Conclusion

 

As asked before, has MSI come up with another winner in the GeForce range? The answer in my opinion is yes. Overclockability is at a premium, 3D scores are quite high for a value card and the additional option to add a riser module for Digital Flat Panel and TV Out is quite a nice option. The only real problem is the wasted PCB spade driving up the cost of the card a bit but with a expected retail value of $320 AUD. This card gets a 8 out of 10 on the Value Meter!
