Should not be marketed as single slot

Pros: The card seems to work

Cons: Besides the extreme difficulty changing the brackets that others have already noted, the gigantic heatsink on this easily extends into the next slot. I was trying to install it into a low-profile workstation case and I had to pull the power supply out of the case just to get this to fit.

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the MSI product. We certainly value your feedback and please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenient experience. From the literature we have posted, we never marketed this item as a single slot. It is low profile, which refers to the width of the card and is common verbiage across all GPU manufacturers. If you have any further questions regarding this product or have any suggestions for improvement for us, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you. If you require further technical assistance, please feel free to contact our technical support department directly at 626.271.1004 from M to F, 9am to 6pm Pacific Standard Time.

Thanks for choosing MSI!

Best Regards,

That Low Profile Bracket Installation Tho...

Pros: Comes with a low profile bracket.

Cons: One of the screws that needs to be removed to install the low profile bracket is located underneath where the heatsink over hangs the back of the PCB. There is next to no clearance for tools here. I managed to squeeze in a phillips and un-threaded the screw without stripping it. That's removal of the standard bracket taken care of. Now is where the fun part comes in. You effectively need three hands for this. See, the HDMI port has a bit of metal shielding that applies pressure to the bracket as you are attempting to install it. Issue here is that this little bit of pressure causes misalignment between the hole in the bracket and the hole in the PCB. So you might think the solution is to hold the bracket against the back of the PCB with one hand while you thread the screw in with the other... but you'd be wrong. The angle that the screwdriver is required to enter is so extreme that the screw will not start, so here is where you need three hands. I ended up using scotch tape to hold pressure on the bracket while I used both of my hands to start this screw. You apply downforce with a phillips while actually turning the screw in the correct orientation with a set of needle nose pliers. Once its started you can finish it off with your phillips and remove the scotch tape. It's really a little more involved then it needs to be and someone in the design department should have caught this.

Other Thoughts: Why doesn't a low-profile card ship with the low-profile bracket pre-installed? That would make too much sense, right? Also might want to make sure an advertised feature of the card is actually achievable without needing to own multiple tools. Get it together, MSI.

Exactly what I was looking for

Pros: - Plug and play - 4k @ 60Hz

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: - This is a bit of a niche card. I bought it to power a Sony KD49x730E 4k TV as a monitor. For this purpose it is awesome.
- I read a few reviews saying it was hard to get the low profile plate on? I am confused by those - I used a small screw philiips screwdriver (the kind you use on most PC's) - the lower screw need to be undone/done on a bit of an angle but I had zero issues - took about 90 seconds.

It works! But taking off the bracket is so hard. I actually injured myself taking it off

Pros: It works, It's fast for a small card, fairly reasonably priced, when it's under a hundred bucks.

Cons: The bracket is a not good. Whoever designed this, I think you owe me an explanation. I had to try for 20 minutes to take the darned bracket off, you put a screw driver in at an angle and press hard to get the screw out from under the heat sink. I tried for so long, and then as crazy as it sounds, I held it in the air while using the pressure, rocking it back and forth to loosen up that screw. And I slipped and literally stabbed myself in the face. The heatsink hit me so deep it touched my cheek bone. I still have a scar on my face, which I'll have the rest of my life because of this piece of you know what.

Other Thoughts: Would I recommend to a friend? Nah. I wouldn't want them to suffer at the hands of terrible design flaws. If I had hit my eye, I would be permanently blind in that eye. My review was more colorful, but posting policies require censorship.

Silent, good for workstation and HTPC builds

Pros: Silent. Low power (30W TDP). Much better than integrated graphics.

Cons: Needed to get an adapter to connect to my DVI monitor.

Other Thoughts: This card is fine for light gaming, but if games are important to you, you should step up to a GTX 1050 or higher. I paired this with a Ryzen 5 1600 in a PC used for photo and video processing. Once desktop Ryzen APUs materialize, the value proposition of this card will probably disappear.

Awesome for a low profile card on a budget!

Pros: I threw this in an HP/Compaq 8200 Elite small form factor PC with an older I5 processor and now I can play GTA V with respectable quality settings at 1080p with a very smooth frame rate! Totally awesome! Wish I had the money for a GTX 1050, but this gets the job done quite nicely for half the price! If you're strapped for cash and have a similar PC, this is the way to go! It'll handle anything you throw at it, though some games that aren't optimized well might need lower quality settings. Doesn't overheat even with a slight overclock and it's totally silent! Really great little card for the price :)

Cons: None yet!

Nice Low Profile Video Card

Pros: 2GB memory, works in older PC (i5-2400) with Win 10 Pro, no noise - fanless, drivers loaded flawlessly

Cons: No detailed User Guide - at least I could not find one. I looked on included DVD - nothing, I went to MSI's website - nothing. (Bought card Oct 17, 2017, Installed card and looked for User Guide - want to know what is required to run multiple monitors that I have and used with previous Radeon card.) Opened Ticket on Oct 31, 2017 at MSI (Your MSI CSD ticket number: CSD103117006101) asking for user guide. MSI's auto response is that they will respond within 24 Business hours - which is 3 business days (3x8=24). Today is Nov 8, 2017 and still have not heard from MSI. I like MSI's products, I have one of their gaming boards, 990FXA-GD80, for an AMD FX 8150 with a HD 7970 graphics board, and it works great.

I have removed one egg due to no response from MSI on my request. Good thing it wasn't major. This makes me think about my next purchase as to whether I will chose MSI. I am considering moving to the Ryzen platform for the gaming computer and was considering MSI as my board of choice but the lack of response is important to me.

Another small issue is installing the low profile bracket. While I was able to remove the screw that is blocked by the heat sink, it is a pain in the neck to do so. Some others have removed the heatsink, I wouldn't recommend that, but it is a PITA to remove and reinstall the screw.

Other Thoughts: So far it seems like a nice card, it works flawlessly with one monitor - which is a 32" 1080 TV. The computer it is used on is not used for gaming but is used for word processing, emails, internet browsing, and youtube. How it will work with my second monitor when I get another cable? - Hopefully that is all I need, since I have been unable to find a complete user guide, second monitor is an old arcade game 32" 720p DVI monitor. My old radeon card (VisionTek 4550 - 512MB RAM) drove both monitors flawlessly until the last upgrade of Win 10 Pro killed the driver and Radeon does not have Win 10 drivers for the card. And the Radeon drove both monitors at their highest resolutions - 720P for the 32" arcade monitor and 1080i for the 32" TV at the same time.

Almost 750Ti Performace!

Pros: - Silent, no little fan to replace in a few years
- 30 watt TDP low profile card. What's not to love?

Cons: - As another member posted it is a little bit of a PITA to change to the low profile bracket. I used a thin screw driver to remove the one screw without removing the heat sink.

Other Thoughts: I installed this machine in a refurbed HP Pro 6300 SFF desktop with an i5 3470 with a 230 watt PSU. From the Intel HD 2500 gfx to the GT 1030 scores went:

Unigine Heaven 4.0
- Intel FPS 3.5, Score 89, Min 2.4, Max 6.6
- 1030 FPS 30.7, Score 774, Min 15.8, Max 68.2

3DMark Firestrike
- Intel Score 286
- 1030 Score 3206
