Solved eVGA GT630 1GB or ASUS GT630 2GB

January 30, 2013 at 13:51:05
Specs: Windows8 Pro with Media Centre x64, 2.793 GHz / 2047 MB
Deciding on a video card from the 2:

ASUS GT630 2GB
http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/...

EVGA GT630 1GB
http://www.evga.com/Products/Produc...

I am from Pakistan and I have decided on the GT630 and these 2 cards are similarly priced. So please tell me which would be better among the two.

GT630 is the best available card within my budget. I prefer nVidia because I have had really bad experience with AMD/Ati.

✔ Best Answer
Asus has 2GB of DDR3 @1800. (better)

EVGA has 1GB of DDR3 @1600.

The remaining specs are similar. I didn't check to see if both cards have similar ports.

Asus is advertising the capacitors should last 2 1/2 times as long as regular capacitors.

A low end card can't make use of 2GB memory. I suggest you read the following, then consider getting something else, unless low end performance is what you want?

I am looking for a card for movies only and I don't do any gaming. I personally wanted a 3D capable card which I can use with my TV to watch 3D movies. I am going to stick with the 630 and I am going to get ASUS because I have other ASUS products and they are really nice and reliable and I have never had any problems with them.

I would have gotten the GT630 from EliteGroup (ECS) but their cards are no longer available here. I currently have a 9400GT from them which I got 4 years ago I it still works a treat and I don't have any issues.

Anyways thank you everyone for the time.

Thanks alot for the advice.

If you don't do any gaming & the 9400GT works fine, why bother to upgrade at all? You're just wasting your money. If you only have 2GB RAM, that's where you should be spending your money, not on an unnecessary graphics upgrade.

I don't do too much gaming and not at high resolution. I do play games sometimes like Prototype and Call of Duty and I usually play at lower resolutions like 1024*768 which is another monitor I have and I use for this purpose. I don't really care about the resolution because I'm not a regular gamer and play like ones a month or so :).

Your response backs ups what I said - you don't really need a graphics upgrade. You obviously want one, but you don't need one. Nothing you do requires better graphics & the card you chose isn't very good anyway. It's a low-end, entry-level, low-budget card that can't even make use of 2GB memory. You should be spending your money on something you DO need, like more RAM.

"I usually play at lower resolutions like 1024*768 which is another monitor I have and I use for this purpose"

You don't have to change monitors or the monitor's screen resolution for gaming. The resolution setting should be changed in the game settings.

riider, if the OP has an OLD CRT monitor in 15" size I don't think 1024 x 768 is available. That is a 4:3 ratio so the monitor is probably old.
