1 out of 5 eggsNEVER BUY MSI!

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 temperature properly.

Other Thoughts: 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.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Please provide your previous RMA#s to usreview@msi.com and we will see what we can do for you, thank you.

3 out of 5 eggsSlowly Dying card

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 anything I throw at it but it's turning out to be a disapointing birthday gift from my wife.

Other Thoughts: 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?

1 out of 5 eggsDead in less than a year.

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.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great while it lasted

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... :(

Other Thoughts: Looks like this model was discontinued

1 out of 5 eggshow long is the warranty on these?

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.... :(

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued MSI Customer,

We would like to apologize for the issue you have experienced with this particular VGA. Please email me directly via USUserSupport@msi.com your VGA's serial number and your complete contact information, subject heading "EAHR6970". I would like to help you get this resolved.

1 out of 5 eggsSo many issues

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 displaying any image at all. I again contacted MSI for another RMA and sent it back, I recieved my third card 2 weeks later and this card has a lot more noise and discoloration and the screen goes black randomly. Ive tried numerous times to call their customer service and never got to speak a live person, left messages and none of them ever returned. Ive tried all three cards in two systems at home and both have had the same issues with all three. The issues occur when running the card at 2560 x 1600 resolution on a 30" Samsung SyncMaster 305T, I have a Nvidia GeForce 260GTX and a Radeon 6950 that both work absolutely fine on both systems at this Resolution. The card was meant to replace the 260.

Other Thoughts: 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 for them to please respond. The RMAs are non descriptive, they just say "Swapped" in the description and no update on what the issues they see with the cards are. Sorry if I'm ranting but this has been a very frustrating experience.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal.

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.

Other Thoughts: I'm ready for Battlefront 3 ;)

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is beast

Pros: Plenty of I/O for what I need

Big

Clocked pretty high all around

Best fan I have ever had on a card

Not a bad deal

Cons: Can think of anything.

Other Thoughts: You gota be pretty dumb NOT to think of this but make sure it fits in your case. If your using as "CM Storm Scout" your gonna have to make some mods to the case unless you PCI-e is like the first slot on your MOBO.
