4 out of 5 eggsGood bang for the buck

Pros: Easy install with the provided drivers on the CD. Adequate for most general computer requirements.

Cons: If you are cramped for adjacent PCI slot space on your Mother Board, you may encounter a problem due to the width of the cooler on this video card

Other Thoughts: This was used for a build for my daughter and grand daughters computer primarily for school work and some light office along with Facebook and Youtube. Good performance for this type of application

4 out of 5 eggsGood Low-End Replacement for On-Board Graphics

Pros: Good low-cost entry leve graphics card to replace on-board graphics. Raised the Windows Experience rating on an Acer Aspire M1100 from a 3.0 to 4.9. Quiet fan, easy installation. Backwards-compatible with PCI-Express 1.0 boards. Good way to breathe new life into an old PC, and get some casual gaming in.

Cons: No mention on specifications page about minimum power supply requirement. Manual states a requirement of a minimum 350W supply. Almost returned it until I found some forum posts about the card working well in 250W power supplies if you have enough +12V amps to handle it. Install with caution if you don't have a 350W+ power supply.

Drivers out of the box were a bit buggy, needed to download from NVidia website. Get the most recent version before installing.

Other Thoughts: Newegg should really update their page to reflect the manufacturer recommended power supply requirements. I specifically got this card because no requirements were listed, and was considering a return. Please update before someone returns one due to misleading specs.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat video card!

Pros: Great performance, took the load off my CPU for graphics, very quiet (can't hear the fan at all), comes with great software to tweak it any which way you see fit!

Card is worth way more then what I paid for, to top it all off I got a rebate with it!

Cons: None

2 out of 5 eggsProblem solved

Pros: Review update.Card is not all that bad for a low end Video card if you get one that works.

Cons: Had to fix myself as it was not worth the money to ship it back..

Other Thoughts: To update my review..I fixed the card myself..Found it had some cold solder joints...Went through the whole board and resoldered every place that looked like it could be bad. Even found one place where there was so little solder that the wire/pin was not even making contact. Very poor quality control..Wish I could send MSI a bill for repair service..

5 out of 5 eggsHTPC upgrade

Pros: Plays back Blu-Ray (and DVD) just fine - 50% CPU utilization on an old basic Core 2 Duo

Cons: Fan is probably cheap, and will eventually fail

Other Thoughts: Been waiting for an nVidia card to get cheap - boy, this is the ticket!

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Total piece of junk...Works when it wants to.When it works it is not bad for a low end Video card but that is when it works.
Bought this card for my 90 year old mother to watch Netflix but most of the time the colors are washed out.Red is pink,green is off green/blue.
Motherboard on board Video is 100 times better..
Spend a few extra bucks and get a better card.

Cons: As above

4 out of 5 eggsDecent but loud and no fan control

Pros: Cheap ($20 after rebate). gt430.

Cons: 64-bit. Loud fan with no ability to control speed. There is no need for it to run this fast. Tried afterburn and speedfan but could not lower the speed. WEI is lower than I thought. 4.8? My asus gt430 card is a 6.7.

3 out of 5 eggsGood HTPC card w/ limitations

Pros: Low profile, and low power consumption card with enough processing power to handle all of my HTPC needs.

Cons: This card has a 64-bit memory bus. Why? Most other GT430's use a 128-bit bus. It doesn't really affect HTPC use, but it dramatically limits the card for gaming. The fan is noisy, and is always at full speed. It produces too much heat to be fanless and low profile.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the cooler with a spare heatsink that I modified to fit my low profile case. After some load testing, I added a quiet 70mm fan. If this card had come with a quiet cooler, I would have rated it higher.
