1 out of 5 eggsMsi 270x

Pros: Beautiful graphics card! Older Msi cards work great still.(550 ti Cyclone editions)

Cons: Took a chance with a open box Msi 270x card. Wouldn't boot properly(would get just a blue screen?)But its an open box buy so thats okay(Rma). Always loved the look of the Msi cards so I was shopping around on newegg for another card from Msi. To my shock I've found soo many bad reviews from their line of R9 cards from coil whine,defectiveness, artifacts etc...I cannot recommend them for this line up now. The only way to get Msi to change their quality control is DON'T BUY IT! Vote with your dollars on another brand with good reviews. None of this is Neweggs fault. I will purchase at least 1 more card from them soon as long as they take care of their customers.

Other Thoughts: Remember these cards are manufactured in China so their not going to be able to fix this problem. Even if they respond to this review from their main office probably in California will still not do anything from them selling you a defective product. Word of Mouth travels faster than you think MSI...remember that!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: This Graphics Card actually surprised me. I was expecting it to be able to play most games at high, but honestly I haven't had a single game lag on me! I was expecting less but got more.

It also only runs at about 47C under full load

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: looks sexy. black and red!
quiet
my room temperature is 27C, It never over 54C. what a beast.
Memory vendor is hynix. easily overclockable 1100/1500.
You can sell game coupon for $20~25

Will do crossfire in the future

Cons: Msi rebate.. You have to submit it within 15 days of purchase. It's so tight.
It should be within 15~30 days of "Delivered"

Other Thoughts: When you send the rebate,
Don't send a newegg packing list! They will deny it, but they give you one more chance to resubmit. (using fax)
Send a Newegg Invoice in your order history.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great card for the performance and price

Cons: Although not a con, just a fault in my system, the card is huge and I had to move some cords around to get the card to fit.

1 out of 5 eggsNot impressed.

Pros: Great card! When it works..

Cons: Unfortunately after the second day I began running into artifact issues that persist. Had to underclock the card to get it to work properly without all the graphical issues. Latest driver/vbios didn't help solve the issue. I love MSI but I don't know what they were thinking when working on the 270X line.

Other Thoughts: I should've gone with my gut and not gotten this card, but went with it anyway just because of the MSI brand. Not really interested in RMAing it for a card of the same type since it's a manufacturing issue with this line of GPUs. Kind of let down.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card, fair price

Pros: The card worked as expected. Gets nearly the same framerates as a 760 at significantly less of a price.

Great temps

Quiet!

Looks pretty fancy aswell!

Cons: AMD drivers can sometimes be annoying, but overall they are really not that bad.

Some issues with dual monitors. These may be fixed though, as I haven't tried again in a while, because the card is only 2gb anyways.

Other Thoughts: Get this card if you're on a budget. If you can, consider moving to a 280x or a 290, as those cards are great deals. I have moved on to a gigabyte 290 that was on sale, as this card was not what i wanted, and it was a poor purchase on my side.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat while it worked

Pros: Ran everything I threw at it on high settings perfectly

Cons: Card stopped working after about 6 months of use. Screen started locking up while playing games turning white or red. Then it would go black at randoms times, with audio still working. Now it goes black before I can even load windows all the way and even while in the bios. I've read this is a fairly common issue with these cards so I would steer clear from all R9 series cards.

3 out of 5 eggsGood card but not for me

Pros: Fast card, can handle most games on max settings.
Also it is beautiful and stays cool.
Best part, it is MSI and allows you to overclock with Afterburner

Cons: I got a bad card. After one night of use, it started having a 3 in x 3 in augmented pixel square. It would turn white and black and change colors frequently. Although it was a good card I had to RMA it.
