Geforce 210 card, what can it do?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I've got a GeForce 210 Card lying around here, that is supposed to go into an HTPC build of mine. Except, it will be sometime, until I purchase the case, I'm very picky about the case. So, until then, could I use this card along with my GTX 285?

The box states it supports PhysX. Would I be able to make use of this card in a game such as Grid?

It only has 16 CUDA cores, so I'm gonna say that it would be useless for PhysX, or anything else for that matter haha.

It's about the equivalent of a 9400GT.

So... Not really worthwhile.

I'd go for the Passive Cooling GT 240 if you're building an HTPC. This thing looks awesome. It also comes for 3D glasses for Nvidia 3D games, videos, whatnot.

I was able to surf in CS with mine, and I believe I tried CS:S with some decent results. But aren't source games more CPU intensive? If I get my 15 dollar rebate in the future then 20 dollars for it really ain't a bad deal for a GPU to hang on to in case a disaster occurs with my GTX 260. If I don't get my rebate than 35 is pushing it, but I'm holding out hope they just take awhile.

The card sucks and can't do much.
