What customers say about "Key Specs"
ASUS Radeon RX 560 14CU 4GB EVO OC Edition GDDR5 DP HDMI DVI AMD Graphics Card (RX560-O4G-EVO)
  • This card has cranked every game so far on ultra 1080p with a steady 30+ fps and even hitting 60 fps+ in some areas. If you're looking to go for bang for your buck, but do not have enough for the 480 I HIGHLY recommend this card.
  • I'm not a cutting edge gamer but I play arma 3 (62 fps on very high settings) and DCS (great performance.) I hesitated to buy a "mid-range" card like this, but I honestly wouldn't make full use of an R9 fury or a GTX 980.
  • Very good video card. I have no more complaints about how slow my graphics card is / was ... with this card my daughter is able to play all her games at the highest settings with no crashes or lag time .
  • I grabbed this right before the prices skyrocketted, and I am very pleased with the card. I put it in my backup computer for running some basic games, but it will hold up to games like Rust or War Thunder with ease.
  • Runs great, plays BF4 fine. I'd check elsewhere for real reviews, but it is a solid little gaming card.
EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 GAMING, 2GB GDDR5, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC) Graphics Card (02G-P4-6150-KR)
  • Runs lower end games like League of Legends, Counter strike and Fortnite at 100+ fps maybe 70fps for fortnite.
  • After getting weird looks from the postwoman who pulled into my driveway (i never go out there to get mail from her), i got my video card i'd been anticipating for a week. Well lemme tell ya, this thing is expletitive'ly awesome!
  • This is a great board for the price. The video out put is great, I have it installed on a Gigabyte AB350 gaming 3 MB with the Ryzen 5 1500X. I had no issues at all.
  • This vastly improved the graphics of my Dell XPS desktop computer. The video game OVERWATCH looks much more vivid and the play is completely smooth. It was well worth the money.
  • Struggles with newer games like Overwatch (can only render at 50% without noticeable tearing)

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS Radeon RX 560 14CU 4GB EVO OC Edition GDDR5 DP HDMI DVI AMD Graphics Card (RX560-O4G-EVO)
  • Good card for the price, stays very cool and looks very nice, is small and light and I had no issues installing.
  • Great for budget pc's but to not have it brake you will need to increase the fan speed manuly by using an app like msi afterburner b/c the card is over clocked and it still runs at normal speed also the oc is vary week I just did mine manly
  • It gives your desktop the power to go to the future. At the size of this gpu it plays really nice. This was used on my friend's new gaming pc... Which I build for him. And wow for the price it is really good!!! And the led logo looks really nice. I am very happy
  • I needed this for a new computer I built with a Ryzen processor, which has no integrated graphics processor. But with HDMI output, because this board has no audio, I am tinkering to get audio out of my monitor. No luck yet.
  • My only complains with this card is the noise and temps. It's heat-sink is just a piece of aluminum with fins.
  • I bought 4 of these for office computer builds... they were so noisy that I thought it was the case fans from the Coolermaster N200 that I've built over 100 PCs in.
EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 GAMING, 2GB GDDR5, DX12 OSD Support (PXOC) Graphics Card (02G-P4-6150-KR)
  • The fans are honestly dead silent!
  • This card works well and stays cool. The drivers installed as expected and I've had no issues whatsoever in games. This card is pretty long and wide so be prepared to bunch up wires or push them out of the way.
  • Runs all Adobe software quick and efficiently. All runs extremely cool (28 degrees C or 82.4 degrees F) is a hot room, under load. It is long, however, so keep that in mind and measure your available space before purchasing. Very quiet as well.
  • Hard to release the 16x slot lock - cannot reach under the edge of this card.
  • The only thing that would make it better would be passive cooling.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS Radeon RX 560 14CU 4GB EVO OC Edition GDDR5 DP HDMI DVI AMD Graphics Card (RX560-O4G-EVO)
  • I tried using the HDMI connection, but found that the display port connection is faster.
  • I didn't realize that it would not work with a vga monitor so I bought a Active DVI-D to VGA Male to Female Adapter and it works just fine.
  • Only thing I was hoping for but didn't list it as a function, it did not have the CrossFire connection. The STRIX Radeon works as good as two video cards so CrossFire is not needed, even though I would have liked that option.
  • Real nice video card, very solid and well made. I was not able to keep this as I needed 2 DVI outputs.
  • Also, I was a bit disappointed at the lack of a VGA port on the back. I wish that they left out the old DVI port and put in another hdmi port or vga, But for the price I think that this is great for a gaming PC.
  • Sadly, the card doesn't slot into my PCI express x16 port very well. I wanted to say that it was my old gateway case causing the issue, but I was able to slot in other Radeon GPUs for testing and they fit just fine. So, I'm not sure what to make of that.

  • The only reason I gave it 4 start is I had to change my monitor so i could hookup the HDMI as the DVI port is defective and some pin holes are blocked off and bend the DVI pins in my adapters.
  • Works as advertise, one little complain is that my secondary monitor on HDMI is a bit fuzzy, I played with the settings for a good hour but can't get it just right
  • Had to buy hdmi adapter for it work on my computer works perfectly after it was installed
  • This was the perfect solution because it draws very little power @ 75watts and it requires no power supply as it draws power from motherboard.
  • I had to purchase adaptors for 2 of the ports to be able to connect them DVI-D monitors. Fortunately everything is working properly now. This was a compromise, but may work.
  • Drivers do not play well with Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 audio interface for system and web browser sounds. (pro-tools works well though
