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.

2 out of 5 eggsWonderful Card, Multitude of Problems

Pros: Card ran pretty much everything I threw at it. Ran a 3D Mark test and the card performed well for its price point.
The card is also silent. I could barely hear it running even while testing it with 3D Mark. For gaming this is the best card for the price as of today. It'll play pretty much any game at 60fps.

Cons: Card died after a week. Two white bars appeared on the screen when trying to boot. Left my comp running with nothing graphically intensive on over a couple of days to download games from steam. Could be because of the manufacturer, or it might be my case. But, I highly doubt it could have been the case due to excessive measures to make sure everything ran cold. I used the Cooler Master N200 for my build.

Other Thoughts: Great card, but it died within a week for me. Results may vary.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card - supports 4 monitors, ignorant MSI support

Pros: Fast, easy install - supports FOUR (4) monitors (although pre and post support did not know this).

Cons: Ignorant pre AND post sale support

Other Thoughts: This is my second R9 270x Gaming card. I had to replace an older 6870 that stopped 3 months before the 3 year warranty (so it will be replaced), but I needed a card until my replacement--so I got a 2nd R9 270x (since I can use BOTH in the other machine when the rma replacement arrives).

However, I wanted to know if it would support four (4) monitors--since that is how I had my previous 6870 configured. First, I sent an email to "pre-sale" support (since this was a pre-sale question and if it did not--I wanted to know which other card would support 4 monitors). Pre-sale support said, "Sorry, this is a presale form..." Useless response, so I ripped on them and they finally replied back, "The card has Dual-link DVI-I x 1, Dual-link DVI-D x 1, HDMI x 1 (version 1.4a), DisplayPort x 1, which can only perform triple output since you can only have 2 legacy output plus 1 displayport output."

Meaning, no - it supports 3 monitors. In the meantime, while waiting for my pre-sale response (took 2 days for the email), I had called tech support. He first said 4, then couldn't even help me to get three working (I realized it required a re-boot--but he didn't catch that), then he checked with someone else and said, no--it only supports three.

Both pre and post-sale support was WRONG. It supports 4 monitors (one to each connection, but the connection to the displayport requires an ACTIVE adapter (that has a timing chip in the adapter)). I had two of these from my previous (just needed to get a mini to displayport adapter) and it worked--all FOUR.

So, the card is great--even better since the card WILL support FOUR monitors (I have three 24" monitors and a 32" HD TV monitor on the wall (at the same resolution)).

The problem is not the card--it is the support - don't even know their own product. Plus, the product manager needs to put (Supports 4 monitors (with correct adapters)) on the BOX and the website.

5 out of 5 eggsThe definition of a bang for your buck graphics card

Pros: Installation was simple, just popped it in my PCI-Express slot, plugged in the power connectors from my power supply, and turned on my PC and the fans spinned up and my PC was able to recognize it with no issues.

After installing the latest drivers from AMD, I decided to test drive a few games. I played The Witcher 2, Dark Souls 2, The Battlefield Hardline Beta, and Dota 2 and the performance in all of them were excellent! 1080p AND 60FPS with the graphical settings turned to the absolute maximum (except for Ubersampling in Witcher 2, but even high end cards like the GTX 780 has trouble with that setting as well.)

It also runs considerably cooler and quieter than my old ATi Radeon 4870. I used to have an average of around 62-65C when idle and 70-81C under full load with the fan sounding like a jet engine under full gaming stress. However, this R9 270X in particular with it's Twinfrozr cooler design makes it run idle at 30-32C and under full load at around 62-64C and even under full load with the fan speeds at 100%, it's still barely audible!

For $150 when this graphics card was on sale, this card definitely is a great bang for your buck if you're looking to upgrade without spending a fortune.

Cons: Haven't had any problems so far and it performs like a champ in all my PC games and applications. I guess the only downside to this card is that it didn't come with any case stickers or badges but I'm not deducting points for that.

Other Thoughts: This card is HUGE! It barely fits in my mid tower Raidmax Smilodon, so make sure you have enough space in your computer case so this graphics card can fit in there. Also, it requires two 6-pin PCI-Express power cables to power this beast so make sure your power supply is adequate as well.
