Great deal while on sale for $180 07/05/2014
Good GPU for the cost
Was on sale for $180 with 2 free games
limited Vram might be a issue later on
Doesn't meet the recommended requirements of some newer games.
I bought this GPU while on sale to put into my back up rig...
I'm using this GPU in my general use PC. It's overkill for its intended purpose, but it's nice to know I have such a powerful GPU as a back up if my main rig (4770k/780/16gb) 780 ever has to be sent in for repairs.
This GPU is held back by my 8320, not the other way around. I would happily use it in my main gaming rig.
IMO you don't need much more power in a AMD system since the FX cpu will hold back this level of GPU from hitting its full potential.
*If I were buying a R9 270x for my main system, I'd stick to the 4gb models for future proofing.
