MSI GTX 980TI 3/13/2017 5:29:13 PM

Pros: I love it. MSI makes a great product. The thing is super fast. I originally bought a EVGA but the thing had coil whine so I returned it and bought this one. It's too bad they discontinued the 980 TI. I would've loved to have bought a second one and run SLI but the fact that they no longer make this card means that the prices will not likely drop anytime soon.

Cons: Runs a little hot. I average about 78-81 Degrees C, When I'm Maxing out games like Witcher 3 or BF4.

Overall Review: I would like to try the MSI 1080 ti Seahawk when they make it.

One of the best card on the market 10/15/2016 9:53:51 AM

Pros: - Fans turn off when not in use, greatly reducing passive noise levels
- It's a GTX 980 TI... it will run literally anything at high FPS max graphics (with an appropriate CPU, of course)
- LED on the side looks neat; it can also blink/breath/etc. using the (Windows only) software provided by MSI
- Relatively short, not taking up significant amounts of space
- The back of the card is a heavy metal plate for great protection (and looks)
- The coils sticking out of the top look awesome

Cons: - Makes a slight squealing noise when it's under stress
- Only 1 HDMI port... though, I suppose Display Port should be preferable these days, but my monitors don't support it, so...
- While neat, I'd rather have the LED on the side light up the words "GTX 980 TI" or something like that, instead of "MSI"

Overall Review: This card runs all my games and renders perfectly, and I've had no issues with it thus far. Also, beware of the price. I was able to get this for ~$480 including tax, and it seems to have been jacked up to ~$720 (without tax) at the time of this review. Anyway, the cons aren't that big of a deal.

The squeal is also interesting. I did a quick test in Minecraft (since I can get up to 800 FPS without an FPS cap). Depending on where I looked, the squeal got higher and lower pitched (it reminds me of a whistling kettle, but not as loud). However, capping the frame rate to 60 (v-sync'ed), the squeal completely went away.

Also, there is a neat little MSI utility that you can download to control the power status and brightness level of the LED on the side of the card. It also has some sort of "freeze" button where the fans ramp up to 100% for a minute or so to cool it down. Though, I've never needed to use it since the card has never exceeded temperatures that I'm comfortable with, though that's without overclocking.

Overall, get this card if it's within your budget and you're looking to run pretty much any GPU intensive game; it won't let you down.

Dead after 4 months. CPU wont even boot up 9/20/2016 4:27:47 PM

Pros: Easy to install. Worked great for 4 months. Then my computer froze up and wouldn't boot back into windows.

Cons: After four months and only gaming maybe around 150 hours on this card my computer froze up one day and would not boot up windows anymore. I had to install my old gpu to get windows to boot up properly. So if you want an expensive card that has a very short life on it. Get this ONE !!! SHM

Overall Review: I would NOT recommend this card.

works great 8/25/2016 6:55:34 AM

Pros: With this one graphics card I can play the games that I have had problems playing on the highest settings with my older card. I can play “Metro 2033 Redux” and Metro: Last Light Redux” games. ” Tomb Raider” and “Rise of the Tomb Raider” no problem. I just had to lean to overclock it for better performance. I’m guessing my other computer components help with the game quality. I have a SSD drive, Intel i5 3.40 GHz processor, 16 GB ram. I was using a GTX 750 Ti graphics card.

Cons: I bought it on sale for $439.99. I get back a $30.00 MSI master card to spend with a limited time to spend it. I “F”ing hate these cards. I would rather get a $30.00 check.

Overall Review: Would I recommend this card to my friends? Hell, yes !

worth it 7/31/2016 3:59:15 PM

Pros: Got two of these bad boys and the sli bridge and love it! Makes my build complete. No issues and they stay pretty cool .

Cons: Only one HDMI output not a problem until you try to play project cars on oculus and it won't display in vr. Have to do a work around for that .

Overall Review: If you don't mind 1 hdmi output then you're golden but as for everything else it's great. 4 eggs for not having two hdmi outputs.

Great GPU, powerful enough to run just about anything 7/21/2016 12:39:21 PM

Pros: -Powerful, quiet
-Price at purchasing time was awesome (I see that they are out of stock as of the date of this review)

Cons: None

Overall Review: This card is great. I upgraded from a GTX 570 (good card but started to get a little long in the tooth). I ran the 3DMark Firestrike test and it flew threw it. I went on the ran the Firestrike extreme and it was able to sustain good framerates. I currently have been playing Wolfenstein: The New Order at 1900x1200 with all settings set at max and this card doesn't even feel it. Would definitely recommend this card to anyone with the PCI-e 3.0 slot motherboard.

pew pew pewwww 7/13/2016 12:31:48 PM

Pros: Such a looker and by george is it a fast GPU. Really though, this thing is rediculously quite even under massive loads. It handles almost any game you can throw at it exceptionally well.

Cons: Impractical to buy this with the new release of the 10 series.(I bought mine just before they released.)

Overall Review: The OC concerns are notable but I personally don't think it's that big of an issue. I suppose in the future it will be a problem but I'm able to run new games at 60 frames on high-ultra with no problem without the OC
