Love this card. Skyrim on Ultra settings...smooth as butter.
I picked this up for £170 on Amazon a few months back, so a bargain. I orginally was looking at the 1050ti but this card beats it straight up. I chose this 470 version simply because it was the cheapest + on sale, however the Sapphire Nitro version and the MSI version are similar. The Red Devil is OCed out of the box, and actually sits just behind the 480 by a couple percent/FPS in performance! This particular 470 even does better in some titles. Check out benchmarks to see for yourself. 4GB GDDR5 is perfect for high/ultra @ 1080p, so I am very happy with this card. It is pretty big though, so make sure your case has clearance!
I took a star away as this card can run quite hot (80 celcius under load!), but nothing too dangerous or major. I haven't setup a custom fan profile yet, so it could be me. Other than that, no complaints. AMD Crimson software is really great, too, plus this GPU supports FreeSync, Vulkan and DX12.
not the best in Radeon or the GPU comunity but it gets the job done
The best value card I could justify getting at the time. Overclocks well (mine is happily running at up to 1320MHz with no temperature issues at all).
The fans can get a little loud at high speeds but IMO this is a very acceptable tradeoff for the overclocking headroom they provide.
The card itself looks pretty sleek, although the Red Devil logo on the side is upside-down once installed. Apparently this was fixed on later versions.
