Asus ENGT240 SILENT/DI/1GD3


$137.00 Released March, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:V-Cool heatsink - no moving parts means silent operation. 1GB of DDR3 memory - enough for most games and professional graphics applications. VGA, DVI and HDMI output - many connectivity options.

The Cons:Dual slot design may not fit in all HTPC cases. DirectX 10.1 only - lacks support for DirectX 11 games.

The Asus ENGT240 SILENT/DI/1GD3 is a silent running mid-range video card. The card should be able to handle most common tasks and casual games. It has a moderately fast processor and a large amount of memory, but the key feature is the "V-Cool Heatsink" which cools the card without the use of a fan.

This makes the card run completely silently, allowing users to take advantage of the HDCP support for home theater PC use.

The processor is a NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 clocked at 550MHz. The 1GB of DDR3 memory runs at 1580MHz with a 128-bit interface, allowing large amounts of data to move back and forth from the processor quickly. There are outputs for standard VGA, DVI-I, and HDMI. This card fits in a standard PCI-E 2.0 slot.
