Flash forward to the present, and the price on the GT 430 cards is dropping...dropping...dropping. As they move farther away from the $100 mark and closer to the $50 mark, the cards have shaped up into one heck of a nice deal. I love mine. In fact, I would marry mine if the state I lived in somehow allowed it. We would live in a log cabin together and sell crafts to tourists. Just me and the GT 430 against the world. No worries, no regrets. I...I love you, GT 430. Let's never fight.
- It laughs at your 1080p HD videos. Laughs at them, pushes them down, and takes their lunch money. The card has enough horsepower to play back some kind of crazy, as-yet-undiscovered 5000p video stream, let alone whatever weak 1080p kung fu you'd like to throw at it. Your media center is going to be future-proofed for quite some time. I put this card in a 780G-based motherboard with onboard ATI HD 3200 graphics--considered some of the best onboard graphics available just a few years back--and the GT 430 just destroys it. Sure, discrete graphics solutions are generally going to be faster than onboard video, this is well-known, but the difference was night and day.Read more ›
This is a very impressive graphics card for the price here. Although, I expected a bigger boost in performance in my computer. I was mislead into thinking that the GPU would affect how fast I can edit photos and what not, but this is not so. I got this so my computer could be faster in things like Corel Painter Sketch Pad and Corel Videostudio Pro X3. This is a little bit faster than my old ATI Radeon 3200 on-board graphics. These applications are more CPU intensive though. I did not know this when I bought the card and so I was a little unimpressed with how fast it was. This card is definitely made for gaming. I'm not a huge gamer, but I might get into it. The reason why I like it so much and have kept it is because it is virtually future-proof. It is 3D ready and is very good for gaming. It will definitely help me in the future if I want to do these things.
This is a high quality card. It runs on very low power (I run it on a stock 300 watt power supply). It still plays nice with my system. You can drive nearly every monitor out there with three outputs. It is very compact, it could fit in every mini-tower or tower on the market. Using the EVGA Precision software I could monitor the temperature and it ran at an average of around 30 degrees Celsius, which is like ice-cold for graphics cards. It produces very high-quality picture and I am very impressed with it. I recommend not using the drivers that come on the EVGA disc. Just go on the nVidia website and get the latest one. The control center is very helpful, I recommend spending some time with it. This is a great card made by a great company.Read more ›
The Evga GeForce GT 430 works great with the CRPG games I play. Examples of these games are the Medieval series, Oblivion, The Witcher, etc. I have not tried it on any of the new games that require higher end video cards.
You might be wondering why I wrote "but beware." I will explain.
- Nvidia's website clearly show the card needs at least 300 watts to run properly (recommended).
- However, none of the websites I visited (Nvidia included)looking for information and/or reviews regarding this video card offered you what I consider a critical piece of information about the card.
- When I received the card, and before I opened the box, I decided to read every bit of information to make sure my computer and the card are compatible.
- Sure enough, I found the one piece of information none of the websites I looked at included.
- The Evga GeForce GT 430 needs at least 22 amps per 12-volt rail.
- I got lucky because after opening my computer, looking at information on the power source, and surfing the net for formulas to find out the amps for my computer, I found that my computer has or produces exactly 22 amps per 12-volt rail.
Summary: Very nice, little but powerful, card. Not the top of the line as far as power is concerned, but good enough for the common gamer who owns a non-gaming computer.
P.S. - Thanks to Amazon for letting me return the card I ordered before this one (Evga GeForce GTS 450). Great customer support!

DO NOT BUY! Will break after three months and they will jack your warranty and not help. Stay away!Published 9 months ago by Pozee
I bought two of these new a few years ago, and they have run JUST FINE forever. I recently had the fan die on one, and went to replace it with another GT 430, same OEM (EVGA). Read morePublished 10 months ago by Justin A. Parr
