You know that is a multimedia card and not a gaming card right? Not trying to be elite or anything but unless you're playing really old games its not going to do much.

you dont have any idea what you are talking about, do you? I have one on my secondary PC and it plays games just fine, even newer games too.

will it play games? yes. was it designed for gaming, not really. It's a multimedia card designed for video playback. It's two rungs below the lowest level gaming card which is traditionally the __50 model in Nvidia's lineup.

Just because its low-end doesn't mean its not designed for gaming. You dont need dedicated graphics card just for "multimedia" or playing netflix.


Already asked what a "multimedia card" is supposed to be, dude doesn't know, just seems to be in love with the term for some reason lmao

@Blitz_kid_ A few things.

A GT1030 is around the performance a 750ti, a 660ti, a RX 550, the 2200G's APU, the XB1, and the PS4. It'll handle most modern "gen 8" games fine (similar performance to PS4 aka 30FPS give or take) at 1080p or lower with a mixture of medium and low settings. Just don't expect to do 1080p, 60fps, ultra. You may be able to do this with gen 7 games but that's not an option for gen 8 games while using a GT1030.

With that said, in order for it to work, there are other things that come into play, such as how much RAM you have and the type of CPU you have. If you don't know these specs or how to find them, you can find them in System Information in the System Summary (first thing selected in it). If you have Windows 10, your CPU is under "Processor" and your RAM is under "Installed Physical Memory". While you can get away with 4GB of RAM for some games, you'll want at least 8GB of RAM for half of the games released within the past 5 years and for a CPU, while you can get away with a 2 core, 4 threaded CPU for about half of modern games, at least 4 cores is pretty much a requirement in 2018 for gaming.

Lastly, can you link the exact GT1030 you purchased? I'm curious to see the specs of it and know more about its performance and its power draw. How much power is also really important for doing any PC upgrading. According to the video I linked in, your PC has a 240 watt PSU (though you won't know for sure until you open your computer and check) so hopefully your card doesn't draw too much power. I mean, you did say it was low profile so it shouldn't take up too much but you also don't have much room to work with either. Just a fyi, according to Nvidia, the GT 1030 DDR5 model takes up 30W and they recommend a 300 Watt PSU. If you're PSU doesn't meet the recommended wattage, you may be fine early on but over time you may start running into issues, so, if you intend on keeping that PC, you may want to invest in 80 Plus Bronze or better 300 Watt PSU if your PSU is upgradable.

Spec wise, you should be fine. I see quite a few builds using similar specs running a variety of games. Just keep in mind what I said about the PSU.
