Pros: Works and its cheap
Cons: Its freakin LOUD. First time I heard it I actually looked outside to see if an airplane was coming. Good thing I dont use it often.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Comes with a "MSI gaming app" that allows you to overclock with a push of a button.
Great cooling fans
Cons: Somewhat big, make sure it's going to fit in your case.
The first couple of days I had it I constantly had glitches when loading images or playing games. I completely uninstalled the drivers and re-installed them and luckily that fixed the problem, so still 5 eggs.
Other Thoughts: Make sure if you get this you utilize the "MSI Gaming App" and Nvidia Geforce Experience. The gaming app will allow you to switch between 3 modes-OC Mode, Gaming Mode and Silent Mode...choose OC mode for best performance. OC mode raised my FurMark 15 minute burn-in score from 3528 to 3755 (using intel 3570k at 3.8 GHz).
Nvidia Geforce experience is handy because it allows you to optimize popular game titles for maximum performance. This saved me a lot of time.
I recommend getting a 120Hz or 144Hz monitor to get its full potential. There are plenty of games that run over 60 fps(At times, I reached 110 fps on planetside 2). I've had to turn on Vsync for almost every game due to screen tearing...and if you don't know, Vsync increases input lag, so its not ideal for multiplayer. I just ordered the VG248QE monitor and apparently it's ideal for gaming, especially with the lightboost hack.
On a side note, I swear this card was made for Battlefield 4...it runs so smoothly on it.
