The MSi N240GT-MD1G/D5 is a mid-grade video card for gamers and home theater enthusiasts. This model is similar to the N240GT-MD512 OC/D5, and features a redesigned fan to conduct airflow better as well as an increase in the amount of memory. This leaves us with a card that runs reasonably fast and has plenty of fast memory to work with.
The processor is a 550MHz NVidia GeForce 240, which works with 1GB of DDR5 memory. The memory clock is set at 3600MHz and uses a 128-bit data transfer. A PCI-E 2.0 slot is required, and outputs for VGA, DVI-I, and HDMI are all available. A 2560x1600 resolution is supported, although some decrease in performance should be expected at top resolutions. Both DirectX 10.1 and OpenGL 3.1 are supported. This card has HDCP support, and will play Blu-ray video smoothly.
