ASUS ENGT430 GeForce GT 430 1GB DDR3 Video Card Review

NVIDIA has been slowly trickling out GeForce 400 series graphics cards since April 2010 when the company first launched the GeForce GTX 480. Today, NVIDIA is releasing another new DX11 graphics card, but this time around it is an entry level card with an MSRP of just $79.99.

We couldn’t leave the store empty handed, so we bought the card for $299.99 and headed back to see what it was all about.
