5 out of 5 eggsThis is the BEST budget GPU!!!

Pros: This card is awesome, don't be fooled by the other reviews!

Pro:

Plays all modern games (Crysis 3, Thief, Battlefield 4, Tomb Raider 2013, Batman: Arkham Origins, Skyrim, Grid 2, etc.) at 1080p (1920x1080 resolution) on medium to high settings, and even ultra settings in some games.

FPS (frames per second):

All games 40 to 60 fps AVERAGE! that is amazing for a budget card like this. Check out my benchmark video for proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJLjjN77aCs

Heat:

It stays around 55 degrees F at full load (tested temps with Crysis 3 and Firestrike) and only 31 degrees at idle. That is super low, you don't want most GPUs to go over 80 degrees F. So this gpu is way in the safe zone.

Fan Noise:

Very quite, honestly. You will only start to hear the fan if you turn the fan speed up to 80 or 100 %.

Other Thoughts (My system specs):

Rosewill Challenger Black (mid-tower)
MSI A78M-E35 (motherboard)
AMD Athalon X4 750 3.4 ghz. (CPU)
Kingston Hyperx Fury 2x4 gb. (8 gb. total RAM)
Western Digital Blue 1 tb 7200 rpm (hard drive)
Corsair CX 500w modular (power supply)

Cons: Cons: None. Seriously, none.

2 out of 5 eggsExpected Better From MSI

Pros: Seemed like a good deal as I have 2 systems running MSI motherboards but am sadly disappointed with this video board.

Cons: First board went south within a month of purchase so we got an RMA at which time they couldn't repair it. They sent us another unit that was suppose to comparable or a little better and last until today (8-0-2014). Now sending this one back for a refund hopefully.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid gaming card on the cheap

Pros: Plays most games with full effects
Solid frame rates
Affordable
Decent S-Crypt miner (~220 Kh/s)
Low power (draws only 50 to 60w)
Low idle power (draws only a couple watts when not doing anything.)
Came with 2 free games

Cons: None, really. It's a great card for the price.

Other Thoughts: Bought this card because my old 3D card was slow and I wanted to play Bioshock Infinite and boy does it play it well. It also mines s-crypt coins at a reasonable pace (220Kh/s) as well considering its low power draw (50w?). You'll need to downclock the chip to 830Mhz (runs it cooler and more reliably, surprisingly) and turn up the fan.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful little card

Pros: great little card i bought this card for my wives new gaming build coming up from a nVidia gt 610 and she loves it play diablo 3 at over 150FPS at all setting at Max, plays tomb raider on ultra with 2xAA at over 100FPS. Plays Titanfall on ultra at around 90 FPS. the card stays cool the fan an the card is not flimsy like others were saying, buy this card it will serve you well.

Cons: None so far. just make sure your case is big enough because the power cable is on top of card and comes out going up. no a con just an FYI

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bang for The Buck

Pros: Excellent performance for the price. Mated this up with an AMD FX 6300 for a quite inexpensive, yet still quite capable, machine.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Like most of the "R" series Radeons, this appears to be a reworking of a prior card, in this case the HD 7790. It performs identically to the HD 7790, but for a little better price and incorporates some of the newer features of the "R" series.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Amazing performance
I could run skyrim on ultra with no lag

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: 2 fans are always better than 1, but the 1 it has does an amazing job.

5 out of 5 eggsNewEgg Rocks my World...Again

Pros: Just a positive update on the prior review..saw that this was an Iron Egg Item, called customer service- (politely and with respect) explained i understood that the extra 10 buck jump in rebate was not their fault but could they add those 2 free games currently offered as it was within the 14 day match rule.. after 60 seconds on hold..the rep said no problem and added those 2 free games..now thats how u handle customer service. Newegg all the way!

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bang for the Buck

Pros: If u read the reviews here u might be discouraged but a some of them dingd the product because they hosed up on rebates, couldnt daisy chain the thing, or bad experiences with tech support. support for tech will always be hit or miss..good days..bad days. In a nutshell, this is a midtier card, it runs at a decently cool temp, plays most games out there well, has 2 gig gddr5 albiet 128bit vs 256bit. and id about 100bucks. If u r upgrading from an old card..this is a decent card. I upgraded an older sapphire 4830. It went in easy, upgraded catalyst online and purrs like a kitten. Not sure about the guy who dinged it because of the top of card mounted power connecter, works fine in my old thermaltake M9 case and old corsair HX620 modular pwr supply

Cons: they upped the rebate by 10 bucks 2 wks after I bought mine plus added 2 free games..my loss is ur gain if u get it now. not dinging it for that..haterz gonna hate heh

Other Thoughts: MSI afterburner utilty lets u capture scrnshots and stream video as well
