4 out of 5 eggsSlow Fan

Pros: At stock OC the card runs the only 2 games I play MW1 & W@W on very high settings, but not quite maxed. If I manually turn fan to 100% I can OC it to higher settings & run the games maxed. Installed easily. Quiet.

Cons: If I OC the card at all, I have to manually increase the fan speed or it will hangup and shut down. Sure, I can increase fan every time i game, but the "auto" fan should increase based on the temp. Running Furmark with it on auto the fan does fine, but it waits till temp gets fairly high, before really kickin in to cool things. Apparently in game, that doesnt work so well.

Other Thoughts: Does anyone know how to get the "auto" fan to react quicker or how to tie the fan to temperature? I'd like it to kick in to 100% at about 50 degrees instead of like 70.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: -Great Performance, there isn't a game I've thrown at it that i couldn't max the settings on. Great replacement for my 8800 GTS 512.

-Runs very quiet.

-Factory overclock is always nice.

-Doesn't go beyond 65 degrees under full GPU usage.

-The non-stock cooler is very attractive, to me at least.

-Suppots audio through an HDMI adapter that is included with the product for 1 cable auido/video. Great if you use a TV as a monitor.

Cons: -The Card bends under its own weight. This is because the cooler does not have a large plate over the PCB like the stock cooler does which allows it to bend under its own weight. This has yet to cause any issues, but it remains to be seen if this will cause problems over the coming years. The bending is further caused by the weight and pressure from the 2 6-Pin power leads that are plugged into the very end of the card.

-The PCB is red. Would really have preferred black but thats just a matter of taste.

-The cooler has some very nice looking heat pipes, but they face the motherboard when installed, would really have liked them to have been located on the other side making the visible when installed.

Other Thoughts: Just a couple points about the card in general.

-This is a 10.5" card so make sure you have room in your case for it.

-It is fairly power hungry, it requires at least a 500 Watt PSU with 40 amps on the +12 volt rails, though it ran fine on my old PSU that only supplied 32, just keep that in mind.

-This card is a great middle ground between the GTX 260 and 285, using the GPU of the 285 and the memory of the 260.

-I would really like to see NVIDIA start designing their cards with the power connections located where the sli headers are atm, this would allow the pressure of the power leads to be right where the card is physically attached into the case and not all the way at the end of the board.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good

Pros: Works pretty good, overall it is what it says it is. Sounds like a leaf blower on start up, then idles down. Nothing to worry about works like a charm.

Cons: You need two 6 pins to run this card. They dont come with but, your PS might not have them. I had to buy adapted to my 4 pins. huge ordeal. I thought it was kinda big. i was lucky for it to fit into my comp. Runs like a champ tho

Other Thoughts: I have a weak power supply so it crashes at moments of huge explosions in games or even when its mad at me.

5 out of 5 eggsHighflight 1985

Pros: Hey Highflight1985 the card isnt whats slowing your system down its your 2 year old cpu, that CPU is garbage and can barely power that video card, a 9800gt would work alot better with that cpu.

Cons: People who dont know how to review properly

Other Thoughts: this is the fastest single chip solution from Nvidia it beats a gtx 285 in almost all tests with a slight overclock and its the same GPU just limted on the memory bandwith.,

4 out of 5 eggsGood! But Can I Have Two?

Pros: Haven't owned this card for very long, but my first impressions are good. I was shocked at the weight difference compared to my 8600GTS it replaced.

The pros? Only one: It definitely gives better graphics than my old card, but...

Cons: ...not as good as I was hoping for the $300 I paid for it.

FurMark and other benchmarkers are showing decent scores, and World of Warcraft and other games are playing at higher settings than before, but still not maxed.

Other Thoughts: Was able to overclock it even further than the factory OC. After about an hour of tweaking by 5Mhz, my final numbers were 750MHz Core Clock (Shader clock linked to it using the supplied Afterburner software; 1662MHz shader), and 1200MHz Memory clock. Fan speed left on auto, and Core Voltage couldn't be modified (not that I would have anyway). The difference? Better scores in benchmarks, but not anything noticable in frame rates compared to stock.

It runs extremely hot in my case (almost 90C), but that I think is just becaues of my case. I ended up having to take the side of the case off and turn a household fan on it. It then likes to run about 77C under load. It's always cool when idle (50C).

Me thinks I need two of these bad boys to really see a difference. My wallet says, "Not yet."

5 out of 5 eggsStill a great card

Pros: Okay, so I have had this for about 4 months now and it runs all games great including crysis. A good upgrade coming from a geforce 8800gt, I really saw improvement. If you have up to date processor and memory the card can max out most games. The heatsink/fan is a really nice touch, the card temperatures stay low around 30-40 degrees Celsius on idle and don't usually go above 60 degrees while gaming with the fan only at 40% fan speed. This card was meant for high resolutions but my review is based on 1440x900 which is standard for most 19inch widescreen monitors.

Cons: Well this may be a con for you, but it was not the case for me...I bought this card for around 199 with a 15 dollar rebate back in July. I don't understand why the price of the card has increased especially since this is around the holiday time, but as you can see that is a huge price difference.

Other Thoughts: Although my system has a somewhat old processor (E7200 Duo Core 2 overclocked to 3.2ghz) and DDR2-800 RAM the card doesn't seem slowed done at all. Overall this card is excellent for the price I bought it for, I'm not sure if I would buy it for the price it is at now (considering I am cheap) but watch for this card and if you see a price drop you should really buy it.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Card

Pros: This card is absolutely amazing. FPS in Aion went way up to 110 FPS. No hiccups at all with this card either. No freezing, stuttering or anything. The card comes with a great accessory package and afterburner is a great utility for fan/gpu temp monitoring as well as clocking. Card runs all games smooth and allows for great FPS.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: make sure to grab the latest Drivers at MSI's site.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, performs like extremely well. Great on Crysis. All settings on high, with 2xAA, running at 1080x1920, I have no problems, no chop, just smooth picture all the time. Runs every other game I have on high settings as well.

Cons: Seems like it is getting more and more expensive. I got mine on the 4th of July sale for 250 with a 30 mail-in rebate. Fit well in my Thermaltake Spedo Advanced case with no problem, but I could see if you had a smaller, mid-tower case how the length might be a problem.

Other Thoughts: When I'm not gaming, I use the Nvidia Folding@Home GPU client with this card, and I am getting over 9000 points per day. Incredible. Newegg rocks!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This video card is okay. I use it with Flight Simulator X and the frame rates are great!! Easy to OC.

Cons: Now for the real issue. Buy this card but NEVER purchase a MSI product because of the rebate offer. Your time putting together the paperwork, buying a stamp and driving to the post office is a complete waste. I have mailed more than a few rebate requests to MSI and NEVER received a rebate! I do like their products however.

Other Thoughts: Happy Holidays!
