Grading

Military grade components are not just some fake statement, there have always been parts that have a notably wider temperature range for starters that are slightly more expensive (not even by that much most of the time), and those are usually known as 'military grade' since the army has a set of requirements defined, and the difference in temperature specs isn't just 1 degree either.
So when you have part on a PCB that gets hot and stays hot for extended periods (or get very cold, below 0C/32F) then it can pay off to have the components be more sturdy than standard, it should extend their lifetime also.

Now if that's needed on a budget model GPU is questionable, but on an expensive HD5870 or Fermi or something that would be nice.

Maybe they should of made a front panel for it too so the user could see the voltages from the front of the PC.

So, if you have more than one DVI only monitor, you have to pick up an additional 100 dollar DP to DVI adapter, right?
not really - you could just go for a HDMI to DVI option - you can get a pre built cable for around £8 here. their relatively cheap. the card might also come with a DVI to HDMI adaptor - buy yourself a HDMI cable & use it with the HDMI to DVI adaptor. its very simple

Interesting. I wonder who can o.c. better, this or the VaporX? And the price must be sthe same for a true comparison...
I bet they are VERY close (in temps and OCing)

Im hoping the prices start dropping soon (so the 5830s wont be too high, lol)
I thought the 5770s were supposed to be around $139(if either of the cards goes that low Im getting a pair just to have)
I really wonder what the reasoning is to have only 1 Crossfire connection??? First it is XFX now its MSI.
the amount of people running 3 of these is so small the extra PCB real estate made it a no brain er for the engineers.

Military grade components are not just some fake statement, .
Do you have some details on specifics?

Are they just using high quality japanese capacitors that other companies just call high quality Japanese capacitors and calling them military grade? I really doubt this lowend card has better components than say an Asus or XFX. I could be wrong though

I guess I should have been more clear, what I meant that they exist and aren't some imaginary item, and I was actually thinking of active components rather than capacitors, but I have no data on this specific card, I was merely responding to people that seemed to think that 'military grade' doesn't even exist for consumers, and I base myself on the time I tinkered with electronics and bought parts and had to decide to pay the extra money for parts with better specs but functionally the same really, or the standard items that are fine for normal home use.

It could be just so much BS in this case though, no idea.
