2 out of 5 eggsproblems out of box

Pros: good, solid card. quiet, seemed to stay cool even in a semi-hot room.

Great AMD support and drivers, played all my games well when it worked.

Cons: Had graphical oddities right out of the box, with a clean windows install. They got worse as time went on (2nd month having the card) until culminating in blue screens.

had to switch back to my old nVidia card.....my first experience with MSi/AMD cards was not a good one and I am disappointed in this. I thought switching to an AMD card would have less issues with my AMD chip but alas, OOB issues struck!

Other Thoughts: the free games coupon is a nice touch. this card seems like it would be great if it didn't have issues right out of the box.

5 out of 5 eggsA great budget card

Pros: For 150 dollars, this is the best video card for the money.

Cons: Not a R9 270

Other Thoughts: I could only spend 150 dollars on a video card. It was totally worth it! I wish it was a R9 270, but I am happy with what I got

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive Card!

Pros: I bought one to upgrade my elder brother's PC so he could play Starcraft 2 without lagging everyone else out. It worked VERY well.

He is currently playing the new Wolfenstein at just below the max settings on a 1920x1080 monitor. It looks impressive!

I then bought a second one to replace my friends card, which did almost go up in smoke literally.

The price is too GOOD! 256 bit with 2 GB at this price range!?! You will be hard pressed to match it for the price.

Cons: Its big, not huge but big but then again most cards ARE big in this price range, most are in fact bigger so might now even count as a negative in my opinion.

It is not powerful enough to play the latest games on MAX without some lag but one step below on a 'decent' spec computer and you will have no issues what-so-ever!

Pros: great performance for this price range, silent and cool.

Cons: none at all.

Other Thoughts: This is just an updated review as i have had the time to properly test this card in my system. i ran a benchmark in BF3 using the running down the hill scene from operation guillotine and the results are pretty good.

High 29/63.9/108
Ultra 29/46.9/73
OC'd to 1050mhz/1500mhz:
High: 29/65.6/111
Ultra: 29/50/80

This is using a amd 6800k OC;d to 4.6 at 1080p resolution.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Well.. it sorta works.... specs looked awesome! Games do run better without crashes or freezes.

Cons: Photoshop no longer works and states I should update my graphics card driver. My system states it is up to date. Very poor documentation on installation (quick guide in tiny, tiny lettering), no manual, no software, just a driver on the disk that my system (Win 7) recognizes. The MSI site does not list this card on it's site so no online manual, instructions, or additional drivers or information is available that I can find. I no longer have any control over my monitor through graphics software as I did when using the on-board video.

Other Thoughts: MSI could really help me out if they would just list available options (manuals, software, drivers) that was accessible through my registration of this product. Many other vendors do this.

I am looking at new components and will likely steer clear of MSI unless I see some improvement.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Card

Pros: This card is amazing for the price and for anyone who is looking to get into gaming. You can play the latest games on Ultra and get about 100-120 fps on custom settings. On BF4 I get around 120fps with mantle enabled and could not be happier. The price is amazing for this sort of card and it comes with MSI Afterburner which is great with overclocking. I have just been playing around with the clocks so I can not say much about it until I fully understand overclocking. I run this with my FX 6300 on a Thermaltake TR2 430W PSU. The two make a great pair for any budget gamer. Please consider this card over the R7 260x just because the difference is amazing. This card only gets about 50 degrees Celsius when under max load and has been gaming for hours. The fan is quiet, however I don't understand why people care that much. If you are looking at another brand of r7 265, don't. You've found your card. Cheap, amazing and worth every penny, especially with someone on a tight budget.

Cons: none at all

1 out of 5 eggsMore trouble than its worth.

Pros: The idea of it working would be nice.

Cons: I have spent the past 8 hours trying to get the drivers to install correctly. I've searched forums. I've looked at youtube channels. In the end, I'm still unable to get this card working. I like ATI. I've bought a few cards through them. This has been a horrible experience. I'm not sure what else to do other than send it back for a refund. It shouldn't be this complicated.

Other Thoughts: Come on, ATI.
