it will be nice for old games (like 2012 and bellow) well, apart from the slightly broken AF;
current (2015+) games are bad because they lack support for non GCN Radeons, so you wont get a working CF and worse some games are very glitched (others might work OK, but you also have to fight with low vram) with crashes and artifacts.
IMO don't waste your time and money with Radeons older than GCN, support is dead, better to buy a Fermi card if you want something from before 2012.
realistically is better to buy something like a RX460 or 1050, those are some very nice gaming cards for moderate settings and power usage is also nicer.
back on topic, any other reviews for the 550? most websites seem to have ignored it, I would also like to see how well it works for youtube VP9 acceleration.Edited by HMBR - 4/27/17 at 4:22pm
