BFG Geforce 7300GT OC

I need to get off the onboard video and the BFG Geforce 7300GT PCI-E card is in my price range. I know it is not top of the line but its gotta be better than the intel gma 900 onboard. I want to just play Doom 3, flatout 2, and GTA San Andreas. I am not a heavy gamer just like to play when I get a chance. My computer specs are in my signature. I would like to know if you can tell me if there any problems with this card or if you have a better suggestion in the price range of sub $100.

Any help would be appriciated.... thanks in advance.

Also, I am replacing the power supply with an antec 400W that has the necessary amps on the 12v rail, which is why my budget is tight.

  1. The 7300GT is a nice budget card. The Galaxy and Palet brands each have a killer overclocking model.

    But prices on higher end cards are coming down. If you don't mind a rebate, the X850XT would spank the 7300GT and is under $100 AR:

    This card is an equal or better performer compared to the 7600GT and X1800GTO.
  2. Looks like a great card one question though in the system requirements it needs a peak dissipation of 75W what ever that is. I cant find that info on the power supplies to see.
  3. the 7300gt is comparable to a 6600gt
  4. Iv'e got a 300 watt psu also with only 19amps on the 12v rail. I'm running a BFG 7300GS 256mb because it calls for 18 amps, the GT version has got to be about 20amps. Make sure you know your 12v rail.
  5. a 7300gt wont use 18A, its just recommended to be on the safe side.
  6. Dont go for ANY 7300 GT 512RAM sounds nice but it only has a 64 bit. So you will get some serious bottleneck issues. If your willing to spend 150+ you can get a great 7600GT which will run any game good and is a current favorite of most gamers and even tom's hardware gives the 7600GT its highest praise.

    But if your must stay under 100$ a 6600GT is also great heres a PNY for only 77$ http://h30094.www3.hp.com/product.asp?sku=2596067&jumpid=ex_r2910_pricegrabbersmb/
  7. In the specs the 7300GT 256MB is supposed to have 128-bit. The other ones in that series(7900GS for example) only have 64bit from what I have been reading.

    I know what you are saying it would probally be a bottle neck.

    no its not. the 6600gt is a much faster card. also very clockable. the 6100 and the 7300 are only really good for 2d work. any res above 800x600 it suffers.

    look at the clock speed tho. core clock is 350. the 6600gt is 500. big difference.
