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...
Summary: I got this to play Crusader Kings II when I discovered my 4 yr old desktop has a PCIe x16 slot available. I was somewhat skeptical that the old machine would accept it, but I snapped it in, turned on the computer and it downloaded all the drivers automatically.
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 bought this card from Tiger Direct. I have an HP Pavillion desktop with a Violet 6, 95 watt motherboard. I have 10 GB of RAM, and recently upgraded to a 650 watt power supply. I mainly use the computer for the Microsoft Flight Simulator and IL-Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover flight simulator.
Summary: I thought the 4GB of memory would give me a performance boost. I was wrong. In fact, this card performed worse than the gt440 I was trying to replace on both the FurMark and 3DMark06 tests and while playing 2nd Life. Very disappointed.
