its okay but... 7/1/2019 2:51:20 PM

Pros: cheap

Cons: games crash constantly
slow load times
fans stopped working after a few months

Overall Review: I would recommend this if you want a cheap PC. But i don't recommend it if you're a serious gamer. It got the job done but inst very consistent. One of the fans stopped working and caused it to get hot everytime i would play a game.

after 3 years it died 7/18/2018 9:10:47 PM

Pros: It worked for 3 years

Cons: It died

Overall Review: Card worked fine than one of the fans decided it only wanted to work at 100%. Ok, I can deal with that. The lack of a backplate caused the card to bend and put stress on the PciE slot. Now, the card is dead as well as the x16 slot. Thanks Sapphire for a subpar product that also damaged the main board. Never buying Sapphire again, too bad as it was the only brand I've ever purchased over the many years I was a loyal customer.

The Penultimate Budget Card 11/16/2017 2:17:13 PM

Pros: The temps are relatively low-- only 31-35 degrees C while idle, no higher than 60-65 under max load.

Gaming performance is excellent-- quite a few modern releases can be cranked up to max settings at 1080p, and if you don't mind medium, the 3GB of VRAM will give you solid 1440p gaming.

Max settings, 60 FPS! Alan Wake, Battlefield, Red Faction Guerilla, and more... only the latest Gameworks titles will give you trouble, and that's because of Nvidia's shady behavior. The card itself is amazing.

No coil whine whatsoever. The only noise is its fans, and even that's not a big deal.

Cons: Vastly Outweighed by the Pros:

It gets loud under load. The fans ramp up to about 49%, and when the game goes silent (AKA because I'm bad at games and lose a lot), you can hear it. I recommend using headphones, but for the most part, speakers won't be too much of a hassle. Keep in mind, the noise is a bit louder for me since I have my card open-air cooled rather than in your typical case.

The TDP is nothing small, and AMD jokes aside, the room does get a bit hot after about an hour of using this card.

Just a bit outdated-- let me tell you, I got a bit worried when I opened the box and saw a Crossfire bridge... on an AMD card. This also means some later features such as FreeSync and full 4K in VSR are unsupported.

Overall Review: I can't take away an egg for these small inconveniences, because everything else about the card has been perfect. Nvidia would have charged you around $300 for a good 1080p/1440p card, and here I am getting almost the same experience for $180. My only regret was picking the free "Super Eggsaver" shipping that made delivery take a week, as this card has passed every test I've thrown at it with flying colors.

AMD has made me their fanboy, and I won't object to it.

works great even in 2017 9/19/2017 9:03:52 PM

Pros: i bought this back in early 2015, and it's working in late 2017. I've played BF1, BF4, PUBG, also on this. worth the money.

Cons: it did not 'evolv'e into something more powerful as time passed by.

Worked great for 6 months 4/7/2017 8:06:39 AM

Pros: Worked great when it worked

Cons: Only worked for 6mos

Overall Review: Occasionally used for World of Warcraft. Now it dies after 1-2hrs of use which we had to turn down all the graphics settings to get that far. With the graphics settings at normal level we get maybe 20mins before it dies.

Obsolete today, but chugged along fairly well for 1.5 years 7/7/2016 11:45:39 PM

Pros: - Held 60fps on most games with medium-high settings back then. Still holds 60 on low settings today.

Cons: - First one was defective. The fans wouldn't run so it would overheat a few minutes after launching any games. RMA'd and got a working unit fairly quickly.

Overall Review: It served me well for a budget card. Recently replaced with a gtx 1070.
