from completed build Ryzen Ghost (AMD Upgrade)
UPDATE: I bought one brand-new for video editing (because editing with integrated graphics is miserable) and all of the issues described below are non-existent. It handles everything I throw at it like a champ, and is the reason I was willing to swap out my motherboard and processor for weaker ones while they are being repaired. Don't buy used. It's rarely worth the money you save.
OLD: Bought this used from Amazon. Not doing that again. The card itself is fine and handles games like Dragon Age: Inquisition and Civilization V beautifully. Took 2 stars off because my screens will occasionally flicker horribly. Unplayable level of horrible. Most of the time, the flickers are annoying at worst, but I my hardcore Diablo III character died because the screen flickered in the middle of a boss battle.
