    I'd still love one of these. I have an HD 5770 connected to a 1080p Vizio TV in my main computer, which serves as an HTPC and occasional gaming box. I've had my HD 5770 for a while and it could use replacing. I've already had to replace the fan.

    I'm interested to see how the 750 copes with my modest gaming needs (Civ V, League of Legends, and the occasional other steam game) and if there are improvements in its handling of HDTV.

  • The Von Matrices - Friday, March 21, 2014 - link

    The 5770 has about the same performance as the R7 250. The only difference would be slightly lower power.

    See www.anandtech.com/bench for a comparison.

    Every week my brother and I play SWTOR as a way to keep in touch (he lives in Florida and I live in Iowa). Every week my brother's computer crashes in the middle because he is running a Dell Inspiron 660 with the integrated Intel HD graphics. I have been wanting to upgrade his graphics card without replacing the power supply. I think the AMD Radeon R7 250 would be perfect for this as it does not require a separate power connector. Thanks Reply
  • DragonJujo - Friday, March 21, 2014 - link

    My current HTPC setup is running with an old HD 4850 from an old gaming build. The R7 250 would make for a nice lower power system that's still capable of running good framerates on the games I play from that computer. The rest of the system is running with an older Vertex 2 SSD for some decent load speeds, a WD Green drive for media storage, and an FX-8320 that I got at a huge discount all on a well-priced Asus M5A78 USB3 motherboard.

    This would make an excellent upgrade to my auxiliary computer, which functions as a home server and acts as the PC that friends use when they come over to game. Currently it is running an A10-5800K, which is enough for older games, but struggles on newer titles since it's driving a 1920x1080 display. The R7 250 would be a pretty solid boost for that, or my dad's PC which is running an HD 5670 which was an excellent card when I bought it for him... four years ago....

    AMD for life!

    Repeat of what I posted for the other R7 250 that I doubt I won. Swap out my GT 640 ion the family computer. We do some LAN gaming in the house and the rest of the time I am not being green by burning up electricity mining some crypto and warming the house cause its still winter in MN.

    Same comment as the last 2 giveaways:

    I bought an FM2+ motherboard and a cheap non-APU Richland processor (Athlon X2 370) several months ago for a machine that is mostly desktop use, with occasional light gaming. My intention was to put a Kaveri APU in when they came out, but now I'm trying to decide whether that really makes sense or not. Dual crossfire is definitely a consideration, but I’m a little uncertain where I want to go at this point.

    Currently this box has two video cards, a 6770 and a 5450, driving 3X 1920x1200 24" monitors. The plan is to put the 6770 into my 6 year old son's AM3 machine that used to occupy this desk (Phenom II 555BE, 3rd core unlocked, slight overclock, old HD4000 series video card that used to be where the 5450 was before the drivers were moved to legacy status and things got borked), and buy an A10-7850K and give the dual crossfire a whirl. It would probably meet my needs for this box, but I’m just having trouble convincing myself.

    Oh, I own about 5000 shares of AMD stock that I refuse to take the loss on, if someone wants to add that to the consideration list of why I should win something nice from AMD. :)

    My current PC setup is a small computer I made using an Ivy Bridge Celeron chip on a mini-ITX board that cost $50 from Foxconn. These are stuffed into a Bitfenix chassis with a salvaged 2.5” hdd. This replaced my old Asus G50 gaming laptop which throttled any time I wanted to play a game and finally died last year, most likely because of the heat. This computer works fine for most basic tasks. However, playing any modern game on this is a chore. Everything is extremely slow as I found out. This was not the original plan.

    Gaming has always been something I loved. Back in my high school days, I saved up money to get an AIW 9800 Pro. It was a revelation. When before I could barely play any game, I was now able to play Warcraft 3 at maximum settings. Never before has any game shown so much detail, so much design, so much energy. Not only that, I chose that video card because of all the bonus features it offered such as TV recording and video input. My gaming habits only grew from there. In college, I met with many people who share the same passion for games as I do. We regularly play various games together then. Games such as World of Warcraft, Warcraft 3, Left 4 Dead, and Diablo II. Even now, we still play those games together. I can even play decently! Or I should say I could since the low frame rates make any semblance of skill a coincidence.

    The original plan was to buy a brand new Razer gaming notebook. This would future proof me for any games that my friends and I will move on to. Unfortunately, the money set aside for this had to be used for an unforeseen expense. The expense was entirely my fault but nevertheless, with my laptop on its last legs I needed a new computer, for without one, I would be unable to work. As for why I didn’t get another laptop, the price along would have prevented it. Instead, I just decided to use what little budget I had on a cheap computer that I can at least conceivably upgrade in the future. And upgrading it is needed for my friends are now moving beyond Left 4 Dead and World of Warcraft for newer better games that will never be able to play on integrated graphics. Games like the wonderful mechs of Titanfall or the majestic locales of Final Fantasy XIV. So please, I ask you to send me the R250 so that I can continue my adventures with my friends in the newest locales we can venture.

