TDRs all the time, Many many people experience this.

Pros: Compared to previous cards I've had, no pros except that it's SLI capable.
Cons: Timeout detection and recovery (TDR) errors are absolutely rampant with this card. Not just with gamers, but also simply from browsing the internet. Don't waste your money, statistics show that you're likely to get the error as well. And it's not just MSI. It's EVERY brand of this junky GPU.
Summary: Not impressed at all by the customer service.
Pros: Well.. The first card worked for a week or 2..
Cons: Wow where to start.. I have now got a RMA returned card. The returned card has an OBVIOUS physical defect, warped PCB, and a test shows no thermal bonding with the heat sink and heat spreaders. As soon as a 3D test is run, driver crashes after 2 seconds and the GPU temp hits 70C! Even better is M...
Cons: It has crashed since probably day 5. Runs HOT. Artifacts with driver crashing and sometimes recovering, and other times comp resets itself. If I get another card it wont be to SLI this one, will have to get 2 more different cards.
Summary: I have been a long time user of MSI main boards and video cards but this is starting to make me think I should try another brand. This is an update to my 3 egg rating from 8/1/2012.
Pros: performance in games
Cons: Is Running EXTREMELY HOT!!! hitting 87+C at full load. Ambient Air temperature of 70F. As stated previously I have FIVE 120mm or larger fans moving air through this case. My CPU (quad 955) is running at 56-7C never have seen it go above that even with the extra heat being generated by the video c...
Summary: I understand that components can be faulty from time to time. However, to be without the card for over a month when I only bought it 3 months ago is not acceptable. If a company can't provide better service than this then they won't be getting any repeat business from me.
Pros: Card worked well while working.
Cons: Card started to display artifacts after 2 months of service. RMA'ed the card. Process took 2 weeks before I received a replacement. The replacement would spike to 98 degrees with any load put on it. Even dramatically UNDERclocked it would still reach 98 degrees. MSI agreed to RMA this card as wel...
Summary: OOOOO since i couldnt get the msi card to work i m using a SAPPHIRE 100328L Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card and it is work really good and the card only cost $100.00
Pros: none that i can think of
Cons: #1 card worked for 2 days then went out called msi and i was told i needed a bigger Power Supply so i got one still card didnt work so i did a rma on it and put in card #2 got 4 days out of it called msi was told it was my motherboard so i put the card in my wifes computer same thing called them ...
Summary: The above is flagrantly false. Invoice date is on the paperwork. Kicker is now they have all my other documentation, including the box UPC, and I will never be able to do anything with this card if anything goes wrong.
Pros: None. MSI did not sell the product at the advertised price. Declined rebate when I jumped through all hoops correctly. No rebate = they just dinged me for $20. Plain and simple.
Cons: Here's their claim: Your Rebate was not approved for the following reason(s) - Copy of Invoice is missing - No proof of purchase date in documentation Our decision to not approve your rebate claim was based upon examination of the documents that we received from you. Note that they give no way to...
Cons: Card died after 31 days. MSI took over 2.5 weeks to send an RMA and then it was a card that was scratched and had chips/dents... They also didn't send any off the power connections or cd's back with it. They stated they will not send new cards out. They will always be replacements.
Summary: I really want this card. I read all the reviews on it and though I'm an ASUS loyalist, I went with this MSI card this time. I think it's a hardware defect, but it's not convenient to replace without some assistance from MSI here.
Pros: - Runs beautifully...when it runs
Cons: - Random Black Screens during gameplay. The game keeps running, but the video cuts out (not disconnects from monitor...no display image lost message or anything. No power save...monitor stays on). Just flat black screen. Can range from 3 seconds to 10 seconds. Once it starts happening, and I shut...
Cons: Is artifacting like CRAZY in games and it makes no sense because its not getting too hot or anything. It is doing it with default out of the box settings. it does this is every new game so far. crysis 2. and today bf3. this is extremely depressing.
