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.

3 out of 5 eggsHDMI Port Dead After 15 Months

Pros: It's been a good card for Photoshop running two monitors.It renders most of the filters fast enough.

Cons: HDMI port stopped working after 15 monthes. I haven't tried to send it back. Because of the low cost of a new card I'll probably won't bother. I would have given a higher rating if it would have lasted longer.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

3 out of 5 eggsehhh

Pros: small and quiet, rebate made it cheap- got rebate in 5 weeks

Cons: Doesn't play well with all boards. Had in ASRock 980DE3/U3S3 and had to reboot every time for aero to work.. tried EVERYTHING but on cold boot aero was off, reboot and its OK. Even using afterburner on start up and Nvidia cleaner tool b4 driver installs still had issues. Put old card (GT630) back in and no problems. I then put this card in another computer with a 770extreme MB and no problems with it. Scores a 7.2 WEI without tweaking.

Other Thoughts: with the rebate it can't be beat. working fine in other PC and VERY Quiet. Haven't tried gaming but great for HTPC. Have to send in UPC from box for rebate- which means it can't be returned................LOL, like how that works for them

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice!

Pros: This card installs and loads with windows 7 like a breeze. It is church quite. I can't hear it at all.
I have ran: FarCry3,Batman,COD4,Crysis,Serious Sam 2 HD, and more and have had absolutely no hangs or errors. Its small would work in any case.
I am running a AMD Phonom ll x4 965 with 8 gigs ram on a WD raptor hard drive.

Cons: None that I can Think of.

Other Thoughts: 1. I cleaned my machine inside and out plus all the junk off the hard drive from the internet surfing.
2. Ran a good defrag on the hard drive.
3. Uninstalled all my last graphics card and drivers.

Final thought is to thank MSI for making something that installs and runs without a problem.

Now if it has longevity then it is a awesome purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsMy First MSI Pretty Good Product

Pros: My son plays some light games:Team Fortress 2, Mine Craft. It runs quiet.
Plug and play: Nvidia Driver Updated, did not required to install the enclosed software CD but I did it anyway. Price was fare, Came with bracket.
*10 Stars for New Egg fast delivery. Arrived in 2 days. One day for a 130 bls. Portable A/C. I purchased most of my products through NewEgg.

Cons: No Cons because when i compare this video card to similar one, like apple to apple, it is one of the best. It would be a con if say I use a Honda civic trying to pull an RV camper and it burns out my engine.

Other Thoughts: It took me 7 minutes to uninstall old one and install this one. Turned on PC, Nvidia installed up to date driver. My PC is Dell Studio 540. I uninstalled Geforce GT 220. It still works after 5 years but I updated this one for a DDR5 and of course a newer version. Card is much quieter than the Geforce GT 220. It is thicker than GT 220 so I loose an unused space beneath the card.

4 out of 5 eggsNice video card

Pros: Good price/performance ratio. Very small size. Easy set up

Cons: A little noisy

Other Thoughts: It's a good card. Runs most games I've tried so far. It's amazingly small. The fan makes slightly more noise than I'm used to...not bad really. Just a little louder than my old card. Probably because the fan is so small, and it must spin pretty fast.

5 out of 5 eggsFar and beyond

Pros: This card is a serious improvement to the ATI X1600 I replaced with it. I know it's a serious technology year difference! I did also get it during a rebate period. I'm streaming HD videos flawlessly now.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Old motherboard NVidia chipset only allows compatibility in 32-bit windows, which I guess is ok because windows dropped 64-bit support for my processor with the Windows 8.1 update. Double whammy of stinkers. I hear a lot of people have issues with newer NVidia graphics cards paired with nForce 1/2 chipsets, so if you're in this boat think hard about this purchase. I had no problem in 64-bit mode with my ATI, but it was also aged. I did put it in a newer computer to test it with 64-bit requiring newer titles and it ran "PvZ Garden Warfare" just fine.

Other Thoughts: I really love this card it's bargin I was nVidia fan switch to ATI than switch back to nVidia

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.
