Released April, 2010
The Pros:Low profile design fits well into crowded cases. Good price for any video card of this quality (can be purchased now for far less than the MSRP). Generally stays cool during normal operation.
The Cons:Doesn't have the power of higher-end video cards, need to scale the settings in most games back a little bit.
The MSi N220GT-MD1GL/D3 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 differs from the N220GT-MD1G mainly in a higher memory clock speed of 1580 MHz, retaining support for overclocking via "Afterburner" and MSi DOT Express technology.

Like the MD1G, it offers 1 GB of memory and a 625MHz core clock speed. 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 multi-GPU setups.

don't normally hear the fan at all
doesn't need much power to run, will work with smaller PSUs
drivers and utilities are well designed and offer a good range of options
outputs clean and sharp HD video without missing any frames
fairly slim design, doesn't interfere with the next slot over
doesn't have the power of higher-end video cards, need to scale the settings in most games back a little bit
