    from completed build First Build (aka Broseph Stalin)

    Got this as a factory refurb off of eBay. Very solid card, and haven't had any issues so far. Runs BF4 just above 60fps on ultra settings, other games are similar or higher fps. Temps are good, hasn't gone above 72C running benchmark tests. We will see how it lasts down the road.

    This was all my budget would allow for the moment I only had $150 for graphics. I am quite happy with it for now. I'm playing WOW at the moment and having no problems keeping 60 fps even in raids that's way better then any of the off the shelf PC's I've owned. I Just added a cpu cooler and figured while I was at it I'd change the thermal paste on this so far it seems to be a fluke but im gettting 20c less at full load I'll be testing this more later. I should soon be upgrading to the first MSI R9 390.
