5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget upgrade

Pros: Great boost over integrated video or an older card.
Very low power requirements mean you can likely keep your current power supply.
All three outputs -- VGA, HDMI, DVI
Cheap. I caught with a MIR for a Jackson.

Cons: It is a bit loud.

Other Thoughts: It's hard to imagine not snagging this at the price. GTA IV, LA Noire, WoW all run wonderfully. Hope it comes back in stock for those stuck with integrated video.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card for a great price

Pros: -Low price
-DX11
-Made my computer faster
-Great for people who dont play a lot of games but want to play modern games

Cons: Fan is loud

Other Thoughts: I would like to mention that just because I bought this card doesn't mean that I can play every game. I still need to upgrade my cpu and ram so I cant really tell you if this thing can run games like crysis or bf3.

4 out of 5 eggsNot too bad for $30

Pros: Hdmi output
Didn't have to change my psu.

Cons: 64 bit and the fan is loud.

Other Thoughts: Fan is louder than everything in my case combined and runs at one constant speed. I also wound up with a broken fan blade after installing and using for around 5 hours. I'm sure this was probably my fault as I have never had problems with MSI's products before.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: Very good bang 4 buck for $20(after rebate). What more can you say.

- HDMI output with audio

- Low power consumption

- Decently fast for $20. It is stock overclocked. I would say the speed is probably a bit slower than a GT 430 but I am sure a bit faster than lets say a GT 520.

Cons: - Fan is fairly loud. <sad face> :( I had to take 2 eggs away for this issue since I could not bear to keep it in my system its so loud.

- 64-bit, not 128-bit like most GT 430's. However, cant complain when it was $20AR. Its still faster than lets say a 5450 or GT 520.

The fan is only 2-wire I think and operates at a very high speed 24/7. I am not sure why MSI couldn't add a $.50 cent part to make the fan not operate at high speed 24/7.

I guess I realized how quiet my computer was before adding this video card. It sounds like a jet engine. In my room there is no way id be able to enjoy a movie with this video card running. For this reason I decided to sell it.

5 out of 5 eggsA nice basic graphics card

Pros: I put this in a Biostar N68S AM2+/AM3 motherboard for a friends PC and it works great. I installed the drivers from the disk and installed MSI afterburner and away he went. Thanks.

Cons: None at this time.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: Updating my Doc R review: stable now with supplied driver from the included CD-ROM. But, had to reinstall Windows 7 from scratch to get it to work. Wierd.

Make sure to install all motherboard drivers PRIOR to installling the card. Also had to ensure that the PCIe graphics card was selected in the mobo prior to booting with the new card.

Cons: Had to reinstall Windows 7 to get it to work and run stable without throwing kernel errors.

2 out of 5 eggsBarely working...

Pros: No external power required. HDMI, DVI and VGA. Short card.
CD had utilities for temp, overclocking, etc...(no fan control possible, even with the MSI utility).

Cons: Fan at high speed all the time... negates the quiet power supply fan and quiet CPU cooler fan.
Once the NVIDIA driver(s) are installed... it constantly hangs to a black screen, and recovers after the freeze with a "Display driver NVIDIA windows kernel mode driver version xxx.xx stopped responding and has successfully recovered" (xxx.xx is the MULTIPLE Nvidia drivers, most recent, older and betas that were tried to no avail to cure the freezing).

Other Thoughts: Might need to RMA this ASAP. Am trying to reload a different Windows OS, and have tried a half-dozen "fixes" mentioned in the NVIDIA forums for this somewhat common problem.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued MSI Customer,
“Please contact MSI customer service representative Jane at janegao@msi.com, or call Jane at 626-913-0828 ext 221 with your case details. Thank you.”
Best Regards,
