MSI Z87-G45 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Pro Gaming with Killer Networking & Sound Blaster Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good feature set. Decent OC ability. Intel HD control

Cons: No Radeon Video cards seem to work under windows 7

Other Thoughts: I have been running back and forth with MSI on this for two months. I waited a few months to add a video card. At first I thought it was the VC that caused the screen to go blank after logging in to windows. But I found another machine to test it on and it worked there. Then I found other cards di not work. They suggested I turn off UEFI but there is no option to do that.

Then they 'forgot' that while I started the support request talking about the card, I had told them that the motherboard was this one( I mentioned it explicitly in the previous reply) and was to blame. They just told me to get in touch with the MB manufacturer. Well, I will not TOUCH an other MSI product again. QC is never perfect but this support is useless.

MSI R7850-2GD5/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good speed. Great price

Cons: Nothing yet.

Other Thoughts: Wanted to update(wish you could edit previous reviews). Turned out that the card seems fine but the MSI MB I was using it in is the issue. Working on resolving it but put this card in another machine for now to test it out. For a moderately priced card, It runs nicely. Wanted it mostly to experiment with DirectCompute for Financial models not games. Would probably rate it a 4 but felt I should up it to make up for the 1 I gave it when I was blaming it for not working in my newer system. I would certainly consider it again if I need another card.

MSI R7850-2GD5/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great price, Should have good performance

Cons: Doesn't work

Other Thoughts: Not the best first impression. Card is a hair to big to fit in line witth HDD. Bigger problem is that while it works to get you to the win7 login screen, that is the last visible item I can see. When I logon, the screen goes black shortly and never returns. Removing the card fixes this but it is still unusable.

Sent mail to support. Hopefully, it is something minor I am missing.
