5 out of 5 eggsBest Budget GPU!

Pros: Plays all modern games at MEDIUM to HIGH settings at 1080p (1920x1080) resolution! With frame rate averages of 40 to 60 fps!

Crysis 3 (Medium): 46 fps
Battlefield 4 (High): 45 fps
Tomb Raider 2013 (Ultra, No tesselation): 53 fps
Thief (High, No tesselation): 47 fps
Batman Arkham Origins (Normal/High): 55 fps
Sniper Elite 3 (Ultra, No tessellation): 53 fps
Grid 2 (Ultra, Only CMMA): 51 fps
Skyrim (Ultra w/HD texture pack installed, AF 4x): 56 fps

Fan Noise:

Very quite, you'll ONLY hear it if you manually turn the fan speed up to 80 to 100 %. If your case has good ventilation you shouldn't need to set the fan speed more than 60%.

Temperature: Stays at 55-60 degrees Celsius at full load and about 31 degrees at idle (tested temps with Crysis 3 and Firestrike).

Cons: There really aren't any. People say that the drivers don't work, or that the gpu is loud, etc.
but that is simply not true. This is an awesome gpu for the price!

Other Thoughts: My system specs:

Rosewill Challenger Black (mid-tower, 3 case fans)
AMD X4 750K 3.4 ghz. quad-core (cpu)
MSI A78-ME35 FM2+ (motherboard)
This GPU
Kingston Hyperx Fury 2x4 gb. (8 gb. total) 1600mhz. (RAM)
Western Digital Blue 1 tb. 7200 rpm (hard drive)
Corsair CX 500w modular edition (power supply)

5 out of 5 eggsMSI R7 260X OC 2GB

Pros: This card has great performance for it's 130 dollar price..Perfect for an entry level build... I was able to run BF4 on a mix of mid-high settings with 1080p and getting 40+ FPS. and this was 64 player multiplayer. This was the card i got with the first pc i ever built. you can also upgrade in the future and crossfire this card and get insane performance.

Cons: This card has no cons.

2 out of 5 eggsStill Getting Computer Black Screen

Pros: - Great on games and graphics programs like Maya, Mudbox and 3DS Max

- Quiet

Cons: - Keep getting black screen/lock ups

Other Thoughts: This is tough because it works nicely when it works. I don't even think I've tried to stress the gaming aspect of this computer yet. It's a new build since May of this year. I couldn't figure out how to avoid the computer locking up. Sometimes it would happen AFTER I'd play a non-stressed game like NFS: Hot Pursuit (which looks and moves great compare to my last graphics card). And there's no predictability to how and when it'll happen. Like say, the screensaver would go off and then I would come back in an hour or two and it would be blackscreened and forced to hard restart. And sometimes, it'll happen while just randomly surfing the internet. All the BIOS and drivers were updated, but it's still the same. The other thing is that it won't happen everyday. A week will go by and then for two days I'll have this issue. It's extremely frustrating because I'm afraid to do any work as I'll have this issue at any given time. I've been researching that it might be a driver issue, but I really don't know what to do but buy a different card.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI R7 260X

Pros: -Afterburner OC Utility
-Larger Stock Fan
-Comes OC above the typical R7 260X
-Runs my games on High/Ultra only paired with an i3 4thgen & 4GB DDR3 1600MHz (Starcraft II, Planetside 2, AvP, Guild Wars 2)

Cons: -None thus far.

Other Thoughts: It's a large card, but not nearly as bulky or long as some others, such as Radeon 7770. Easily fit on a mini-ATX board with a mid-sized tower. HDMI driver already installed, so it booted from HDMI to my TV no problem, even after a fresh build.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I am very pleased with this card. I am not a big gamer and I have very little interest in maxing graphic when I rarely play games. That in mind, this small card for under 150$ works well over my expectations.

Cons: After a few days trial of the MSI live update feature I went ape and took it off.

Other Thoughts: You can make sure not to go ape by not installing the MSI live update application.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh, Drivers suck

Pros: -Great when Works
-Quiet once have better drivers
-Cheap purchase price when on sale

Cons: -Drivers are horrible and have crash issues.
-Default Drivers it came with crashed a lot.
-Fan speed was out of control when playing games until updated to newer drivers.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these cards one for me and one for my wife so we could PC game together after a year of not being able to. The install went fine and things worked well for a few days then the driver issues started.

Both PCs have MSI mobos, E45/E35. PSU 400 watt 8gb ram.

I tested the cards in both PC's and a seperate one along with a larger 800w PSU. Nothing helped until installed the newer AMD official drivers along with the MSI afterburner program.

The cards still BSOD/Black screen on my PC when waking from idle. UIsing the MSI afterburner software you can lock the 2d memory into a slower clock speed. That will help fix this problem for the most part but I still have the black screen issue sometimes; but frankly why buy a OC card if it does notwork at even default settings?

The card is nice quality build but the drivers are bad.

5 out of 5 eggsMighty Mouse

Pros: +Short card
+Doesn't require a high wattage power supply
+Runs BF4 on MED-HIGH settings at 1080p 60FPS
+Stays cool
+Great price to performance

Cons: -Can't play BF4 at 1080p with ultra settings and get a decent frame rate... if that's important to you.

Other Thoughts: Be honest with yourself. This is a great card, but if you want every game at ultra settings, you're gonna need a better card. If you just want a solid card that can run and game at MED settings or can't afford anything better, you won't be disappointed.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: -When it works, it is awesome.
-Well made card, feels sturdy.
-Fairly quiet fan for one as big as it has. (Once have better drivers)

Cons: -The drivers....oh lord the drivers. (more below)

Other Thoughts: Well I got two of these card so my wife and I could PC game together again after not being able to for almost a year. We are both excited and get them. I install them and everything is fine on our PCs for a day or two, then it went bad.

We started both getting random lockups and PC crashs, also the card would sound like a jet engine from the fan running so fast.

So I installed the drivers from AMD website and swapped the cards along with using different power supply a friend let me borrow to test what was wrong. Here is what happened.

Both PCs are MSI Mobos one is a E45 and one a E35.
Ram is 8GB in each PC. Kingston brand.
Power Supplies are 400W.

In PC1 (My PC) the card still locks up to a black screen from system idle no matter which of the 2 R7 260xs I put in it.
PC2 (Wifes PC) Works just fine now regardless of which of the two cards it has in it.

I also tested both Mobos with a larger 800W PSU a friend let me borrow just to make sure that was not the problem. It did not make a difference in either PC.

On PC1 I can get the black screen to only happen now from a idle state by turning down the memory clock speed (why by OC if it does not work at even stock speeds).

I know I could RMA this or try to but since it is not a defective card and is a driver issue I feel that would be dishonest. It is not a bad card at all when they work. It just getting it to that point that may be a problem.

1 out of 5 eggssad to see I'm not the only one

Pros: looks cool, overclocking software looks very useful

Cons: installed and ran through set-up (looked awesome up until this point), then got lots of freezing and finally a bsod. loaded a system restore point and attempted install again. PC wont boot with card installed. Tried in other mobo and got same boot issue. tested pci slot used with older video card and is what im currently using.

Research leads me to believe this is a common problem with the model.

Other Thoughts: CPU: AMD Athelon X4 740X
Mobo: ASUS F2 A85-M pro
RAM: 10gb
Power Supply: RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W
OS: Windows 7 64-bit

with the "$100" in steam games, my total refund will only be $20 and thats before any shipping/restocking fees. The free games available come nowhere close to adding up to $100...in fact tomb raider was $5. When i was looking through selection of games most (not all) were out of date with nearly dead multiplayers.

Very upset with this purchase
