MSI readies OCed low profile GT 430

785MHz core for €79
Nvidia is expected to launch its new entry level GF108 core next week and it appears that MSI will offer an overclocked GT 430 on launch day.

MSI’s N430GT-MD1GD3/OC/LP is clocked at 785MHz for the core and it packs 1024MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 2000MHz. Of course, the memory bus is 128-bit and the card features VGA, DVI and HDMI outputs.

As you can see from this embarrassingly low res photo, MSI slapped a non-reference dual fan cooler on this low profile card. It seems like a pretty good HTPC card, provided that the fans don't turn out too noisy.

The asking price is €79, which doesn’t sound like much. Reference boards should sell for about €10 less and AMD’s HD 5670 usually goes for around €70 as well. We’ll just have to wait and see whether the GT 430 can stand up to AMD’s venerable Redwood.

Why do MSI uses dual fan coolers in low profile cards? And why on earth do such mainstream cards come with 1GB of memory? Can someone explain me? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!

The reason is to fool the consumers because the low end card looks like a high end (1 GB memory plus dual fan cooler is common in high end cards).

They have to start immediately doing OC versions because reference card sucks like GTS450?

Quoting Haberlandt:

it may be a fairly slow card but it is still capable of exceeding 512mb at playable settings in a few games.
