Pros: Working perfectly now!
Cons: It's not more powerful than it already is?
Other Thoughts: Never mind, I got it up to X16. This card is perfect. ^-^READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Card was in like-new condition(remove-before-use sticker still on top)
Gives exactly the performance advertised(kind of-see below)
Came with everything(that I know of)
XFX approved the lifetime warranty(with registration)
Plays Skyrim smoothly on High with some ultra settings
WEI rating of 7.4 out of 7.9
Cons: I can't get it to run at x16, but it doesn't matter as it draws power externally and I doubt it overflows the data transmission lane as it is. It could also be the motherboard or an inaccurate program.
Other Thoughts: I bought this card after a month or research, comparing price/performance, heat, power, noise, size, you name it. This card was head and shoulders above the rest with the refurbished price tag. It plays Skyrim perfectly on near-ultra settings at 1080p, and I only took it off of ultra because battles in the vast plains near a river with a bunch of enemies jittered a little bit, though it was unquestionably still enjoyable. If it matters that much to you, just download some mods that improve the visuals without impacting performance and get better-than-ultra graphics instead.
This card powers through every thing I've tried without breaking a sweat, and matches the performance of one 50 dollars more. With good case airflow blowing on it and a program to let it go above 60% fan speed, I'm sure it would run very cool and could work even faster.
This card was perfect for me, I imagine it might be for you too.

Pros: Very fast, boot time ~3 seconds past the BIOS
No lag in drive-intensive usage
Handles everything we can throw at it perfectly
Cons: Isn't the best performance for the price
Other Thoughts: If you can get it on sale, jump on it. It's an SSD, what else can I say.READ FULL REVIEW
