Experience: 5 Days


Very good performance for the price,
Runs really cool
Fans a bit loud
A great card for the price, if you buy it with rebates. I am running mine one a 460W Enermax PSU, but be careful with power, as If you do not have a good quality PSU, 460W might not be enough.

Experience: 2 Days


military class components, designed for overclocking so MANY useful options including on-card voltage wire harnesses for mem, gpu and something else i forget. cool box design and quiet operation.
last year's mid-range gaming card.
super great value at $134.99 CAD (after mail in rebate and instant rebate) they are going for $120 used on craigslist. good enough for occasional gaming or someone on a bugdet who wants to have a super reliable gpu that can be pushed to the limits and not break the next day like XFX does. and it's msi, so it's automatically good to begin with.

Experience: 6 Months


Excellent overclocking compatibilities
Excellent Gaming Graphics at max settings
Maintains cool temperatures while playing Call Of Duty Black Ops or other high end games
None really it is a great Video Card
This Video card was a replacement for my Nvidia GTS250 With 1GB GDDR3 Ram
This meets more then my expectations
Perfect for gaming running at 100FPS
Very Quite (enjoyed Very Much)
I would Very Much recommend to a friend

Everything about this card from the price to the packaging and utility has exceeded my expectations of mid level video cards
I just can't think of any I love this card
This card is a rockstar as soon as you get it install the MSI afterburner utility and go from 780mhz to 1k on air without making changes to voltage! runs Entropia Universe "CE2" really well with physx settings pinned, most video settings on High and a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080. E6750, ddr2800 2x2gb, I will buy another one once I upgrade my mobo to something SLI. Unless its DOA you will be more then happy with this video card, it will even kiss you on the forehead and tuck you in at night.

Experience: 1 Months


Best gtx 460 and its cheap, cant beat that.
This card is great it runs everything great on my screen which is 1080p and plays battlefield with almost all settings on high and i can tell you the game looks amazing and plays very smooth with this car powering it. THis being one of the lesser expensive gtx 460's at least when i bought makes it an exceptional value since this card over clocks well and the thermal solution keeps it very cool.

Experience: 4 Days


Runs Cool...Quiet.
Smaller than my GTX 260
none as of yet
have a 25CM fan on side of comp idles at 20*- 22* cel
can beat the price of $150
Had it at 850 Core and 1900 mem with no voltage adjustments
Don't know why it doesn't show I'm a verified owner...Bought it from NCIX...and only got 25 points instead of 100

bang for the buck v $155+hst - $20 rebate, and ofc performance
there are better cards if youre willing to spend $$
idle at 28-30 C
99% usage at 50-51 TOPS
(via speedfan and msi afterburner)

What else can i say?
runs SC2 at around 9x FPS at 1920 x 1080p at Extreme Settings

Experience: 1 Months


Low price
Very well built
No free game? Starcraft 2 free trial doesn't really cut it. I don't really need a free game though.
For the low low price (150 dollars without MIR? O>O), very fast performance, and also runs very cool! I'm very satisfied with this card, for the price, it's unbeatable! The shipping was very fast and the video card was packed well.

Experience: 3 Weeks


Uses less power than my old 8800GTS
Great price for performance
Card died after only having it for 3 weeks
Already owned one of these cards since January of this year and decided to buy a second one to use it in sli. The duo worked fine for 3 weeks till this card died. Luckily, NCIX was decent enough to exchange my dead card for a new one. So far my replacement card has been working well in sli. Overall, quite happy with my setup.

Comment: The MSI Hawk is a great card which retails for a price that will ensure mass market appeal. Granted, the voltage read points will be completely pointless for the vast majority of consumers but all of the other features just add to its already outstanding value.

Comment: From a performance standpoint, it's impossible to argue with the numbers this card puts up, at its price point. This is almost a 5850-class card.

Comment: MSI's GeForce GTX 460 HAWK is rock solid version of a factory overclocked GTX 460 card. Thanks to MSI's clock speeds of 781 MHz GPU and 900 Memory memory, the card delivers about 10% more performance than a reference design GTX 460 with 1 GB of memory.
