Probably the best deal I got in this machine. I paid $259 for each of these monsters with a $20 rebate. For $500 I got more performance than I could with a single 1080 for over $100 less. Plus having two GPUs and HBM is pretty awesome too. I pulled a graphics score of 30,555 on 3DMark Firestrike running at stock frequencies.

GPU: well, this part is that game me another challenge. Initially I wanted to go with the EVGA 1080 but I found a 50% discount on the Sapphire R9 Fury and it was an insta-buy. My next monitors are going to be free-sync so that's just a plus there. I had to cut a corner off the backplate as It did not fit in the case properly, holy cow, this GPU was very hard to fit in the case without bending or forcing anything, the GPU is 307mm long while the recommended max length by fractal design for the case ie 310mm. Well… even if it is a 3mm shorter it didn't fit the entry, but when it was in place there were no problems at all. The GPU is overclocked at 1100Mhz and the HBM at 530Mhz.

Close to GTX 1070 performance but only 4GB of VRAM, even better at high resolution and in Vulkan and DX12 games. Worth it if you can somehow fetch one at a reasonable price...

This combined with 1080p 144 hz FreeSync is unbelievable for what I paid for it (240$). Ive owned this for about 9 monthes now and it has been wonderful with no issues at all. Only con I can see is it is very large. Now that Vega is out, ofcourse that will be a better experience, but if you can snag one of these up for 240-280$ I highly recommend it. FreeSync makes AMD cards worth it at basic 1080p 144 hz. Even if I only get 100 fps, I cant even tell the difference cause its so damn smooth. 5/5.

I needed something to drive my Freesync monitor at 1440p and the R9 Fury Nitro was the best AMD card out at the time. It was on sale for about $250 last December. At 1440p, its performance is similar to a 1070. This card is massive. Over the top huge. But it is super quiet and most of the time the fans don't even spin. It barely fit the case. I do notice that when it ramps up in a game, the max temp is about 78c. It blows out the side of the card and heats up the case. Those three fans at top speed get pretty loud too. I'm really temped to pick up a hybrid card.

Can't really provide a good review as mine died very quickly (only lasted about a week). Games looked really good at 2560 x 1080 on maxed out settings. Card is very large but was simple enough to install.
UPDATE I have upgraded to a 3440x1440p HP Omen 32" 60hz (75 hz with Freesync) monitor. This card runs most games on High-Ultra settings. Occasionally on Ultra it (I am assuming) runs out of ram and causes the game to freeze but the sound continues. When this happens I restart the game and scale the graphics down slightly and it seems to fix the issue.
Overall I am really happy with the card and would definitely purchase again at the price I paid.

An excellent GPU. Performs well in every game for the price I paid($300) while staying very cool and inaudible. The biggest drawback is easily the VRAM capacity. It has the power to play games such as Battlefield 1 in 4K around 50-60FPS, but the game can not be maxed out due to that limitation. I recommend this card for high FPS 1080p gaming, because you can still hit VRAM limits fairly easily in 1440p.

Amazing graphics card for the money. Maxes out every game without breaking a sweat. It is the perfect card for 2k 60+ fps max settings gameplay.

$275 is an incredible price for this and I'm glad I got this deal instead of the 480. I've honestly only played CSGO, Battlefield: BC2, and Dishonored so far, but it keeps all of them at my max framerate with the exception of occasional brief drops in BC2 (and freesync takes care of that). With less than 5 minutes in MSI Afterburner, I undervolted it and messed with fan speed settings, and it sat at or under 40C in Dishonored in about 2.5 hours of play.
