Check the size....

  • Pros: I'm assuming it's a decent card... can't get it to work yet
  • Cons: The strangely large plastic casing makes fitting this card into anything less than an expansively roomy case rather difficult. There is at least an inch, close to an inch and a half, of decorative plastic casing that extends well beyond the end of the card and does not appear to serve any purpose...

Failed before 90 days

Joseph D., Newegg
3 June 2013
  • Summary: I wish video card manufactures would put the components (including heatsink) on other side of board. When video cards are installed in a tower the fan and heatsink always face down. When it did work it did a very good job with sound and video running mythbuntu 12.04. and Mythtv ver.26
  • Pros: Has HDMI, DVI and SUB monitor outputs. Performed well with Mythbuntu and Mythtv / Comcast for HD and SD recording and playback. Sound thru HDMI worked great with linux.
  • Cons: Unfortunately the outputs died after warranty and before 90 days. Cooling was not an issue - fan was operable. However, No output from back ports. I have alot of respect for MSI and hope this was an isolated incident. Replaced with gigabyte card with same chipset. Cross my fingers :)

Rebate Process Rip off

Leo H., Newegg
7 May 2013
  • Summary: Just got rebate server to reply my application. Two days to late to post mark. Not funny! Rebates are so time consuming that the user earns $2.00 and hour office work paid by their own rebate.
  • Pros: Good start up card, but get a real video card.
  • Cons: No SLI plug on card

  • Summary: MSI customer support is pretty terrible. I broke a fan blade and called to try and get a replacement fan (for free or otherwise). Cost to replace fan is 55 dollars plus shipping because MSI needs to "replace the entire unit". Pretty ridiculous.
  • Pros: Good budget graphics card Can drive all 3 outputs simultaneously Includes VGA output
  • Cons: Unforgiving customer service

Good... until it's not

Michael B., Newegg

  • Summary: Installed this card about 2 months ago. Easy installation, drivers were self explanatory. Would have been completely satisfied had it not been for the constant BSOD I keep getting! My previous card, though it had issues, NEVER caused me to BSOD. Buyer beware, it could happen to you too.
  • Pros: Good value for the price
  • Cons: BSOD!

  • Summary: read a lot of posts on forums about not being able to install this product. tried installing an older version but still did not work. Could be just the card I got had problems, hey it happens. I'll probably try a different card however.
  • Pros: value, brand, quiet
  • Cons: software, installation

Wasnt compatable...

  • Summary: While it may be a decent video card for a budget it doesn't appear to be compatible with my Gateway 4380G. I uninstalled my drivers prior to install, the power was connected and my monitors would remain off with this card installed.

Not a big "Fan"

Jason R., Newegg
28 November 2012
  • Summary: Guy drops one piece of ham in the snow and he never hears the end of it!
  • Pros: Cost was where I wanted it to be.
  • Cons: The clip-on fan came with 3 broken blades . I didn't give it the once over like i normally do before installing any upgrade. Plugged it in it sounded really bad. took it out and looked at what was making the noise, 3 missing fan blades. I looked in the box and found the missing blades. I sold my ...
