. Now, every time i boot into windows. after about 15 seconds i get a wall of horizontal lines and an immediate black screen.
this card has not been over clocked a day in its life.
I invested $600 + a water block into this card to have it fail after a month of standard 1000/1225 usage!
I expected a better product and now im left with a non working 600 dollar paper weight. :*(

5 out of 5 eggsPrice Gougers!!

Pros: Great card. Super fast and takes anything you throw at it.

Cons: I bought this card at the beginning of december for just over $400. The price increase is ridiculous just because of crypto mining.

Not sure if its newegg making the price so high or amd. Lets hope its amd. Shame on whoever is doing it though. Really sucks for the people that want to use them for gaming.

Other Thoughts: Card gets five eggs because its awesome but price deserves one!

4 out of 5 eggsAWESOME POWER !


Cons: Ridiculously loud at 100% fan speed
Max temp allowed is 95C which gives you a space to make your fan a bit silent

Other Thoughts: Water cooling would be a great solution for this card

5 out of 5 eggsMSI My Choice for LiteCoin Mining

Pros: Having mined BitCoins for over three years; and LiteCoins for a year I have had to seek warranty repair from every major distributor. MSI warranty is three years. They have repaired numerous cards 2+ years old.

I consistently get 850 M Hashes per card with three cards in my standard build. The card consistently runs about 10'C lower then cards from other distributors.

Much better deal from NewEgg as compared to other sites.

Cons: I could do without the free game.

1 out of 5 eggs290x price, 280x performance

Pros: Looks like a R9 290x

Cons: Performes like a R9 290x
I bought 2xGigabyte, 2xSapphire and 2xMSI R290.
The gigabyte and sapphire cards mined litecoins at 950 mh/s
Both R9 290x MSI cards hashed at 780mh/s on the exact same system. over 17% slower performance. Note all cards cost the same and were marked up by new egg due to high demand.

Other Thoughts: I contacted MSI and bought this to their attention and the deflected my concerns with a "all R9 290x cards are made with the same specs. hokum! I returned these two MSI cards and bought 2 more gigabyte cards. Now all 6 cards I own are hashing at 950 MH/s

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
All of the cards are AMD reference card. The same design, the same BOM but only different brand name.
Thus, it might be related to GPU quality.

If you have any questions, please kindly get in touch with our tech support team directly at 626.271.1004 for assistance during regular business hours from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time, or you can email us at
When contacting us, please kindly include your product info, thank you.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!!

Pros: This is a powerful, powerful card. I'm mainly a sim-racer at iRacing and have a cockpit with 3 24" ASUS 2ms LED monitors. My computer is homemade with an i73770K cpu, ASRock Z77 MOBO & Corsair Vengeance ram all at stock settings. I gained an average of 45 FPS with the 13.12 drivers over my old Sapphire 7950OC with now maxxed out graphics settings. Temp wise I'm seeing 82C at the end of sessions and while the fan can be noisy at full speed it's not an issue so far. No buyers remorse after dropping $600+ on a video card.

Cons: Only the price so far!

Other Thoughts: Glad I went for it!!!
