My System Specs

Default Worthwhile setting up software for new "killer" NICs?

Is there some kind of magic that these things do other than some kind of traffic prioritizing on the target PC? If I'm not typically downloading while gaming is there a potential benefit that I'm not thinking of?

No. It's generic QoS done poorly IMO. Even if you disable the software suite, it still tends to play strangely with certain network behaviors. I suggest doing a Google search on installing the driver without the software suite.

Done, thanks.

That's a bit of a pain to have to go through, but it's refreshing to note that MSI's forums still have very helpful mods with access to workarounds, and authority to post links to those files.
