Reviews and Problems with Zotac GeForce GT 430 1GB

Best you can still find for the PCI slot
21 February 2014
Summary: Nice item for making an old PC with AGP or PCI capable for HD playback, Blu-ray 3D, and streaming HD-audio over HDMI. This is the best solution for PCI. More powerful (96 vs 48 CC) than the GT 520 and GT 610 pci cards that have been sold by Zotac and others since this card was available in retail. But this card is becoming rare now a days. Get it while you can. The performance of the card honestly depends on the CPU you pair with.
Summary: Works for what I bought it for! PCI slot support with Aero effects, directx 11 and multimonitor support. Plug and Play with my older Dell Dimension 3000 running Windows 7 SP1. If you're looking to play newer games at high settings, don't bother with this. You're going to need a newer generation PCI express motherboard and a good AMD or Nvidia Graphics Card.
Summary: Needed this card for now until my next build.... This card performs very well at low temps and is a great accessory to an older machine. My specs: Windows XP Pro 64bit Intel Dual Core Duo 4GB Vengence Ram 480w PSU GT430 I have played many games like the 18 Wheels Of Steel series on high settings with fully anti aliasing. This card does not break a sweat, operating at temperatures around 30-45 degrees.
Summary: I had an internal TV card with 4 Tuners in my PC and there wasn't enough room for a PCI-E graphics card, so, because this card has HDMI, I thought I would try this card in one of the PCI slots. The graphics were not acceptable, so I removed the TV Tuner, installed a "HIS Radeon HD 6670 1GB" PCI-E card and moved to two USB TV Tuners. Perfect. Great picture on my 60" HDTV when watching HD TV channels.
Summary: I was hoping to update and breathe a little life into an old P4 computer before handing it over to the kiddos. Originally the PC only had 512MB of memory and the original onboard video card. The PC was unbearably slow, almost to the point that it was unusable. After adding the Zotac video card and upgrading the RAM to 2GB this little PC smokes, for it's age and OS. Cannot say enough about this card. If you are looking to update an old PC this might be your ticket!
Summary: This review is merely a comparison between this card and the Sapphire Radeon HD6670 Ultimate 1GB DDR5 DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card 100326UL on the fan noise and 3rd monitor support. The fan on my AMD Radeon HD 6870 graphics card has developed a high pitched whine noise. Before I could send it in for repair, I needed an emergency backup card so I bought this. The GT430 worked but had two major problems: 1.
Summary: I originally ordered this for a low-end gaming computer for my girlfriend. Price was great and I was on a tight budget, so this card seemed like it would do the fix until I could buy her a better graphics card and I was going to use the card on my PC for a second monitor in the future. That was until I ran into a problem. Windows 7 (64-bit) will not detect this card in the PCI slot, not sure about 32-bit.
