Not easy to fit into this case, although that was obvious since it's listed as 10mm longer than the case allows. Despite this, I found a way to make it fit after about 30 minutes without breaking anything or altering the case. I did take the upper drive cage out, that seemed to help. Got this at jet.com and it runs all the games I play, Dota 2, Overwatch, ARK, above 60fps no problem. If I run ARK on epic it slows down a bit but that also happens on my main rig with an MSI 1070 Pro Gaming X.

Fantastic. Looks great, runs quiet, everything on Ultra. Got mine with a free copy of Civ VI, so that's 60 bucks off right there. If you're looking for a high end GPU, but don't want to drop your life's savings on a 1070 or 1080, this is the way to go. Often goes on a good sale.

This is one of the best cards for the price to performance ratio. This card works perfect to max games out at 60 FPS

Nice budget card! So far on the games I play, (Unturned, Kerbal Space Program, various other games, all on ultra settings) it works awesome!! No lag and consistently high FPS (60-200)!

I'm really thrilled with this GPU!

Looks nice and does its job, although I wish its power consumption was a bit lower and had more overclocking headroom without resorting to bios mods.

An OUTSTANDING card for 1080p, especially at the price.

Favorite component of my build, perfect card for 1080p and does not disappoint, so far runs any game at ultra settings well over 60 FPS (BF1, BF4, FO4). Played for 4 hours and runs nice and cool under load (59-62C). Software is easy to use, RGB lighting on MSI logo, different lighting effects as well, great looking GPU.

this graphics card is huge and bulky! takes up an insane amount of space on my mATX motherboard, and makes it hard to install computer cables around. on the other hand, the size ensures that the fans are able to keep the card cool and running quietly... i'll sacrifice space for insurance against overheating components any day! solid build quality, vibrantly simple aesthetics in terms of color. i was going to rate this card 4 stars, but AMD has great driver support for the RX 480 series... made a huge difference between out-of-box performance and post-driver installation performance!!

This is an amazing graphics card. Its price is really good considering the performance you are getting. The cooling is really good and definitely the most reliable RX 480. Also, the card is fairly quiet. Plus its usually on sale for the same price as an RX 470 4gb and this is a much better choice
