Pros

Good value in terms of mining
Cons
1060 would beat it in terms of gaming

Great Card, Bad Drivers Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

- very silent
- runs games fairly well
- looks good
- msi software does well
Cons
- AMD graphics drivers are abysmal
Summary
Honestly, I don't want to scare off anyone I really like the card and the performance. However, AMD's graphics drivers are the most god awful pile I've seen yet. I've had issues with the installer not working correctly, having to go into safe mode just to uninstall the driver, windows control panel not being able to uninstall, needing to use a special AMD utility just to uninstall a corrupt driver, graphic artifacts, VIdeo TDR BSODs, no graphics settings menu, and having to rollback drivers. the card is worth the money, but the amount you save on buying AMD end up costing you 3 to 4 hours of manual testing depending on how often you update your graphics drivers.

TL;DR save money switching to AMD, spend more time troubleshooting, bad AMD drivers, besides driver headaches great card.

good graphics card Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

high quality build
Cons
crashes for no reason
Summary
card is high quality, the fans are good, runs 1080p games at ultra with 60fps smoothly.

sometimes I get video blue screens for no discernible reason, I've tried doing clean reinstalls of the driver and it did not help.

Great card and value Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Lots of input options
Plays current games with awesome frame rates
Value when on sale
Cons
None
Summary
Decided on this one over a 1060 6GB because its DX12 performance is a bit better and it was on sale. If you are reading reviews make sure you read current ones as the performance has gotten better than when it was first released.

Good bang for your buck GPU Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

- Very quiet, until you hit heavy loads
- Good card if you do some light gaming along side photo/video editing
Cons
- Largish card, just fits, without hitting upper (removable) drive bays in Fractal Design R4. If you need a compact GPU this one isn't for you.
Summary
The MSI RX 480 is a good value for the price, with performance very close to the more expensive GTX 1060. I do a mix of light gaming, photo and video editing, so this card seemed like a good fit in terms of performance for the dollar.

I like how quiet this card is most of the time. Even when I'm gaming for a few hours at a time the fan only comes on intermittently. Video rendering doesn't seem to cause the fan to kick in much either (in a room at 21ºC).

MSI's software isn't bad either, but all I've used it for so far is to kill the LED's (windowless case).

The only thing to watch out for is the size of the card, which comes very close to the removable drive cage in the Fractal Design R4/R5 cases. Not a big deal if you don't use the drive bays, but if you do that is something to keep kind mind.
