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.

Other Thoughts:

I bought this GPU while on sale to put into my back up rig...

FX 8320
8gb 1600
Win7 64

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.
