2 out of 5 eggsNot Impressed

Pros: Solid built card, easy to install, and quiet.

Cons: Died after 9 months of moderate use. Some middle level gaming and basic internet use. The graphics quality was pretty basic even on middle settings on games like WoW. I purchased this card on a budget but I wish I had waited for a better card. Now I get to spend money on the RMA process that I could have spent on getting a better quality card. Factor in this expense down the road before buying.

Other Thoughts: This is my first and most likely my last MSI video card, I only purchased this one because I thought getting the MB and Video from the same company would be nice for a change, lol. I love their motherboards, but if this is how they make their video cards, it is better to stay away from them.

Another negative point is their tech support, I understand all companies outsource their support to 3rd world countries but it took me 3 calls before I found someone who understood me when I told them my video card was showing massive artifacts at start up. This should be easy for anyone working tech support to understand but the first 2 MSI reps were lost and just kept telling me to go to their website for information.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fairly low price, good results, and nVidia's Linux drivers work right.

Cons: Only one DVI connector.

Other Thoughts: I had planned to move a card from a machine getting a GTX570, but that old card started being troublesome so I bought this as well. The 550ti does such a good job that while it's no 570, for my purposes it made me wonder if I'd overspent to get the 570. The only issue is, had I used this for my primary machine is that dual monitors wouldn't have been as trivial to set up as I had a spare DVI cable handy.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Works well. It looks awesome, even the packaging was really nice. It has not exploded, and I don't expect it to.

Cons: No complimentary stickers. I was really disappointed that I spent so much money on this elegant masterpiece, and yet I obtained no free stickers. MSI please, start giving away stickers.

Other Thoughts: It's blue.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Budget Card

Pros: Example: Running Arkham City on very high although disabled the directx 11 its giving issues but I think it's the game; Anyways, It's at a constant 60fps. My cc is at 950mhz it saved me about 20$ on the red oc'ed edition.

Skyrim at ultra, trine 2 very high (just saying, it's an awesome game)

Cons: It gets a little hot but I just push up the fan. Nothing else really.

Other Thoughts: It's a really nice card for the price. I bought it when it had free shipping so that made it even more awesome.
Also it fits perfect in my small case.

This was a little build I did for my gf who wanted a small "cute" pc. Yea, it may look cute but it sure is beefed up inside especially with this card.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card for a budget build

Pros: After careful inspection and lots of testing its limits this card is in the classification "you get what you pay for". After running Skyrim with nearly everything maxed out graphically, this card is a work horse. I performed well under load and never got above 50 degress in my HAF 932 case.
Its come equipped with 1 full sized HDMI port (something you don't see much in the industry), which means NO adapters needed! I run my computer straight to my 42" Philips Flatscreen TV and have zero compatibility issues.

It also has a large fan that runs quiet and is a small card by comparison to my old GTX 275 twin Frozr card. The PCIE 2.0 keeps this card in the forefront of todays tech.
It is Backwards compatible for PCIE 1.0 slots making this thing a gold mine for those not wishing to do a full mobo upgrade just yet. A good card for a budget build!

Cons: A few things to note. The card shoud is made of a cheap plastic and if you look carefully its not even aligned with the card sqarely.
Aesthetics aside, this card only has 1 SLI connector on the card and didn't even come with an SLI bridge.

Last thing to note... WHO uses VGA connectors any more??
Seems like an aweful waste of space that could have been replaces by a second DVI or even HDMI port.

Other Thoughts: All around its a good card and I really can't fault it for working as hard as it does in my current system. I'm still using 4Gb DDR2 ram and a mobo with a PCIE x8 slot. I think my system is the reason its being held back.

Oh and shipping... Newegg... you rock! 5 days (with a weekend) from pressing the confirm button on my order till i got a knock at my door. EXCELLENT SERVICE on standard shipping!!

5 out of 5 eggsi like it!

Pros: comes with nice overclocking software, even though im yet to find a need for it! this thing is running wow on ultra at some points ive seen 200 fps too bad my screen only does 60 lol

Cons: it runs a little warm.. BUT from what ive read these things are good up to 90 celsius. and once you run msi afterburner and remap the fan speeds it runs cool and quiet.

Other Thoughts: overall im happy with the card in general and if i need to upgrade i will just get one more and run them in sli