    In the summer of 2012 I built a beefy core i7-3770S mini-itx PC w/ 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, and two HDDs in RAID1. I've been using the on-board intel HD4000 video exclusively, because I don't game much being a Linux desktop user. However, with Valve's Steam picking up... steam, these last few months, I've been seriously considering upgrading to a low-wattage video card like this one from AMD, both because it's under the PCI-E watt limit of 75W, so I won't need to upgrade the powersupply, and because AMD's still a better bang/buck VS the NVidia alternatives. Reply
  • max40watt - Friday, March 21, 2014 - link

    I think I'll go with the same comment that I had in the prior two giveaways. That is, I've recently rebuilt my NES PC (a lovely little HTPC inside of a classic NES), moving from a power sipping e350 to a new and shiny 7850k. Although a huge step up, I'd actually like a bit more. It would be nice to be comparable or even a bit higher in graphical fidelity than the new PS4 and Xbox one, and a crossfired r7 250 would hopefully get me there.

    As I said in the prior posts, I'd be happy to share my observations with AMD and I would be delighted to put up an artile on anandtech showing the NES PC, its build and how it was performing.

    120gb Samsung 830 SSD
    Gigabyte AMD 7850

    Why do I need this r7 250? I believe my current 7850 is giving me issues with Left 4 Dead 2. An occasional freezing while I'm blowing away zombies is no fun. An r7 250 would solve this problem!

    PS: Yes, I know the game is super old, but I'm not exactly rich and Steam was giving it away for free a couple of months ago. So it's new to me!

    I have a HTPC with a 4350 card in it and a Ceton 4 channel tuner. I also have a main pc with a 7700 series card in it. - I use both boxes for running World Community grid, which can make use of the GPUs installed. If I were to win this, I would move the 7700 series card to the HTPC, providing that machine a much needed graphics refresh, and the new card would move to my main PC. This would allow me to do things like play The Elder Scrolls Online and run the World community grid projects simultaneously, with full resolution on the TESO game. So in short, give me the card, and I will help save the world :-) Reply

    This would be great for my HTPC that currently has an HD 6570. It works okay for playing videos but when you want to go into a game about the best it can do is 1280x720 @ low details. The R7 250 would be a nice upgrade to get to 1920x1080 with better details, especially since it is low power and doesn't need external power connectors. Reply

    My desktop handles most of my gaming - R9 280X GPU, i7 CPU, 8gb RAM, 480gb SSD, and a gorgeous 2560x1440 ZR2740W monitor that I just picked up. However, I'm looking at building a lighter-weight system to hook up to the TV - mostly for media playback, but it should be able to handle some occasional light gaming too. I think the combination of a Kaveri CPU + one of these R7 250 cards might be about perfect. Reply

    I'm currently running my HTPC with a Phenom II X4 940 (cannibalized from my previous gaming rig) utilizing the motherboard graphics from the 785G chipset. Until recently I was using a passively cooled HD4650 but the card recently burned out and I was forced to revert to the onboard motherboard graphics.

    I watch local content through XBMC and also stream through Netflix and Amazon. Now that the system is running with onboard graphics it just isn't quite fast enough to provide a seamless viewing experience. Playback stutters at least a little on most HD content, but when watching Amazon's higher bitrate HD streams it becomes unwatchable. Since Amazon does not let you specify bitrate I'm forced to watch SD streams if the video negotiates to the highest quality streams.

    With the addition of a Radeon R7 250 I'd once again have a powerful enough hardware video decode system to fully enjoy my HTPC again.

Her current machine is a full size tower, which has to sit on top of her desk... and is very overwhelming. something small, efficient, and with a bit of new power would be great... and this card would fit right in.

    Her machine has an i5-2400 processor, 8GB of mem, and an HD6750 graphics card, running Win7.

    I have an old faithful HD4890 in my old i7 920 rig (1920x1200 and 1600x1200 display , 18GB ram, old intel SSD). Driver support has ended for the old card and it doesn't support the latest graphical feature sets. And the old card uses a lot of power and produces a lot of excess heat. I would be quite curious as to what heat, power, noise, and performance improvements could be had from the R7 250 card. While it might be more of a lateral improvement overall, it would be nice to not have to disable certain graphical features that completely choke the old HD4890 and for the computer to not sound like a space heater when playing a taxing game. Won't be able to upgrade the rig for quite some time, so anything would be nice to experience. Reply

    Right now my main desktop is a has only integrated graphics. Given, they're the integrated graphics from an A10-7850k, but since it's powering a 1080p monitor, I don't often get the graphical quality I'd like when gaming. Winning an R7 250 would not only give me a chance to benefit from the card itself, but also a chance to benefit from dual graphics. Reply

    I currently run 2 Nvidia GTX 470 i bought a couple years back. They handle games pretty well but its time to retire these cards and upgrade. Running 2 R7 250 will make my system closer to competing with my wife's gaming machine which has 2 MSI AMD 7850 in crossfire. So if i win i will buy a second R7 250 and run them in Crossfire and this would give me the opportunity to run the new Mantle API. Plus i wouldnt feel so dominated by my wife's awesome crossfire setup which runs Battlefield 4 settings maxed out on a 25" 1080p HD monitor (she gets all the good eye candy). So help me catch up with her computer. That for sure is a good and just cause. Reply

    My system is a few years old, quad core, 4gb of DDR3, 600w power supply. All components carefully picked by me to offer good performance with low-ish noise, heat and energy consumption. Not silent, but as quiet and efficient as I could get without major trade-offs. The system had an MSI GeForce 560ti Frozr 2, which was a great card, but my brother's video card died and I let him "borrow" mine until he could buy a new one. That was over a year ago, and I've been using my laptop ever since. If I won this contest, I could literally ressurect my system and get back to fragging. Reply

