Awesome video card Great price Feb. 18 2011
By DanM - Published on Amazon.com
Bought this card for a new i7 2600k build based on extensive research on several tech sites and forums, along with feedback from early owners. Newegg has many firsthand reviews of this card that I found quite useful. Same price, but Amazon offers free shipping.

PROS
Superior performance- smokes my games at highest settings. Maxes out a 7.9 score on the Window Experience Rating for both the graphics Desktop performance for Windows Aero, AND the 3D business and gaming graphics performance categories... yes, 7.9 is the highest rating for Windows as of now. It does this for half the cost of the top of the line GTX580 cards.... Oh, it runs very cool, 25C at idle in my case. Dont think one can find a 560 that runs cooler.

It IS quiet! I have it in a SilverStone Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Uni-Body Frame Computer Case FT02B (Black)(a very quiet, cool, and highly recommended case) and I can not hear it. The case is on my desk 3 feet from where I sit. All I can hear is sweet airflow through the case, and the case fans are on the lowest setting. This makes me very happy as I was a bit concerned due to an earlier review here. I suspect that reviewer may have a defective or damaged card that is putting out audible harmonics. They might want to rma it for a new one. So if you value quietness in your computer like I do, then I can recommend this great card.

Value- At this price point nothing touches the perfomance of this card. It was a no brainer for me as I did not have an unlimited budget for my build. Bought this MSi GTX560 Ti because I do some gaming and flight sims, and do not want to upgrade for any games in the near future. Also work with video and the wife can certainly put it to use for her graphics and photoshop work. If all you will ever do with your computer is check your email and surf the web then you really do not need to spend this much. There are cheaper options.... If you do game and want performance within 10% of the top dogs for half the cost, well this new Value King of video cards is for you.

Quality- MSI is known for the high grade components they utilize in their products. It is no different here with military class II components and solid capacitors. This card is built to last and higher overclocking if one wants. With MSi Afterburner this is very easy to do.

CONS
Ummm... I guess I would like a regular HDMI port and not the mini one. Must say that MSi does supply an adapter though. It also does not do my laundry or the dishes. Must look elsewhere....

Conclusion- This MSi GTX560 Ti card, along with my Prolimatech CPU Cooler for Intel Socket 1156, 1366 and 775 Megahalems Rev. B (Silver)(paired with the super quiet Noctua NF-P12 120 mm Nine Blade SSO Bearing Fan with VCN - Retailare the most valued components in my computer build. Hope this review helps anyone trying to decide on a new card...

Fantastic card at a fantastic price Feb. 1 2011

After nearly four years I've finally decided to upgrade my video card, going from an 8800GT to this baby right now. The difference was noticeable right away. I typically have my gaming PC hooked up to my living room PC so I can play my games on a large screen, and it's chugging away at 1080p graphics without a hitch.

This is also all BEFORE I upgrade the rest of my system, which is coming in the next month or two. I'm already seeing MASSIVE improvements, and I'm loving it.

Two large fans on this card, with the improved heat sink over the reference model, means this card usually runs whisper quiet and very cool. My old 8800GT would get to 90 degrees Celsius after a half hour of gaming, and with the fan cranked up to a super noisy 75%. This one has the fan hang around 25-30%, not noticeable at all, and still manages to stay cool at 60 degrees C.

All in all I'm very impressed with the product, and as a long time MSI motherboard fan, I have to say I am in love with the build quality of the video card as well.

A friendly word of caution to fellow consumers March 21 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I would really like to give a friendly word of caution to people considering buying any MSI products.

While this product is great when it worked, but it is a nightmare when you have to go through MSI customer service for any repairs/RMA. I initially read horror stories on MSI customer service, but I thought it only applied to those unlucky few. That was until I had to go through customer service myself.

Here's a simple check you could do prior to spending your valuable money, call MSI customer service RMA department "(626) 271-1004 Option 2" and see if anybody picks up. If they do, great. If not, you should really think about purchasing any MSI products. To me and to most people, when we buy a product, we expect it includes the service as well.

Anyway, I recently RMA'd a product which after 3 weeks got a replacement back. The moment I started up a 3D application such as game, I realized something was wrong. The temp was going over 90C with fan @ 100%. I took out the card and realized that the heatsink itself was moving around even with the screws tightened in the back.

Since I waited 3 weeks for this, I was a bit dissappointed. So I decided to give them a call since I didn't want to pay shipping over again for a non usable product I got. I left messages in the answering machine, sent emails, and listened to elevator music. One week passed and got nothing.

