Hi, Im just wondering if neone has had experience with MSI cards because my local store is selling a 4890 for 189.99 after rebates which is appealling, but I am nervoues when it comes to buying a card from a company that i kno nuthin about with regards to graphics, ne input is appreciated... this is only for this weekend so ne fast responses r extremely appreciated haha

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.
thx alot for the reply.... i dont wear headphones but usually have my speakers pretty loud.... i probably wont be OC'ing as i dont rly kno how haha.... and $40 of the $60 worth of rebates is insatnt cuz its a weekend door crasher sale.... no driver problems or nething?
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.
