Based on the fast and power-efficient NVIDIA Kepler architecture, the MSI N640-4GD3 delivers game-changing performance for strikingly beautiful graphics and realistic environmental interaction. And with an assortment of NVIDIA display technology such as NVIDIA Surround, 3D Vision, it gives you more than one way to elevate your experience.

  • newegg Afterburner With Afterburner overclocking utility, the MSI N640-4GD3 enables you to boost performance and to monitor all kinds of critical information in real-time. Afterburner is a completely free utility which is compatible with almost all MSI graphics cards.
  • newegg All Solid Capacitors MSI Solid Capacitor Graphic Card uses high quality solid capacitor for lower temperature, higher efficiency and up to 10 years lifetime. The aluminum core eliminates the possibility of explosion. For the gamers and high-end users, this feature not only means that product has better quality components within, but also provide much stronger support while users want to engage in hard-core tuning.
  • newegg Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
  • newegg NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
  • newegg NVIDIA Surround with Up To Four Monitors Nothing is as breathtaking as playing your favorite games across three monitors. At 5760 x 1080, the expanded field of view fully engages human peripheral vision and provides for the most immersive experience in racing and flight simulators. Add in a fourth display to keep tabs on chat, email or web while you are gaming.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good card

Pros: Runs games like wow, smite, runescape, minecraft, elder scrolls mmo, skyrim maxxed settings any where from 25-200 fps on whatever game.

Very quiet/low power usage compared to my old gpu which was louder than thunder when the fan kicked on.

looks amazing on my 28" led tv with hdmi.

Also cheap

Cons: Not as good as i was expecting from this big if an upgrade my old geforce 9800 gtx+ with 512mb GDDR5 memory ran games almost as good as this 4GB DDR3 card. i was expecting a lot more out if it but honestly the 4GBs and the almost nonexistant power usage are the only things going for this card, very low clock speed with ddr3 makes it not worth it. I'm planning on returning for much better 2gb gddr5 card.
Its a nice card though don't get me wrong. I just need better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal for the money

Pros: I decided to try this GPU about a year ago, and I must say, it's a great deal for the money. While it probably won't max out something like Call of Duty Ghost, it most defiantly will give you plenty og graphics power, combined with enough ram and a decent processor. If your looking for a cheep card for a casual and or simulation set-up, this will do just fine. It's easy to install, and is capable of fitting in most cases, regardless of size.

Cons: Don't expect this card to do the impossible for a > $110 GPU. It's noty designed to be used to outmatch the PS4 or the Xbox 1 in and of it's self. If your looking to do that, then you might want to buy something stronger.

Other Thoughts: This has lasted me through two computers. When my older gaming rig broke on me, I used
Ubuntu temporarily and this graphics card worked ok with it.. If your planing to run with an Ubuntu machine, this should get you by, however, I'd strongly recommend getting a graphics card designed to work directly with Ubuntu.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet, uses little power

Cons: Not good for gaming

Other Thoughts: Can't run GTA 4 at maximum settings. I was using an old 8800 GTS 320 mb card and this is only a small increment better. I regret not getting a GTX 650 for like $30 more. If you need a card that can run off of the PCI power alone it is not bad. Though I would recommend getting the 2GB version, which is a little cheaper, since the GPU is not good enough to need the extra memory.

5 out of 5 eggsA++++++

Pros: I decided to get this card as a temp. adjustment to my gaming rig while I saved up for the devil 4 gig ddr5 card but I can say I am shocked at the performance this card gives. I am a hardcore gamer and this handles planetside 2 on ultra with no lag at between 50 and 60 fps, bf3 60 fps constant also on ultra. I love the software that is offered with this card and NVIDIA. I don't use any of the over locking software with it either as there is no need. I am now for sure a fan of msi and NVIDIA.

Cons: Nothing, 4 gigs ddr3 memory for 100 bucks, also all the articles flaming this card for low benchmark results obviously had something else going on to cause this. This card is amazing.....

Other Thoughts: My rig is an msi gaming Mb (forgot exact model and don't want to open my case right now) amd black phenom x6, 16 gigs ddr3 ripjaw ram, 2 tb had, windows 7 ultimate 64 bit 550 watt pwr supply.

1 out of 5 eggsCan't get it to work!

Pros: None.

Cons: Gave only 256 colors. Would not load drivers on disk, or update downloads. Says no compatible hardware found. By Bluetooth device would not run while this card was installed. Windows 7 - 64 bit screen saver said to purchase a newer video card. Had to disable my RAID-Card just to get it to boot up and give a screen with 256 colors. I have a AMD X6 processor, Asus Motherboard, 8 gigs of memory, and a 750 gig boot drive. All less than 2 years old. Should have worked. Yes, my MB Bios us updated.

Other Thoughts: Put my old video card with 1 gig of memory back in, reloaded the drivers and it works. Everything else worked with old card. Put this card in again, computer would not boot. Put the old card in and all works fine. I have built over a dozen computers and never seen anything like this.
