  1. It does, but what do you need such a weak graphics card for?
  2. It will, but the GT 710 is insanely weak, the CPU also isn't worth adding anything onto, don't bother buying a GPU, the GT710 is a waste of money anyway.
    Save up $350 for an entry level gaming PC.
  3. no it is not weak for playing games like gta 5 as posted in amazon's comment box by buyers

    You might get 30fps at 720p on lowest settings, because GTA5 is actually very well optimised.

    However much it costs, I guarantee I can find you better performance for the same money

    Edit: what country and how much?

    Oh, yes, it's a weak card. If it were on the GPU hierarchy chart (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gpu-hierarchy,4388.html), it would be very far down.

    Let me break down for your how its hardware compares to the GTX 770 (technically same generation, although it came out a few years earlier), & why nVidia's MSRP was $400 for the GTX 770 vs. $42 for the GT 710:
    • 1/8th the shaders & texture mappers
    • 1/4th the render output units & bus width (64-bit vs. 256-bit)
    • DDR3 instead of GDDR5 VRAM
    • ~ 6% of the memory bandwidth
    • ~11% of the processing power (in terms of single- & double-precision GFLOPS)


    So when a GTX 770 paired with a core i7, using Normal Texture quality, is barely making it past 60 FPS (http://www.techspot.com/review/991-gta-5-pc-benchmarks/page2.html), there's no way you're going to get a playable experience with that GT 710 without dialing everything down, down, down.

    For some products, you can rely on customer reviews. But for computer hardware, customer reviews only tell you if it "works out of the box" or not. For actual performance, you need to go to experts who actually test & benchmark it...or have benchmarked comparable or superior hardware.

    I can tell you right now, my old HD 4400 laptop is miles better than the GT 710 in terms of performance and runs GTA like a slideshow.
    DO NOT get it.
  7. sir plz find it for me
  8. What country are you in

    your intel d945gcnl only supports 2GB which will in itself limit any gaming abilities, you can try to compensate with a better video card, which I would say push the limits and get a use HD5xxx series or better a HD7xxx series. but the GT710 is not meant for gaming.
