Pros: Best card I have owned. Been able to play all my games at High to Ultra settings with FPS dipping no lower than 41 FPS!!! Games I have benchmark are Hitman: Absolution, Tomb Raider (2013), Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Skyrim (heavily modded), Sniper Elite III, Fallout: New Vegas (heavily modded), Rift, Bioshock: Infinite and more!!! Really excited about this card. As of this post I am using the AMD driver version 14.7 RC3 driver which I installed right away. I did not bother with the installation disk that came with this card. I did my research ahead of time. The card temp has not gone over 67c under heavy load using various benchmark tools to stress it. From my experience for the price is a win win. For as of right now of this post the card is idling at a temp of 32c, which it normally does.
Cons: As of this post none. Great card!!
Overall Review: As of this post I have been running this card on a 400W Power Supply and have had no issues. But I did also purchase from Newegg a 550W power supply that I have not installed yet for future upgrades. Do not get discouraged by the posts about the AMD driver issues. Just remember. Most people do not post unless they have a issue. I have owned nothing but Nvidia cards in the past. But I decided cause of price to performance ratio of the AMD to take the plunge and purchase and I am so glad I did!!! Hope this post gives others the relief I so wish I had when making the decision to do so also.
The rest of my system specs are : BIOSTAR A960D+ AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard, Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (Yellow Heat Spreader) Model TLYD38G1600HC9DC01, AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX, 1TB HDD 7200rpm Seagate drive.
Yes I run all games at 1920x1080 resolution on a Samsung SyncMaster P2250
I will edit or add a post if I come across any issues with this card.
Pros: Works great!! Excellent customer service from Team Group Inc!!
Cons: Had one of the sticks fail after 6 months.
Overall Review: Even though one of the sticks failed on me I still gave them 5 eggs because of the excellent customer service. I emailed Team Group Inc when I noticed the failed stick and they responded immediately. I only had to mail the one failed stick back to receive a replacement. They suggested I mail both sticks back but that would have left me without a working PC. From start to finish of the replacement process was less than a week which IMO is Excellent customer service and the whole process was effortless. Thanks again Team Group Inc!!
