    Looks nice and does its job, although I wish its power consumption was a bit lower and had more overclocking headroom without resorting to bios mods.

    This is one of the best cards for the price to performance ratio. This card works perfect to max games out at 60 FPS

    Favorite component of my build, perfect card for 1080p and does not disappoint, so far runs any game at ultra settings well over 60 FPS (BF1, BF4, FO4). Played for 4 hours and runs nice and cool under load (59-62C). Software is easy to use, RGB lighting on MSI logo, different lighting effects as well, great looking GPU.

    Solidly designed card. RGB can be used to monitor temperature range

    Not easy to fit into this case, although that was obvious since it's listed as 10mm longer than the case allows. Despite this, I found a way to make it fit after about 30 minutes without breaking anything or altering the case. I did take the upper drive cage out, that seemed to help. Got this at jet.com and it runs all the games I play, Dota 2, Overwatch, ARK, above 60fps no problem. If I run ARK on epic it slows down a bit but that also happens on my main rig with an MSI 1070 Pro Gaming X.

    An OUTSTANDING card for 1080p, especially at the price.

    This is overkill for what I want to do. However I picked this up a few months ago and so seeing the current prices and availability of these cards makes me glad I got it. This is my first dedicated graphics card and it runs well.

    Runs DOOM (2016) on Ultra with Vulkan settings. Best looking game I have ever played. Smooth, and runs relatively cool. Technically this one of the weak links in my build but it is going to do everything I need it to do for years to come.

    An open letter to MSI.

    Why do you make your products red? The actual card is glorious but why on earth is it red? I know that some of the new products aren't as red, but that doesn't really excuse this. At least it gives me an excuse to paint it white.

    This is a good GPU for the money. It's got some nice pretty lights and a factory OC. The fans don't even kick on unless they actually need to so it's really quiet for normal use.
