Summary: This has turned out to be a really great value card!! The computer shop here was wanting 2 & 1/2 times more than what I paid for this one for a card with only 1gb of memory. This card has put in a sparkle in my graphics and eliminated a few other issues that I would have never had associated with...
I was one of the unlucky ones to hit a strong incompatibility issue

Summary: I very rarely write a negative review for any product, even after reading the many positive many reviews on this products. I purchased a brand new Lenovo desktop computer, (8gb Ram, onboard Intel graphics, Windows 8.1) and this MSI NVIDIA to add DVI.
Summary: The fan on my old faithful GeForce GT 240 has been making a grinding noise periodically now for... years. I'm not one to break something that isn't fixed, so I've been ignoring it. That is, until my DVI port failed and my monitor went black.

Summary: "display driver failed and has successfully recovered" error. Happens nonstop, if you search online, you will find out that it is a hugeeeee problem with NVIDIA video cards. Regret the purchase a lot, now I have to purchase a new card. Should have done my research before buying.
Summary: Works great for a cheaper video card. I'm a gamer, and I keep my settings to a minimum, and it functions very well. If I wanted a high performance video card, I would have spent about 10 times the price. However, it works great for what I needed. Easy to install as well.
Summary: This is a great product for anyone running games. I don't do the arcade-type games much but have wonderful definition for Hidden Object games, for instance. Perhaps someone else can advise about the fast paced action games but I cannot.action
Summary: Removed from box and got running in my Inspiron 570 in about 10 minutes. I then fired up my favorite game and noticed a HUGE difference in performance. This was a super easy and inexpensive upgrade to my system that will allow me to run my games without having to buy a new computer.
