Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beast ! Great gpu ! Any game in 1080p is destroyed in over 70 fps ! Low temperatures,very high quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent GPU! This is a great GPU, manages decent frame rate on most games! Good quality and silent operation. For the crypto curious it also manages around 24.6MH/s on ETH and around 300 Sol/S on Zcash/Equihash

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance for a cheaper price Card runs perfectly for games and 3D modelling. Temperature stays stable for most operations and adaptive fans keep power usage down. So good thinking of buying a second to bridge them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good gpu, but beware Stay away from reference cards, they tend to have bad power consumption on your motherboard, especially 6pin rx 480 which pull power from pcie slot.

is a 650 power supply enough to run this card

Asked by: weirzo76
It would depend on the power consumption of the rest of your computer components, this card will require 150W to operate,
