Most Critical Review

Doesn't like 64 bit OS

Adobe Photoshop Elements 9
Adobe Photoshop Elements 9

Pros: Works as designed on my 32 bit system. Elements has always been a great program

Cons: It refuses to install on my Win 7 64 bit system. Gives error. Lots of suggestions one the internet to get it to work, none seem to work. Including the ones from Adobe. I am sure it is an OS problem but it is extremely frustrating to pay money for a program and not be able to use it. There should be a disclaimer somewhere.

Don't trust MSI

MSI GeForce GTX 280 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N280GTX-T2D1G OC

Pros: Trying to think of any advantages, can't seem to find any

Cons: I have just built a very high end system with Vista x64, 9770 extreme quad core, etc, etc. Thought this card would be a terrific addition. Newegg exchanged the first one without problem, couldn't get it to work. The second one does work but the drivers are not very good on x64 Vista. And, see my other thoughts. I would avoid MSI, not a company I equate with quality anymore.

Overall Review: I had heard that MSI was a good company with good support. I have found that to be totally false and I would avoid them at all costs. I have sent numerous emails to them over the last month for some help on the card and also to see if they, like all the other companies, plan to rebate cash to customers who paid full price ($659.99 in this case). Either MSI customer service is brain-dead or they just really don't care but I have heard nothing related to my questions. Remember, you have been warned.
