Rated 5 out of 5 by DuckonQwack Everything I hoped and more
I fell out of the PC gaming world for a few years (drawn to the Xbox 360 because most of my friends were on it) and desperately needed to upgrade my rig to play the newer games that I had missed like Battlefield 4 and Bioshock Infinite to name just a couple.
I went with the r9 280x based on benchmarks and the awesome MSI edition boasted low temps and quiet fans.
Boy does it deliver. Not only does it run Battlefield 4 (for me the most important atm) on Ultra with ease 35-100 frames ... probably 50-60 average but it seems like it runs pretty cool and its remarkably quite. Really like the design of the MSI frozor as well.
Great card that wont break the bank completely.
So far it has lived up to all my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by filreed A great card for the current crop of games.
Bought this as a replacement to a HD6850 that was starting to struggle on some of the latest games. Whilst it can't run everything at top settings at 1080p at 60fps (Crysis 3/Assassins Creed IV I'm looking at you) it gets pretty close.
It's a quiet card that runs well in my system that contains an i5 3750K overclocked to 4.2.
Power usage dosen't seem to much of a problem either as my PSU is only rated at 450W.
It's at a good price/performance point as the next level up (R9 290) is just getting too pricey.

Ordered a new graphics card for my sons computer at university. Process was very simple and there was no problem with it being delivered to his address (nearly 200 miles away from the registered address for the credit card).
Kept informed of the process all the way through, even down to a 1hour time slot for delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrMing Great Card- amazing price to performance
Msi's Radeon r9 280x is an amazing card with a sleek and sexy look, with loads of performance. I can play all my games on ultra with no problems (ultra in Battle Field 4, Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Bioshock Infinite and Far Cry 3. The card is also nice and quite under load. Well worth the money, especially if you are on a budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mintsauce666 Outstanding
Spent along time looking for a decent graphics card that i could play all my games on, at first the difference wasnt at first apparent but after a little time the card became outstanding, never had any problem with the card and looking to get another for crossfire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JAlexD Excellent performance for the money
It came fast. was very well packaged and blows away every game I've tried so far on Ultra settings. The games I've tried are:
Wolfenstien: The New Order
Dead Island: Riptide
X3: Terran Conflict
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Saints Row 3 and 4
Minecraft w/SEUS & LB Photo Realism (1000+ fps)
If you are unsure about purchasing this card, don't be, its freaking awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mintsauce5264 simply outsatanding
bought this to replace an 7790 card, all i can say is that the quality of graphics is a completely different standard to what im use to. im thinking of getting another so i can xfire it, should be able to handle any new games coming in the future. very happy indeed.
