Summary: NVIDIA's GeForce GT 430 GPU is here to rock the sub-$100 video card market! Does this new Fermi GPU offer a substantial upgrade over the GeForce GT 220, which it aims to replace? Can it compete with the long-entrenched Radeon HD 5000 series? In our look at the Galaxy GeForce GT 430 we will find out.
Excerpt: The world of budget graphics cards isn't sexy, but it is incredibly important to all players involved. NVIDIA and AMD have made a lot of money on these sub-$100 graphics cards as the years have gone on but now the threat of CPU/GPU hybrids is putting the segment on a death watch. That future is probably a year or more out so for now the competition between the two primary discrete GPU manufacturers is crucial.
