MSI AMD Radeon HD R7770 GPU Card.
This GPU is excellent quality and has high performance in every way.
Scored a 7.6 in Gaming Graphics and Aero.
I play BF3,BF4,Farcry 3 etc. Easily on High settings with great FPS.
I would sincerely recommend not over-clocking any GPU card. This card runs perfect at 1000Mhz Core Clock and at 1125Mhz Core Memory(default) all on Med-High Settings under custom in BF3.I disabled shadow effects and view distance raised it to 90(its max distance I believe).
Furthermore,from experience leave MSI Afterburner uninstalled at all cost -due to it using other Server Resources which degrade the performance and bandwidth or your GPU card and etc., hardware.
And at idle this GPU Card stays at 23 Celsius. Load around 38 to 45 maybe. Which is outstanding. Just check on boot-up in Catalyst Control Center under AMD Overdrive to see your idle temps, in-game etc... -mine are 23 Celsius as I stated. Also choose option: Adaptive or Multisampling.Do not use Super Multisampling which is offered -for stability reason's.
Overall, I've seen Superior Performance in every game.I chose performance in all areas in catalyst which improves my needs perfectly, as well as high performance on Windows Settings.
And the Seller(MSI)is very efficient with fast shipping and
proper packaging,manual guide,CD,etc. This card outperforms the GTX 550Ti benchmarks btw. I had this card prior to this purchase.
Definitely recommend this card for any Gamer,Bluray,HDMI,Dual Monitor user's etc..
**Update: 02-19-2013 Switched to a Hitachi HDTV (PTV) 60" Flat Panel as my Monitor and I do not use the recommended resolution settings of: 1920x1080. I use resolution: 1280x720 which works perfectly on this 60"HDTV screen.I hooked up to this GPU Card with a HDMI to HDMI Cord(6ft). Along with an HDMI Switcher bought off here at Amazon as well.
This GPU Card still performs just as top notch still,and I bought the refurbished card.
Gaming and Internet is amazing on a 60" HDTV. :)
Still performing as a brand new card in all way's.:)
Great card! Highly recommended!:)
Bought a new MSi B85M-P33 Military Mobo, and bought a new CPU G3420 @ 3.2Ghz and set this card in it. I decided to reapply fresh thermal paste(since been over a year,but did not need it at all)before sitting this in my new board.
This card is still working flawlessly.
