NEVER BUY MSI!

Karl M., Newegg
25 February 2013
  • Summary: At this point, any reasonable company would have just sent me a new card and have been done with it, but MSI would rather have angry customers who don't have fully functional products.
  • Pros: I bought two of these cards, at least only one of them failed...
  • Cons: MSI has the absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced. One of my cards failed, and so far I have sent it in four times. They just can not seem to send me a working product. Now I am fighting with them trying to get them to allow another RMA because my current card does not read the ...

Slowly Dying card

Shawn B., Newegg
19 November 2012
  • Summary: I think it's still under warranty but i'm not sure if it's worth going through all of that. I don't want to and than have it break again. Does the warranty end once you use it?
  • Pros: Great card, awesome graphics, low noise, no issues with any of the hdmi ports
  • Cons: The card is now starting to give me issues with games. I will "freeze" for 10 seconds or so and then the game will catch up and be fine for a minute up to an hour and do the same thing again. Also lags just before it does it.. Happens in Diablo 3 very often. This card should be able to handle any...

Dead in less than a year.

Matthew R., Newegg
9 April 2012
  • Pros: Good performance and software extras to see card performance and tweak settings.
  • Cons: The card died after less than one year of ordinary use (no overclocking). This was too expensive an item for such low reliability - be careful of this manufacturer.

Worked great while it lasted

Jeremy S., Newegg
8 February 2012
  • Summary: Looks like this model was discontinued
  • Pros: Worked fine for 7 months, just expected a heck of a lot more life out of it.
  • Cons: I have two in crossfire and I keep getting a random black screen and the occasional system powerdown. I've updated drivers and rebuilt my system to be sure... :(

how long is the warranty on these?

Jeremy S., Newegg
7 February 2012
  • Pros: Have 2 of these in crossfire mode....Worked flawlessly for 7 months
  • Cons: I often leave my pc on to come back to no picture and my monitor flashing between analog/digital indicating no video signal. Most games crash when the action gets intense with memory addresses failed to accept texture loads. I've already replaced my MB so I know it's the primary card.... :(

So many issues

Roel P., Newegg
12 January 2012
  • Summary: Overall this has been my worst experience ever with a Video Card and a company that makes them. I will never again buy an MSI card or anything from this company. The customer server has not answered a single call from me out of about 10-15 calls and not returned any of the messages that I have left...
  • Pros: When I initially received the Video Card it was running fine and handling all games that I play very well.
  • Cons: I noticed that every so few minutes in random areas of the screen that noise (looks like static) was appearing and staying for longer periods of time. I contacted MSI for an RMA thinking there was something wrong with my card, I recieved my next card after waiting 3 weeks and this card was not di...

Great deal.

ricardo j., Newegg
21 September 2011
  • Summary: I'm ready for Battlefront 3 ;)
  • Pros: I got this and also an xfx to crossfire. Msi's card caem with 3dx11 advanced, a few adapters a crossfire bridge and a rebate. Runs cool, fan can be a little loud at load and card can run hot. Playing with afterburner fan controls made the cards run very decent in terms of noise and temps.
  • Cons: Rebate was an American Express card, Xfx gave me a check. Guess which one is easier to use.
