XFX Radeon R7 250 R7-250A-ZLF4 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: High performance for a low profile card. I am able to play Battlefield 4 on Medium/High settings at 1080p with no issues at all. The card is in a very small Silverstone Milo mini itx case. I use this as a HTPC paired with an intel pentium G3220 and 4GB of ram. It is primarily used for movies, but i also have a few games that i play.

Cons: I didn't really care for how thick the card is. I would think for a low profile card they woudln't make the fan shield so thick. I was using this in a mini itx htpc case so i actually had to remove the fan shroud to get it to fit correctly. It comes down to the situation that you are using it in, but you should know if you remove the fan shroud it takes about 1/4" off and it made it fit just right.

Pros: Great look and feel. This case has excellent built quality, which is to be expected of Silverstone.

Cons: I ordered a Seasonic 350Watt SFX power supply from here on newegg. When i installed it i had to take the 2.5"HDD bracket out and am unable to fit it back in with the HDD installed. It could be an issue with the PSU but i am missing about a 1/4" of clearance to get it back in.

Other Thoughts: Overall i am very happy with this purchase.

Pros: I was able to install windows 8 without any issues off of a thumb drive. Then windows already had the drivers for everything this board has. I installed XBMC inside windows and use this as a HTPC. I am able to play full 1080p content in XBMC with this without issues. There isn't any lag in the menu or when flipping through the movies. I have all my movies and tv shows stores on a USB 3.0 hard drive that is hooked to this. I'm sure me using a SSD as the boot drive and cache drive for XBMC does help with this.

Cons: The only con is that it doesn't have a USB 3.0 header on the motherboard, but i ordered a mini pci express card that has the USB 3.0 header and that will solve the issue.

Other Thoughts: Great board for the money, barely sips any power at all. Doesn't get hot, and can play 1080p content without issue.
