The MSI R9 270 GAMING 2G (V305) Radeon R9 270 delivers competitive performance and great value, perfect for those seeking 1080p gameplay at maximum settings. It's based on the highly acclaimed AMD 28nm GCN architecture and boasts DirectX 11.2 support, giving you the power to drive today’s hottest games — and tomorrow’s. With Ultra Resolution Gaming you can leave HD in the dust by gaming on displays much, much larger. Whether using a 4k monitor or combining multiple HD monitors, you’ll get an expansive experience that’s truly out of sight. A rich set of AMD innovative technologies is included, such as App Acceleration, AMD PowerTune, AMD ZeroCore, and AMD HD3D technology. With these technology advancements, you'll get more than one way to elevate your gaming experience.

This graphics card offers more with innovative MSI gaming series features such as a TWIN FROZR IV cooler, military class components, and more.

  • newegg ADVANCED TWIN FROZR IV MSI's Twin Frozr has been the industry-defining graphics card cooler. The first Twin Frozr kicked of the dual-fan trend and today MSI stays true to its dual-fan dual-slot design, where others have to resort to less effective means. The other part that the Twin Frozr cooler uses is a large aluminum fin grid array that provides a huge amount of surface area for cooling. Heat from the GPU is transferred to the fin grid array by virtue of heat pipes with MSI's special SuperPipe technology. SuperPipes transfer heat twice as fast as regular heat pipes, enabling an MSI GAMING graphics card to stay cooler than the competition. Futhermore, MSI provides all-new Airflow Control technology on the Twin Frozr. This new thermal tech leads the airflow to the heat pipe by a special deflector on the heatsink, so it can deflect more airflow to the heat pipes directly. In addtion, this exclusive heatsink design increases the area of the heatsink, so it enhances the dissipation efficiency much more.
  • newegg MILITARY CLASS COMPONENT One of the deciding factors in performance is the quality of the components used. That is why MSI only uses MIL-STD-810G certified components for its gaming cards because only these components have proven to be able to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking. SOLID CAP - One With their aluminum core design, Solid CAP's have been a staple in high-end design mainboard designs and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as its over-10-year lifespan. Hi-C CAP - A Hi-c CAP is a very small, but super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. NEW SUPER FERRITE CHOKES - New Super Ferrite Chokes use a Ferrite core that is Super-Permeable. This allows the Super Ferrite Chokes to run at a 35°C lower temperature, have a 30% higher current capacity, a 20% improvement in power efficiency and better overclocking power stability.
  • newegg GAMING APP A lightweight, easy-to-use OC tool, the Gaming App allows you to switch between OC Mode, Gaming Mode, and Silent Mode with one press of a button. Each mode has an individual pre-defined Base Clock and Boost Clock to meet different play scenarios.
  • newegg EXPERIENCE - PREDATOR A built-in screen and video capturing tool named Predator captures your screen as still images or videos with the push of a button. So you can capture and record your coolest, goofiest and most awesome gaming moments on your PC!
  • newegg AFTERBURNER MSI Afterburner has quickly become the favorite overclocking software for media, overclockers and end-users. Because of its simple interface, it's easy to learn, but it packs a lot of powerful features like an integrated benchmark utility called Kombustor that can check your system performance in benchmarking mode, or run as a stability test. Don't speak English? No problem: MSI Afterburner is translated in many languages including Russian, Spanish, Chinese, and Korean! Not satisfied with the looks? Just change to one of the many different skins or create one yourself with ease! Even better, you can run Afterburner straight from your smartphone! Download the MSI Afterburner App from Google Play or the Apple store, and start overclocking wit.

4 out of 5 eggsPleasent change

Pros: 256bit DDR5 on a sub$200 card
MSI designed
Those big ole twin frozr fan wont allow any heated air to 'linger' around the graphics card.

Cons: The card itself? None.
Manufacturer? Flawless.
Retailer? That is a different story.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg waits 4 days to process order. (and made-it so I couldn't get in on that MSI rebate)
Wanted express shipping but NewEgg system states since this will be shipped via ground we've changed your shipping method to 'ground'. WTH, go to select express shipping again and now the shipping price has doubled from $15&change to $30&change. Shady NewEgg, Shady.

