By Jose Gloria
Went into this not expecting much more than an average card. Was more than impressed by the performance. The card itself sits well and is not overly big by all means. It can easily max out most modern titles at 60fps without breaking a sweat but will have to be toned down just a bit for more graphically intensive games. One of the better mid-range cards i've used and was actually my first venture into an AMD card. After noticing the strengths I went ahead and purchased another one for another build I was working on. One negative side note would be the RAPTR game recording software it comes with. It is horrible and caused many unknown crashes on many of my games. Once I turned off the overlay and capture feature everything ran smoothly.

So far so good. I upgraded to this R7 370 4g card to replace an aging Radeon 3870 HD in my Dell XPS 420. It is a pretty significant upgrade from what I had before. I did not really need to replace my 435w power supply with this card since the power draw was within 5w of my old card, but I went ahead and swapped out the old Dell 435w psu to a new Sentey 750w psu just to be safe. This card is extremely quiet and runs cool. Benchmarks are right where they should be based on what I've seen in online reviews. Mine is actually fast even though my motherboard only supports PCIe 2.0. So far my only gripe is that I can't watch any videos above 1080p without slow down and skipped frame rates in YouTube. I don't believe this is the fault of the card though so much as it is my aging motherboard that can't keep up. 1080p plays fine for both games and videos so I think it's just my old computer. If you have a faster newer computer, you results will no doubt be better than mine. My processor is a Core 2 quad 6700 with 8gig DDR2 800mhz ram. I bought this card mostly to beef up my old computer to get it ready for Windows 10 which I installed already. This card uses the AMD catalyst software so you can go directly to AMD's site and get the latest and greatest drivers. Windows 10 reached out and did the upgrade to the Windows 10 version of Catalyst automatically during the upgrade process so I didn't have to mess with it. So far the card works perfectly with no noted issues in Windows 10 so for those of you wondering if this card will work correctly out of the box in Windows 10, I can say YES you will have no worries.

Perfect External Setup
By Chris Hernandez
Like most, my intention was to purchase components for an upgrade. I then stray from the norm...
My goal was to stretch more life out of a Dell Zino 410 HD HTPC, which is being used within an arcade cabinet. The Zino is primarily built out of notebook guts, and is limited by the onboard Mobility Radeon HD 5450 graphics. So the mission was to shoehorn in a desktop-level graphics card. My DIY hack consisted of the EXP GDC Beast Laptop External Independent Video Card Dock V8.0 - "Mini PCI-E Version," the MSI AMD Radeon R7 360 graphics card, the EVGA 500W 80 PLUS power supply, and an enclosure crafted at a Michaels Art Supply store.
The improved Zino OC ("on crack") doubles its previous graphics performance thanks to the nicely priced MSI AMD Radeon R7 360, and it's power demands are picked up by the EVGA 500W 80 PLUS power supply. The EVGA has the performance and capability to power more expansions, and everything runs cool and quiet. Total cost at and around $250!
