    Does what I need...

    I went to purchase a new graphics card that I found on sale on bestbuy.com. I asked the employee stocking the items in the area where to find it and even showed him the picture. He must have been new because he had no idea where it was and took me to the internal memory cards. I was browsing the aisles when he went to the back room to ask another employee where to find it. I found the item on my own and when I was looking at it another customer pointed out that it was of a low performance and showed me what he had purchased for about twenty dollars more. I was pleased that someone with the knowledge helped me that didn't need to and thanked him. The graphics card works great, the software is not so user friendly though. I know Best Buy is more focused around phones at this point and that is where the money is, but please train the staff that before they ask if I need help that they should know how to help and answer the questions. I love Best Buy and they have been helpful with most everything with my phone so like I said, must have been a new guy. Thanks again.

    Worst Video Card Ever Purchased

    Posted
    InZane4all

    Worst card ever! This is not even suitable for low graphic gaming at all. I honestly wouldn't even recommend it for basic tasks, The 4 GB with GDDR3 bottlenecks the whole system. I don't know where these positive reviews are coming from. The card on stock settings performs horrible. I thought by OC this thing that I would awaken it a little. I was completely disappointed to find out that the card performs worse when overlocked. Let me put this in perspective: My Nvidia 710 GT GDDR3 2GB runs WAY better than this card and overclocks higher and better, with only a heatsink, no fan. Invest in a mid to high end 2 GB card with GDDR5 if you want better performance at a cheap price ($500 for a GTX NO THANKS). Don't let those 4 GB fool you: This card is the worst buy NOT best buy ;-)

    For the price i cannot complain at all. Graphics look great. Sure there are much better graphics cards out there but not anywhere near this price. So if you are looking to improve your graphics but don't want to spend a ton or don't need something that is THE best this is a perfect fit. I went for having to play games with setting set mid to low and still getting bogged down in areas with heavy animation to now playing with setting turned all the way up with no problems. I have 8gb ram and Athlon black quad core processor overclocked to 4gb. I know my PC is not the best but definitely not completely obsolete either but just needed a video card to play games correctly. I knew my onboard graphics card was definitely lacking, now i don't have any problems with any games or videos i play. But that is just my 2 cents.

    This card worked perfectly with my system and yes i was very skeptical to buy due to some reviews that said this was easy to install and the software was easy to install and navigate through for updates etc.. Install the software from there site is the best way to get the newest version as the disc that comes with usually is out of date.. One factor is if your MOBO is AMD graphics ready you will have NO issues and makes the install sooo easy.. The dual monitor setup works flawlessly and is easy to change settings for your preference.. The card is a small footprint and has NO power connection to worry about & fits in the computer case with no issues as i have read some saying they have an issue with it fitting properly and i can bet its a cheap case = ISSUES.. I recommend this to everyone!!

    The card was a good pickup for the price. I was trying to find a R9 in this model but was not available. I originally have a standard R7 in my Lenovo I purchased a few months back but still could not perform with some on the games I already had. If you every purchase a Lenovo with the AMD chipset with the 1Gb R7 that is embedded on the motherboard pick this card up. Since the drivers are already installed putting this version of card in along with the driver for it is almost like an update plus with the 4Gb of ram that comes with it. Just remember to upgrade to a higher wattage power supply since the processing on this card is such a high demand. Added to this you will need a 16 to 24 pin connector for the new power supply.

    easy way to upgrade a 6 year old build.

    I previously used the integrated graphics in my PC build from 6 years ago: A 2nd Gen Intel Core i7 processor with 8GB of ram. I'd say overall a 25 to 30 percent performance improvement and a massive uptick in performance in photo editing software. even Street Fighter 4 at max settings runs about 45 frames per second now. previously i was lucky to get 10 fps. recently upgrading my Ram to a total of 20GB plus this Video card I hope to get another 5 years of use out of this build. I would recommend this for older PCs within the last 7 years or PCs using integrated graphics. i was very skeptical feeling this would be a downgrade and no sign of a dedicated power port for the PSU, but it works.

    4k30 = not good for 4k era

    Great price on the card but I wanted it to drive a 4k monitor @60hz and it's only able to do 30hz on any resolution above 1080p. For that reason alone I had to return it. It will do 1080p60 just fine though. It does have 4GB of DDR3 which is also a hint that the card is not top notch. Most video cards should have GDDR5...it's an indication that the GPU will really perform. Also look for HDMI 2.0b, sometimes states it on the box or in the specs. This card is fine for office work at 1080p60hz though. PS: Best Buy was great about returns...will buy a different card.

    Great Card X2

    I ordered two for AMD crossfire after checking compatibility list. However, it does not do crossfire even though it is written on the box. Small print states "connect bridge connector", which it does not have a bridge port even though list states no bridge required. I traded cards with my wife and son, so I could use two Nvidia cards with SLI. They love this card for all their steam and origin game play, big deal with my son who is a super gamer (FPS FTW).
