    Perfect for a budget.

    Great GPU! I had a few problems but then I figured out it was because my drivers were not installed right, so it was my fault.

    Died after 2 years. Did the job though for when it did work, apart from a few (about 20-30 or so?) crashes during its time of use. Now rockin' an RX 470, I'll pop a review when it's worn in a bit.

    Love this card. Excellent cooler, looks really cool, and at the time, the budget card to get. Prime time and good performance per dollar at the time. Too bad that price was $200, and went down significantly soon after.

    This GPU runs very quiet and very cool. Even at 100% fan speed, it is still much quieter than my PS3. And I play Alien: Isolation for hours and it never gets hotter than 50°C. Also, it never goes over 50% fan speed to keep this temp. The only problem is that it's getting a bit dated. I bought it back in October 2014 so it is already lower than the minimum specs for some new and upcoming games.

    Bought this baby during a black Friday sale. this is the only GPU that I have used. Cannot run Fallout 4 on max. Runs out of RAM on a lot of modern games. Runs dirt 3 in at 4000x900 resolution on ultra

    Was indecisive between this one and the GTX 760 (220$) Was basically a no-brainer since I get the same performance at a lower price.
