Pros: The display port worked well and the card was very powerful. I only played Escape From Tarkov for a few minutes and was getting 140-150 frames on Ultra settings which is amazing.
Cons: The HDMI port was doa as soon as I tried to plug into it with my elgato to set up my stream PC and second monitor I noticed that it wasn’t registering the elgato. I tried multiple cables and monitors, tried win+p to activate it, tried Nvidia control panel and that didn’t work. Spoke to MSI tech support and they recommended an RMA to the seller.
Overall Review: I loved the card when I was just using display port, but when it didn’t function with the HDMI, I became worried that the card may have other hardware issues. This was my first time purchasing an Nvidia card for my own build and I am very upset that now I have to wait several more days possibly weeks because my card is out of stock and I may not be issued a replacement. Instead, I will have to wait for a refund if it isn’t back in stock, but I can’t order a different card because if it does come back in stock in the next week I’ll be shipped back the replacement. So I’m in quite the dilemma and I wish the card wasn’t doa. I understand things happen, but it’s still frustrating because I have a brand new build that costed upwards of 2K to build and I can’t use it.
