ASUS Radeon R9 270 DirectX 11.2 R9270-DC2OC-2GD5 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Just running 1 of these without overclocking I can play all of my games on ultra with no issue, that's great since it only cost me 180$, great performance for price.

Cons: I can't crossfire these without a nuclear explosion happening in my case. They do not blow heat out like they should, or like the 290x I have, they just sit there and cook. My 290x runs full load at 80, these cards in crossfire run at 95 without full load due to spacing. I had to open the case and blow a squirrel cage fan onto them. Almost require liquid cooling to run more than 1.

Subtracted eggs due to lack of cooling, running 2 of these side by side should have been in the design.

Other Thoughts: Issue could also be resolved with a motherboard with a bigger gap in pci-e slots, but I should not have to do that.

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 100361BF4SR 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 BattleField 4 Game Edition Video Card

Pros: Amazing card, (Plus free BF4!) can take everything I throw at it with ease, with only 1 card and I bought 2! The heat threshold being so high is great, It usually runs at 80 with maximum loads, but being capable of 95 without issues I love it way more than my 270's, which I have to worry about at those temperatures.

Also, when it's really cold outside I can run these bad boys in my room and save heating costs!

Cons: I bought 2 cards and immediately after the price was raised 200$? Luckily I got mine before then, but I did want to purchase additional cards for my other computer, but with the price gouge I will not. While I understand the prices are raised due to supply and demand (Thanks a lot, scryptcoin miners), the card now costs more than the entire rest of my PC, which was not cheap.
^Did not remove egg for this, is not a card issue, but a newegg/provider issue

Also, I can't run this computer in my room unless it is freezing outside, under heavy loads it increases the temperature in my room by about 10 degrees.

Other Thoughts: Should have set up liquid cooling, would then be perfect.

1 out of 5 eggs I don't see one 08/27/2009

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - World of Warcraft

Pros: None

Cons: I already own WoW, so I didn't want this anyway... but it claimed to come with my nvidia I ordered as part of a combo. I didn't get it. Not on the back of the box, not in the box, not in the book, nowhere. I didn't want it and do not want it, and it's definitely not $49.99 if I did want it, so I don't really care... but if you say it comes with it, it should come with it. There's no code for WoW anywhere.
