MSI R9 280X GAMING 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: many

Cons: lots of comments regarding fan noise. i have not had that experience so perhaps it's not inherent in the design, but rather bad fans that should be rma'd.

Other Thoughts: - Ramp: don't be highly disappointed, it's a faulty card. they aren't going to deliberately offer a product that pops and stutters. that's why there is an rma process. use it.
- N/A & Kotor: this is one of the shorter 280x cards.
- Epicon: really? if it's THAT bad your friend should be posting.
- roguecatfish: you're going to give a bad rating because you misinterpret ads? also, amd never stated there was any game bundle. in fact, every review i read before purchasing stated the r series would not have a bundle, at least not initially while there were 7 series cards still in the channel which needed to be sold.
- N/A (second one): voltage adj is disabled by default for safety reasons. you can enable it using the supplier afterburner utility and enable it.

while there are certainly issues that crop up with any card and deserve mention, people should take the time to familiarize themselves with products rather than simply trashing it out of ignorance.

MSI R9 280X GAMING 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * Great Cooling - max 66 deg C under torture tests right out of the box (not burned in) with fan on auto.
* Quiet - Cannot hear at all on the floor 2 ft away from me.
* Reasonable overclock right out of the box.
* It matches my MSI Gaming board lol...
* Comes with a flexible Crossfire connector
*msi Konbustor and AFTERBURNER software is useful. also comes with a utility to record your in game footage.

Cons: It's already sold out @ newegg? other than that I haven't really found any. Sure, it's 97% an HD 7970 (afterburner shows it's a 7970), but we all knew that going in, and it's at a better price point. It's a little different than other 280x cards as it has 1xDVI, 1xHDMI, and 2X miniDP. MSI does include a miniDP to DP adapter, although I'm not sure that's very useful. A miniDP to VGA or DVI would seem much more practical. That's about as negative as I can get at this time.

Other Thoughts: while the older 7970 is almost the exact card and comes with a game bundle (mostly older games; newest tomb raider & far cry 3), it's anywhere from $20-$40 more, although I do see on newegg this card is already out of stock.. it's faster than a gtx 760 I just installed (the gtx is also $50 less), but with 100mhz overclock this trades blows with the much more expensive gtx 770, so it's a great value. at 5760x1080 it avg 50fps on highest settings (16x af, no aa) on Bioshock Infinite, and a more modest 29 fps on Metro LL - very playable for SP.

TPU did a review on this card and stated the card runs very hot, and the VR circuit overheats throttling the card. This was not my experience at all with the card as it never exceeded 66C running Metro LL for an hour - and this is inside a closed case (Fractal Desigh Arc Midi R2).

Overall it's aesthetically pleasing, runs cool & quiet and offers excellent performance and value. I really can't fault this card in any way, esp at this pricepoint.
