i spent 3 weeks going over upgrades specs, back and forth involving youtube, sapphire and many others just to get a feel of how this would work in my pc. i am running windows 7 with a core 2 duo 3mhz processor- 6gof corsair balistix memory and playing World of Warcraft. no regrets great item for seamless game play.
ok so for those dont want to read a full review here is an outline: the good: its a lot stronger than its price point leads you to believe it is very low power, i been able to run this on a quality evga 350 watt supply during my tests runs way cooler and quieter than my R9-280X it keeps up really close behind if not passing my R9-280X easy to overclock to get extra 10fps or more from it
the bad: you have to be willing to tweak your game settings manually, not with presets. and disable things to compensate for boosting resolution frame rates and settings it may not be ideal for dual monitor setups if your planning on running multiple GPU intensive loads such as HD video while gaming but less than that it can usually handle it without noticeable frame drop.
ok, so let me clear up a few things here, im going to explain my setup. i wasn't expecting much, specially for the price, but i am stunned! im using a AMD A10-8750 APU,...
It's a good upgrade for my Radeon HD 6770 crossfire. They ended support for non GCN cards so the latest drivers won't work on my older card. It was time to upgrade. Initially I was thinking of going with 380X but it was a bit too expensive for me. Also my power supply only have two PCI-E adapter. Just enough for two 370 in crossfire. So I went with the 370. I wished the 370X was available here. It is only available in China and is said to not come to the US.
I can finally render Blender Cycles on my GPU. It's a free open source 3D content creation software.
I haven't tested it on a recently released demanding game yet. I still have to buy something next Steam sale.
Ruse, an RTS game won't run. I get access violation. I play this game quite a lot. But it seems it has been abandoned by the developer, Ubisoft.
I do have three screen set up. It's the same set up I had with my 6700.
