2 out of 5 eggsLockups, Screen junk, Crashes...

Pros: It's a great card when it works. Most new games will work on default graphics settings.

Cons: 50% of the time, the computer will not wake form standby. Uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. I've updated every time there is a new update. Sometimes while scrolling in a browser, the screen displays junk. Many flash videos crash the computer.

5 out of 5 eggsGood cheap replacment

Pros: Cheap and Effective

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this a replacement for my years old Geforce card that died of heat death. At 1/3rd of the price of my old card this one is more than capable of everything that I need. Plays most of my games in High mode, I don't really need Ultra settings as I'd rather have the framerate.

3 out of 5 eggsFan went bad and it started overheating

Pros: Works extremely well for the size. Was able to run the latest Borderlands games on just under maximum settings,
Decent budget card.

Cons: After about a year of use the fan bearings began to go and now the fan does not turn as fast. This has also resulted in the card overheating and shutting down at random. RMA'ed it.

Other Thoughts: This is the first time I have ever had an MSI product that worked poorly. Won't buy again

4 out of 5 eggsGreat performance with occastional crashes

Pros: Decent graphics, decent price, easy to install.

Cons: Occasionally kills my computer. After sitting idle for a while or while playing games or watching videos for a few hours it will without warning go black. Sometimes the sound still plays, but all other peripherals die. requires reboot every time. Took awhile to track it down but it appears to be faulty drivers. I see here in another review that the drivers are still Beta. Why the heck would MSI release this with Beta drivers?

Other Thoughts: dont use if you have a lot of active projects that could be ruined. But if you have the patience its a great card to have.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card For a Great Price

4 out of 5 eggsSolid card, especially for price

Pros: -quiet
-cool
-affordable
-reasonable performance
-bundled games
-overlocks well

Cons: technology is somewhat obsolete in light of more recent AMD offerings - the R7 265 offers a better price/performance ratio, IMO, for this class of card (despite being more expensive than the 260x).

Other Thoughts: I managed to overclock my core to 1230 without touching the voltage. The card is surprisingly capable for what it is - Witcher 2 in 1080p runs quite well on Medium, and passably (30-45fps) on High with AA turned off! Games like Skyrim and Dishonored run fantastic on Ultra settings.

Works well enough with Linux, although I had an issue the other day where, having previously run the official AMD Catalyst drivers for this card, upon running some Ubuntu updates my desktop stopped displaying. Little annoyances, but this is probably more of a Linux issue than anything.

Afterburner is great for OC. I used it with Unigine Heaven to tweak the card. I didn't touch the voltages, just wanted to see what could be achieved "safely", and wound up with a really high stable clock rate. Very impressed on that front with this card.

But... as mentioned in my cons, with a 128-bit memory bus and other chipset limitations, you can't expect too much from this card. I suspect if you bought it now, you would definitely be interested in buying another card by the end of next year. I can't imagine things like Witcher 3 etc will be kind to this hardware.

Still, for sub 1OO prices that you can find this model at, it's hard to object at all - a great entry into a performance card for a budget build, and certainly all older games are fair game at 1080p if you are flexibly on your graphics settings.

2 out of 5 eggsToo unstable for me

Pros: Performs well under load without over heating and was a good value on paper

Cons: When this card is under load it was performing as expected in my Dell XPS9000 with Win 7 OS. However, I kept having random system freezes with the card under low load or idle. The screen would go blank and the keyboard unresponsive. A system hard restart was the only option to get up and running again. I went through several generations of drivers with complete uninstall between each installation with no change in system hang behavior. I contacted MSI and they said I could RMA the card, but if it tested out OK, they would be sending it back. Again the system crashes were quite random and spaced out and never when the card was being pushed. So there was a good chance that they would not find a problem in their limited time testing or possibly the card would be OK in a Win 8 box with PCI 3 vs 2.1. Finally, with the last driver update from AMD, they list numerous unresolved problems including idle time crashes. I fear that I am going to screw up my hard drives, etc. with these repetitive hard restarts.

Other Thoughts: I replaced card with a flawless NVidia GTX 750Ti and wished I never had the flawed Radeon R7 260x. The 750Ti is about the same price and it performs better as well. We will see how well the RMA process will go after 3 months of ownership, unless someone wants this card used on the cheap.
