This is a great fanless graphics card at a good price for a PC or HTPC (Home Theatre PC) and basic gaming. I’ve installed one in my HTPC in the living room, and one in my media PC in the office. If you also install an SSD (Solid State Drive), your PC will almost be silent, just the case fans to contend with. The ASUS GeForce GT 610 is a good reliable card backed by the Nvidia reputation. No problems with mine in the last 2-3 years.
– PCI-Express 2,
– Core Clock 810,
– Max Digital Resolution 2560×1600,
– Max VGA Resolution 2048×1536,
– Direct X 11,
– Ports: VGA, DVI-I, HDMI,
– Minimum Power Supply Unit 300w.
Also note, the heat sink is pretty large and will probably hang over other PCI-Express slots, so bear this in mind if you need to use them.
Easy to install, only takes a few minutes even faster if you are currently using the Processor graphics. If you have an existing Nvidia graphics card, first uninstall the drivers in Control Panel > Programs and Features > Select Nvidia and Uninstall. Shut down the PC. To install the new card open your PC case, unscrew your existing graphics bracket/plate, unclip the existing card (if installed) and insert the new one, ensuring it locks in place on your motherboard. Screw in the plate and job done. Reboot and Windows should find and install the new drivers. You’ll also want to get Geforce Experience software if this is not installed with the drivers.
