Summary: I purchased this card because it was good value for money and used the Nvidia reference design layout which allowed me to easily replace the fan with a water cooling block. This modification was straight forward and went without a hitch. The good: Performs reasonable well for games for the price.
Excerpt: I bough this card for gaming build, it was not the cheapest option but I am glad I got this over a HD 5770. The card itself is pretty powerful and has a lot of potential when overclocked and/or run in an sli setup although I only use a single card.
Summary: This was not the best choice I could have made--I didn't do enough homework. The issue is not with MSI, but NVIDIA chipsets. If you Google GTX460 and freeze, you will see there are issues across all brands with this series (and other NVIDIA 400-500 series).
