Happy Buy 12/07/2013
Well built. I like the results with BF4 and SH5. With a stock configuration the card is undetectable at idle. Fast delivery and low price. The software (MSI Afterburner) is actually really nice, it gives me info like GPU temp and fan speed in the tray as well as on screen. Upgrade from a broken 4890 and what a difference. It is very powerful. Installed easily of course. It felt solid when I picked it up. Low price. I am really happy.
I've never had the ability to see my temps and fan speed so now I am paranoid about the card being to hot, it is currently at 38 degrees idle after some BF4. When I first installed it I was running at 35 degrees, but with almost three years on the warranty I'm not concerned with anything and I'm not an overclocker so I expect it will last.
My system specs are approximate.
