Pros: -Plug and play
-Easily runs anything I throw at it
Cons: -I guess the led light is strange? But I does help to know when everything is actually out of power if you’re going to switch something in the build or cable manage without actually hurting your parts or something
Overall Review: Pretty great overall
Pros: - Low power requirements (6 pin)
- Runs pretty cool and very silent.
- The esthetics of the card are nice, with a backplate
- Gives an acceptable frame-rate in most games at 1080p.
Cons: - It's a GTX 1650 overclocked. It's not quite as good as a GTX 1650 super but it does a good job otherwise. It's better than a GTX 1050ti and in between the RX 570 and RX 580 in terms of performance.
- Currently expensive and until recently, you had to buy it as part of a bundle. Price seems to be coming down though. Bear in mind that GTX 1650s non-super used to cost around 200$ pre-covid/pre-shortage. So take that into consideration when looking at the current price.
- This card is physically larger than your typical GTX 1650, but that's in-line with the "TUF Gaming" theme of the AIB.
- The backplate is plastic -- for thermal performance, you want to have a non-conductive metal plate ideally. But it's pretty cool as is thermally.
Overall Review: - I strongly recommend if you want a solid general purpose card.
- Maxxed out, it hovers around 65 degrees C so it's pretty cool
Pros: - H*ly backplate batman!
- 6pin Molex connector.
- Actually pretty quiet!
Cons: - No sexy lighting? Idk if that's even worthy of a con... It does have that ominous white single-LED light everyone complains about. But it's really of no significance to me..
Overall Review: Saw this puppy. Got it shipped to my front door for $300. I mean yeah, it's got 4GB of memory but you know what.. I'm not looking for anything too fancy right meow. Plays all the games I play without missing a beat. NFS heat on Ultra, RE:Village on Medium/high AC:Odyssey on High. No complaints whatsoever here.
I'm a graphic designer as well. Handles complex vector-based illustrations & animations (within Adobe Illustrator & Animate respectively) seamlessly.. might upgrade when I've got a bigger budget and higher demands.. But for now, this is smooth as silk!
Pros: This card installs easy because its not too long. It handles the bandwith and overclocks like a dream. Software helps configure with no voltage increase this card hits much higher bandwiths than advertised.
Cons: No cons yet
Overall Review: Newegg Special pricing cought my attention and the DDR6 ram is killer.
Cons: None yet discovered
Overall Review: Good "Affordable' graphics card for older system. Installed without an issue. I only installed the drivers portion from ASUS skipping the tuning application. Fortunately it has been quiet while definitely adding a boost to the video performance.
Pros: - Massive upgrade for Lightroom usage from a GT 730
Overall Review: Definitely recommended! Great product.
Pros: Fans are pretty quiet
Small form factor
Nice design with backplate
OC out the box
Cons: LED that stays on after system powers off. That's it really
Overall Review: Great card for budget gamers especially with the upgraded GDDR6. Actually does better than expected in games once you messed with the settings if you so choose. Overall great card can't complain does what i need it for.
Pros: Good price for a overclocked gc
Not power hungry, requires only 300 watt pcu
Power cable is standard, able to use extra cable that came with my pcu
Nvidia and Asus make it easy to get drivers and software.
Asus software makes it easy to 'overclock' card
Exceeds listed stats in my system. Gpu benchmarked at 2.1 mhz, and will run oc'd at 1.9.
Able to play mid tier graphics games at highest graphics
Installs very easily on a TUF gaming atx mb and could fit a matx mv
Matches design of TUF mb
Fans are quiet at low/med speed, didn't increase system noise
Cons: There is a white led by the power cable stays on even when system is powered off.
Kinda disappointed that there's no rgb's since this is TUF branded.
Overall Review: I was floored by the size of this thing. I was expecting something about the size of an hdd. I love this thing. It's my favorite part of my build.
Someone mentioned their system wasn't seeing card after installing. I ran into this issue but I did not fully push the card into the PCI slot. So make sure card is fully seated if system doesn't recognize it at first.
