Summary: Oh, the card/GPU works fine. MSI is getting only 1 star because of their underhanded Rebate tactics; this is the SECOND MSI PRODUCT where they've tried to disqualify paying the Rebate and caused MASSIVE trouble to jump thru their ridiculous hoop maze when they should've simply honored it as it WAS...
Pros: I bought this card to replace the Intel Integrated HD graphics on my Core i5 Dell 660s. The card is prety much entry level, I can play Minecraft at 300fps on all high settings and play BF3 on medium settings at around 50fps. Stays at 32c on idle and 77c on full load.
Cons: After 3 months the fan died on me and replaced it with an 80mm 12v CPU fan that keeps it even cooler (by like 15c)

Summary: THis card is awesome!!! My computer is now able to play games on a much higher graphic resolution. I was playing WOW on the lowest setting to keep the frame rate up for MOP, but now I can set it at highest graphic level and still get a decent FPS. Easy to install, a great price.
Summary: I tried to get my AM3470 Acer to work with this card. The machine would not find it. The tech folks at Nivida will tell you that this card requires 300 watts, but the PNY website claims that it requires 350 watts. Once I encountered problems, I started reading and found that I was not alone.
Summary: I purchased this video card to work with video games that place a heavy load on the graphics card. It was easy to install, set up, and use. It has worked without a problem after many hours of video play. Great product!
Summary: i have this card connected to a panasonic 3d tv via HDMI. running windows7 64 bit, i was able to watch 3D movies with POWER DVD 7. save yourself some money. dont buy the latest Power DVD version. grab an older version on ebay for cheap.
