ASUS R7 200 Radeon R7 250 DirectX 11.2 R7250-1GD5 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Plug-in Card Video Card
  • 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5
  • Core Clock 1000 MHz
  • Boost Clock 1050MHz
  • 1 x DVI-D 1 x HDMI
  • 384 Stream Processors
  • PCI Express 3.0

Pros:

Runs very well, doesn't get too hot, and I like how it's backwards compatible with older PCI-Express standards.

Cons:

None, but see Other Thoughts

Other Thoughts:

I came in here asking about whether this thing would run Dual Graphics with the on-chip integrated GPU before I bought this thing, and on the day that I got it and installed it, I found out that it didn't, so I set the card as the primary video adapter. I also had issues with the drivers and software that I had, because the R7-250 wasn't supported with whatever drivers I had ... because in older (DX9.0c) games like The Sims 2 Apartment Life, using new drivers causes all of the Sims' shadows to appear as black squares when they are indoors. Running other games work fine, just as long as you don't stick them on "Ultra" settings. Let the Catalyst manager determine "your" fate. Although sometimes when I want to call up the Catalyst Control Center, it goes AWOL -- the program silently crashes without giving me any warnings. And I'm not sure what's worse, the motherboard, or GPU-Z's reporting that my card is running at PCI-E x8 speeds?

I also tried to do some Folding@Home on it but the first ever project to be run on this GPU got blown to pieces when the FAHClient reported a "BAD WORK UNIT" with just 3 hours left on it. Besides that, every time I run it, everything lags on my desktop, and I can't play my games until I've stopped the client.

And I like how it doesn't have a PCIE Power connector. Which makes my 550W power supply just sad. :(
