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.

  • Bought this from Nvidia's website and so far I have no problem with it. Have an Intel i5 7500, gtx 1060 and 16 GB of RAM and perfectly handles games. 100+ fps in csgo, 80+ in pubg.
  • I purchased this card from NVIDIA's website since I needed a blower style cooler for my mini-itx case. I'm upgrading from a GTX 645 and oh my the results are fantastic! I can run all of the latest games, maxed out settings at 1080p and get an easy 80+ fps.

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.

  • Very quiet and it works great on my Alienware X51 R2.
  • Naturally a pointless review bring the rating down for no reason. Let it be known, this is a damn good gpu and hell of a performance bargain. Upgraded from my gtx 760 I've had for a year... what a jump. Probably tripled my performance.

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.

  • Only uses about 120w so you don't need a beefy power supply either.
