Reviews from the Web
Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.
MSI have taken this core design and turned it on its head, offering not only a card which has a better cooler, faster clocks and lower noise levels, but one which manually overclocks to levels we previously thought impossible.
(from review) - The MSI N460GTX Cyclone graphics card comes factory overclocked and has tons more headroom left in it that can be easily unlocked with the MSI AfterBurner overclocking software utility.

I didn't tough with this card and my i7 2600k I could run all the existing game at the moment with max settings. Didn't even overclock and all my game are running at least at 40-50 FPS (I mainly play First person shooter game )
This is a great card, I picked it up after my EVGA card died on me and I needed a replacement right away. It was on sale so I jumped at it quick, and I'm glad I did. The overclocking capability on this card is great -- you can push it quite far if that's your sort of thing. I've been gaming for over 6 hours now and it's only a little warm to the touch.
Awesome card. However I still feel the price is a bit high (even thought I got mine for $180). Cyclone is a really good cooling design so if this card goes on sale don't hesitate to pull the trigger.
