The Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 may be low-powered but should be able to handle most games like DoTA 2Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and all other titles that doesn’t need that much graphics power to run. Most of these games can be found online and are considered e-sport games. E-Sport games usually don’t need high-end graphics to be playable and most often runs perfectly fine with built-in graphics chips.

As an example for this, we have one of the first Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 series cards courtesy of MSI. the GPU unit has comes with a base clock of 1265 MHz with maxed out clock speed at 1518 MHz. It supports the latest DirectX 12 and comes with 2GB of video RAM packed in a low-profile package, something a great deal for small units. As for its ports, the new graphics card has two ports available with 1x HDMI and 1x DisplayPort.

If you want to play games on your PC that doesn’t really demand high-end graphics hardware but want to experience more than what your built-in graphics could deliver, the new Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 should be on your list and with a less than $70 price tag, it’s already a bang for the buck GPU and is even more affordable than AMD’s Radeon’s RX 550 which is currently priced at $79.99.
