i've had this card for around 3 months, and it runs pretty solid. I've OCed it to 920mhz gpu and 1010memory and its pretty stable there. I haven't really tried messing it around too much, so I could probably get a little higher.

You shouldn't really factor in the rebates in the the cost b/c often times it'll take 6months for it to get back to you, if at all.

One thing about this card is that the stock fan is loud above 40%, but if you wear headphones, it doesn't really matter at all.

Good luck with MSI rebates. Read Newegg reviews on MSI cards and the many complaints about rebates not received.

I got my rebate from MSI, they like me :sol: 

Most companies outsource the rebates anyways. I just sent in for rebates to a Asus and Gigabyte. Both companies outsourced to the same vendor so I entered my information on the same web site and mailed my letters to the exact same address for both of them.

By the way, I like how they tell you for $1 they will send out your rebate check faster. :sarcastic:

I had an NVIDIA 9600gt from MSI. It's been over a year and a half and it's overclocked quite a bit.... still running very stably.

Rebates are all proceeded at the same place. It's only because it takes 6 months to get. I almost always received my rebates. The only time I didn't received it was back when I bought Half-Life one...

if you wanted to OC it a little w/o changing voltages, you can always just use the Catylist Control Center and do it there. enjoy your card