    I'm currently on an AMD 3700 with a gig of OCZ Platinum ddr 600 ram and an ASRock 939 sata II motherboard. My video card is a lowly 7800gt that really wasn't all that great when I bought it in 2006 with the rest of my components. The worst part is I'm a hardcore gamer that just can't afford a computer to play any new games and is therefore stuck playing WoW and other ancient titles to pass the time. Last week I ordered a 4670k and am contemplating ordering an open box motherboard just to avoid getting something cheap. A new video card isn't in the budget just yet and I was planning on reusing my 7800gt until I can afford a proper one. Winning this card would be just great as it would complete my build and finally bring me out of the computing stone ages. Give the card to someone who could really use it, someone who really will use it. Me. Reply

    250GB IDE hard drive
    Radeon HD 4850 video card

    Honestly, I would use the card to upgrade my aging system and the one I am saving up to build. My system suffered some damage from a storm 3 years back and also damaged my card's functions so it's been steadily degrading in performance. An upgrade to the R7 250 would save me from a lot of frustrations with current performance problems as well as help me to upgrade my PC system in the future.

    I have an AMD FX-4130 with 4g RAM. It works ok with my PNY GeF 210. I can play simple games like SuperTuxKart and It Came From Space and Ate our Brains, but anything more serious chokes it up pretty badly. Streaming video from some sources, works ok, but in other cases, it's extremely laggy. My FPS on Team Fortress 2 is in the low teens. I don't have the latest rig even without the awful GPU, but it could hold it's own if it had a better card. I would really like to try out the Radeon card with my Linux machine. I run Linux Mint 16 Petra primarily because of how well it handles proprietary drivers. I havent ever tried an AMD card with it and would be very eager to do so. Thanks! Reply

    The 1 GB of VRAM would be a welcome upgrade from the 320 MB that my current card has; the stuttering caused by loading in textures from main memory has been starting to get on my nerves. I’ve put off upgrading my computer because my wife and I have been saving up for a house, but depending on how well dual-graphics mesh with Kaveri I might be able to make an exception. :-)

By using my 1080p big screen dlp TV in my living room along with a wireless keyboard mouse gamepad combo... Right now I have been playing a lot of BF4 on this system and I was hoping with the new Mantle enabled patch that this setup would handle the game at 1080p without any issues but its just not quite enough GPU muscle to do so.... I would love to CrossFire an R7-250 with this setup and Mantle and show to the world that AMD is a great value proposition and that one could get all the playability as a PS4 or Xbox for less money and added abilities that a Home Computer can offer that those game systems cannot..... Because BF4 gets a Choppy at 1080p I am forced to run at 780p and medium quality settings... Help me AMD and AnandTech help me turn my home gaming rig into the system I know that it can and should be!! Thank you in advance for your consideration Reply

I have built every other PC I have ever owned, but when my old PC died, (motherboard's southbridge went out) a friend of mine gave me this one to hold me over until I can save some money to build a new one. My old PC had an Asus 880G motherboard and a Phenom II 255 unlocked to 4 core and a Radeon X850 XT. The X850 XT does not want to work in the Lenovo for some reason. The Mobo does not recognize it. I mostly use my computer to browse the internet, edit photos in Photoshop, watch Netflix and to play a few casual games. A Radeon R7 250 would be perfect to accelerate Photoshop and allow me to play the casual games that I really like, such as Diablo and Torchlight. I cannot play any games right now due to the fact that I do not have a video card that is capable of it. The new video card would also allow me to use my dual monitor setup again. Reply

It's never really been able to play games at a decent framerate or resolution, but until recently worked great with Windows + XBMC providing a 10 foot interface. Now it needs a bit more umph to play current Blu-ray discs or BD rips, of which the onboard APU doesn't have any hardware acceleration support for!

    If I win the Radeon R7 250, I'll use it in a new Kaveri-based HTPC box that will double up as a Steam Box for some light gaming. Mantle makes it all the better!

    I have a Core i3 4130 with 8GB of RAM but my current graphics card is a GTX 550. It needs an upgrade for me to be able to play more modern games. I have my PC connected to a 40" 1080p TV. I mainly game but also use my set up to watch Amazon Prime HD video. I want to be able to run Elder Scrolls Online and Dragon Age: Inquisition. I love my ITX set up and think the R7 250 would fit in it nicely. Thanks for being awesome AnandTech! Reply

    I bought my computer from costco using my parent money 3 years ago. It's a Dx4320-02e with fair components but is very limited with graphics. It has an ATI Radeon HD 4250 integrated graphics card and I have been playing games at bare minimum settings at 1024x768 getting 10-18 fps avg. Having this brand new graphics card would bring a whole new world of gaming to all my games which has been for years a very bland experience. It would be like going from watching movies in black and white on a crt monitor to Full Definition HD 1080p LED Screen. It would mean everything to have this experience which is now common for most gamers. Reply

    My system, though dated, has kept me happy for 6 years. A first generation pci-e slot filled with a 512 pro 1600 ATI Radeon gpu is adequate for most tasks. It resides in my intel MB with a Core 2 Duo cpu and 2 GB of Ram. XP made way for Windows 7 a few years ago. Lately have downloaded some less graphically intensive steam games thinking I might be able connect with my teenage sons. My beloved system grunts and groans and offers barely playable frame rates -- it works but I know it could be so much smoother. A few more GB of Ram and this video card would enable me to enjoy this aging but able box for another few years (I would even cannibalize parts for my next build). Reply

    My 6850 died a few months ago and I've been using my backup 6570. I'd get something a bit more powerful if I had the money to spare but an R7 250 will work well enough for the time being. I'm able to play most of my games with much lowered settings now but I'd still like to be able to play all of my games, I can no longer capture game play which isn't that big of a deal but I miss my freedom.

