Decent at very reasonable price
Pros: - Unbeatable low price. I got this with 10% discount (under 370 after tax) and 3 free game (Not like N card gives away BFV and claimed it worth 60 bucks, AMD is giving away new titles really worth 150) - Very quiet at high load. My CPU cooler is louder at 1200 rpm than this card at 1800 - Power efficient. Compare to my old 390X this thing is consuming nearly only 75% at high load, thus much less heat generated as well
Cons: - It's very long (Not super heavy though). Fit my full atx case with less then half inch space left - 6+8 pin power input is in mid of the card. A nightmare if you have a see-through case, there is no way to hide the wire. Plus the wire covered the red dragon logo...
Overall Review: - Only got it for couple days, so far so good no issue yet. - I don think this one can update to 64 bios
Nice looking, easy build, cheap quality, won't last
Pros: Price is good, compare to other large brand, a full tower with these much fans will cost you at least double Nice looking, it's for my wife's upgrade and she picked it, just for the looking Building is easy, took me lease than an hour to finish, plenty of space for wires Front, bottom, and top open were covered by dust protector Plenty of hard drive space
Cons: Quality is a problem, besides half of the case is made by plastic (which is understandable, for the price), what I don't understand is the power bottom dead after a year and half. Now I have to turn it on from the MB. Although it fit full size board and you can install water cooling, but the case is not wide enough, and the MB mount is a little too high. So the problem is the water cooing fan cannot be installed on the top because it will get in the way of the water pump over the CPU, even though it has a 120*3 space ready. So I have to install it on the rear fan slot, which limit my option to single 120 Same issue with space, you cannot install optical drive if you have a full size MB in there, short about half inch to push the box all the way in.
Overall Review: Good for people who like to try to build their own PC for the first time I personally dont like fans with led light or see-through side wall, but some people may cheer the colorfulness. Probably worth the money, if you can convince yourself that you shouldn't expect too much for this price.
Perfect for gaming and daily usage
Pros: Upgrade from my 3 yrs old 7970. Runs GTAV on 3440x1920 for 2 hours, all ultra, 4X MSAA, stunning graphic with 0 driver problem, stays 50 fps, and temperature didn't even pass 55
Cons: Although it has 8G memory, I guess 512-bit just isn't enough to utilize it all. 4.5G is probably the bottleneck, above that you will see bad frame drop. Get another card to crossfire would solve this, but that would be another 400 bucks plus possible PSU upgrade.
Overall Review: I saw people complain about the noise, which I wasn't aware of. Will see if it stays that way. I have been using ATI/AMD card for over 5 years, and never had any driver issue. One trick is do not buy the first release, give it several month to release a better driver. Looking forward to Fury X2 :)
it's bad or just I'm bad luck
Pros: I don't know since I never actually used it
Cons: Bad bad.
Overall Review: I ordered it on Black Friday and the item was defective. Contact Asus and newegg twice and they told me to ship it back because it is definitely bad and not repairable. So I did it right way And it took more than 2 weeks for newegg to response so the warranty passed. (I called them the last day of the warranty and they told me "oh sorry it was delayed. Your item is bad we can't replace it and will sent it back to you real soon." So I bought a new item, ship to me as defective, and they told me it's not replaceable after warranty expires. I always love newegg but this is probably the last time I will ever buy from it.
