abunda_amazon_reviews I need a graphic card upgrade for a very old compact desktop PC, Acer Aspire A3910 from 2010. This MSI GeForce GT 710 is an entry-level graphic card that fits my requirements perfectly. Here are several reasons why I picked this card instead of something more powerful: - It is relatively inexpensive. - It is low profile and occupies only one PCI slot. This is important since my PC has a SFF (small form factor) case with limited space. - It consumes very little power (20W max), so even the 220W power supply in my PC can handle it. - It uses only heatsink for passive cooling. This eliminates the noise and reliability problems associated with cooling fans. [Installation Confusion] - Initially right after the graphic card was installed, I can only get a display of 1200x800 from the HDMI port. Nothing from VGA port. - After I installed the MSI VGA Drivers from disc, my monitor can now display 1920x1080 from VGA port, but nothing from HDMI port. The problem could be from my computer's motherboard, since I observed the same behavior with the EVGA GeForce 210 I previously purchased (and returned). Just keep this behavior in mind, in case you cannot see any display right after installing the card. [Graphic Performance] I ran the 3DMARK 'Cloud Gate' benchmark on my PC, both before and after the graphic card upgrade: - With integrated graphic, the overall score is a pathetic 209. - After installing the GT 710, the score jumps up to 3735! (see my uploaded screenshots for details) On the other hand, the GT 710 cannot hold a candle against my better graphic card, the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti . When both cards were tested in a newer desktop PC ( Asus M32CD ), the 750 gives about 4x higher score . Note that the 750 does not fit in my old SFF PC since it is much larger. See my photo uploaded for size comparison between 710 and 750. [Power Consumption] I used the EUM-A1 Power Usage Meter to measure the input power of my computer: - Before the graphic card upgrade, my computer consumes ~50-55W when idle, ~70-75W when running 3DMARK. - After the upgrade to GT 710, my PC consumes the same 50-55W when idle. This means this graphic card has the same standby power as the integrated graphic chip set. - When running 3DMARK or XCOM: Enemy Unknown , my PC now consumes up to 85-90W. That means the graphic card consumes 15-20W when it is running at full speed. After I played XCOM for several hours, the heatsink becomes too hot to touch, but not hot enough to cause a shutdown. In contrast, the EVGA GeForce 210 suffers thermal shudown after just ~10-20 minutes of playing XCOM. This is because the 210 consumes more power (30W vs. 20W) but comes with a smaller heatsink. [Conclusion] The GT 710 works very well in my particular situation. Of cause this is an inexpensive entry-level card, so I cannot expect the same level of performance as my GeForce GTX 750 Ti. But for a very small investment, I'm suddenly able to play many games which were previously unplayable on my old SFF PC.

False advertisements are very misleading when information given to you to get you to buy something, or to come visit their store is designed to confuse you. Those who make and sell products must honestly present their products, services and prices to you. I am a computer gamer and yet I was confused since I didn't understand how video cards work and was lured by the word "Gaming." They could make it clearer to understand that MSI Gaming is the name of the product and not confuse the buyer as being the type of product instead. If I had installed this card into my computer before checking stats it would have been very hard to return. That's what I think is the biggest problem and hope to avoid others from making the same. Be aware and search stats first buying electronics. I learned the hard way.
