Pros: Run 3d like a champ
Cons: I purchased this card a few weeks ago and everything went fine with the installation. Then I started to notice graphical static flicker when browsing internet, watching videos or using 2d apps. I tried updating drivers and bios, anything I could do to alleviate the issue with no luck. So I RMA'd the card and the new card arrived and displays the same issues.
I've researched the internet far and wide for solutions. Apparently this issue is occurring with multiple different R9 cards from multiple different manufacturers. There is as of yet no solution to this issue that I could find.
All users don't have this issue so I imagine there are other hardware factors that make this issue bubble to the surface. Ultimately if you buy this card you are taking a risk that you will have this issue.
Other Thoughts: I did contact MSI about the issue and they simply recommended the RMA so I don't think they are interested in investigating any hardware incompatibility that could be causing this. I'm going to contact AMD next to see what they have to say.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have had no issues with this card in terms of installation and setup
Cons: I feel for my system I should be getting better frame rates. I primarily use my computer for playing World of Warcraft and with the settings maxed out I'm only getting about 10-20 FPS in certain areas. For the amount of memory and the price tag on this card, playing a game that is 5 years old and getting these kind of framerates is sad.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS M3A79-T Deluxe AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Easy to install. I simply just plugged in all the parts and it worked.
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: I have my computer set up with the operating system on one hard drive and then two other hard drives set up for raid config to avoid data loss. When I initially set up windows I wasn't going to worry about the raid(as my operating system was not going to be installed on it) but came to discover that when I did set up the raid it would cause the windows operating system on the single drive to blue screen. Lesson Learned: Build your raid first, then install windows. Even if your operating system isn't going on a raid drive.READ FULL REVIEW
