Is SAPPHIR a good GPU brand?

#1foxyReyokoPosted 7/23/2014 5:52:41 PM
I am about to order this GPU right here:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202079&cm_re=290X-_-14-202-079-_-Product


Do you guy have any experience with SAPPHIR GPUs or the R9 290X who could comment or share any input? Please respond

thanks

I have been using my sapphire vapor x for about a year. No issues with it.

Awesome! Thanks guys


I only worried because there are only 33 reviews for that card on newegg and 4/5 stars.... doesn't seem bad but not stellar. But what does newegg reviews matter

Sapphire has been the class of AMD cards for forever.

You're not going to find a 5/5 with 30+ reviews on anything practically anywhere.

Someone is going to get a DOA part and write a ****ty 1/5 review about how brand "X" is trash tier and how they will never buy again from them because people are idiots.

asus and msi I'd take over sapphire all day every day.

You're also paying about 25% more just for the name. Sapphire puts quality stuff out at a reasonable price.
