The MSI Ventus XS OC is a solid design at NVidia's MSRP for the 1660Ti. A two-fan, two-slot design with a backplate will fit in just about any system, short of an ITX system (pictures in my review are the 1660Ti installed in a Micro-ATX case build).For under $300, the performance and capabilities of this card blow away any and all competition. You can pretty much expect GTX 1070-like performance (some games, it will run faster than a 1070, others slower, but on average, expect pretty-much 1070 performance at a cost that is less than the 1070 was when it launched). The #1 card people use on STEAM right now is the GTX 1060-6GB... this card is a solid 35%-40% faster than a GTX 1060 and will probably replace it as the #1 card on STEAM in the near-future (it's that good). In AMD's corner, at the same price point is the RX 590... this card is 25% faster than a RX 590 and uses half the power consumption, running cooler, quieter and playing games better than the RX 590.Nvidia has also enabled AMD Freesync monitor support in their GeForce drivers... and it can be any Freesync monitor, not just one on their shortlist. Simply use the latest NVidia drivers, turn-on Freesync on your monitor choose "Set up G-SYNC" in your NVidia Control panel and turn it on (only works in Win10, btw). I am using my 1660Ti with an AMD Freesync monitor and it works just great!There really is no other card in this price bracket that offers better performance, better power usage or that runs cooler for the gaming muscle this card provides. MSI's conservative 2-fan, 2-slot design in the Ventus XS is a well-rounded solid choice without strange gimmicks, too many or too few fans or crazy 3-slot designs seen from it's competitors... all this at NVidia's MSRP makes this simply the best graphics card under $300 at the time of launch.One of the pictures is a GPU comparison using the Radeon RX 580 as a baseline of 100% tested on Assassins Creed Odyssey at 1080p (courtesy of Tech Deals on YouTube)... every other card listed is in comparison to the RX 580 on the same game and shows how much faster it is in comparison... so the GTX 1660Ti is 42% faster than an RX 580 in that test. Certainly there are faster cards out there, but you need to compare how much you are spending for the performance you are getting... the 1660Ti is a great card for the performance at this price point.*Late 2019 update: my initial review was written launch week of the 1660Ti (Feb 2019)... as with anything in the tech industry, things change as time marches on. While this card is still an awesome card, and I have ZERO regrets having purchased it and enjoy it every day, if you're looking for a new GPU at the end of 2019 under $300, the only real competition to the 1660Ti is NVidia's own competition... the recently released 1660 Super. The 1660 Super's performance is nearly identical to the 1660Ti across the board... usually the 1660Ti will just barely edge-out the 1660 Super by a frame or two here or there, so the 1660Ti is still technically faster than the 1660 Super, but not anything that anyone would notice (literally only one or two FPS in any game)... the difference is the 1660 Super is cheaper than the 1660Ti... so you can save a good chunk of change and ALMOST get the exact same performance of a 1660Ti if you pick up a 1660 Super. If you already or recently purchased a 1660Ti, you still have a great card and the best of the 1660-series... if you're about to buy one however, I might suggest looking at the 1660 Super line of cards, as they have basically the same performance at a slightly lower price point (about $50 less).For reference, I took pictures of my build with the GeForce GTX 1660Ti installed...Intel i7 4790 (Haswell)MSI H87M-G43 Motherboard w/16GB DDR3Fractal Design Focus G Mini MATX case

I've had 960's, 1080's, 1080ti's, 1050ti's, and now this 1660ti....and the feeling never changes when you open that sweet sweet anti static wrapper.MSI has definitely delivered a nice piece of hardware for this price.I plan on a gentle overclock and am totally psyched to work this mid range card hard.

This is similar in performance to a GTX 1070 (non TI) at a lower price. If you can find a GTX 1070 for cheap or at the same price, that's still a better option. I bought this to hold me over till Nvidia release the 3000 series next summer. It's a good budget card. I can plays games at 1080 way above 60 FPS in most games.The color is silver, but it looks good in a white build. It's plasticky, including the back plate, and the fans don't stop when idle like on the higher end card but it's quiet and only get loud under heavy load.One of the better graphics card for budget build.

I love it but I have to return for a replacement. See pic. At high loads I get "space invader" artifacts and the system eventually freezes. I use this mostly for graphic design. It smashes my old Radeon 480x. Can't wait for the replacement

User says:

Card was awesome low noise level and good performance. For the price point, I think it does the job and more and will allow that person who’s just getting started out with either streaming or gaming to get a nice clean set up

User says:

This is a great card and performs great for the price. It is worth every penny, and it looks nice too. I have used these in a few builds recently.

User says:

I say 4 stars tho because Nividia really needs to get their control panel situation fixed. but it's good. works fine.

User says:

Its not the greatest graphics card but its good for a starting build.

User says:

Definitely a powerhouse of a card , wish the fans were more quiet, or off when idle

User says:

The perfect gpu

A+++

What more could I say that the title doesn't. I was a little worried about getting another Nvidia card because I have had bad experiences with them in the past, but I was out of options, and I am glad I made the choice to go with this one. I had some friends help me buy it to replace my broken RX460. Now, the 460 still worked but the fans didn't so I couldn't use it for gaming anymore without severely damaging the card. For starters, I don't play the typical games that everyone else plays, so no fortnite, pubg, or apex legends here. I play real games like MMOs, Destiny 2, Monster Hunter World, stuff like that. I immediately noticed the improvement the first time I started MHW. My framerate went through the roof once I was in-game. I went from 30-40fps to 100-130fps, no stuttering and no tearing on screen, and that goes for all games I play on PC.The pros of this card...It is quiet even when under load, has yet to get anywhere near the thermal throttle point. I think the hottest I have seen it get is 67c, and that was under repeated stress tests because I was curious as to how hot it would get.The cons...I really don't have any complaints about it yet other than it only comes with the grey color LOL.My honest opinion is if you want RTX 2060 level performance but can't afford a 2060, get this card. You will not be disappointed, especially since now that Nvidia has given it the ability to use ray tracing with the April update coming later this month.
