Its use of the highest quality components, including ASUS Dust-Proof fan, GPU Guard, and Fuse Protection ensures that the ASUS ENGT430 remains stable and reliable for long-term use.

    Makes me wonder why they all stick fans on these cards. I have the passive GeForce 8400GS as backup card and it's awesome. 100% silence and it's not getting all that hot.

    maybe this cards are faster than 8400Gs low profile?

    does any one know if it outperforms a low profile 9800GT?

    why make the pci bracket single slot when the cooler is dual slot :S

    and why not make the whole card single slot in the first place

    Um these cards are way faster over a 8400gs. The bandwidth is higher, the card has DDR3 and the core is around 700 something. The 430 IMO is like a super 9500gt between a 220?

    The 9800gt blows it out of the water.
