This review is from: MSI R7 250 2GD3 OC Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: cheap

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Performer

This review is from: MSI R7 250 2GD3 OC Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Inexpensive graphics card that straight up works. I am not a gamer and didn't need some crazy spec'd board. I mainly edit photos and put together videos from my gopro and such and needed a decent graphics card that won't make things take forever. It runs quiet and installed without issues.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: When I ran the Windows Experience Index Rating, I was disappointed at first. I saw 6.9 and was bummed...until I saw 7.9 was the highest. On that note, the graphics was the lowest point rated at 6.9, so for the price I paid, seems like a pretty solid value.

4 out of 5 eggsGood

This review is from: MSI R7 250 2GD3 OC Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Bought this for a budget system, it plays Skyrim with mods on ultra.

Cons: Something screwy goes on with the driver sometimes, making the graphics bug out. I have to reinstall the Catalyst Control Center and restart the computer to return it to normal.

This review is from: MSI R7 250 2GD3 OC Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Fast, Silent, and Stunning! This card has been running my games very well, An absolute bang for your buck! I strongly recommend this card for low budget builds!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There may be better ones out there, but i have never had any problem with this card at all, the OC 2GB Video Ram handles games like you wouldn't believe! Get it if your doing a low budget build! It will handle more than you think.

1 out of 5 eggsWebsite Misleading

This review is from: MSI R7 250 2GD3 OC Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Company website lies about their max resolution.

Newegg didn't list the maximum resolution on this card, so I went to MSI's own website:
http://us.msi.com/product/vga/R7_250_2GD3_OC.html#hero-specification

Their page for this card says that the "Display Output Max" is 2560x1600, which is the resolution of my monitor. [And I have a screenshot of the entire webpage, in case they change it after reading this review.]

But when I installed it and the drivers, I only get 1920X1080!! After more research it appears that it's limited by the single DVI output.

But how can you claim to produce 2560x1600 on your website when you know the card can never output that resolution since you limited the DVI port!! Extremely misleading, and I consider it lying.

Other Thoughts: Don't trust this company!

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggswow O.o

This review is from: MSI R7 250 2GD3 OC Radeon R7 250 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Extremely cheap especially for what it is. It has ran everything I've thrown at it. I dont have many high spec games as of now (seeing as how I am running steamos currently). The highest game Ive ran at highest settings (other than high physx) is borderlands 2, no lag. Its a great card for a great value. I have tried to remove the plastic casing which is probably there to look cool, to get better airflow. I havent succeeded in this yet as it has very and I mean VERY tiny screws. But all around, It is AMAZING!!!

Cons: The only one I can think of is the cover, it feels rather cheap and I wish I could take it off
