    Keeps cool well, and has good design but 3GB is a limitation in some games

    Came from previous build, almost pulled the trigger on a GTX 1070/1080 but decided to wait, and wait and wait and wait (Repeat 100 more times hahaha!) for Vega. I got it for $100 from a friend who upgraded to a GTX 1080, at that price how could I not?

    For now, this card holds it's own for 1080p gaming on high to ultra settings getting well over 60fps on average for most games. Considering I don't game or edit in 4K just yet I'm in no rush. the limited 3gb is really not a factor for most games I play and even for rendering, encoding or any other content creation programs that utilize the GPU as long as you have any video card in your PC there is very little difference in terms of performance between cards however the advantage of the higer end cards is mostly for playback and smoothness of scrubbing and previewing. even with this card I can edit in Premiere and After Effects pretty seamlessly.

    It's obvious this is the weakest part of my build that's why I mention that my build is almost complete. Whichever is the better price to performace from GTX1070/1080 vs Vega equivelant will be my choice.

    Guess I'll have and update soon? Hopefully?

    Good card overall, runs well and is pretty quiet. Haven't tried overclocking yet but it run's PUBG and Rust in High settings with no issues.

    My only complaint is the lack of a back plate causing a good amount of sag.

    Very good performing GPU and the price makes it attractive too. I have yet to use it with VR but I am happy to know that I can if I want to

    Can play any game I throw at it. But some more demanding games you need to turn down a few settings.

    Flawless at 1366x768, very overclockable and silent. The temps can get a little high but with fan config it's alright.

    I bought this card for $200 October or November 2016. It brought new life to my aging computer. It's a bit of an odd card. I've heard I should have got the 6GB of memory. I've also heard the video RAM gets used mainly for textures, so if you plan on turning down the graphics to maximize frame rate you won't see much of a difference? I'd rather grab 1070 or a 1080 once the price is more comfortable. But with the cryptocurrency mining craze, I might end up waiting for next gen!
