Gigabyte R9 270X Windforce OC Review

  1. Well that is beautiful, no doubt about it. excellent card from Gigabyte!

  2. the windforce coolers are great, I have an older windforce card and its quiet as hell.

    Just watch out for dust long term, they do gather a lot, and I find they need cleaned out every 4 -5 months under regular use or performance will be hurt.

  3. If you only have a 1080p monitor I dont see any point in spending more than £180 now.

  4. Ordering this one in the new year. superb for the money

  5. Well I’m more than sure that I’ve made a good investment, my country is hot, arround 36 on summer so a good cooling solution it’s a must have, anyway good investment, good decent card, way more cheaper than nVidia’s a power hungry overheating machine, I’ve hada lot bad experiences with nVidia this is my first AMD-ATI GPU
