2 out of 5 eggsNot a terrible Card

Pros: Slim Design, Fanless, Runs cool, 1gb memory, no problems so far. Cheap

Cons: Not a huge improvement over my Geforce 6800 I upgraded from. Cant play high resolutions.

Other Thoughts: Not as noticeable a upgrade over my old Dinosaur Geforce 6800 Card. Thought it would be a more pronounced difference. Only see a big increase in FPS in games that use more memory like GTA4 and Star Wars - The old Republic.

Have been able to overclock it to

Core: 675 Shader: 1655 Memory: 572

with no problems so far and temps really low at 45c Idle and like 52c Load. Was higher up at around 65c-72c but installed a case fan on side to vent and a fan blowing air over the heatsink and it shot those temps down real nice. Wish I knew what the volts were as MSI says it is higher for better overclocking. Will have to research.

1 out of 5 eggsNeeds PSU 350w or greater...

Pros: Shipped on time. Easy change over on the low profile bracket.

Cons: Would've been nice if newegg or MSI websites had the required PSU specs on the page before I wasted my time buying a 300w PSU. Never again am I wasting my money here.

2 out of 5 eggsBSOD in Win 7

Pros: Price is great. No fan is noce, if it still stays cool (yet to be seen)

Cons: Blue Screen of Death in Windows 7

Other Thoughts: Out of the box this card crashes Win 7 64 bit with a Blue Screen of Death within 10 minutes. After updating drivers vai Device Manager it takes a good 30 minutes. After going directly to the NVIDIA site, running their automated driver discovery and update tool to get the absolute latest driver - it takes all of 2 minutes to crash and burn.

From what I have learned so far, this card is not Win 7 compliant. Will be returning ASAP.

5 out of 5 eggsDrivers

Pros: To all those who are having trouble with the drivers with this product. Stop being fools. Go to the nvidia site and download drivers directly from there.
Graphics cards have a direct link to the gpu chip. The nvidia drivers will work with the same gpu chip even if its "made" by different manufacturers. Its still an Nvidia

Cons: Tired of so many people not knowing what they are doing and instead they run here to post a negative review.

1 out of 5 eggsDELETED EMAILS

Pros: NONE at this point - after almost 3 months I thought MSI would have current drivers that would work on their support website but they have made no effort to update this card.

Cons: MSI drivers will NOT load even from the website. Windows 7 64bit update does see the card but downloads "standard" VGA drivers which don't see my 22" widescreen LCD and gives me only the "standard" video configurations of 800x600, 1024x768, and 1280x1024 which makes the screen too large for comfort.

Other Thoughts: I sent an email to MSI as they requested in their June comments to my posting. I sent it with receipt and read returns and it is a good thing I did - I got an IMMEDIATE "reply" - They DELETED IT! Didn't even read the email - just deleted it! GREAT TECH SUPPORT MSI! ! ! I am so glad that my order of yesterday did NOT include an MSI video card! I really appreciate the "help"!

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Product!

Pros: Price, speed, and options

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I installed this card in my brand new build and works great. I stalled Windows 7 and the first driver it tried using was a standard VGA which is normal for Windows. I installed the drivers and now it runs at full speed. This is a 64 bit video card so make sure that the system your running it on is 64 bit so that you won't have any problems or hiccups. One thing I enjoy about this card is that it has v3 different options for monitors. A VGA out a HDMI out and a DVI out, this is great because I use the VGA when I am using it at my desk and I can use the HDMI or DVI out to connect to my 42 inch tv and play games. This is a great card and MSI is a great company. I have never had problems with MSI cards. Definitely worth buying.

1 out of 5 eggsHeadache after Headache

Pros: NONE - it doesn't work!

Cons: 1st the CD that came with the Video Adapter could not be read in ANY of my systems! 2nd I went to the web site noted on the CD label and downloaded the "current" drivers there and they would not work. 3rd Windows 7 listed it as a Standard VGA Adapter and none of the downloaded inf files were accepted by Windows 7.

Other Thoughts: I ended up using an OLDER MSI 256mb video adapter that Microsoft saw CORRECTLY and loaded the right drivers so I could get better video. I had to get the system up and running to replace a system that died several weeks earlier. I had to run Windows 7's rating system to get my AERO to work. I would RMA the adapter except I want to get it to work and have not had the time to go through MSI tech support. The previous review was not posted when I got this card or I would have gone a different route.
