hardware-wise this card is great, but there are some issues with the drivers atm. These issues I've run into are:
1. random "flickering" during 2d tasks like browsing in firefox. Google shows that this is a known issue that the AMD driver team is working on.
2. When I boot windows 8.1, I get my bios splash as expected, but then the screen goes black and doesn't come back. Windows actually boots fine however, because when I turn my monitors power off and then on it then starts working and I am greeted by the login screen. it does this every time I boot and its quite annoying... Hopefully a driver update can fix this too. When I installed the card I did make sure to completely uninstall the AMD drivers before removing my old amd card, rebooting, then shutting down the pc, install the new card, and install the latest 13.11 beta 9.2 drivers for the card. I don't think its an issue with the card itself, because the issue only occurs during boot up, and after power-cycling the monitor after boot up it functions 100% correctly until the next reboot.
EDIT: I worked around this issue by hooking up my monitor via HDMI instead of DVI, for some reason it worked fine that way, and I get windows boot screen and login screen without having to power-cycle monitor. really weird issue...
EDIT 2: 2d flickering fixed with sapphire vbios update
EDIT 3: Fixed the DVI/Black screen issue by enabling UEFI boot in my mb settings and reinstalling windows 8.1 in UEFI mode. I can now boot fine with no black screens with a DVI connection. I guess there was some weird compatibility issue between my MB's legacy boot mode (biostar TZ68A+) and this cards UEFI bios.
Performance in game is very good, achieving between 30 and 60 frames in all my games, including Crysis 2 and ArmA 3 with high and above settings. For this cost I look forward to buying a second in the future to run them in Crossfire, which should keep me with high performance for a long time to come.
Overall, a great buy,dont worryabout it being a slightly older model, its only, SLIGHTLY older and it performs very well. Highly recomended.
It runs a little hot, but this case is garbage so there is no intake fan. I have to take my side panel off for gaming.
As for gaming, no issues yet, everything on max. I tried out Skyrim 720p (1360x720) on ultra plus FXAA plus AMD catalyst driver AA overrides+about 10 graphical mods and was getting 22 FPS exterior, locked in at 60 (due to crappy monitor refresh rate) interior.
The newest game I have played is Torchlight 2, 60FPS, no issues.
Pro's: quality design and reliable. UEFI out the box, no BIOS tweaks to get it to work.
Con's: dated and should only be used as an upgrade from really old cards, this card isn't future proof.
Other thoughts: I wouldn't recommend getting this for Crossfire, unless you have a full tower. It's big and hot.
The first initial card we received didn't function at all. No tuning of the BIOS or removing drivers or Windows updates did anything for it. Was completely dead.
The second one actually did power the second machine we tested. Unfortunately it was extremely unstable. Every other time we opened a game or video the machine would either bluescreen or the drivers would crash.
Looking at reviews (not from Amazon), this is apparently a very common thing to happen with this card.
Spend a little extra to get something better.
