Got it for a great price a few months after launch ($130 with free shipping) and it's been fantastic this entire time. I finally have CPU (Intel 8700) that can really push it and it's been fantastic at 1080p gaming.

This Card is very good for gaming, with a little tweak you can even get it faster than the R9 270x as shown in my Userbenchmark http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/2772284
