Based on the fast and power-efficient NVIDIA Kepler architecture, the MSI N640-1GD5/LP delivers game-changing performance for strikingly beautiful graphics and realistic environmental interaction. All-solid capacitors ensure an ultra-long 10-year lifetime, lower temperature, and higher efficiency. When used with MSI’s Afterburner overclocking software, the MSI N640-1GD5/LP supports GPU overvoltage function to fully unleash the overclocking potential. And with support for NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround and a maximum of three display outputs on a single card, users will be able to enjoy the ultimate in gaming and multi-tasking.

  • newegg MSI Afterburner Overclocking Utility Co-developed by MSI and Rivatuner, the MSI "Afterburner" graphics card utility allows you to adjust the fan, GPU, and memory clocking speeds in real time, and tune the voltage of the GPU to completely unleash its power. A real-time monitoring interface and burn-in stability test give gamers the power to control the card's overclocking status at any time. MSI Afterburner also supports wireless control by android/iOS handheld devices and built-in DX 11 effect test. In-game video recording is also supported. Afterburner is a completely free utility which is compatible with almost all MSI graphics cards.
  • newegg All Solid Capacitors The MSI Graphic Card uses high-quality solid capacitors with an extremely low ESR for lower temperature, higher efficiency, and a lifetime of up to 10 years. 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 it also provides much stronger support when users want to engage in hard-core tuning.
  • newegg HDMI 1.4a + DVI Output HDMI and DVI are the most comprehensively used interfaces for high-definition video display. MSI adopts two interfaces, providing a complete output solution for users to enjoy the latest digital HD video, such as Blu-ray movies. HDMI 1.4a supports 1080P HD movie playback and TrueHD or DTS-HD audio transmission. A D-Sub interface is also provided for compatibility with analog display/monitor.
  • 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 framerates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
  • newegg New Anti-Aliasing Mode: FXAA Anti-aliasing smoothes out jagged edges but can be demanding on framerates. FXAA is a new anti-aliasing technology that produces beautiful smooth lines with minimal performance impact. And with Kepler based GPUs, you'll be able to enable FXAA in hundreds of game titles through the NVIDIA Control Panel.
  • newegg NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround Support In addition to supporting DirectX 11 technology, the MSI N640-1GD5/LP can use 3D Vision Surround technology to set up a three-display 3D surround environment with just one graphics card. With high-quality 3D displays and 3D glasses, this allows gamers to enjoy the amazing visuals in 3D games and movies.

5 out of 5 eggsSCARY fast

Pros: I only buy NVIDIA for *BSD. Their native driver support is amazing. The speed of their chips is brilliant. I bought this during $79.99 minus a $30 rebate.... and, yes, I make sure I mail them. I cannot believe how fast this thing is compared to the 430. Quad pumped DDR5... I don't know what to do with this speed.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I, typically, don't buy MSI, I'll see how reliable this is and post only if it doesn't live up to it.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than I thought it'd be

Pros: I upgraded from a broken GeForce 9800 GT, and this graphics card can play most of my games at the highest settings. For the simple fact that this card was $40 (with a rebate), it was definitely worth the price. It's hooked up to my two monitors and TV and I haven't seen a problem with it since putting it in.

Cons: Just one personal con: Uses DVI-D instead of DVI-I (which is my fault for not catching that in the description)

Other Thoughts: Some other reviews here said that it was pretty noisy, but I can't hear anything from it.

I know I could've said more, but it's a simple card that worked for me at a very nice price - and it's just as simple as that.

3 out of 5 eggsGood but loud

Pros: Plays Civ 5, good video generally. Cheap

Cons: It's not super loud, but it is noticeable and annoying.

Other Thoughts: This was very cheap, and I'm very pleased with the performance. However, the card is the loudest thing in my machine (I think) and the noise is irritating. But it does play Civ 5 with aplomb, which is what I cared about, and it was still cheaper and gruntier than buying an APU.

5 out of 5 eggsIt is quiet.

Pros: Plug-and-play. Silent operation. I have three monitors, I use them for work, not games. There was virtually nothing to set up other than resolution on one of the monitors - I have two 21's and one 23.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wonder if GeForce took in to account the complaints others had about the fan, as this one is totally silent. No complaints, great deal.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card for the Price!

Pros: This is by no means a high-end gaming card but it will deliver an enjoyable gaming experience for a reasonable price. Understand that this card is made for PCI Express x16 2.0, which means this card doesn't have the power to use the faster PCI Express x16 3.0 standard. If you have a 3.0 mobo then get a 3.0 card. Had no problems installing the card or drivers (just download the latest from nvidia) and if you want MSI afterburner it comes on the utility CD. So far I was able to play Tomb Raider on medium to high graphics and keep about 30fps. Starcraft 2 plays at nearly 60fps on high settings. Also runs DeadSpace on highest settings no problem.

Cons: I cannot hear my wife talking to me from the living room anymore because this fan is so loud. I installed afterburner cause I thought it might let me turn the fan down but it only allows for an increase in the fan speed. If a quiet PC is necessary for you don't buy this card. Side note: the rebate process kind felt like MSI was giving me the run around... it took like 30 minutes to get through it and that was with considerable confusion. Why not make it simple if you really care about your customers?

4 out of 5 eggsThree outputs

Pros: Inexpensive
Low profile
HDMI, VGA and DVI can work simultaneously

Cons: Noisy fan

Other Thoughts: It is a great deal if you don't mind noise of the fan. My comp is sitting right in front of me, behind the monitors, in the quite room. The noise is very noticeable.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent card, very loud fan

Pros: * Inexpensive
* Easy install
* Low profile

Cons: * Fan is VERY loud

This is really not acceptable these days; especially for a low-profile card that might be trying to find its way into a HTPC

Other Thoughts: Really, the fan noise is inexcusable

5 out of 5 eggsCheap upgrade for many stock cards

Pros: Super easy install(nvidia drivers are darn near universal now). Very light on power consumption; doesn't even need it's own direction connection to the psu. Runs super cool( less than 35C) even under load. Will run WoW on ultra settings while maintaining 60fps

Cons: This isn't the card itself, but the drivers that ship with it are eons old. I'm not sure why they even bother; you should really just download the latest ones off the internet and forget the disc.

Other Thoughts: This is not a high end gaming card, but the price compared to the improvement you'll see from your average stock card/onboard video is high enough to make it worth the purchase if you're on a budget. I would also say if you have never put in a video card before and are hesitant it literally does not get any easier than this card; it is the definition of plug and play.
