Not worth the headache
Pros: When it runs it is sweet... brought a new life to my old gaming PC. However.....
Cons: Major Software compatibility issues with Windows XP, has taken some time but I got it working fairly stable. I'm not please and will be requesting an RMA if I can't get it to work any better than what it does.
Overall Review: Pass on this card, they are much better cards for around the same price.
Hardware good, could state what OS the drivers are compatible with though
Pros: Plenty of sata expansion slots. I like the features and works well with the i5 I purchased along side of it.
Cons: I upgraded an older PC I built back in late 08. I don't know if it states that the software is only compatible with windows 7 and 8; but I only found that out by going to MSi website to download drivers. Granted, if you're building a new PC from scratch you will most likely buy a "current" version of windows and will not have my problem. I managed to get the PC up and going, but I have to wear a USB headset for sound, that is, until I buy windows 7/8 or a sound card.
