What can I say, this card is a brilliant mid-range solution for any gamer on a budget. At just under £100 it undercuts the ATI x1950 Pro in terms of pricing and with a little overclocking beats it in performance in some tests too. Granted this card is not perfect – I really cannot fathom the reasoning behind the leaning cooler- but its performance and its noiseless cooling solution (and DX10 support, I guess) means for for £90 you are getting a damn good deal. For these reasons, this card has earned the value award.
|Good performance||Very poor clearance with chipset and memory|
|Overclocks well||Ugly cooler|
I’d like to thank MSI for providing us with this GPU.
For those looking to buy this card, you can get them over at QuietPC.
