from completed build "God's Last Gift".

One the best GPUs for 1080p Gaming. (Also decent for 1440p) On par with Nvidia's GTX 1060. Can utilize AMD's Freesync Technology. (You obviously need a Freesync ready monitor) Performance is great out-of the box, with a decent factory Overclock. You can easily OC yourself using MSI Afterburner or AMD Wattman.

Runs pretty cool and quiet thanks to MSI's Twin Frozr Fans. Fans doesn't start spinning until the GPU hits 60°c. It is a more beefier card than most, so definitely check the dimensions of your case before purchase.

Overall, I highly recommend this GPU for anyone looking to game at 1080p and high frame rates. (60fps and above)

replaced my old nvidia msi 660 ti 3gb card (seen in pic), was on the fence about this or getting 1060. have no problems with it, though im surprised how quiet it is, seriously my case fans are louder.

No problems so far. This is my first desktop so I've been using gpus built into laptops so far. Happy out but I've nothing to base it against.

This is the best third party/aftermarket version for the 480. It does a great job with temps and sound. The 8gb of vram should help a lot with games 1-3 years from now.

Stays cool and relatively quiet, quite wide though.

Thankfully to help the dent in my wallet I got this at Mikes Computer Shop on sale for $299.99. I think it was a steal at this price considering the GTX 1060 'equivalent' (or so I've been told) is more expensive. I love my graphics card, it's nice and runs everything so well. The twin frozr fans are a bonus too. (sorry I don't have any specs b/c idk what to record)

This card comes with some great software features and runs very cool and quiet. The main reason I chose this over the 1060 6 GB is the purported "future proofing" this GPU provides with better DX 12 support. AMD drivers have been outstanding for me, and the 8 GB VRAM allows for more assets and such in the game I play where it matters most, Cities:Skylines. I've seen people have less than stellar results in OCing this card, but I am not extremely interested in that aspect. I'm more interested and impressed with its noise, temperature and price, which at the time made this the sweet spot card.

Awesome graphics card from what I can tell. Though for some reason I still can't change the LED colors. Nice fans though, and it apparently also heats up to about 50 degrees celcius like the CPU. It fits with my mobo style. Then again they're both built by the same company.

Pro-awesome graphics owo; i run 200-300 fps on league, stylish.. Con-I can't figure out why the LED color don't change even though I found the setting changer for it.
