    from completed build Raw Cashew Nuts

    I am more than impressed with this card. I was considering spending $30 more and going for the MSI RX 480 but I wanted this ITX build to be as cheap as possible. I chose AMD for its price/performance ratio, to use FreeSync on my monitor, and because I dislike Nvidia's business practices.

    The MSI RX 470 4GB Gaming X undervolts like a champ and becomes much more efficient using stock frequencies, greatly reducing the required fan speed to maintain 70C under 100% load. I'm using 2000 RPM as target fan speed and the temperature remains stable at 70C. At stock settings without undervolting, I had to use 2400 RPM to maintain the same temperature. This GPU is silent when idle and fans only start spinning at 60C. Because of the small case and the lack of case fans in the GPU chamber, I find the ~58-59C idle temperatures to be higher than I want them to be, sometimes forcing the fans to come on and off repeatedly. I plan on installing two static pressure fans in the GPU chamber to improve idle/load temperatures and play around with overclocking.

    [edit: Ditched Wattman for Afterburner, created a better fan curve, and lowered my monitor's refresh rate from 144 to 120Hz for the GPU's memory clock to scale its voltage/frequency according to load as opposed to being locked at 1650MHz. Now at idle I'm at 35C / 0.700V / 1000 RPM and 60-68C / 0.981V / 1600-1800 RPM under load. Installing case fans feels unnecessary now.]

    Overall, this is a quiet, powerful, and so far an undervolting beast of a GPU that runs all games I've thrown at it at very high frame rates. Hard to believe I can get this performance for $157. If I had used the MIR, the total cost would've been $137.

    from completed build $900 Gaming Budget Build

    Beautiful design, cool LEDs, silent under load. Remains at 59 degrees under a furmark stress test for 5 minutes. My favorite card series available for budget builds at the moment.

    from completed build Manta Revived for Fiance

    Was able to find this on a reddit thread, and have not been disappointed. This is my first AMD GPU and it is perfect for 1080p gaming. I do regret not looking for the 8gb version but since the Fiance doesn't need crazy in game settings this card hits 60fps on many of the AAA titles she enjoys.

    from completed build My Second Gaming PC ~$800 Budget

    The MSI Gaming X... a beautiful card and very nice lighting... But no backplate (cries). I know this is a budget card and I don't mind there being no backplate I just wanted to say that. This card does great, but I do notice screen tearing which I do play games at high settings, well I don't mind it but that is just a thought. This card does great on playing most of the games I own, a lot of them AAA games at high settings. That is all.

    Good gpu for the price , plan to upgrade to a 1080 / RX 490 in the near future.

    from completed build Black Widow

    The best for the budget. Provided that I'm currently playing at 1080p, this card can manage most games with high or ultra settings with a decent frame rate (45-60 FPS).

    I also managed to get about +150Mhz overclock which was great though it ran a bit hot (80 degrees) at that speed.

    from completed build First Build, Gaming PC

    My only problem with the MSI 470 is the size. I feel like its weight should be scaled down to minimize strain on motherboard.