While I think it's still a great card, I need to move into the new generation, which is also lighter on power usage and heat output. Everything I have read about the R7 250 tells me that it would be a great upgrade, while letting me enjoy some of the new features AMD has been adding. Reply

    The computer I am using to write this post with was built in late 2006. It is a C2Duo with 2GB RAM, an ATI AIW X1900, a SSD and Windows 7. I'm interested in the R7 250 because it would be a quantum leap in graphics processing capability. I can't even get an ATI driver for the AIW since Windows Vista. I would use the R7 250 for video games, video playback, editing, and distributed computing activities.

    Please thank AMD for providing the GPUs.

    I would like this card to replace my GTX 460, which recently had one of the two fans fail. I've added another case fan to compensate, but my computer is rather noisy now. My current system has an AMD 1090t, but I've only been able to overclock to 3.5 ghz. I hope that with the lower power draw of the R7 250, I'll be able to push that OC higher due to less heat in my case. I mainly use my computer for watching 1080p video and playing some older games, so the R7 250 would be perfect for my uses. I also run BOINC distributed computing, and the lower wattage of the R7 250 would save me some on my power bill. Not having to upgrade my PSU for this card is another plus. Reply

    - 26" monitor running 1900x1200
    - 500w PSU

    The games I play that tax the old Radeon are my driving/racing games. Both Grid 2 and Euro Truck Simulator have a tough time pushing more than 30fps at my native resolution even on Medium detail settings. I would like to be closer to 60fps at High detail settings for a better gaming experience.

    I currently am using a Kaveri A10-7700k in my HTPC. Currently it is used for movies, recorded tv programs, and Netflix. It would be awesome to add the R7-250 to increase the performance enough to play some newer game titles at medium to low setting on my big screen.
    Good Luck all!

    My wife currently plays her games on a 4 year old laptop and it really cannot keep up with the games she plays (Mainly Action RPGs like The Witcher and Dragon Age). Since I built myself a little mITX rig she has been begging me to build her one too. Unfortunately, like all good budget keepers, until the money is there to buy the whole thing she is going to have to wait. The Powercolor Radeon R7 250 would put me, and my wife, one large step closer to her getting her little mITX gaming rig. Thanks again for the giveaway, AndandTech! Reply

    I have an older (4ish years) Asus computer with a Core2Duo E8400 (originally a Pentium E5300), DDR2 memory and an Asus HD 6570. I have since built a newer FX 6300 rig with crossfire 7850s, but it would be fun to replace the HD 6570 (with GDDR3) with the R7 250 (with GDDR5) and see what the performance boost is. I had a 7850 in the older computer before I completed my new build, and the Core2 was outmatched; it would be nice to see if the R7 is good pairing. Thanks! Reply
  • rcarlos243 - Saturday, March 22, 2014 - link

    I am currently using an old cpu (Core 2 Duo E7200) and an old gpu (nvidia gt 430) on my computer.

    The reason i want to get the Radeon R7 250 is firstly because I want to leverage the Mantle capability since i have an old dual core CPU and I heard that Mantle overcomes the bottleneck caused by the cpu by processing the draw calls directly on the GPU which help especially on CPU demanding games such as Battlefield 4 which is unfortunatly unplayable on my system as both my cpu and GPU is not powerful enough.

    I also would like to utilize the GPU acceleration in video transcoding/editing as it take ages on my CPU to transcode/edit my videos to mobile format so I could watch them on my phone and I heard claims that AMD APP acceleration provides up to 5x faster video transcode.

    I would also love to be able to atleast be able to play games at medium-high settings instead of usually low (so i can play games at decent FPS) that i have been acustomed with and atleast be able to try the very latest games especially since the R7 250 have 1GB of memory as opposed to my GT 430 that has only 512MB of vram that force me to play on very low resolution.

    Last but not the least, I really like the Radeon R7 250 because of relatively low power consumption since I watch alot of videos with MADVR renderer which causes my GPU to be maxed out and having the R7 250 would allow me to increase the image quality by using a higher upscaling preset and hopefully benefit from newer hardware video acceleration.

    I cant really afford to buy a whole new system so I would love to have the Radeon R7 250.

    I recently donated my old HD5670 for his first PC build and unfortunately it appears to be dead so he is reduced to onboard graphics until he can save up enough money to buy a video card.
    His set up is
    CPU: i5 @ 3.1GHz quad
    Mobo: MSI B85M-G43
    RAM: Crucial 2x4GB DDR3-1600
    Disk: WD 1TB

    His main reason for this build was to replace his aging laptop for school work and break into PC gaming. But with onboard graphics he is unable to play even the least demanding games. A R7 250 would be the perfect card to get him started on playing most games.

