Contest: AMD Radeon R7-250 Video Card

Today, I am taking a look at the AMD Radeon R7-250 video card. This is a sub $100 card perfect for those getting into gaming, or just want to extend their desktop computers for another year.

Enter below for a chance to win the R7-250 card

The MSI R7 250 video card is a PCI-E slot card running Direct X 11.2. The card needs 65 watts of power, so you might not have to upgrade the power supply.

The card has a DVI-D, HDMI and VGA interface, but can also be set up to run with another video card. The AMD ZeroCore Power technology adjusts the power usage.

This card also comes with afterburner so you can overclock the card by up to 85%. Fan speed control will help you keep from overheating the card. Ultimately, the memory clock runs at 1.15 GHz with GDDR5 memory of 1 GB (2 GB versions also available), and a 128 bit memory bus for about 73 GB/second memory bandwidth.

The card can also be controlled wirelessly via iOS or Android app. From there, you can adjust speed and over-clocking of the card.

Overall, this is a sufficient card for updating your desktop for video or gaming. In creating video, it allowed me to create the videos fine, but the render took a lot longer than the current card I had in it. If you are just editing simple videos without graphic overlays, your results will be faster.

If you are looking for a companion video card, need something to connect more than one monitor or just want to update a system, the R7 250 is a competent video card for the price point.

    Yeahhhhh I’m running off a Laptop with Intel HD 3000 graphics… Planing on building a PC so that I can actually start to go semi-pro (Eventually pro) in SMITE. barely achieving 30 fps on a good day and then having massive drops in frames every few minutes is really keeping me from that. I don’t have all the money right now and I don’t need a beast PC because I’m fine playing the game on the lowest settings, I play for the game not for the looks. Please I would love this.

    Hope I win!

    I’m currently using my Integrated GPU in my AMD A10 6800 APU which I think equates to a Radeon HD 6750. If I won I would use the MSI R7 250 as a dedicated card and possibly crossfire it with my A-10 APU.
