Fast and affordable, the latest GeForce GTX 550Ti is great for enjoying DirectX 11 games at resolution up to 1680 x 1050. It’s also the quickest and most affordable way to upgrade your PC for Crysis 2.

The MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GD5/OC is based on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti GPU featuring 192 CUDA cores and 1GB, 192-bit graphics memory. MSI's exclusive "Propeller Blade" technology provides improved cooling performance with 20% more airflow compared to conventional fans. Matched with the new Cyclone heatsink, the result is an operating temperature 23? lower than the reference board under full load! The MSI Afterburner overclocking utility allows you to adjust the GPU voltage of the graphics card to fully unleash its potential. The MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GD5/OC graphics card also utilizes the latest Military Class components to extend service life and durability.

  • newegg Exclusive Propeller Blade Technology The MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GD5/OC graphics card is equipped with the new Cyclone II heatsink module featuring MSI's innovative Propeller Blade technology. Air channels on the edge of the fan blades expand airflow coverage and increased airflow by 20% compared to conventional fans! An oversized 9cm PWM fan, large nickel-plated copper heatsink base and high-density circular radiator fins all serve to dissipate heat rapidly away from the GPU, enabling the unit to run 23 degrees cooler than the reference board under full load!
  • newegg GPU Overvoltage Function with MSI Afterburner MSI Afterburner overclocking software allows you to adjust the fan speed, adjust GPU & memory clocking speeds in real time, and tune the voltage of the GPU to completely unleash its power. A real-time monitoring interface and burn-in stability test give gamers the power to control the card's overclocking status at any time. In addition, Afterburner can store up to five different fan profiles to match any situation.
  • newegg Military Class Concept Components The MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GD5/OC graphics card uses Solid State Choke (SSC) to prevent high-frequency "BUZZ" noise from overclocking or high loads. All Solid Cap long-life capacitors also provide over 10 years of service life. The use of these Military Class Concept components reduces the chance of system crashes or instability over time, delivering the most stable user experience.

3rd monitor??

Pros: 2 displays work good. Both on DVI

Cons: Why doesn't the 3rd monitor work when attached to the min-HDMI port? When I enable it from Nvidia control panel, it says "This GPU supports upto 2 displays". Specs of this card says it supports 3 monitors with 3D output. I'm only trying to get 2D output on all 3.

4/ 5

Pros: Cheap, easy to install and an overall decent value

Cons: Kinda large

Other Thoughts: Card may have gotten damaged through electrical issues despite the use of a UPS. Been a year and I get consistent blue screens related to the video card, but soon as I fix one I get a new one.
Card overall seem fine. It performed just fine, just had a bit shorter life span than any previous card ive used by a large margin.

A significant improvement for a Low-end system.

Pros: Running a ASUS M2N SLI Deluxe board with an Athlon X4 processor. WIth the 5001 BIOS update (NOT the 1804, it doesn't run the processor, though it runs the card) it is stable with 4 gigs 800mhz DDR2 Gigabyte ram. Run the clock at 220mhz and the multiplier at 14x and this will run graphics intensive programs 30-40fps, ~temp at 18C with complete stability. For the $$, it is a huge value.

Can overclock with great UI.

Cons: IT's BIg, make sure you have enough room in your case. I run a Antec Cooler Master open and it fits.

Other Thoughts: Upgrade to a quad core if you are revitalizing an old system. My Athlon X2 3.0mhz just couldnt run the threads to optimize the computing power of this card. It made a dramatic improvement on it's own, however It will hang up when under heavy load, drop frames, etc with a dual core. $135 card+ $89card + 4gigs Ram (8 gives no significant improvement) = magic.

Happy Buyer

Pros: $ - bought for under $100 with rebates, reliable without any hardware issues

Cons: Minor FPS drop when run at the highest settings with lots of people and AOEs being dropped

Other Thoughts: Runs most games at the highest setting without FPS issues. Dota2, GW2, SC2, CS:GO, WOW -- runs flawlessly. The only time I've seen a noticeable FPS drop is when 40+ people are gathered in GW2 trying to take down a huge boss.

Great card

Pros: This has been a great card, it's not top of the line but it stays cool in my case and is near silent when not playing a game. When playing a game you can only just hear it so I'd say very quiet (the main reason I bought it). It plays every game I've tried at very good settings (I can play diablo 3 on high) and is SLI capable.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great card, if you're looking for quiet with a lot of power -- get this guy.