    Currently running a Phenom X2 unlocked to 4 cores on a motherboard with integrated 890 graphics which is pretty much butchering my gaming performance. So much so, that I've underclocked to 2Ghz@0.9375 volts to reduce power consumption to well below sub 50W without losing any significant performance in the games I play. The sad part is this CPU is rock stable at 4GHz (albeit at a power draw of over 150W) so it just seems like wasted potential. In fact this R7-250 would be the best card I can run on my rig with this older power supply without PCI-E power connectors. Reply

Failure to recognize hardware device and vendor ID, driver induced game issues, and topping it off was moving to legacy driver support a year after launch. When I upgraded my main computer (Phenom II X4 965) and HTPC (Athlon X2 7750) last year, I changed both to Nvidia; unfortunately I could not upgrade the wife's laptop's Mobility 4650. And so my HD4850's went to my parents and sister. Now is the chance for AMD to improve their image to me. I look forward to comparing this card to my HTPC's current GT 640. :-) Reply

    My config: core2 duo 2.6 GZ on an Intel DP43BF motherbard, 8GB DDR 3 RAM Memory, Intel SSD 120 GB , N'Vidia 7900GS video card. The video card seems to be the bottleneck of this configuration, I believe it would do significantly better with a newer card. I certainly can use a faster card with more video memory, for not only everday tasks but also video downloads and video games. Thanks for your consideration. Reply

    I have an old Phenom X II 3.2GHz system with 8 GB of RAM on a Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H mobo...with a Gigabyte HD 7950 and a Sapphire R9 280X in Crossfire for LTC mining. Through various upgrades, I have pieces left over, minus a video card and mobo, to put together an HTPC for media and light gaming. The R7 250 would fit the bill, and I would have a good excuse to upgrade my mining rig's mobo and CPU, then use the replaced setup in the HTPC. Reply

    My current desktop is a Phenom II X4 910 on the 990FX platform, 8GB RAM, and a Radeon HD 4670 powering two 1080p IPS monitors.

    I'm a web developer by trade, so my current GPU is okay for most day-to-day tasks. But there are two areas where more GPU compute power would make a big difference:

    1. 3D scene rendering with open source tools including Blender and LuxRender. Anyone who's read a recent AnandTech GPU review knows AMD's GCN architecture excels at LuxRender. The R7 250 would be a major boost in this department. Most of my render jobs are simple scenes, so the 1GB VRAM is not a limitation in my case.

    2. Gaming. I don't play many cutting-edge titles, but Civ V, Torchlight II, and Skyrim would be a lot more playable with the new card. I would love to experiment with multi-monitor gaming as well, which is a bit much for my current GPU.

    Thanks for putting on this contest! Looking forward to writing my review :)

    Since I didn't win the last one:

    Using a circa 2009 Xeon with 8GB DDR3 and a HD5830. Still works great for me, but it's ability to play games at a reasonable resolution ran out a few years ago. I avoid upgrading to maintain my productivity to be honest. This card would let me lower the power consumption significantly and keep this computer in service for a few more years (and maybe even attempt to play a circa 2012 game or two).

    LOL at all the people STILL completely ignoring the entry requirements.

  • ThePooBurner - Sunday, March 23, 2014 - link

    My current setup:
    Radeon HD 4850 1gig @ 1080p via HDMI to a Toshiba Regza 32" tv
    Phenom IIx6 1090T Black Edition @ 3.2ghz
    4gig (2x2) DDR2 @ 533.4mhz (3:8 FSB:DRAM. I forget the speed it's actually running at)
    Asus M3a78-T mobo with the 790GX/SB700 chitset
    Antec Earthwatts 380W PSU
    Various HDDs totaling 5TB of storage, with 300gig of that being a WD VelociRaptor where the OS sits. ~850gig of that is games (762gig of that is my steam library alone).

    The system isn't exactly steller by today's standards. I built it ~5 years ago with an Athlon64-X2 3800+, later upgrading to the Phenom in ~2010. My plan was to do a tick-tock upgrade with CPU and GPU, and then Mobo & Ram, taking advantage of the socket compatability that AMD offers. However, things got tight and i never got to upgrade, and then i got busy and didn't game as much as i used to, so the rig has held steady doing everything i have asked of it. I have been looking at finally doing the Mobo and RAM soon, but haven't really had the incentive. This video card, while it wouldn't exactly be a huge upgrade for me performance wise (at least as far as BENCH makes it seem), but it would be something. The main benefit would be that i would be able to use current drivers rather than the legacy drivers that don't get updates near as often, and it would also use less power and most likely be quieter under load than what i've currently got. And since i never turn the PC off, having a quieter computer in general would be nice for while i'm sleeping.
    Another benefit to being the winner is that once i do upgrade the Mobo & ram, since i still have the old Athlon, i would be able to throw the old card into it and have a 2nd computer for the wife to use to game with (since her laptop isn't exactly up to the task), and playing co-op games with her that aren't limited to Local CO-OP would be nice.
    I tend to play games with all settings at max, even if it lowers the frame rate into the 20's because I feel that that is how the developers intended the game to be played (looks, not frame rate), and in order to truly appreciate a game it needs to be played the way the Devs wanted it played. The frame rate might be bad, but it still gives a sense of the immersive feel that was intended. And since most of the games i play are Source or UR3 based it's still worked out pretty good for me.

    So whether I *need* the GPU or not is a matter of opinion, since i've been content with what i've had for so long. I want the card because it would provide a decent bump to what i've got now, allow for better driver support, reduce power consumption, reduce noise, and give the option of building a 2nd computer really easily if i upgrade the Mobo & RAM of my current setup. And it would save me money. How i would use the card is to continue gaming the way i already have, and the way i think the Devs would want me to, but with improved framerates (which the devs would also approve of). I might also get around to playing some of the more modern games i bought on steam sales, but haven't fired up yet because i know i can't really play on max yet (and because it takes a while to work your way through a game library of 200 games. Those darn sales are just too good to pass up sometimes).

