The MSi R5670 Cyclone 1G is a mid-range video card aimed at gamers interested in overclocking. This is a redesign of the original RR5670-PMD1G, with a more efficient cooling system and easy access to the system's clock settings. It also has 3-way SLI support, allowing users to purchase three of these cards and link them all together in one PC for improved performance. By itself, it is a reasonably priced card capable of handling most applications and games at a reasonable performance level.
