It's been a while since I bought this but still working great.

Summary: Although I've built an upgraded system since I bought this, I still use the system that this card is installed in and it's continues to perform to my expectations. I haven't had any issues from this great performing and amazing graphics card.
Summary: I HAVE to write a review about this. I have an MSI 460GTX I bought 3 years ago and it was great, and still runs great (specs are outdated though-won't play many modern games on high settings) I just noticed this card is $300+. This is absurd. I paid $200 for mine 3 years ago when it was the hot ticket. Currently on Amazon you can get a 670GTX for $380, which is MUCH better than this dinosaur.
Summary: This card performs as well if not better than cards that cost 20-40% more. Have never been a big fan of MSI but they definitely hit it out of the park on this one. My only complaint is noise. It doesn't really bother me, but when you really work the card it sounds like a plane is taking off in my living room.
If you like quiet and effective cards, get this one.

Summary: I've only had the card for about four weeks, but it seemed like a good fit for my computer. I have a Dimension E520, and the backplate being dual-slot didn't fit into my computer (BTX design). Lucky for me there was only a few screws holding the backplate in place, easy enough to remove, though the heatsink only barely fit in in front of the CPU heatsink.
Summary: I own an R6970 Lightning, and 2 of these in SLI. These, in SLI, benchmarked noticeably higher than the single 6970 and run much cooler. Using a CX600 power supply with an 1100T, 2 SSD, HDD, and BR burner on this SLI setup with no issues. Note that 460s are not 3way/4way SLI compatible. These are quite quiet unless the fans are at 100%. Much shorter than the 6970.
Quiet Cool, never heats up like other cards, great overclocking

Summary: Best thing about this card is that its not loud like other ones. Its powerful and no hassle with drivers like ATI. before this i had 3 ati cards which all had problems with drivers. This was 0 problem. Graphics are high and runs smoothly. I love this card. Might not be completely enough for BF2 though but it greatly improves ur graphic from whatever you have now.
Summary: runs really cool. can easily overclock and surpass the hawk talon attack. though you have to be careful because this card does not come with a vrm heatsink so dont go overboard with it or it will pop.