    Case: Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case
    Power Supply: SeaSonic G 550W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

    My current system is a first generation Phenom with 4GBs of ram and a recently added SSD. I'm currently running a GeForce 8500 GT, which can barely play games from 6 years ago. I've built up my gaming library over the years (via sales), but haven't been able to play any of them. Rather than building an entirely new computer, adding the PowerColor Radeon R7 250 would breath new life into my machine. I would be able to play my entire library of games without any issue. The PowerColor Radeon R7 250 is perfect for my system because, at only 65W, I don't need to buy a new power supply with a 6 pin connector to run this card. Reply

    Currently have a Core 2 Duo overclocked to 4.16Ghz and was running HD 4850 in Sli.

I understand my processor is a bottleneck but with Mantle I might see better than expected improvement without a large upgrade cost. In addition to this, I am curious to see how the reduced power consumption would affect my overall performance due to lowered thermals, possibly allowing to push my air cooled processor even higher.

It's one weakness (well, two - I have no SSD) is it's aging nvidia GTS 250 - it's a bottleneck when simming on FSX with PMDG's latest aircraft which gives the system one heck of a workout. Now, the Oc'd i7-920 is still competitive with more modern CPU's - at least the mid-range ones anyway, but this new Radeon will bring my system back "into balance". Thanks! Reply

    I could use this card because my old evga GT 430 died over a month ago. Since then, I've been using my FX 4170's integrated graphics (which really suck). I'm a student so I have no money to spend on computer parts right now. I could finally play FSX and my other sim games if I got a card like this. Winning this awesome graphics card would mean a lot to me. Reply

    I'd appreciate a shot at this! I've just gutted my old superflower case for an Asus z87 Plus mobo which will still give me use of my old dvd-rw drive. A Haswell i5 (not overclocked) all powered by Seasonic 650W. I hope that gives me enough power should I decide (and save up) for a GPU upgrade, but as currently I do not have one, the 250 will be perfect! Thanks Reply

    I currently have a built that is around 6 years old:
    AMD II x2 270 (Updated from fried mobo)
    6 GBs of Patriot 1600MHz CL 11 RAM
    9500GT
    500GB Caviar Blue
    Generic 300-400W PSU

    This R7 250 matters to me because of my family's financial situation; I'd love to give my son a graphics card in place of his 9500GT to let him enjoy the games he likes without most of them being unplayable above 1024x768. He has been a long time gamer but has never had the opportunity to fully experience gaming at its pinnacle. This card matters to me because it represents a way I can help my son in our cash-strapped situation.

    Current Setup
    Streacom FC8WS EVO
    Intel Core-i5 3570k
    Samsung 840 EVO 120GB SSD
    G.Skill Sniper Low Voltage Series - 8GB DDR3

    PicoPSU 160XT + 192w Adapter
    Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 1GB
    Seiki 39" 4K Ultra HD TV

    My low end 7750 actually did pretty decently even with current games at 1080p, but now that I have a 4K TV, I'd really like to play games at 4K, especially if I could play them at higher detail levels. Unfortunately the 7750 doesn't do so well with current games at 4K even at their lowest detail levels. The R7 250 would handle that task much better. It'd mean I'd have to get a new case, but I think I would be ok with that :)

    Current system is an aged QX6700 workhorse with a Radeon 5670 HD. The system still works well, but it shows its age for a lot of programs, especially graphics intensive applications like games. I use the system mostly for day-to-use, some video and picture editing, and occasional gaming. Part of the reason I don't play more PC games is because of the cost of continuously upgrading hardware to keep up with the latest software. Right now I play Rome 2 on pretty much its lowest settings. It'd be nice to upgrade this aspect of my system. Reply

So should I use some epoxy and glue it back on?, or source a new fan from ebay? Or hey send me one of these new cards to use! I'll be nice to it and not even snap a fan blade off with my fat finger.

    My current PC setup is a Corsair Obsidian 250D case with an AMD A10-7850K. The Radeon R7 250 would be a great addition to my build by allowing me to use Kaveri's "dual graphics" capability for an increase in performance. I'd use the Radeon R7 250 to game with on 1080p and when not gaming I'll have the dual graphics setup contribute to Folding@Home. Reply

    I have been using my current build, a AMD Phenom II X4 980 with an ATi 3870 for a while now. It is a home theatre and video game computer for my families TV. The build works well, although it tends to run hotter and a bit louder than I would like for computer near my TV. I don't play games on max quality because its a TV that sits far enough away where you can't tell much of a difference, and even on the lower/medium settings it still looks better than most console games. I expect that this card should be able to bring better performance at a cooler temperature and create less noise. Reply

    I would love to win this card as I currently have a computer in my house serving dual purpose activities. It is a desktop which is also configured to run as a DLNA server. The computer config is Althon X2 250 processor (undervolted), Integrated Radeon HD 4200 graphics, 1 TB boot drive, 2 X 2TB data drives (raid 1), Blue Ray/DVD burner.
    I try to use the machine for light gaming sometimes (Diablo III) but it struggles pretty bad. I would use it more often if I had a more capable graphics card.
    This machine is also used to rip and convert both BlueRay and DVDs into mp4s that can be served as media. Currently the process takes forever. An AMD graphics card would let me offload the conversion process and speed it up quite a bit.

