Summary: This plugged in without any difficulties. The display is clear, crisp and fast, although gaming video demands have not been tested. A minor inconvenience was obtaining additional voltage for the on-board connection. All the necessary cables was supplied but trying to route power cable so not to disturb airflow, fans and heat sinks required some cable ties.
Summary: very nice card card for mid range gaming. if your looking for max gaming open your wallet and look at something like a 780. no sli support either so this card is for single card users only.playing diablo3,neverwinter,and fallout NV running med settings on a 23 inch monitor med -high res with no problems. for price and solid performance in the mid level range a very nice choice.
Summary: Bought this one a whim looking to upgrade from a GT440 that was, in itself, purchased on a whim (hey, it was on sale at Tiger Direct for $35 in store). Picked this one up here for about $75 after a rebate and haven't had one complaint yet. Runs everything I play nearly maxed out (games from the last 2-3 years). Only wish I read into the outputs a bit more before I committed. Currently own both a DVI monitor and a VGA monitor (20" and 19", respectively).
Summary: Received the card as expected and installed. Installation was very smooth and had no issues. Additional MSI Updater software received updates the video card and also check system for needed updates. Be sure and verify the file selection to ensure it does not install unwanted software (i.e. Norton) in my case. Otherwise, the card is great and video and game play is excellent for me.
Summary: There is no hdmi-->DVI adapter included..? I swapped out my old video card, which had two DVI ports, with this card and I have no hdmi to dvi adapter and so I only have one monitor plugged in. Two monitors is pretty standard these days. I woudl have give 5 stars if they included the adapter. So my old card would not allow me to play Neverwinter, now it's smooth as glass. I'm happy with performance!
Great card in general, not so much for World of Tanks in particular...

Summary: Enthusiast of World of Tanks BEWARE! I am not the only one out there to report serious problem with the game vs. this card (and more nVidia cards in general). I have had World of Tanks crashes on EVGA GeForce 9800 GT and they, unfortunately, continue to happen on this very card - my newest MSI N650Ti-1GD5/OC GeForce 650Ti.
Summary: My last video card fried and I needed a replacement. After some research, it happened that this particular card (along with a few others) fell right into the sweet spot of price and performance. Translation: it can handle most games with ease, yet it only cost me about $130. In terms of 'power per dollar,' this is about as good as it gets right now.
Summary: My full video review on Youtube: [...] I could not put it on amazon cause the file was to big. My Written Review Starts here: This graphics card is amazing i love it and i receive little to no lag while recording on not recording it is meant for a budget pc and it does the job. With this card you will be able run almost any game on very high setting and a game like arma 3 on Medium.
