Pros: Pros are runs League of Legends nicely with graphics set to Medium-High, Character Inking On, Anti-aliasing Off. Twisted Treeline map (3v3) framerate averaged 60fps and seemed even higher on Summoner's Rift (5v5). Card can do 4K resolution 4096x2160. No need to upgrade power supply only 300 watt required which is what machines have. Card draws a modest 19-23 watts.
Cons: No fan means card could heat up, but heatsink is designed well, extending past card to allow heat to rise off. Idle card is 35 C (95 F). When done playing LOL card was at 45 C (115 F).
Other Thoughts: GeForce GT 720 Passmarks at 753, quite an upgrade from my Radeon HD 5450 scoring 232). For comparison a GeForce GT 730 gets 931 marks, might be worth spending that extra few bucks. Says it can screen capture video games, nice. Came with *two* low profile brackets, one with HDMI only, as well as cool red plugs to cover the graphics ports not in use.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cool, quiet, decent power, great for my work machine (HP EliteDesk 800 G1 SFF) and easy to install. The fan is great, don't even hear it but on the other hand there is a little background office noise in the room. Now for the good part.
Banchmark, Bioshock Infinite at *VeryHigh* settings, 1680x1050 16:10 format: Average fps 31.56 (minimum 11.73).
For comparison my Radeon R7 250 also a 1GB GDDR5: Average fps 35.24 (min 16.70). So a little slower than my home card but both over 30 fps.
In 3D Mark - Fire Strike / Sky Diver / Cloud Gate / Ice Storm:
Intel HD Graphics 4600 - 738, 3535, 7290, 62903
GeForce GT730 (this card) - 1516, 5379, 10294, 87001
Radeon R7 250 1GB GDDR5 - 1924, 6325, 8583, 91659
Overall a good budget card.
Cons: Fps can drop in high-demand scenarios. But on average over 30 fps in Bioshock Infinite tests.
Other Thoughts: Can't believe how cool Bioshock Infinite is and that this budget card can run it with High effects. Get this card and game if you like artsy stuff. Good story.READ FULL REVIEW
