Summary: The actual video card is great, but the fans started making LOTS of grinding noise within a year of ownership. Forced to buy a $50 cooler elsewhere to enjoy my computer in a tranquil environment or if I want to sell the card and not have it returned for being "broken".
Summary: This is my second Graphics card and my first one is HD 6950 2gb twin forzr III I have them now on crossfirex I am very happy with FPS and the quality is very high I recommend this card. It's fantastic
Summary: I bought one of these video cards from Fry's. Because of certain circumstances the rebate was sent before the video card was tested. Of course, it didn't work. So then it costed me over $30 to ship it back to MSI. Then i finally got the replacement video card! I put it in and it was also D.O.A.
Summary: The card is fantastic. Its an MSI card just download the MSI afterburner and tweak(custom , speed, fan , voltage) how you like it. I managed to run every demanding game like battlefield 3 ,Skryim, Crysis 2 and Mafia 2 without a problem or noise on Full HD.
Summary: This is a great mid-high-end card for the money. The heat pipe configuration lets it run cool and it's capable of receiving the firmware to unlock the shaders. Be careful, though, as it does not have a secondary BIOS in the event the firmware does not work.
