What customers say about "Key Specs"
MSI Radeon RX 580 ARMOR 8G OC Graphics Card
  • This is a very good graphics card and has no problem in running my FPS and RTS games well above 60 fps in 1080p.
  • This card is also pre-overclocked from stock by MSI and I am very satisfied with the current overclock level. I do not intend to touch the clock speeds anytime soon!
  • Very silent graphics card with good performance. I have a 4K2K monitor with 100% RGB and the card delivers on it quite well.
  • This card is overclocked to 1366MHz and is great for light gaming.
  • This card is amazing. Very good price for 8gb card and performance.
Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 GAMING 8G 8 GB GDDR5 256-Bit Memory
  • Had no issues with this card. Use it for 1080p gaming - deals with that no problem whatsoever.
  • Aesthetics of the card is relatively clean and simple. No gaudy dragons or otherwise cringey 'gamer' logos.
  • The performance is good for the money. So if you're priority is performance only, then this is a good choice for gaming in 1080p.
  • It's a good card for video editing as I have used it for both 1080p and 4k.
  • Works great for 6 months. Did not overclock, kept everything factory. Performs very well.

What customers say about "Features"
MSI Radeon RX 580 ARMOR 8G OC Graphics Card
  • This is a nice looking graphics card that works well with my black and white interior.
  • This graphics card is also linked with my AMD FREESYNC monitor to enable more smooth gameplay and without having to put on the less reliable software v-sync to achieve this.
  • Works great on my computer and it even came with a fun little instructions comic.
  • Really quiet fans and the only time i have ever heard them ramp up was running an un-optimised VR simulation.
  • Fantastic card! Definitely the best value for money card on the market for gaming at 1080p right now. Happily plays all my games at highest settings and looks great.
Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 GAMING 8G 8 GB GDDR5 256-Bit Memory
  • It is slightly more compact than the Sapphire card it replaced, especially in height.
  • Looks great when it’s not freezing. This card runs everything in VR flawlessly.
  • Great GPU. Fans are quite. Great graophics. Pair with 16GB RAM or more for best performance.
  • Cooling is a step down from my old Sapphire Nitro R9 380. Heatsink on the Gigabyte card is a bit on small side.
  • Video card keep crashing more often and I had remove Aorus software and everything went back to normal.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
MSI Radeon RX 580 ARMOR 8G OC Graphics Card
  • The card was easy to install in my Mini itx case and the AMD software was easy to find. Great card overall.
  • It has 2 Displayport and 2 HDMI outputs which makes it ideal for multi-screen setups such as mine.
  • The video card provides excellent outputs for connecting.
  • It was very easy to plug in this video card. The picture through the HDMI cable is shocking.
  • When I went to use the empty hdmi lead input , the lead is very loose and doesn't connect.
