8GB MSI Radeon R9 390 GAMING 8G Twin Frozr V, 28nm, PCIe 3.0, 6100MHz GDDR5, 1060MHz GPU, 2560 Streams, DP/HDMI/2x DVI-D is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8Gb MSI R9 390 AMAZING I chose this over the MSI 970 GAMING mainly due to a bit of mis-information on my part but I really don't regret it at all. The 8GB RAM is huge and helps me run multiple accounts at the same time. Whether a constant 60 FPS in "The Division" is good in combination with my FX8350 processor is good or not... but everything I try on it looks and runs amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect. Cheaper than some cards, and makes my machine run games beautifully without and mouse lag. Running Payday2 and GTA V fine on highest settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Excellent product, I noticed the difference when running programs and games, the only thing I would mention is the size of this graphics card. I had to buy an 3xternal usb dvd drive as the graphics card takes up allot of room on that motherboard. It covered up a row of my sata drives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from brilliant It's a large card but not longest so make sure you have the room. It's performance is top notch, plays the latest game's with ease cruising through with the game settings on ultimate. Comes with software to over clock a little but it's so powerful it breezes by in stock settings smooth as silk. If you need a powerful card with 8gb ram i definitely recommend this card. The fans are load dependent so sit idle mostly until you give it something to chomp on and even then the twin fan cooling is pretty quiet. The psu fan is the one you hear most at full load. Make sure you have at least 800w psu this is the minimum spec for this card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best card iv ever had! This card is absolutely amazing, it runs everything i throw at it on highest settings flawlessly. Love how the fans don't run when its idle, as shown in pic. Cant wait to water cool it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid card with great cooling and power usage. Replaced a R9 280X, dropped a full 20 Degrees for the same and better performance in the same games, still fully manageable with the MSI tools and running on a 600W PSU with 4 HDD and a 6X processor so well under the recommended 700W. Cannot fault so far (1 month on).
