GT 240 DDR3 Vs GT 430

I need to know the difference between these 2 Cards. Can someone help me please...

MSI VN240GT-MD1G - http://www.msi.com/product/vga/VN240GT-MD1G-.html
ASUS ENGT430/DI/1GD3(LP) - http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=oFWUy4OBqyNgtdmZ&templete=2

Which card can give the best performance to play games in a low resolution with high settings ?

  1. The 240 is a bit more powerful, but it is older technology.

    What is your budget? We might be able to find you something better.
  2. out of those two the gt 240, but like Helltech said give us your full system specs and your monitors resolution and budget, then we can suggest the best bang for your buck that your system and budget can handle..
  3. There is also a GT440 that is about 18% faster than the GT430. The GT240 is faster, but is only DirectX 10, where the 430/440 are DirectX 11.

  4. I just don't understand why someone would want dx11 for that performance level...
    how about a 5670, its dx11 and faster then the gt 240...!?
  5. do NOT buy the gt 430, it is slow and overpriced.

    you got very good cpu. you should get something better. maybe you should get bigger monitor as well :p . save your money and go for something better. what is your current card?
  9. Wow, the GT 240's are as low as $35 after rebate on Newegg, $65 before rebate. The GT430/440 and GT 250 are all under $100. In order to get a GTS450, which is actually a decent card, you would have to go as high as $100 after rebate.

    What exactly is your budget?
  10. The GT 240 is about $112 in our country. Thats why i'm going to buy it.
    I'm buying a new PC so i'm planning to get this Card
  11. Best answer
    If you're going to watch a lot of videos in full HD: ASUS ENGT430/DI/1GD3(LP)

    If you're not, or you're going to play a lot more games: MSI VN240GT-MD1G

    THe Asus card is a little more robust in it's video ability, but the MSI card is definitely a better gaming card.
  12. Thank You i'll go for the GT 240.
    Thank You for everything
