Pros: This is an excellent graphics card! At least... parts of it are. And those parts are fantastic. So far I've been able to play every game I can throw at it on Ultra settings, including Star Citizen (Hangar Module), Batman: Arkham Origins, and Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag. The automatic overclocking feature is nice, and the ability to overclock it further using MSI Afterburner is great too, should you wish to do so.
Cons: The cons that I've found are huge: a seemingly lack of good driver support. When I first got the GPU, I connected everything and downloaded the drivers. However, since then nothing I do can get my PC to detect any onboard PhysX or CUDA support. It detects the CUDA cores, but cannot make use of them properly. BOINC won't even sense the card, and PhysX support in games are limited to the CPU. I have contacted MSI for support but so far all they have been able to do is tell me to download older drivers. I have done so, but still no joy. If this problem gets resolved in a satisfactory way I will definitely change my assessment of this card.
Other Thoughts: If PhysX and CUDA were working for me I'd give it 5 eggs. As it is, games run great, but not being able to use the card for other things really annoys me.READ FULL REVIEW
