  • newegg MSI ALL Solid Capacitor MSI graphics card products use high quality solid capacitors, which provide an ultra-long lifespan of up to 10 years (under full load), lower temperature, higher efficiency, and extremely low ESR. For gamers and high-end users, this feature not only means that product has better quality components within, but also provides much stronger support when users want to engage in hard-core tuning.
  • newegg Afterburner Co-developed by MSI and Rivatuner, MSI releases the ultimate graphics card utility “Afterburner”. This utility enables all MSI graphics cards users to boost performance and to monitor all kinds of critical information in real-time. The latest version also supports in-game video recording for easy sharing and wireless control by Android/iOS handheld devices.
  • 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.

3 out of 5 eggsgood card, poor rebate

Pros: card worked fine out of the box. don't expect a miracle from a Budget card. runs ark on low/med settings with my a8 processor with minimal hiccups.

Cons: rebate is a sham. after receiving said card it was 6 days after the purchase date. after i installed and fully tested the card out i was at day 21 after purchase date so i felt comfortable sending in the rebate. i looked at the procedure and the rebate was limited to 15 days after date of purchase. there was no way i could prove out the card and send in the rebate when it took a week just to get the card. therefore no rebate.

Other Thoughts: i am on the fence as to whether or not i will buy msi again for any reason.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear James,
We apologize for the issues that you are having with the rebate process.
You must follow instructions word by word by providing a valid invoice printed off Newegg's website (not the packing slip that was provided in the package), the UPC code cut from the product's box, the rebate document, and send out the mail promptly before deadline.
If you were denied, the rebate center would generally allow you to resubmit missing documents again, except if you had missed the deadline.

However, if you still have any issues with your rebate claim, then please contact us directly at and we will see what we can do for you.

Thank you for choosing MSI

Best Regards,
MSI Review Team |
