Best RX 580 on the market

Pros: -All the amazing AMD features, like Radeon Cool, FreeSync (with applicable monitor) -Easy Undervolting and overclocking -Nice MSI LED backplate

Cons: -None!

Overall Review: -Buy Buy Buy Buy Buy -Also note: While reviewing passmark and benchmark scores for this card, I couldn't find any information I trusted, because this card performs above and beyond the RX 480. Real passmark score was 11,384 for the 3D test, compared to the ~7,000 they list on their website. This competes the same as, if not better than the GTX 1070 I am running a Ryzen 5 1600, 16gb DDR4 2666Mhz, SSD, MSI B350 Gaming Pro everything on stock speeds. Don't let other websites fool you, this card is an absolute beast.

Worked well while it worked

Pros: Cheap. Cost Effective

Cons: Went dead 3 months in. Just ordered a new case and PSU because of this. I got it as part of a Newegg combo deal, so I can't expect much for the quality. But I mean, I feel like I should have gotten a lot longer out of it than what I did.

Overall Review: Would really like a refund to be honest, on the case and PSU. Avoid if possible. Not that this is a bad company, just that these parts are very lackluster.

Great Value!