Ace card. Got tired of looking at 3 or 4 different nVidia cards of the same model, costing an extra $100 for comparable performance. Different ram bitrates, clock speeds and total ram..no thx. Have not used ATI (AMD) since 9000pro (1st gfx card was a 3d rage pro with a whole 4mb!). Thought I'd never go back-to ATI but here I am, wide-eyed&mystified of what a great-deal I got with this card from MSI

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plays games at high settings and is quiet. No problems running games with a high fps and easily does video+ on dual monitors

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: got it with a rebate for $140 which was a great deal. Even at about $170 which seems to be the standard price people are saying its a good value.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fantastic card. Read great things about it so I got one for my new build to see how it all panned out and I LOVE what I am seeing from it. Fantastic picture, running dual 1080p touchscreen monitors and not complaining for an instant on it. New build so I don't have all my games installed yet so I can't comment on any specific performance numbers, but I like what I see so far.

Cons: MSi didn't like my rebate form for some reason, it got denied, but I'm not going to cry over a $20 rebate. also the color didn't match my build, but again that doesn't knock off an egg to me.

Other Thoughts: Red color and gaming series logo would match great to any red themed gaming build like most people do, mine is just a blue build so it adds a little 'MURICA! twist to it I guess.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great card for the price I paid. This is truly one of those best bang for your buck type cards and with the prices coming down even more and rebates added you can get two for almost the price of yesterday's one when these first came out.

Cons: No cons for me to report

Other Thoughts: The cooling fans can be a bit loud when running full tilt, but for me at least I know they're working

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Can run anything I throw at it (Skyrim on Ultra High), Eve Online (High Graphics), Battlefield 4, Gary's Mod, and more.

Silent. I have never heard a peep from it.

Cool looking!

Cons: A bit bulky, but for what it is, I expected it.

Other Thoughts: If you have any doubts, ignore them. I was worried at first about this card being able to support the games I play, but after giving in and purchasing it, I have not regretted that decision yet.

The more expensive cards are more powerful, yes, but games haven't caught up with them and you have a few more years before they will. This card is low-priced and works fantastically.

Buy it.

4 out of 5 eggsSucks...Power

Pros: Extreme, by far the most extreme graphics card I've owned.

These look like cadillacs when you open them, great packaging, excellent style. I love the looks!

Cons: MSI Graphics Card Problems
1. Fans are all the same - previous graphics cards have had fan problems, these look like the same fans
2. Some fan shrouds are covered in oil after using them for the first 48 hrs.
3. The Heat is massive (but manageable)
4. The POWER required is HUGE. I burned out my motherboard power connector powering two of these plus a PCIe Sound card and another two graphics cards. (too much fun).

Other Thoughts: I'd stay away until they redesign the fans. I've had to send in 2 out of 3 of the previous graphics cards I had and I already saw the problems starting on these only 1 month after I purchased them. MSI will replace them with "USED, but REFURBISHED" ones, but that's not the same. When you buy a new card, you shouldn't have to be stuck without it for weeks, then get a used card back.

So I'd stay away from this card until they change the fan. I'd rate 1/5 eggs, but these actually worked nearly the entire time I had them. I sold them a few months ago.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: Easy installation, Runs Cool, Decent drivers, Great Performance. Will Run BF4 On ultra 1080p as long as your CPU will keep up with it. Great bang for your buck. Pretty low TDP considering the power it has

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: - Make sure you have enough room in your case.
- If you're torn between this and a GTX 660, definitely go with the 270, my friend has a Gigabyte GTX 660, I paid less for this and get better performance .

5 out of 5 eggsOverclocked to R9 270X

Pros: 1) Quiet
2) Minimum fan speed is not restricted to it can be adjusted to as low of a level as you want.
3) Overclocked to R9 270X levels
4) Great value if on sale

Cons: 1) Instability when overclocked too high will cause computer to crash and restart.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card with promo code and rebate which came out to be a great value for mid to high range card. I could play last year's games, like Borderlands 2, and earlier at 1080p with maximum fps at 60 and minimum at 25. When overclocked, this R9 270 comes up to R9 270x levels and can play the same games with elevated minimum fps. It is interesting to note that on AMD cards that I have owned, they will crash and restart your computer if overclocked too high. NVIDIA cards will crash just the program. This is a bit of an annoyance but it's not worth taking an egg off. My overclocked settings on MSI Afterburner are below:

Power Limit: +20
Core Clock: 1105
Memory Clock: 1565

5 out of 5 eggsR9 270

Pros: Good price performance ratio, and great for budget builds. Card runs cool and quiet.

Cons: I didn't card for how the power cable hung from the card. It made cable management look a bit sloppy up front.
