Great for cryptocurrency mining, but MSRP is $399 - don't pay more. Nov. 28 2013
By James F - Published on Amazon.com

These are good cards, but MSRP is $399, so don't buy at those prices, you can find them elsewhere at MSRP prices or better.

Anyway, I purchased these cards for cryptocurrency mining, I am very happy with the results which is about 800 kh/s.

I followed directions I found online for mining settings, and made some additional tweaks in terms of AMD Catalyst control (disabled all "Overclocking" performance settings, disabled Crossfire) and these are running great without ANY overclocking! The nice thing about that is that your warranty won't be voided.

These cards are rock-solid and are very easy to setup and get going.

I'm not a gamer, but I am sure they'd be fine for that seeing as how they can be run at 100% load for over 24 hours with zero problems.

Powerful video card, but don't forget to upgrade the BIOS! Dec 10 2013
By Gerald Verzosa - Published on Amazon.com
Powerful cards but is very hot and noisy when the fan is running at full throttle. It requires a 6-pin & 8-pin power connections. It comes with power cable adapters in case your computer's power supply doesn't have any available.

I had ordered 2, but one of them always had a Code 43 error by my operating system (Windows 7). I figured out that I had to upgrade the BIOS. The BIOS upgrade also included a powerpoint presentation which made the process simple. Here's the link in case you need it also.

$849 for a $399 MSRP video card? are we crazy? Dec 12 2013
By Drakull - Published on Amazon.com
Considering that the MSRP is $399... wouldn't even consider to pay more than double that price for it. For that price you can get 2 of them...
DO NOT BUY!!!! July 8 2014

Do not buy this card if you do not have proper air flow through-out your case, this card gets really hot, to the point where I had to keep the fan on 100% all the time, I did have a defective on though where it kept shutting down and I only just got it.
Very good card compared to the 290x May 24 2014

This card will handle everything at 1080p with all the settings turned up to the highest. I recently purchased a 21:9 monitor at 2560x 1080p and noticed very little, if any difference, when it came to performance. However you will probably get better frame rates turning AA down a setting or 2. During games the card does get sort of loud, but it's not as bad as everyone thinks. If you want to hear loud, turn the card up to 100%. I did that in cgminer, and I don't think I will ever complain about in game noise again. During games the card gets to 40 or 50% and doesn't feel too hot. This card also gives about 850 kh+ if you have the settings right. I practically stole this card at 340 after a 30$ gift card, and I'd highly recommend buying this if you can get it for 400 or less. The main difference between this and the 290x is mostly clock speed, but most people will never notice the difference because it performs so well anyway.
