Just ok. 3/13/2016 7:33:33 PM

Pros: Bought it when it was on sale with a free game.

Cons: I had to bring the card back down to it's card standard settings to run without getting a black screen. Still a good card but not what I payed for.

Great After You Get it Working 6/24/2015 4:26:54 PM

Pros: It's great for most games nowadays. It's also pretty good for video rendering.

Cons: Needs some adjusting and maintenance to get it working. I was having trouble with BSOD and artifacts in some games, but after installing the latest drivers and playing with the overclock settings, I managed to get it working properly.

Overall Review: I recommend downloading the latest drivers from the website and don't use the ones provided in the DVD. It will save a lot of trouble.

Asus R7260X-DC20C-2GD% 3/20/2015 8:42:29 PM

Pros: Runs Good when can get it to run.

Cons: After 3 months screen starts blacking out and have to reboot several times, sent in RMA and got it back after 2 weeks starts doing it again sent back in thru RMA have had installed for 3 days so far and blacked out once already. Tried old card in it and runs great but old card cant handle the load so wish Asus would fix the card or send me one without defects. Though there support has been good throughout it but isnt doing me any good when the card keeps blacking out and cant use my computer.

constant freezing 3/17/2015 12:22:14 PM

Pros: Decent graphics quality

Cons: Caused constant computer freezes

Overall Review: I built a custom pc with this graphics card and it would constantly freeze. It was completely unresponsive every time, so I'd have to cut the power to it and turn it back on for it to be responsive again. This would happen many times a day, and often several times in an hour. I didn't know which part of my computer was the problem, and having no money, I couldn't replace my computer part by part to figure out the source of the problem. I recently got enough money to purchase a new graphics card, and ever since then there has been no freezes and it has never ran better. I'm not sure if I just got a faulty graphics card, or what the problem was, but I would absolutely not recommend this card.

Works great until it doesn't. 2/3/2015 11:25:39 AM

Pros: This card installed with no problems and worked great for 6-7 months. Ran all of my games at medium/high settings.

Cons: After about 6 months I started getting black screen issues. Now, windows 7 won't boot unless I remove power to the PSU. Usually takes 2-3 boots and I can use it for 2-5 hours before it black screens again. Read it was a BIOS issue that isn't resolved yet.

When it works it works well 1/14/2015 5:18:14 PM

Pros: Runs most games on Medium to High settings with 1080 resolutions

Cons: Constant Black Screens, Fails to Boot without PSU shut down, Crashes when in windows - roughly 2-3 hours of boot time

Overall Review: Currently running this on a Windows 8.1 machine and have constant issues with it, I have RMA'd it once with ASUS and now ASUS has failed to return any support calls, emails, and I am unable to leave messages for support because the mailbox is full. When this card works it is great, however that is very seldom. Unfortunately I am unable to return as its past the return policy. Do a search for this card before purchasing it as numerous people have had the same issues I have.

Great for the price 10/27/2014 8:54:45 AM

Pros: -Idles at 40-45 celsius, Games at 60-65 celcius
-Games have been running with high to ultra settings at 1080p with smooth frame rate
-Quiet
-Able to overclock

Cons: -I've been noticing artifacts showing up every now and then when playing a game. Mixture of screen flickers and texture stretching. Annoying, but they go away after while.

Overall Review: I contacted Newegg to remove my first review since I made a mistake with the temperature that the card idles at. They still haven't removed it though, so I'm making another one.

Does Have Issues 10/4/2014 6:43:36 AM

Pros: It was the right card at the right price. Unfortunately the experience is mostly cons.

Cons: As many others have reported. I am having issues with random freezes. It does not BSOD. The screen just locks up on whatever is currently on the screen, and the computer has to be rebooted. During gameplay, it goes to a black screen and then locks up. It's random, but it has never gone more than an hour or so without locking up. When I bought this card, it was with a motherboard, processor, RAM and power supply, and at the time I didn't have other hardware to swap out in order to isolate the video card as the issue. Also, I purchased the card as it had pretty much just hit the market a month prior, so I didn't have other customer feedback to go on. Thankfully there is a lot more feedback now.

I ran the full gamut of troubleshooting, tried every compatible drive on AMD's site, and ASUS' site. There's also a BIOS update for the card that I knew the card did not have. However, when I ran the update utility, the utility said that I do not need the update, and refused to install it. Which is a shame, because I know with 100% certainty that the card does not have that BIOS update, and the update claims to fix the very issue I'm having.

I swapped out every hardware component individually, and in groups, reinstalled Windows 7 more than once. I took the video card and installed it into 3 different PCs, and the problem followed the video card. As soon as you remove the video card from the scenario, the problem is gone.

Overall Review: I just started the RMA process with this card. Filling out the RMA form on the ASUS site was relatively pain-free. I'll be shipping the card out to them at the beginning of the week. I'll see how this process goes and update/write a new review if there's anything worth mentioning good or bad about the RMA or the replacement card.

One other thought. While going through the ASUS support site, I noticed that this model of card has a Hardware Revision 1 card (my card) and now a Hardware Revision 2 card. It's very possible that ASUS resolved this issue with a new hardware revision and that if you were to buy this card new, you may have a great experience. The problem, I don't have a revision 2 card, so I can't tell you that's the case. For the time being, I would avoid this card. There's a large number of customers all reporting the exact same issue. It's not likely that all of those people are using the card wrong. Not when the issue is identical across the board.

In my situation, I never overclocked this card. I've never even installed a GPU Overclocking utility. This card was kept in a cool environment with great cooling and airflow. In my case, I just got a bad card. It's unfortunate. Again, I would highly recommend against buying this card. I would still buy an ASUS video card without hesitation, just not this one.
