card howling, blurred screen,
Bummer. Return it.
can i refund it?
I wouldn't know. You need to contact where you bought it from.
That would depend on who or where you got it from... You would be better off asking them.
Edit: @erocker... You beat me to it.
My last dealings with MSI product left me feeling skeptical about their CS. I bought a 660 Ti PE OC that apparently had some odd compat quirk with my display. It wouldn't recognize my Panasonic 32" HDTV as HDCP capable, even though it is, and I got BSOD when switching between TV and PC inputs. They admitted in a Newgg product comment that it may have been defective, yet implied my system must be messed up.
Strange that the GTS 250 I had prior and the 7970 I have now have no such problems. Messed up system, nope. Messed up MSI CS. On the phone they never offered to RMA it and it took several calls because I kept getting different opinions from each tech. Furthermore I had to reiterate the symptoms every call because they never generated a support ticket, and that's without any toll free line to call on.
A lot of people talk crap about ASUS support lately, but MSI have really slipped a lot IMO.
Before we go all RMA it...
Coil whine, though it can certainly be annoying is normal(ish). Some cards it does it, most, not. When you say blurry, I assume you installed the drivers and set to your monitors native resolution. Your first post had almost literally nothing to go on...
are you, by any chance, shuffling around your house with wool socks on while holding your video cards?
