Pros:

Really good graphics when it works

Cons:

I was excited when I got this card, and for a few seconds I was amazed at the graphics. Then the driver crashed. I couldn't make it play for more than a few seconds without a crash. After searching online I found that others were having the same problem, but that it got better after uninstalling MSI's afterburner software. That helped a little, and by that I mean that it would sometimes go as long as 1 minute before crashing again. Downloading current drivers directly from Nvidia helped, but the crashes are still frequent. I can sometimes play games for 20 minutes before the driver crashes, but sometimes it crashes just loading the game. I read another review that warned against using this card with MSI motherboards and wish I'd believe that reviewer. Like him, I couldn't imagine that an MSI card would crash constantly with an MSI motherboard. Unfortunately I don't currently have a different brand motherboard to test it in, but the behavior I see mirror what other people are saying. Great card, just don't combine it with MSI motherboards.

Very frustrating that it didn't work at all installed per directions. Even more frustrating that it continues to crash, though less often, even after using default Nvdia drivers.

My System:
Motherboard: MSI Z87-G45
Windows 7 64-bit
16 GB DDR 3 SDRAM 1600
120GB Kingston SSD
530W power supply
