Pros:

I'll revise my review from 01/30/2012: MSI still did a great engineering job with this card as far as cooling and packaging goes.

The solution of disabling flash hardware acceleration and synching to Vblank works... for a while. Then I had to shutdown (not reboot) and wait a few seconds before restarting.

Cons:

The key part of this card is the NVIDIA 500-series GPU and driver software, over which MSI has no control. I found that once the card was working properly for a week or so, the artifacts would reappear. The only solution that works is to shutdown, wait 10 seconds and then reboot. A plain reboot does nothing.

The problem with artifacts and corrupt video memory has been documented for NVIDIA 500 series cards from many vendors, as well as for Tesla and Quadro cards.

forums.nvidia.com has a thread "GPU in state where results are not reproducible" where people do simple GPU computing tasks, like manipulate a large array in video ram, and find there are bit errors.

This points to an NVIDIA problem, hopefully just a driver one that they can correct; the latest 290 series still doesn't fix it.

Other Thoughts:

This card has been out for a year, 500-series and other Fermi architecture cards for even longer, and still cards from every vendor, both gaming and workstation types, are seeing artifacts and memory corruption.

What a disgrace for NVIDIA! I'd get an RMA from MSI but not sure that would help at all. After many years of nothing but NVIDIA, I'm looking at ATI graphics cards.
