The MSI R9 270X GAMING 2G ITX Radeon R9 270X 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 RADAX fan, military class components, and more.

  • newegg Designed for the ITX Platform The model is designed for use with a min-ITX motherboard, making it a great choice for HTPCs or other space-constrained conditions.
  • newegg RADAX fan The new MSI RADAX fan is the first true hybrid Radial/Axial fan and can be found on our mini-ITX GAMING models. It combines the best characteristics of these fan types in one single fan, and allows the best cooling balance in the tiny form factor of mini-ITX. The inside of the fan, based on propeller blade technology takes care of high airflow onto the heatsink. The outside of the fan scoops up additional air, and ensures that air speeds up through the heat-sink and is exhausted outward. This allows the mini-ITX GAMING graphics cards to stay cool, even when you're gaming hard on your small form factor PC.
  • 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 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. 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.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: -Great price/performance
-Looks Great
-Great packaging
-Comes with VGA adapter and 4 to 8 pin adapter
-Drivers perform well
-MSI Gaming app is neat to play with and very simple
-Maxes graphics on current gen games
-You can push the fan hard

Cons: -Can get hot ( But can work to 70c) Just make sure your case has decent airflow and you shouldn't have a problem
-Might be a tight fit in a ATX/Micro ATX case (I had to modify by back panel to get it to fit... but I also have a micro ATX board in a mid-atx case)
-Rebate makes me tear apart the pretty packaging :(

Other Thoughts: This thing is a great purchase for budget gaming! It might use a bit more power and get a bit hotter than Nvidia cards, but the performance is better and cheaper.
Only regret is that MSI makes me tear apart the box it came in to get my rebate!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Small Card

Pros: Small, Quiet, Fast...

I was hesitant because of only 1 fan, and the card uses so little power only requiring 1 six pin power connector.

At full load, I can't hear the card over my other system fans. It also runs cool and doesn't heat up my system nearly as much as my 660 GTX.

I'm using using it in a mini-itx case, but it would be awesome for that application. As some have noted, it is a little bit tall, so keep that in mind.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: great card, tempted to buy another and run them in Crossfire. From benchmarks, I think that'll put me up into R9 290X territory.

1 out of 5 eggsBoot Issues, No signal

Pros: Small in size, fits my new ITX case.

Cons: Won't boot most of the time on 2 computers, my old and my new PC. When it worked on my newer PC, the screen would go black randomly. I must have got a bad one. I already sent my rebate and it has been approved I hope I get at least the rebate. I'm going to have to return or RMA

1 out of 5 eggsSeemingly bad luck with this card.

Pros: Beautiful card and a great size for my mid-tower case. A bit thicker than expected but still fits perfectly. Runs very quiet for me compared to what some other users seem to be experiencing.

Cons: I've had this card for less than 3 months and I'm already experiencing a lot of artifacts and graphical glitches in multiple games. Ran a few tests and pushing the card to max, it's not overheating so the issue lies in the fact that I unfortunately have a faulty card. MSI is not a fun company to deal with so far in regards to filing an RMA. They make superb motherboards but I don't think I will ever buy a GPU from them again, not after my husband's 270X (full-size version of the same card) started showing some small artifacts as well.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: This is probably the most compact video card that's reasonably fast. Excellent form factor. If you're looking for something that'll fit and you don't have room for a longer card this one will do the trick.

Cons: Came DOA. In the card's intended home, the computer would not even post. Checking to see if it wasn't just a motherboard issue I tried it in another, which instantly gave the "no video card found" post beep error code.

I will probably miss out on the rebate as well because of the exchange issues. So I'll probably be out the return shipping and the MIR. Not very happy about that.

Other Thoughts: I actually have a fair number of other MSI video cards. They've been pretty good in the past. Getting one like this that's dead right out of the box is a first for me.

The exchange with newegg is already under way, will have to see how it works out in the end. Due to size limits, it's very likely that buying any other model would mean getting something a fair bit slower, so I'm giving MSI a second chance.

4 out of 5 eggsGood mid level video card

Pros: -small size
- quite and coolong, 41° c @idle
-posted and loaded drivers with no issues
-software functions well, very simple and straightforward
-came with power adapter
-solid build
- scored a 7.9 on WEI(if anyone wanted to know)
-looks really nice with my other red ram and case fan
- price, was on sale and came with free games too

Cons: -was not able place in first PCIE slot( mostly because I have a H-60 liquid cooler, that sits right over the card when I try and place the side cover back on)
-strance clicking noise from the fan , but went away after 10 minutes.

Other Thoughts: I did not know this was going to be 1/2 inch taller than my last card, an old MSI 7780 HD. Which forced me to place the card almost on top of power supply. I suppose not really a con for me , but if yo are using a pre built liq u don't cool r like myself , you will have clearing issues with a mid tower ATX. So far this card is working great ,, I have yet to fully test it. I'm running a FX_6300 w/16 gig rip jaws @1600. Also I updated the PSU from a 600 watt to a corsair 850 watt , which is a bit over kill for now .

5 out of 5 eggsVery good card

Pros: Powerful card, runs most games on max/ultra settings no problem... no excess heat, no fan screaming or whining. This thing is perfect for my mini itx build. It fits inside my small case, and has no downsides. Really solid build quality also; I had a 260X before this that was loud, not very playable on high resolution or settings. It was no-good compared to this thing. This card weighs almost twice as much as the last one, and that's because of the thick metal heatsink, backplate, and superior fan. Great job MSI.

Cons: It has a dragon, that you might not like... Also, as another reviewer said, its not blue (?)... Who cares this thing is solid.

Other Thoughts: Recommend, two thumbs up

2 out of 5 eggsOk

Pros: Was on sale and had a rebate.

Cons: Red, would have preferred blue.

Other Thoughts: I received this after the rebate postmark was due, which was only a two week window starting before I made my purchase. My claim was rejected because of this. I find it to be rather shady, all my other claims were accepted. Hope the $20 was worth it you just lost a customer. I will not be buying or recommending your products from now on.
