- It is relatively inexpensive.
- It is low profile and occupies only one PCI slot. This is important since my PC has a SFF (small form factor) case with limited space.
- It consumes very little power (20W max), so even the 220W power supply in my PC can handle it.
- It uses only heatsink for passive cooling. This eliminates the noise and reliability problems associated with cooling fans.
- Initially right after the graphic card was installed, I can only get a display of 1200x800 from the HDMI port. Nothing from VGA port.
- After I installed the MSI VGA Drivers from disc, my monitor can now display 1920x1080 from VGA port, but nothing from HDMI port.
The problem could be from my computer's motherboard, since I observed the same behavior with the EVGA GeForce 210 I previously purchased (and returned). Just keep this behavior in mind, in case you cannot see any display right after installing the card.
I ran the 3DMARK 'Cloud Gate' benchmark on my PC, both before and after the graphic card upgrade:
- With integrated graphic, the overall score is a pathetic 209.
- After installing the GT 710, the score jumps up to 3735!
(see my uploaded screenshots for details)
On the other hand, the GT 710 cannot hold a candle against my better graphic card, the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti . When both cards were tested in a newer desktop PC ( Asus M32CD ), the 750 gives about 4x higher score . Note that the 750 does not fit in my old SFF PC since it is much larger. See my photo uploaded for size comparison between 710 and 750.
I used the EUM-A1 Power Usage Meter to measure the input power of my computer:
- Before the graphic card upgrade, my computer consumes ~50-55W when idle, ~70-75W when running 3DMARK.
- After the upgrade to GT 710, my PC consumes the same 50-55W when idle. This means this graphic card has the same standby power as the integrated graphic chip set.
- When running 3DMARK or XCOM: Enemy Unknown , my PC now consumes up to 85-90W. That means the graphic card consumes 15-20W when it is running at full speed.
After I played XCOM for several hours, the heatsink becomes too hot to touch, but not hot enough to cause a shutdown. In contrast, the EVGA GeForce 210 suffers thermal shudown after just ~10-20 minutes of playing XCOM. This is because the 210 consumes more power (30W vs. 20W) but comes with a smaller heatsink.
The GT 710 works very well in my particular situation. Of cause this is an inexpensive entry-level card, so I cannot expect the same level of performance as my GeForce GTX 750 Ti. But for a very small investment, I'm suddenly able to play many games which were previously unplayable on my old SFF PC. For that I'm happy.
I own a HP Pavilion 500 PC series computer. I just added 8 GB of ram, and new ethernet card. My computer still needed a video card to play some games that I purchased, but could not use due to the Intel(r) HD Graphics 4400 video card that is integrated into my computer. I then went to Amazon and looked at a MSI Gaming GeForce GT 710 2GB GDRR3 64-bit HDCP Support DirectX 12 OpenGL 4.5 Single Fan Low Profile Graphics Card (GT 710 2GD3 LP) video card.
After buying the video card thinking it was a gaming card I started searching the specs for the MSI Gaming GeForce GT 710 2GB GDRR3 64-bit HDCP Support DirectX 12 OpenGL 4.5 Single Fan Low Profile Graphics Card (GT 710 2GD3 LP) video card and started to find out that the video card wasn't really for gaming as it said on Amazon as per MSI. When I called MSI they simple said that MSI Gaming is the product name. I then advised to buy a better 4GB video card. Bait and Switch maybe ... maybe not I am not sure.
I called Amazon and they directed me to the "seller" who turned out to be MSI Computer Corp. Amazon would not help me understand what the video card actually was.
I called MSI and talked with someone who said that the word Gaming is their company label and is not to say that the video card is a "gaming" card, but that MSI is "MSI Gaming".
The description is very misleading and for someone such as I that does not understand if this "gaming" video card will met my needs or not as "Gaming" at the front of the video cards description was a form of false advertisement for me.
False advertisements are very misleading when information given to you to get you to buy something, or to come visit their store is designed to confuse you. Those who make and sell products must honestly present their products, services and prices to you. I am a computer gamer and yet I was confused since I didn't understand how video cards work and was lured by the word "Gaming." They could make it clearer to understand that MSI Gaming is the name of the product and not confuse the buyer as being the type of product instead. If I had installed this card into my computer before checking stats it would have been very hard to return. That's what I think is the biggest problem and hope to avoid others from making the same.
Be aware and search stats first buying electronics. I learned the hard way.
Top reviews from other countries
Got onto the MSI website, great if you want to buy something. but customer support... if you find it you've got better detective skills than I have.
I then got onto Amazon, very helpful young lady, after some discussion about the missing CD that Amazon couldn't resolve, She connected me to MSI (at their supply offices in China) after even more convoluted discussion the Amazon lady broke into the conversation and suggested that she send a replacement video card and hope that a CD was in this packet.
Replacement arrived, No CD, returned to Amazon.
However, I found some software "Driver Booster" which updated all my drivers and installed the missing drivers for the video card.
My advice It's a good card but buy it from another maker.
When the install started it ran for maybe 20 minutes and I finally stopped it. Despite that, the card appeared to work but was no faster than my motherboard video. So I have removed it and will now work at removing the associated drivers. Lesson learned.
Update - I stupidly didn't learn my lesson and tried again. It continued to be a "gamers only" experience with very poor results. Even the Internet interface, as opposed to the DVD, was nonsense. I'll leave this at 2 stars.
