Asus GeForce GT 1030 2GB OC Graphics Card £54.98 @ Ebuyer

36
Found 10th Dec 2017
Was looking for parts to build a new PC for myself and came across this. The next closest price I could find for the same item was around £9-10 more, and the best price I could find for any GT 1030 2GB was around £61, so I think this might be a good deal for someone.

This is probably not the card you want if you are building a gaming PC, but it might be suitable for very light gaming if you are on a shoe-string budget. Currently out of stock, but available for pre-order, and due in stock on the 14th.

Features:
  • GDDR5 2GB
  • OC Edition
  • NVIDIA G-SYNC Ready
  • HDMI 2.0b and DVI-D

If gaming isn't your thing, isn't the motherboard's onboard graphics likely to suffice?
That's a cheaper option by £54.98.

one thing you have to note is that 99% of motherboards are not able to do 4k60hz or hdr for video playback. This video card would be excellent for something like my server which has a hdmi 1.4 and need a little extra for transcoding

Just managed to pick up "MSI NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 2G LP OC 2Gb GDDR5" for £51 last night, next cheapest I could see for a 1030 card was around £60 so this is a good price.


I was advised to go for the 1050 but power restrictions on my little brothers PC limit him to what he can have.

Is this on par with the old 750ti? Or an even older 6850?

I watched a few Digital Foundry videos where they used this GPU. It could play Doom, all be it with crappy settings, what more do you want?!?

Shame we are so used to paying hundreds for decent cards now. I remember splashing out £70 on a 6600gt which was the sweet spot at the time (equiv to today’s 1060/RX580 and that was far more than I had ever spent on a graphics card before then.

Your right I can only do 1440p or 4k @ 30htz with onboard

No this isn't a GTX card, and it has fewer Cuda cores anyway

Unfortunately the GTX750TI seems to be nearly double the price.
Slightly worse than a 750Ti but much better temperatures (about 10c) and more energy efficient (30W vs 60W).

from what I've seem 750ti is a fair bit better and can be had for around £50-60 on ebay, albeit second hand.
Not a bad card. Bought a low profile one to go in an old i5 HP office computer. Plays lots of games on low-medium settings no problem.
I can sell you my palit storm x 750ti 2gb if you want. But it is taking 75w from pci.

I think your memory may be a little off. The 6600GT was a £150 card at launch, which is around £210 in today's money. Things haven't changed too badly, especially considering how weak the £ has been since the Brexit vote.
It's amazing how it can give the GTX 750 Ti a run for its money. I paid £90 for the EVGA GTX 750 Ti SC edition on Amazon back in Jan 2016, in comparison to the regular price of £65 for the 1030 is just about fair and at £55 is even better, so this is nice deal I think.
I want hdmi 2 as I want a 4k monitor running at 60hz but my 4 year old gtx 660 still kicks this into the gutter looking at "vs" tests.

Picked it up on Amazon, doesn't look like there's any more unfortunately.

It's about 60% the speed of a 750Ti.

Incorrect. The 750Ti is nearly double the performance.
750ti is way overpriced now, it used to be a good budget option but you can get a 1050ti for almost the same price which is way faster and doesn't draw power directly from the PSU.

Last time I checked this card doesn't support h.265 hardware decoding. Is this still the case ?
Would you not be better off getting a second hand 660 or so?

I must have got a good deal then. It wasn’t launch, but was in its 1st year.
These cards are no good with 4k 4:2:2 feeds (at least for me anyway)

Bear in mind thats paired with a G3258

Currently watching Barca 4:2:2 feed with hardware acceleration off

Depends on the requirements - older hardware doesn't support some newer features people might want. Also fairly sure the GTX 660 eats a lot more power than either of the cards people have been discussing here. If people want to look at second-hand there's loads of cards available that will be very powerful for the money.
