Pros:

Incredibly good thermal performance, as predicted by reviews on bit-tech.net. At maximum performance settings I see absolute temperature below 43 C in all cases.

Very good crisp images. High performance (16,400 FPS test from glxgears) but see Cons issues below.

Smooth flowing image with flight simulator from flightgear.org even when max image quality is selected on the driver and the application.

Cons:

I saw a lot of video artifacts and tearing with this card. A lot of help from google got to the root of this: adobe flash player. I disabled hw acceleration for flash, upgraded to flash player 11.1.102.55 and enabled sync to VBLANK on the driver. That kept the card at 60 FPS since my LCD refreshes at 60Hz.

All the video problems went away and now the card performs beautifully. Still, nvidia driver should have made these choices the default, given so many reported problems with flash hardware acceleration and just given an option for the expert to override.

Other Thoughts:

Took a long learning curve to get this card working properly, mostly for problems unrelated to MSI. Having figured it out, I would buy this card from MSI again, no contest.
