Pros: Stays cool, performs, full HDMI slot (I don't like the mini HDMI on a lot of GPU's), runs very quiet.
Cons: Full plastic shroud, sticker decal, power connections facing the side panel.
Other Thoughts: When I first looked at the card, I didn't want to like it much. the front side looks plain, and a decal sticker on the shroud. This isn't the late 90's or early 2000's MSI. But none the less 300+ fps in a lot of low end games, and 70-80 in most high demand games. This cooler needs to be provided with fresh air, and needs you to not put your case against something. For me, I have it in a corsair air series 540 and it stays well under 70c. And as a hobby I work on indie games with crydev and udk. This card makes that and 3-d modeling pretty smooth without having to get a workstation GPU. All in all, this card is great for gamers, but if thats all you do and you only play at 1080 I recommend going with the 760. And this guy in a 4GB model for 2k resolution, 2 in SLI for multi-monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Good airflow, Roomy, Decent cable management behind to motherboard, tons of room for aftermarket CPU coolers, radiator support on a budget case!? Rosewill has some impressive features for any price range.
Cons: Faster and more powerful fans (above 1800rpm) can cause some acoustic vibrations, generally with 120mm fans. They can get quite noisy if attached to the side of the case. Use caution taking out the slot covers in the front as the clips on the side are brittle.
Other Thoughts: I would not recommend a mid tower for any kind of SLI setup as you may not be able to space the cards out far enough. Even still if your nuts and want to I think this case could hold it up without overclocking them and using the two available fan mounts on the side of this guy. Any way, this is a great looking case and I'm glad I picked it up.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very powerful card for its power draw and size, factory overclocks are convenient, small size improves cfm and air flow.
Cons: No sli but if your buying a card to minimize space you shouldn't be thinking about sli.READ FULL REVIEW
