Pros: This little video card was a nice upgrade for the box it went into and has worked for hundreds of demanding hours with a very limited power supply. good thing it didn't need additional 6 or 8 pin power.
Summary: My PC video board failed twice because video cards fan faced upwards and would fail because dust would enter bearings quickly causing cooling fan failure... This fan less video board eliminated the failure mode and had advanced in performance and gave new life to my PC.... Love IT....
Summary: This is a really nice card even though it's not aimed for gaming but its will play games I overclocked the mem to 2ghz and the core to 975 still below 50c when playing games. My rig AMD athlon x2 2 core processor 3gb ram and this card
Pros: The card is still running Overclocked to the max and it's still going. I had to card for about 2 loyal years.
Cons: Ball bearings are wearing out and the fan stops from time to time.
Summary: I used the GT430 in my first PC build in January, 2012. It seemed it would handle both my gaming and HTPC requirements, which it has done with ease. It runs quietly at 49C and has never presented any problems.
