Pros: Runs cool, so could be a good heatsink/fan
Cons: since I bought this the card will not hold a stable clock (factory clocks) using the MSI Afterburner tool to monitor temps/speeds, the core clock will go from 1050 MHz to 200 and keep jumping, resulting in unplayable games,freezes and display driver crashes. The temps never rise above 50*c so I think I got a bad card.
But since there was a rebate and I had to send in the serial/etc, it is not returnable, so I am stuck with a defective card.
I have tried every version of Catalyst drives including the latest beta trying to get this to work, and running the DDU utility to clean, but all with the same results.
Other Thoughts: I normally stick with Sapphire, but decided to try MSI on this, and am disappointed with this card.
My previous Sapphire 6770 outperforms this one. I just wish I held on to it.
This review is from: Antec GX500 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Case looks great, good cable routing, room for all my devices and long videocards. Is quiet
Cons: Metal is flimsy, screw holes are not tapped and end up bending it trying to screw in cards, doesn't hold cards to securely
Other Thoughts: If the rear panel was a bit better and helped the cards stay in place when the screws were tightened I could give it 5 eggs, but it is definitely not the antec quality I am used to.
This case is replacing a 10+ old Antec case. I'll keep this cause for the price it is a good case, but was torn on returning it and keeping my old one.
