Summary: I havn't installed any graphics intensive games yet, but I have seen them on my friends MSI (same model) and they look great. I seem to have some trouble with typing on the keyboard as it frequently erases everything I have typed or skips to random web pages randomly. I believe this has something to do with the touch pad. I hardly ever use touch pads, so hopefully disabling it will remedy this problem. The computer is very fast, as far as I can tell (not tech savy).
Summary: GPU when idle is at about 60C, underload the temperature soars up to 90+C, which is disturbingly hot. Serious longivity concerns about this laptop. But other than that, it runs 3d intensive applications such as Bad Company 2 flawlessly.
