MSi N220GT-MD1G


$70.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Excellent media capabilities, can upscale DVDs to 1080p and delivers 5.1 audio over HDMI without hassle. Low end card, but with a good overclock margin, MSI's OC utility is useful. Relatively good performance for the price, based on a GPU core with strong performance.

The Cons:No fan control, users cannot adjust fan speed at all, which contributes to the fan noise issue. Capable cooling, but the fan can be noisy during load.

The MSi N220GT-MD1G is a lower-end desktop graphics card, based on the NVIDIA GeForce GT 220. The 40nm card supports DirectX 10.1 and an HDMI output. It features 1 GB of 810MHz GDDR2 memory and a core clock speed of 625 MHz, but supports overclocking via "Afterburner" and MSi DOT Express technology.

Other MSi products based on the GeForce GT 220 offer significantly higher memory and core clock speeds, as does the original NVIDIA product itself. NVIDIA PhysX enables complex in-game physics, while the NVIDIA Lumenex engine and 128-bit HDR support enhanced lighting effects. The card lacks major features available with higher-end graphics cards, however, including support for 3D video or multiple GPUs.
