Summary: Works great in my Gateway DX4870 so far with no issues. Runs nice and cool in my system. Driver installation and update was very easy. The only complaint that I actually have about the card is how loud the fans are for all that MSI says about the quietness of the fans. My old 1GB Radeon was quieter than this card but its worth it. Games are looking much better and running smoother than ever before with graphics set on high or better.
Summary: Upgrade from a GTX 260 to this GTX 660 was a great improve. Native support for DX11, more number of shaders and memory bandwith. The 600 series architecture is much more efficient, uses less power (watts) and runs cooler while delivering better graphics performance. I am really happy with this purchase, even it was a refurbished, reboxed, it was in mint state.
Summary: Upgraded from my 550Ti. Huge improvement! Silent. But also big. I would have purchased it again if I had to do it all over. Also came with assassins creed 4 and some other game for only 189!! Only gets 4 stars bc I can't run everything on full extreme max settings (that's what the 770's are for I guess lol). But I get high/very high/ultra on a lot of games. Gotta find the sweet spot for all the games.
Summary: The card works great, runs cool as advertised. Since it covers two slots on motherboard you'll lose a PCI slot. But its worth it to get the extra oomph for graphics performance. Getting the $10 rebate is another matter though. .MSI denied my rebate request because I sent them an AMAZON invoice I copied from my account page. But for $10 it wasn't worth the hassle to complain.
Summary: I bought this card because it was the best I could find on the "shorts" range of cards. I was planning on getting a 770 but it just wouldn't fit in my old cabinet and wasn't ready to change the whole rig. Card performs very well, always cold even at the highest GPU stress. FSX which is very heavy on the hardware improved 100 % over my old GTX 460 card. Its a very good buy for the price.
Summary: I know, I know ..you're thinking why the hell I would need a VGA port nowadays. I'm sorry, but I don't want to throw out my old monitors in the trash. I like to use them as my secondary monitors and they are very useful to someone advanced. So I'm unsatisfied with this. The conversion adapters NEVER work ...for any type of conversion, it doesn't what kind ..whether it be DVI to HDMI to DVI to VGA or any vice versa etc..It always fails me. Ugh.
Summary: this graphics card can run most new games at high or even ultra. but I would recommend going to [...] because they do a better (same price) GPU called the XFX HD 7870 as you pay same price as this but is better it gives you about +10 FPS so great but look into the XFX HD 7870
