MSi N210-MD512H


$49.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Runs silently - no fan, just a big heat sink. Runs fairly cool, just needs a well ventilated case. Runs games fairly efficiently, can handle medium settings at a high frame rate.

The Cons:Massive heat sink takes up a fair amount of space, likely taking up two slots depending on your motherboard layout. Can't handle high-end settings in video games. Not appropriate for professional 3D rendering duties, too slow.

The MSi N210-MD512H is a basic video card for people who need to take some load off of their main CPU for graphic processing, or who want to use their computer to play a lot of video. While in most respects it is the same card as the VN210-MD512, a silent cooling system and HDCP support have been added to make this a low-cost solution for home theaters.

Where to Buy

The processor is a 589MHz NVidia GeForce 210, which is supported by 512MB of DDR2 memory. The memory itself is clocked at 800MHz and uses a 64-bit interface to exchange data with the processor. The card uses a basic PCI-E 2.0 slot, and outputs in VGA, DVI-I, and HDMI. While it can manage resolutions of up to 2560x1600, expect a major performance slow-down at this level of detail. Both DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.1 are supported.
