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.

Awesome GPU!! Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Powerful (literal double performance of my now retired GTX 960)
Build quality is solid and high quality.
Stay cool and quiet (about 65c under load)
Plug and play
Overclockable
Cons
None
Summary
I've had this GPU for 10 days now, and so far I love it. I get near double the performance of my GTX 960 (which is now retired). Fire strike score of 13,300 out of the box, and able to run (nearly) all games at max settings 1080p and well over 60fps. Example - Black Ops 3 complete max settings including AA, about 110 minimum, avg of about 125fps. Even able to play it still max settings with AA at 1440p and get 55-70fps.
I've never had an MSI product before, and was a little 'meh' on the design. But once I unboxed it, I could feel how heavy and massive it was. It feels so high end in comparison to my SSC GTX 960, by a long shot, I now love the look! My brother just bought a 1060 on here, he paid 50$ more then me, and I got Doom (he didn't get any game), and we get literally identical performance.
Between the 2, you can't go wrong, but if you wanna save some cash, get the RX 480 :]

Great video card but NCIX sent open box product Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Great card, Great performance
Cons
Product received seemed like an open box. No sealing tape, Instruction guide ripped in some places.
Summary
Very disappointed in my buying experience. Did not expect to pay full price to receive a product that looks like an open box product. Bought 1500$ of components on various sites, but this is the only product that was received open. Very disappointed and will not buy again from NCIX.
