Is MSI a reliable GPU manufacturer?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I'm getting ready to order a twin frozr II gtx 560 ti from newegg and after reading some of the reviews from newegg i'm getting kind of worried.
a lot of people have had the card die on them after a few months of use and this is really starting to concern me.
Do any of you have the card,for how long have you had it and does it still work?
thanks for the help

All technology has it's faults - sometimes things die - sometimes they go forever. Every brand produces some kind of quality product (not saying all brands produce the same quality components.) - the thing is though, none of these companies would be in business if they sold cheap, defective, low quality components.

Generally, I have heard that MSI makes great quality GPUs and mediocre quality motherboards.

I had a 6790 from MSI, it was pretty awesome! My ownership was less than a month overall and of course you may get a dead one but that happens to every manufacturer. I say buy with confidence.

I have heard that MSI's customer service does not even come close to EVGA or ASUS. But they do make quality Graphics card with the TFIII's

Many people have said they have had many headaches with the customer service, but at the same time people have said that asus was annoying too

Evga probably has the best warranty/ customer service
