  • Summary: I'll have to replace this soon, but I'm going to try to wait another year. It's either a sad state of PC gaming when you don't have to replace a card in 4 years, or this card has been a legend. I'll definitely go with a newer Frozr in the future.
  • Pros: I've had this card since September 2011, and I can still play new games at high settings.
  • Cons: None

Excellent Card

Camden J., Newegg
19 August 2014
  • Summary: I am finally looking to upgrade, just because this card is quite out of date now. But even to this day, if it was still available I would buy another one and run them both in my backup machine.
  • Pros: This thing absolutely will not stop. I've been running it as hard as I since 2011 when I bought it. Not once has it hiccuped since then. I've been using it for gaming in a windows environment, mining in 2011 when it was still cost effective for me to do so, and for hashing pass keys in a kinux en...
  • Cons: I OC'd it and it started to burn up my surrounding hardware due to my lack of cooling in my case, but the card stayed cool! Even when I was being ignorant and mistreated it, the card still persevered.

It finally died...

Dimitry S., Newegg
26 February 2014
  • Summary: It finally died, yesterday. Thing worked like a race horse but finally kicked the bucket. First the fans went, then the computer kept shutting down, added a GPU temp widget, found the fans were dead. The GPU overheated enough it died. If this was 2011, I'd buy it all over again.
  • Pros: for when I bought it - fast, easy to install
  • Cons: BF4 and like games are unplayable

Really good GFX card!

Anonymous, Newegg
7 April 2013
  • Summary: Impressed by MSI this time around.
  • Pros: Never had any issues with the card over the last year and I've put it through hell. I play demanding games, mine, fold... etc. I am really impressed by the build quality of the card and love the metal cooler cover. The plastic covers on most cars just look cheesy IMO.
  • Cons: None that I can think of. It's kinda heavy and sags if you don't tighten the screws while at the same time holding it level... but that's not really an issue.

Never going with MSI again.

Kyle H., Newegg
9 December 2012
  • Summary: Well since it's discontinued it doesn't really matter anymore. This is the last night I go with MSI.
  • Pros: The card is quiet when idling and looks good. It stays at a decent temp most of the time.
  • Cons: I am going to dive right into this. I purchased this to give it a test run for a bit so then I could crossfire them, I enjoyed the card so I when to purchase another one and guess what, discontinued. This makes me beyond mad because I can't get this card anywhere else and now I have to spend 300 ...

Was good now not so much

Garrett G., Newegg
22 August 2012
  • Summary: Should check all ports in all possible configurations when I first get video cards from now on. Never had a video card fail me before.
  • Pros: Worked great in Eyefinity configuration for many months.
  • Cons: Hooked up a monitor that requires DUAL DVI and I can't boot to Windows. I have to boot with a 1080p monitor to get to windows then I can hook up my 2560x1440 IPS monitor after wards. Tried my new monitor on an old Powercolor 4870 and it works perfectly...shame on you MSI...I am opening a ticket.

Sweet

Jordan M., Newegg

  • Summary: Other than it dying, and the one they sent me as an rma having a bent backplate. Its a fantastic card, I had to use a ziptie to secure it to the case lol.
  • Pros: Runs good and cool. Runs Counter Strike: Source on 2560x1600 for me at 550-950fps depending on map and players in the server. All my games are on 2560x1600 and I keep my settings rather high on all of them. No problem running bf3 at all.
  • Cons: After a few months of having the card it died and I had to rma it.

Update

tyler b., Newegg
12 June 2012
  • Summary: When I got the card at first my bottom monitor input didn't work so I had to switch to the top. I tried to figure out the problem but I couldn't. I asked some people and they didn't know either. If anyone else knows feel free to advise! (:
  • Pros: I bought this card as a birthday present back in January. This card will play anything I throw at it on all high settings on a 23in monitor! Love this card and would definitely recommended!
  • Cons: The only con I am having is I can't seem to raise the voltage in the msi afterburner. I have it unlocked but can't move the needle, not a big issue.