    I'm currently running a fairly high powered main rig with an AMD Radeon 7950 and Intel i7-3820 on an EVGA x79 SLI board. The reason I'd like a R7 250 is that I don't always need this amount of power and I want to convert my storage server into a capable, low-power storage server/HTPC that can handle my media needs without having to power up my main rig. I'm currently using an old WiFi enabled blu-ray player for my media center, but it has an absolutely horrible interface and very bad/limited apps for internet streaming and I need to replace it. With some minor tweaks and a decent graphics card (R7 250!) I could set up a great little HTPC to handle all of my needs. Reply

    My usage of this card would be that of an HTPC with possible attempts at using it for light gaming via steam for linux. I'm a tweaker and right now I've got an old Core 2 Duo (E8650) on an ECS BLACK SERIES P45T-A with 4 GB of assorted DDR2-800. This pc was my gaming machine until about 4 years ago when it got replaced, then it came back as a home server until it was replaced in that aspect again. The machine, at the moment, is being run by an Nvidia 430 that I bought a year or two ago as a secondary GPU to power extra monitors for a different computer. The image quality looks nice on a 70 inch Sharp LC-70LE650U, but it has issues in the latest beta openelec when rendering things with certain types of de-interlacing.

    Basically I'd like to just take the card through the paces and see just how powerful hardware of this cost is now; it's been ages since I've bought a lower range card and seen just how it runs paired with an older CPU (someone who would buy this card would likely be running a similar setup). A few steam games, a fun run at mining just to see how it performs, then probably straight back to HTPC work playing with video upscaling (MADVR) settings and de-interlacing. I currently own a 7970, a laptop with a 7970m, and a 270x from AMD and a 650ti from nvidia. It'd be neat to see where it placed amoungst those cards.

    My videocard is what needs upgraded most (over 5 years old). I would really like to move up to the 256 bit interface cards like the HD 7850, but Id be satisfied with the R7 250 if I got it. The price is half what the older 7850's are, and have less than half the performance. But the R7 250 still kicks the snot out of the old 4650. I use my system for CAD and rendering, a more powerful card would encourage me to look into ways to push this work to my GPU. If I got this card, Id want to do some research and benchmarks on the rendering capabilities of it. Also be interesting in how well it offloads processing of H.264 to the videocard. Being much newer, i would hope to get lower CPU usage during media decoding.

    I currently have an old salvaged Dell workstation in use as a HTPC in my living room. The Pentium 4 processor in it runs hot. My only spare video card I had to use in the system is a nVidia 8800 GTX. Both the processor and the GPU contribute enough heat to the poorly ventilated Dell chassis that I do experience throttling under moderate workloads. The Radeon R7 250 could help mitigate my heat issues until I can afford to upgrade this computer. The fact that the 250 also has an HDMI output will help simplify my connections as well. Reply

    Dear AMD,
    I'd really love to put a R7 250 to use in my PC. I have a Core2duo system at this time with an aging GF 8800GT which is a hot powerhog that is all but useless these days. I'd love to upgrade to a new power efficient GPU from AMD to handle mid-resolution gaming, drive dual monitors for productivity, and handle video decode. I think this value focused card would fit the bill. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

    My current setup is a small form factor system with a 65W Trinity A6, no discrete graphics, and a low-wattage PSU.

    I'd be interested in better graphics for gaming, but any GPU which requires an additional power connector is out of the question- my PSU doesn't provide such a connector, the 12V amperage would exceed what the PSU is capable of, and even if I replaced the PSU with a 350W+ SFX unit, cooling the PSU and the card would push the thermal limitations of the case.

    The R7 250 is low-wattage enough and cool enough to work in this system, and the upgrade would make a large difference for gaming (from the benchmarks I see, it looks like the R7 250 is a little over 3x as fast).

    I have been thinking that later this year I might replace my current motherboard and CPU and get the A8-7600. If I do that, using the R7 250 for dual graphics could give me a further boost.

    I currently run an Nvidia 650 video card although I normally use Radeon cards in all my builds. What drove me to jump ship was an incompatibility between my last Radeon 7650 video card and Rappelz. Only when running that game would I get constant graphic errors and blue screens. I read many other people having similar issues so I decided to go with an Nvidia card this time around. I know that Rappelz is not the most demanding of games in the 3d department but I also do some 3D gaming, though generally not FPS as I get motion sick. I would like to jump back to the Radeon as I've always been a fan of AMD products. Reply

    I use quite a few different computers, but I don't play many games. I primarily alternate between using a Macbook Air for portability and pretty substantial Lenovo workstation when I can be stationary. The R7 250 would be inappropriate for most of what I do: Integrated/intel graphics are powerful enough for most of my work, but when they are not, the R7 250 is not powerful enough either.
    There is one place, however, where I would like to put this card to good use: I maintain a very low budget computer lab at a school. It mostly gets used for printing papers and filling out college applications, but it gets occasional use for desktop publishing and student programming projects. At the heart of this lab is an old dual processor nehalem workstation. The system creates a single terminal for each display output. I need cards that can push pixels to as many displays as possible for the lowest price. The R7 could give allow more terminals without the significant cost of FirePro parts or the power drain of Eyefinity 6 cards.
    I would love to have one so I can test out driver compatibility. Though my lab is based on Windows Server 2008r2, it does not always play nicely with drivers.

