MSI Announces New Low-Profile GeForce GT 220 Graphics Card

MSI slipped in a new entry-level graphics card based on the NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 graphics processor. The card sports a low-profile, single-slot design, and makes use of a tiny active air-cooler. Based on the 40 nm GT216 GPU, the GeForce GT 220 has 48 CUDA cores, and is DirectX 10.1 compliant. MSI's implementation uses 512 MB of DDR3 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface. The GPU is clocked at 625 MHz, shaders at 1360 MHz, and memory at 980 MHz. Outputs include DVI, D-Sub (detachable), and HDMI. A low-profile bracket kit is bundled. Expect MSI's new low-profile GT 220 card to cost on par with most other GT 220 graphics cards in the market.

I had a gt220 a while back, and it was ok for light gaming and whatever else. But MSI should of release a OC edition of the GT240 with gddr5 memory and 2 or 1gb.

why the GT240 is a cheap POS card its about as useful as the 8500GT. it will cost the same as a GTS250 or 9800GT both of which are better cards
