Still a great buy

Summary: Good news about the cons is that MSI's warranty process is pretty painless and has a quick turnaround.
Pros: Plays most games, even Battlefield Hardline, at great solid frame rates at 1080p. Overclocks like mad and crossfire scaling (gaming permitted) is very good. This card is really quiet unless you push the fans past 60% Only requires one 6-pin
Cons: ...well it makes the 270x irrelevant, lol. Fans tend to be a gamble on these cards. My friends was fine, but mine leaked oil and one of the fans stopped working all together
Certainly isn't comparable to something like a 290 or a 900 series Nvidia card

Summary: Coolers work well, the card itself is rather powerful and can handle most of what you throw at it. Certainly isn't comparable to something like a 290 or a 900 series Nvidia card, but it's definitely an excellent mid/high-tier card.
Summary: I paired this with an FX-6300 and 8gb of 1866 it runs DayZ flawless. I up graded from and badly outdated gt800 and amd 600e with 8gb of 1333. I plan on adding a second stick of 8gb 1866 and go to liquid cooling for over clocking in about 2 months.
Pros: Fast high quality construction.
Cons: A little on the large side its box is bigger than a motherboard box.
Pros: Runs all new fps games and Company of Heroes like a champ.
Cons: It's kind of crazy how many amps are needed to run this card. The user should calculate tje amps needed from thier current PSU before purchasing. I had a 600w psu but minimum amps needed to run the card. my PC would not boot after an hour. It felt like my psu was on the verge of killing over. so ...
Summary: Got this for a pc build to run some games on Ultra as high as I could get the FPS to go. This GPU does it. I recommend getting two of them for crossfire play if you can. My one is good, but I am a performance junkie so I got another one and it is in the mail, even though i didn't need it.
Pros: Keeps cool under load well quiet fast fairly cheap IMO
Pros: I bought this card 1 year ago and It runned all games in Ultra easily. It was running cool and quiet. There is now some games that I can't run in ultra like Far Cry 4, but if I run it in Very High or High, I get about 58 fps, and it's still better than the nextgen consoles.
Cons: 2 weeks ago, one fan stopped spinning so I sent it to MSI's RMA. Today, I received an email that my card has been processed and that my card is on the way back home. I know some people are upset at MSI's RMA, but I had no problem at all with it other than I did have wait 3 weeks. **3 weeks during...
Pros: One of the best cards you can get for the price.. outperforms the gtx 750 ti which is slightly more expensive, i was actually looking at purchasing that and watched a benchmark video on it and this was on the list always 20-30 frames ahead of the 750.. its a great card.. i recommend it.
Cons: On my 2nd one.. seems like some of these are duds.. also battlefield 3 is no longer on the list for the free games... kinda bummed.
Summary: I did not know this was going to be 1/2 inch taller than my last card, an old MSI 7780 HD. Which forced me to place the card almost on top of power supply. I suppose not really a con for me , but if yo are using a pre built liq u don't cool r like myself , you will have clearing issues with a mid...
Pros: -small size - quite and coolong, 41° c @idle -posted and loaded drivers with no issues -software functions well, very simple and straightforward -came with power adapter -solid build - scored a 7.9 on WEI(if anyone wanted to know) -looks really nice with my other red ram and case fan - price, was...
Cons: -was not able place in first PCIE slot( mostly because I have a H-60 liquid cooler, that sits right over the card when I try and place the side cover back on) -strance clicking noise from the fan , but went away after 10 minutes.
