MSI GeForce GTX 780 DirectX 11.1 N780 TF 6GD5/OC 6GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1. Fast
This thing is fast, really! Was using R9 280X, however, disappointed for both cores, operating temperature, power consumption, noise, plus VRAM.

If you're using 4K monitors like ASUS PB287Q, a single card with over 4gig VRAM is essential.

2.OC performance

Able to get +200MHz without any issue. And the temperature is acceptable.
Note: 7 120mm fans in my case.

3. Utility App
Really usable, and recommended by TweakTown.

4. Cooling system
Dual fan with semi-open design is good. (Like Asus's non-reference card) EVGA ATX Cooler is just a ....(*Cough)

Cons: 1. UEFI Support
Can someone tell me why?!
Troubleshooted on the forums by tons of owners, However, no feedback from MSI.

2. Drivers support
LTS is missing. All softwares and drivers remain out-of-date.
If you wanna check out 4K@60K, no beta drivers, and you've to get the latest one directly from NVidia.

I'm concerning if I'm the only one or not.

While the card is running even under the default profile, sometimes the card will start to bump out 'buzz' sound. Which is not acceptable.

I can hear an electric, would say - buzzing sound from the card in load. Is that ok? It is not loud, can barely hear it unless it's totally quiet. I could also hear some coil whine, but only on very high FPS or in game menus (with V-sync OFF).

Concerning about the possibility to do RMA

Other Thoughts: 1. Will add to my watch list
MSI is really trying hard to push out some awesome cards for players. But price and roll out date should be earlier and cheaper.
(*Cough* EVGA) Don't let someone get your market.

2. Utilities/software and LTS
That's essential. We don't expect too much, but.... UEFI and latest support... C'mon, MSI, let's do this.
Even my MSI dragon edition 2 utilities are out of date...

3. Design and materials
Please, solid design but the materials feel cheap...
Can't tell the exact feeling....