So at that point a total of one month had past, so I decided to take another route. I filed a complaint via Better Business Bureau (BBB), and guess what, they called me the very next day. I take it that MSI really wants to keep that A+ rating. They said they would do advanced RMA where they send me the product in advanced with shipping label. I specifically told the representative to please test the card this time.

Few days later, I received my replacement and tried running 3D app just to make sure. Well, same issue. BF3 was reaching the same temp level with fan @ 100%. The temp used to be ~70C-ish with ~65% fan. I replied to the BBB that it did not work and I have decided to take the loss and not waste any more time. MSI's response to BBB was they have "tested" the product prior to sending. I would say that is not true, unless they're meaning of test is turning on to see if the screen shows up.

Anyway, having said all that, I would really like to recommend for customers who have complaints to go through Better Business Bureau (BBB). From my experience MSI does not deserve an A+ rating and it seems to be the fastest route where customer's time is less wasted.

Best bang for your buck in the Last Decade!!! Feb. 26 2011
By Troy - Published on Amazon.com

For a measly 250 dollars this simple upgrade moved my windows index up to 7.8, benchmarking in the HIGH 800's with all settings on EXTREME.
Brand name is all up to personal preference but I chose the AFTERBURNER team. With a base clock speed of 880 mhz and plenty of potential for overclocking this is a steal.

Cons: The only cons I've experienced is it's a bit loud with the dual fan but you can download the free software to use your own settings for the fan speed, so it really deserves 5 stars but it's worth nothing.

Buy this card don't blow a couple extra hundred to have bragging rights that fall short in benchmarks!

Must buy! March 31 2011

I won't get into detail with the performance of this card as there are plenty reviews everywhere praising the stock GTX 560 Ti. Bear in mind this MSI card is overclocked and includes a particular cooling solution, which is very note worthy.

For those of you in warmer climates this card may be specially interesting. March and April are very hot where I live, and the normal room temperature has been around 85º F - 30º C in the day. With my old setup (8800 GT Alpha Dog, Athlon 64 X2 6000+, 4x 80mm fans custom case) I reached shocking temperatures just recently, before I upgraded. According to CPUID HW Monitor, my GPU reached 90º C and my CPU 71º C! Now that is just BAD.

With my new setup (Antec 902 V3, Asus M4N98TD EVO, Phenom II X6 1090T, this card...) which I assembled a couple days ago, it idles at around 30º C and the highest I reached is 65º C playing Dragon Age II at Very High detail (DX11), 8x AA, etc etc. (As a side note, much has been said about DA2 and nVidia. Well, I am using the newest Beta drivers and I get extremely playable performance in DX11 with full detail. It could still be faster but now we know it's all in the drivers, hopefully they will speed things up again soon.)

Anyone who's read a minimal amount of reviews of the GTX 560 Ti will know it performs GREAT in benchmarks and gaming, (ignore the silly WEI measures...), but an attractive point of MSI's own version is that their Twin Frozr II cooling solution DOES work. It is very quiet and does keep the card cool even in hot weather. It is also slightly overclocked for even better stock performance, but keep in mind this card is known for its good overclockability and scalability in SLI.

MSI did a great job with this product. I am very happy with it and would recommend it to anyone with an interest in gaming and 3D applications. I would say it currently is the best price/performance ratio you'll find in any mid-to-high end video card.

** UPDATE **

With the new 270.51 BETA drivers from nVidia I can confirm I am getting 35-60 FPS on Dragon Age II with this card, running on Very High (DX11), 8x AA, 16x AF, all enhancements on including Hi-Res texture pack. I reference this game because it is known to have issues with nVidia, but this card can run it without problem with the proper drivers. Also it doesn't go even near 60º C under load if my front fans (Antec 902 V3 Case) are at full speed. Amazingly, switching to 2D mode, you can SEE the temperature reading drop degree by degree every few seconds. MSI's cooling solution is indeed quiet AND cool (in both ways!).

** UPDATE 05/21/2011 **

Having played The Witcher 2 for a few hours, I can guarantee this card performs wonderfully. I was even able to play on "Ultra" settings, albeit a little choppy for my taste. Keep in mind people with a GTX 570 SLI also play choppy with full Ultra settings. This is one of the best looking games ever, and this card plays it with ease. Temperatures did go up a bit.
