I bought this card back in November and it worked great till about a month ago. I had to send it back to MSI for repairs which took no longer then 15 days as the website stated. It's been over a month and I still don't have my video card back from repairs. They sent me a couple emails offering a low-ball refund because they said they don't have the parts or product in stock to replace it.

So now I am out a video card I never know when I'll get back. MSI support just seems horrible, I will never buy another prodcut from them again.

Not when there are good companies like XFX and Gigabyte that will just send you a free upgrade because they actually care about the customer.

Lots of folks bought the Dell XPS 8300 a few years ago and are now due to upgrade the video card to handle newer games and programs. I ran an ATI 5770 in this box since it was purchased, and wanted to maximize the video capability within the limits of the 8300's 460 Watt power supply and 2 6 pin power leads. This card seemed to be the top choice and it has proven to be just so. It is very stable even with the factory overclock, and remained stable with some additional overclocking that I tried but found unnecessary. Be warned that this is a long card, you need a full size case or tower like the 8300 to fit this card.

Ok, so it took me forever to decide on a GPU to pair with my Pentium G3258 before I settled on the MSI 270x. A ton of research lead me to keep my expectations at bay for how well it would perform, but so far this card is a beast and I couldn't be happier! As a note, it's a very big card (10.5 inches, I think?), so make sure your case and mobo will hold it ok.

Current stable OC is *1170mhz core/1470mhz mem at 1.25v (+50mv, PL+20% in MSI Afterburner). However, for most of my gaming I've been keeping it stock just to see how it performs. Here are some in-game numbers, all taken with FRAPS enabled, and at 1080p

Unigine Heaven bench: 707, 28.5fps avg. (stock, FRAPS disabled) / 705, 28.5fps avg. (stock, FRAPS enabled) / 765, 30.5fps avg. (overclocked, FRAPS disabled)
The Witcher 2: 50-70fps; Ultra settings, Vsync Off, No Ubersampling
FarCry 3: 50-60fps*; Ultra settings, 4x AA
DIRT 3: 60fps locked, Ultra settings
Metro 2033 Redux: 45-60fps, Ultra settings
Total War - Shogun 2: 40-60fps, Ultra settings
Alien Isolation: 50-60fps, Ultra settings
BF4 MP: 50-70fps*, High settings

*EDIT (12/1/14): Messed around with beta drivers and updated fps numbers to reflect. Also, pulled back on OC to 1170 core/1470 mem for better stability in-game.

Max temp (gaming): 63C
Idle temp: 30-35C
VRAM usage: typically between 1-1.5GB in-game

Overall, I'm pleased with this card's performance at 1080p. Fans are quiet enough for me, and I usually kick them up pretty high with a custom afterburner fan profile to keep temps down. Needs 2 6 pin PCI connections so make sure your PSU has the hookups or use some molex adapters. Overall, I'm loving it as an addition to an overall low cost build. I'll keep adding data and answering questions as I own it longer.

Pros:
*Quiet* - This thing is quiet, I've used mostly reference card coolers with the blower style cooler and I have to say that the difference is striking. Those are generally loud, some of them can be as loud as hair dryers if you accidentally kick the fan up to 100%. This thing is barely audible over quiet case fans when manually stuck at 56%
*Powerful* - For the price this think packs a punch @1080p. Less shaders than more expensive cards (280x, etc) make this card much more oriented towards 1080p gamers than higher resolution gamers who should look for cards with more shaders and memory. That being said this thing handles 1080p extremely well and thrives at it, I'd give more specifics but that's what sites like anandtech and techpowerup are for. If you're reading this you've probably already decided to get a 270x, you're just not sure which one.
*Cool* - Did I mention the cooler yet? It's good at cooling the card; running it at my custom 56% and mining at 1149core/1500memory it's sitting at 57C in a decently ventilated case.
*Mining* - Good for the price; I can get ~485KH/s LTC running about 140 watts (depending on PSU efficiency) on the card so far. Definitely not bad for the price, and add the fact that it runs so cool and quiet means you've got a great card for the casual miner. It won't wake your neighbors and leave them wondering why there's a helicopter in the neighborhood while you're mining like my reference 7970 will.
*Voltage control* - I've never owned MSI before but I have to admit that I'm liking the company quite a bit so far. They let you control the boost voltage, something most companies don't do anymore. Lots of cards are voltage locked, this one isn't.

This GPU is in my opinion the best for the price. It gives you nice high settings in almost all games for only $200. Msi also has their twin frozer fans which make it extremely quiet. Even if you are a Nvidia fan you have to admit this is the best performance for the price.
