Pros:

I've had this card for a while now, it's still very quiet under load, the fan hits 3600 RPM (100%) and it still doesn't make a whole lot of noise. It's retired for sure, but even with 1GB DDR5 @ 800Mhz, 128-bit; it handles Skyrim very well (without ENB or SweetFX) and with advanced configs it even manages to play Cry3 at around 25-30fps, which isn't bad. All in all, it's a very sturdy mid-range card.

Cons:

Bit of a dust magnet, at the time I bought this card (11/29/2013) it was 141.99, which for 128-bit, seemed a little discouraging, but I eat my words there, this card should have been 256-bit for that price, like I said, but it still pumps good frames for where it is at.

Other Thoughts:

There have been some RMA's/DOA's listed here in the reviews, but what most people have to realize is that QA is a delicate process, the card might look fine off the production floor, and it might operate under stress tests (which MSI does undergo) but when packaged, shipped and then handled by Newegg or other companies, ESD can STILL happen, and is quite possibly the leading PCB killer to this day. Most, if not all cards that arrive DOA have had some form of issue off the floor that just wasn't caught; or exposure to ESD.
