Welcome to the club exclusive for the owners of low end Nvidia cards.Often neglected and cast aside for more powerful cards,these little cards can still be great for a variety of tasks including gaming. I was very sad to see no owners club thread existed for these cute little cards so i took this oppurtunity to make one

I am a proud owner of a Gigabyte GT 730 1gb gddr5 that i bought last week and its a great little card for gaming at below full hd resolutions.

Mods can however delete this thread if they think these cute little cards do not deserve an Owners club thread

Excellent. I am sooooo glad that I found this club. I will be back in a minute (or 30) with some pictures of the awesome EVGA GT 710!!

Edit: I am back ... here is the post I put in my build log. Anything less just doesn't do this mighty card justice ...

The Might EVGA Gt 710 Graphics Card!!

My motherboard does not have integrated graphics. I am undecided on which of the stupidly expensive

graphics cards I am going to get. But ... what good is a new computer if I can't display anything on the screen. In steps Might Joe Black ... sorry ... I mean Might GT710. For all of $30 ... I am now the proud owner of this beast.

Is that picture on the back an indication of the might-ness of the GT710?

NO! This card is even more mighty than that!

He has escaped. Beware ... might GT710 on the loose ...

But wait ... what is that writing in the middle of the fan? He is hampered by a 'remove before use sticker'. No wonder I wasn't getting the performance from Mighty GT710 that I expected. That stupid sticker was holding him back.

Removed!

Back shot just in case anyone needs to measure for a backing plate ...

Installed. And it was a mighty struggle to get him in his final resting place ... let me tell you!!!!!

And here is a wider shot showing the Might GT710 in his full, natural habitat.

My GT 710 has passive cooling, but I think I can stick an old case fan on it. I'll do some benchmarks some time soon. It get 25-50 fps in CS:GO at medium settings and 35-125 fps in TF2 at medium-high settings. Ignore the post I made above this one.
