Pros: This isn't a large card,so it fits in a smaller case well.
GpuZ reports Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) at 33.5 GB/sec.
It performs very well.
Cons: My only complaint is the fan noise.
GPuZ reports the fan running at 30%,but yet it sounds like a blow dryer even at idle.
MSI or someone needs to develop some software to slow this thing down when it's just idling.
You can find these cards cheap on auction sites and they are more than worth the $20-$30 you would pay.
Other Thoughts: It runs cool and does everything I bought it for with power to spare,I just wish I could slow the fan down.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works fantastic in a 5 year old Gateway desktop.
I'm a "retired" gamer,but even going on graphic intensive websites were taxing my ATI FirePro 3750 video card.
All my Blu Ray and embedded website videos play much smoother with this card.
Cons: It's big and long,so take notice of any south bridge heatsinks near the rear of the PCIe slot(s).
Also,the fan isn't loud when idle,but it is audible under load.
Other Thoughts: I installed this video card into an older Gateway GT5644E desktop tower.
