    Nice looking card with decent stock performance, won't be suitable for anything above 1440p. AMD also ran a promotion for three free games with selected Vega graphics card purchases, all of which I was looking to get anyway...

    I've knocked off a star due to the power consumption and noise, the later is to be expected due to the blower style cooler. Under volting is definitely worth while.

    For a blower style cooler it does a great job at keeping a 180w GPU cool. Rarely breaks 75C. And I got 3 games with it. That's always a plus. Even better after I under volted it, while being able to keep the same performance. Then for fun I overclocked and managed to get an almost 20% increase in benchmarks. But running 1080p ultra wide it was kinda not needed so I am just running undervolted.

    Runs hot, but still preforms well at 1080p on hard/ultra. Runs 4k pretty well on high.

    Loud and HOT but offered good value for money.

    Compared to other Vega cards, this is not the best option. But I was on a budget, and this was what I could afford. Compared to other blowers, I really like it. If you don't put it in a vertical mount, it's quite nice, but I find the air boost sticker to be tacky. Thankfully I don't see it. The Red MSI logo is nice, but I can't find out how to change the color, or even if I can. But my theme was already red, so not much complaining.

    I purchased this card on discount from newegg.com. Considering how little i paid for it, i am very happy with the performance it offers. Runs a little on the warm side, but that is usually the case with Blower-style cards.

    For a Blower Card I give it a 5/5, for a Vega Card I give it a 4/5 due to that same reason, Blowers tend to be hotter then Fan Cooled Cards (And Liquid Cooled of course) I like the design however and the MSI RGB touch added to it is fantastic, it performs just as well as my Vega 56 on my main build so I am pretty satisfied that it under volts just as good. 5~ degree temp higher in average then my Red Dragon.

    from completed build Impulse Budget Gaming Build

    At the price I got it, this is easily a five star GPU. At stock settings I get GTX 1660 Ti performance; albeit with a much high TDP, temperature, and noise level. With very easy to achieve overclocks, this can get very close to the GTX 1080. If the temps and noise do ever bother me, a combination of undervolting and fan tuning can easily lower the temps and noise by a significant amount while not sacrificing much performance at all.

    Looks badass, puts out lots of frames, noise and heat. The graphics card equivalent of an American Muscle car.

    OH YES. EVEN MORE HEAT FOR YOUR ROOM.

    1500 GPU and 930 DRAM, will handle anything you want.
