Solid GPU for being a bit old.
This card is 5 years old and still slaughters games. Granted, I don't play a lot of modern games, but it also doesn't just perform aptly - it slaughters games. I love this card, and it will be a sad, sad day when I have to upgrade it.
Perhaps it's a bit unfair to be reviewing a card that is four years old. I could have taken the opportunity to replace the thermal paste but didn't think it was absolutely necessary. However I bought it for $90 bucks off a local ad and for that price, it deserves the recognition for a borderline VR ready card for less than $100.
It looks great! Could use a backplate, especially in my circumstances with the glass of the Shift facing the PCB.
Only complaint is that this card is power hungry, requiring 250W for performance just above that of a 1050Ti, yikes! With all that power comes heat that needs dissipating, but remember! It's a $90 card or less. For that price, the complaints seem much smaller. Just get the needed airflow over it and pay the extra buck or two a month. :)