    I'm an engineering grad student, using a computer I built in high school (Core 2 Quad, 4Gb RAM, GTX 260). That GTX 260 is way too loud and power hungry, and I'm in need of an upgrade, now that my focus has shifted away from gaming and on to engineering software. The R7 250 is much more efficient, and I know it'll still allow me to use the software I need in a much more efficient way. I want to experiment with GPU acceleration in MATLAB, do a lot of photo editing, and use SolidWorks as well. I am also limited to two monitors with my current card, and the R7 250 can support up to 3. Reply

Since the latest round of Xorg / kernel updates the 3870x2 is no longer supported by AMD so, I am looking for a new video card. A free card would be good as I just recently upgraded to the FX processor thinking my 3870x2 would still work which, as it turns out, did not happen.

    The new card would be used as a video decoder/encoder (if possible in Linux) and of course a gaming card. I might throw in some Bitcoin mining just to see how fruitless (or not) that would be.

    This would certainly be better than my old ATI (yes, ATI) card. It would tide me over until I build a new system (whenever the cryptocurrency trend stops wildly inflating GPU prices).
    My current system was top-of-the-line almost a decade ago, and pretty much all the components have aged well. Except the GPU. I've been toying with getting an R7 250 as a bridge between my current and hopefully-soon future PC. A review for AMD would be a negligible price to pay for this

    My system is definitely aged but it still runs most games, Most recent new release being Far Cry 3. The graphics card performs noticeably better than a PS4 but gets very loud at times. Even while watching a movie, if I leave other programs running. It's loud to the point I can hear it over action scenes/games over my 7.1 system. My PC is hooked up to my AV Receiver via HDMI which connects to my TV. A DVI goes to my monitor.

    Decided to try my hand at building an htpc after my old Lenovo laptop quit. Had to be on the cheap so I used an old case lying around, a6-5400k, 430w psu, crucial 4gb ram, biostar mobo and the 1tb hard drive from the lenovo. Unfortunately that was all my budget allowed. No cable so mainly used for movies and streaming video but my daughter loves minecraft and any lego game. Think the card would be a perfect addition. Reply

College and life expenses are taking what little money I have :/ My current setup: Intel Core i3-2100, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 128GB HDD, ATi 5670 (1GB) Reply

    Well my current PC specs are:
    CPU : Intel Dual Core E7200
    RAM: 4GB 1333(OC)
    GPU: Intel X4500(Current), HD3850(old gpu, broken)
    MB: Asrock G41
    OS: Windows 7/XP 64 (Dual OS)

    The reason i would like to win this card is, mine broke a year ago. I was using an ATI Radeon HD3850. I miss playing Crysis, Crysis Wars, Word in Conflict and The Witcher. I used to play these at 1440 resolution or lower if needed on medium/high settings. The AMD R7 250 seems to be a good card to replace the HD3850 and put me back on gaming. The R7 250 may considered low profile, but it packs a lot of power against the HD3850. The AMD R7 250 surely will revive my gaming rig and for the better, it will enable my rig to newer games.

    I am used this PC for mostly for programming in Open-CL. I had a Radeon 5850 and used to do a lot of gamming before but unfortunately I sold it because of an emergency.
    If I get this card I can do some gamming,expect better performance in Open-CL applications and do all this with less power consumption.

    boy...my old ATI Radeon 4850 is starting to go. It shows errors on video stress test. My ASUS P5E3 Deluxe with 2 G is still puttering along, as is my INTEL core 2 quad Q9450 @ 2.66 GHz. My Crucial C300 SATA III is nearly full with Windows 32 bit VS 7. If I didn't have a WD 500G secondary drive I would be done. Installed in a wooden Chief retro case, it has 100% WAF. SO, just a simple video upgrade would fix me up fine. FYI, I have been using a panasonic 50" plasma for over 5 years at 1366 x 806 32bit without a spec of a hint of burn-in. This system runs from 12 noon to 10 pm, 7 days a week. Please pick me! Reply

    I'm a student and my budget is very limited, since I'm only able to work on weekends. Receiving a ~$100 piece of hardware would help me an immense amount in paying for my current computer build.

    I would use this card on a PC build which would provide me with a platform for audio editing, 3D modeling, light video editing, and gaming. I'm an aspiring musician and game developer; this card would provide me with the power I need for my projects. I don't currently have a desktop computer, only a locked-down laptop provided by my school (I don't even have permission to install applications).

    If I do win this card, in addition to the text review; I'll write, record, and mix a song and video detailing my experience with the contest and the card itself.

    I've progressively upgraded my "value" build over the past 8 years. My last video card upgrade was a Radeon 4870 purchased 3 years ago - and it has tied me over quite well since then.

    However, I recently moved and my utility costs have increased dramatically. I'm also traveling a lot... so I've decided to convert my desktop from being 24/7 powered to focus on being silent and "instant on", like my ultrabook.

    To that end, I've picked up a lower wattage E8400 CPU, 240gb Crucial SSD and Corsair CX430 PSU. I've tossed the water cooler and installed a tower cooler with low speed fan. The last piece to the puzzle would be updating the video card.

    My view has always been updating to the latest generation CPU / motherboard / ram is cost prohibitive (and not future proof). I believe updating the GPU and hard disk should improve casual gaming / daily performance the most given the $ spent. I intend to put that to the test.

    My wife plays a lot of WoW and is squeaking by on an older Dell Dimension that I managed to (literally) cram an Nvidia 8800 GTS w/320 MB into. The system has 3GB RAM, 3.6 GHz P4 and just got a 120 GB SSD but is still short of full background gameplay with black and gray making up the horizon. No more budget for upgrades, so maybe this card would be enough to crank the graphics up that extra notch. Thanks for the review and opportunity to win one! Reply
