SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 270X DirectX 11.2 100364L 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5
  • Boost Clock 1070MHz
  • 1 x DVI-I, 1 x DVI-D 1 x HDMI 1 x DisplayPort
  • 1280 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 3.0 x16

Pros:

Great card, smaller form factor than most. Plays most games on highest or next to highest graphics settings. I played Tomb Raider on Ultra and averaged 50 fps. It's quiet, after long periods of gaming the fans can be heard a little bit but nowhere near intolerable.

Cons:

The drivers are buggy. I can't play Crysis 2 on DX11 fullscreen. StarCraft 2 will flash my monitor as if someone unplugged and plugged back in my cable, I can only play FC3 on medium with DX11. Can't play Deus Ex: HR in DX9, DX11 is sometimes choppy even with settings lowered.

Other Thoughts:

I gave the card 4 starts because the card itself is fine, but took an egg off for drivers. The games I mentioned are the only ones I have had trouble with. Tomb Raider 2013, Crysis 3, RAGE, Both Dead Island games, Singularity, Alien vs Predator (just to name a few) have all worked flawlessly. Hopefully driver updates in the future will correct the problems with the other games. Having said that, every other game I've played runs great without fail!
