Very fast graphics at reasonable price for high end.
Just perfect. Everything I could have hoped for, and more. Yes, I could have gone with the Gaming 4G or a R9 390(x), but look at this thing. It fits perfect!
Great for maxed out 1080p60fps gaming. I use it with a 144Hz monitor, so I tend to run mostly high settings instead of ultra and tone down the AA. Otherwise great card and awesome overclocker as well(1500+ Mhz!).
Does exactly what I wanted - 1080p, 60fps on ultra/very high settings, with basically everything I throw at it. Overclocked a bit and still runs around 70 degrees under very high load over long periods of gaming. Got a great boxing day deal on this, and haven't regretted it.
Best Budget Graphics Card! Runs most games at Max Settings over 60+ Frames.
More powerful than I had expected, really good card but obviously not the best. More than enough for what I need, and I doubt I'll need an upgrade anytime soon! It would have benefited from a backing plate, as the card itself is a bit flimsy. Its not too bad once installed, just needs a gentle touch. Hasn't impacted its performance.
Have had this since launch and no regrets for 1080 gaming.
It was an okay upgrade to my 7870 I thought, nothing special.
But then I overclocked it.
Still, might upgrade once Vega shows its head. Or go for the 1080Ti if I'm too impatient and further homework suggests a worthwhile improvement in the most lengthy processing tasks of my workflow.
Anyway, when I do get time for gaming this is more than a match for 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz on Ultra. And except for stupid high resolution Quixel work it doesn't leave me wanting anywhere for work tasks either.
not the prettiest, not the fastest, but works great, and it's quiet.
My second 970 and this one runs better then my last one and is second hand great card from MSI and still holds up in 2019
