I think I've made a mistake.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I bought the 1GB GDDR5 version instead of 2GB GT730. Which is something Overwatch doesn't like since it tends to take up to 2GB Vram when maxed out. Can someone confirm me how Overwatch performs with 1GB GT730? I failed to find any useful info in google and youtube.

GT730 is a super low end card -- regardless of how much vram it has I doubt it will run Overwatch all that well... =/

Well, playing in 720p is what I had in mind. Though I wouldn't agree that GT730 is a "super" low-end. That would be the GT710.

With that 'speed' of card you wouldn't be able to use the extra gb of memory anyway.

GT730 is on low end, even with 2GB on it. The limited 64bit Bus which is same as GT710
The GPU will be out of power before you ever hit the vram cap.

Then, should I sell the card and play on Intel's HD4600 until I get a proper card?

GT730 will run better than HD4600
You just need to turn down settings.

Word of advice, when looking for a gaming GPU think of spending at least $100 on it. Now, if you catch one on sale or used then it could be less, but, most gpu's worth their weight will start around $100+ msrp.

I'd personally sell or return that GT730 and wait until you can get a real GPU that will serve you much better.

I'll finish this thread with good news.

The card worked perfectly with Overwatch at 1366x786 with anti-aliasing off and everything is low except texture and model details set to medium. Never went under 60fps under all circumstance. Overall I'm happy with the performance.

Since returning the item to amazon is gonna cost me a fortune, I decided to keep this card until I can afford a 2K monitor and switch to GTX1060 later this year, thank you very much for the feedback thumb.gif
