Pros: A solid card apparently, if it worked.... Either time
Cons: Didn't work. RMA'd it. New one didn't work.
Other Thoughts: I'm not going to go too far into this, but the first of these cards that I bought did not work. It took me a very long time to figure out which component wasn't working (the nature of a new build), but after a few weeks of debugging I got lucky. I tried to RMA it to newegg but I removed the UPC label to get a rebate, which I didn't get to send off. Newegg rejected my RMA since the UPC label was not in it's original location (I did include it in the RMA when i sent it off). Newegg has been great in the past though, so I can let that slide.
But at this point, -$10 for shipping and I lost the $35 rebate. -$45 already.
So I get it back and factory warranty it (another -$10). MSI eventually gets me a new card - I put it in...and voilà! Hard self shut down as soon as I put a game in. I tried to live with it, but I'm done with that.
So here I am, no graphics card, essentially $55 down the drain (not including the price of the card of course) and slightly miffed to say the least. I bought this card because it supposedly is a reliable and solid card, but after the experience I've had with MSI, I will not be buying anything from them again. You don't replace a broken card with another broken card.
