Good thermal performance, the heat sink works well to keep the heat low

1 agrees

Power efficient, slightly higher power usage than integrated solutions, but performs far better

1 agrees

Simple to setup, just need to plug it in, install the drivers, no additional setup necessary

Not the best performance you can get for the money, AMD/ATI offers better option for gamers

Cooling system works well, but the fan is noisy, no so good for HTPC builds that sits in the living room

The MSi N220GT-MD512 is a lower-end desktop graphics card, based on the NVIDIA GeForce GT 220. The 40nm card supports DirectX 10.1 and an HDMI output. It is almost identical to the N220GT-MD1G, but features 512 MB (not 1 GB) of 810MHz GDDR2 memory. This limitation may prevent satisfactory performance in more demanding games. The core clock runs at 625 MHz, but the card supports overclocking via "Afterburner" and MSi DOT Express technology. Other MSi products based on the GeForce GT 220 offer significantly higher memory and core clock speeds, as does the original NVIDIA product itself. NVIDIA PhysX enables complex in-game physics, while the NVIDIA Lumenex engine and 128-bit HDR support enhanced lighting effects. The card lacks major features available with higher-end graphics cards, however, including support for 3D video or multiple GPUs.
