All tests are done in 1920x1080.

MSI makes really amazing GPU's for the price. I just picked this up at my local electronics store because it had a really amazing price with the mail in rebate, so I couldn't resist. I could not be happier. It is slightly overclocked right out of the box (920/1050 instead of 900/1050) and I managed to get it up to 980/1150 without adjusting the voltage. With fans constantly spinning at 50%, I get 70-90 FPS in BC2 @ Maxed settings with AFx16 and AAx2. I can't even hear the GPU with fans at 50% but at 50% the card runs much cooler than at 30%.

This card runs extremely cool! Mine always stays below 60 degrees in BC2 even while overclocked. In Crysis, I stay below 65 degrees.

I am extremely happy with the product and will be picking up a second one within a year and running them in Crossfire. CF 6870's outperform a single 6970 by quite a bit!

MSI has a really nice RMA system and they honor their warranty. They also honor their mail-in rebates, even though they take a little longer than I would like. This GPU has 3 years warranty with MSI.

I highly recommend this card to anyone looking for a great deal on a low-tier high end GPU.

My 9800GT card got old and died. Rather than cross-fire the on-board video my system came with, I updated with this product. The software comes with a package that updates from the web as part of the installation. The drivers did not work directly off the cd, but the update was smooth and went very well.

I've been very pleased. Generally runs at Windows 7 7.8 to 7.9 on the benchmarks without needing any tweaking. It is also very cool. Ever since I had a motherboard die with exploding capacitors, I've been very aware of temperature issues.

Takes up two slots, very quiet (even with the case off, as we ran some tests before putting the case back on), the heat sink materials weigh enough I cut a piece of wooden dowel to support it in the case, just to be secure. But the card seems to run quieter than the Antec powersupply. It was kind of fun to realize just how quiet it is.

The price is competitive, the speed and resolution slightly better than the reference set, the cost is very competitive, I'm not sure how I would cross-fire this one (guess I'll need a new motherboard if I ever need the additional graphics power), came with cables and tabs and in a box that was very, very well put together. Will I get the ten years use advertised? I can't imagine the card staying current for that long, but it is solid enough that I would not doubt the promised lifespan.

So I'm big on having no noise when it comes to my computer and this thing does a great job. I have the Antec SOLO II, noctua heatsink and an ssd and it's hard to tell if my computer is even on. Great performing card as well...

This video card is amazing! It runs extremely quiet and performs extremely well in both gaming and video rendering. Great for video editing and autocad users who don't wish to spend too much on a FireGL graphics cards.

Got mine a while ago and I did read that the thing idled at like 60c and had a sticky residue on it I was hesitant but I bought it because it was such a good deal. It did indeed have some kind of sticky stuff on it and sure enough it was idling at 60c and playing games was a no go really.

Took off the entire heatsink to see if anything was broken or something and I come to find that it had no thermal paste almost at all. It did look like pretty crappy quality thermal paste what little there was on it so i washed it off and applied my own thermal paste job with some high grade thermal paste and my tempts instantly shot down. Idling at 30c and getting 60c under load like it was suppose too.

Was afraid i hate bought a faulty product but with a little bit of finicking around with it you can fix it and not have to send it back for another with the same problems.

This product is great. I ordered two of these and configured them in crossfire x. My Windows experiences went up to a 7.8 for areo. My only complaint is the memory speed should have been a little higher< But I will OC that.

I bought this at the first of the month (3/13) and I'm impressed! I don't use the cards for graphics I use them to crunch in distributed computing. So I have little idea of frames per second and such but, I can tell you that what I do is flat out 100% load 100% of the time 24/7. This thing kicks out 260,000 points per day on Moo (a computing project) and stays cool(66 - 67) even in a cheap case. Right out of the box I cranked it up to; Clock Core 1006 and Memory Clock to 1103 with AMD Afterburner and with only 2 bumps in Core Voltage. If you are going for something for gaming I would think you would be hard pressed to beat this card in this price range. I plan to buy another at the first of the month (4/13) and one a month until they run out. I have 11 systems running so this could go on for awhile considering the Crossfire abilities.
