GIGABYTE GV-N630D3-2GL GeForce GT 630 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The two reviews on this sight were highly misleading, very subjective, and almost caused me to purchase a more expensive option for no reason.

This little card packs a punch for it's small size and small price, the large number of Cuda cores/Processors make it a good choice as a low budget 3D rendering card.

By itself it only renders at between 1/5 and 1/4 the speed of a single one of my GTX 680's, but that's more or less what I expected, and that is stellar performance for it's size and price.

Cons: None in sight so far. For my purposes it seems "you get what you pay for," so if you want a more powerful and versatile card, then purchase a more powerful and versatile one.

This card is also not the best (or cheapest) option for video playback. So once again, buy something else if you want a card for playing high res movies and TV shows. This is a low end gaming/rendering card and for that purpose it does it's job very well.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this as a "last PCI slot" choice to work alongside my 2x GTX 680's for rending in Blender Cycles. Obviously it doesn't hold a torch to them, but it adds an edge to my rendering times so I'm satisfied, especially for the chicken scratch that I paid for it and the nil time I spent installing it.

The card slid in between my PSU and two large GPUs with ease, didn't have to fiddle with it at all to get it in, didn't knock out any power cables or get in the way of anything.

I wouldn't use this for gaming unless I was majorly cash stricken, but as a choice for a supplementary rendering card it stands out as a good high value option.
