What customers say about "Key Specs"
Gigabyte Radeon RX 470 DirectX 12 Video Card (GV-RX470WF2-4GD-MI)
  • Great video card for 1080p 60+ fps gaming, got it a few days ago and no issues so far.
  • I couldn't be happier with this video card. The quality of it feels so much better than any of the other 470's and it looks so clean.
  • Great video card. Have been running all games, modern and older, at 1080p 60fps or more. Battlefield 1 runs great at ultra settings. It does need some configuration at the first run.
  • In terms of performance this card is great and Gigabyte has done a great job with the cooling - quiet and effective. Not quite as powerful as my 1060 6GB but not far off in terms of gaming performance - impressed. Better in some video editing operations.
  • Works great, pc build and runs great. Very easy to install with instructions. Lights make the pc look cool aswell if you have a clear case.

  • 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"
Gigabyte Radeon RX 470 DirectX 12 Video Card (GV-RX470WF2-4GD-MI)
  • Of course, you can't even see that part once it's in your PC and it looks so good; from the back-plate to the adjustable RGB LED light in front, I'm an extremely happy customer.
  • RGBs and a back-plate make this card feel super solid.
  • Good, quiet card and overclocked well. +80°C before i added more fans to my case and 60-70°C when i added more. The build quality is also great, it feels expensive especially with the backplate.
  • The cooler itself is quite good, with the fans at only 900rpm temps are below 60c and noise levels are good - not inaudible but very quiet.
  • The fans have a bad profile to start, just open up the AMD Graphics software and change the fan profile to fix.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder's Edition
  • 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"
Gigabyte Radeon RX 470 DirectX 12 Video Card (GV-RX470WF2-4GD-MI)
  • It's a solid video card. Gigabyte didn't include a cd/dvd with drivers or software, just a booklet which states there's a cd/dvd in the package which is a lie, so I'm dedcuting a star. You can download drivers and utilities from gigabytes's website.
  • Connected using a DVI cable and all seemed fine. Started updating the driver and the screen went black... no signal (Windows 10 by the way). I was a bit concerned and it took me a while but the solution was really simple. Just plugged it to my TV via HDMI and got signal.
  • As for the performance of the RX 470, it is beast. I own an Ultrawide Freesync display, and with this card I can easily max out all games I have tried.
  • The first one I got was DOA fan stop light on side was on all the time while fans continued to blow at high speed, couldn't get any of video out ports to work on different computers and different monitors.
  • Hdmi Port went bad already. Causing the h110 to crash when on a heavy load. Switched to dvi and no issues so far.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder's Edition
  • Only uses about 120w so you don't need a beefy power supply either.
