Excellent GPU for moderate price

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. This card runs with processor I5 2500 on a Gigabyte Z68AP D3 board and has a WEI of 6.7 on Win 7. If you need a good GPU at a modest price for multiple purposes, the GT430 would be an excellent buy.
Summary: My 5+ year old HP Media Center desktop was crashing every time I opened photos or videos. Friends advised me to toss it saying it was past it's life, but I really like the computer so I did some research on line and learned a a lot about video and graphics cards and how in many cases heat destroys the card...hence the fan on the card itself. This GT 430 card was suggested as a replacement for the card in my HP, discontinued long ago.
Summary: Worked great right out of the box without difficulties. Loaded drivers, connected LED (Panasonic ) and rebooted. I bought this primarily to play movies and to get the sound into my Bose system. This is in an IBM "A" series SFF desktop. Have not noticed any extreme heat build up.
Summary: So far, so good. I am someone who works from home a lot and recently became acquainted with the convenience of working with dual monitors. My emachines EL1850G-42w has only one vga connection so I purchased the GeForce GT430 and installed it in one of the expansion slots/bays. Super easy to do . . . the hardest part was removing the slot cover for the bay on my computer. It is working well with two Dell monitors (19" and 17").
