As long as you have room in the case it should be fine, the ASUS P6T boards support PCI Express x16 which will be enough for this card. -MR

Really nice GPU, great for general use and ideal for HTPCs. Although I decided to slap it in a PC as a 3070 replacement until i was able to buy one it definitely served me well as a capable 720p GPU for lesser demanding games. I may use this as a HTPC GPU sometime in the future as it doesn't even need a power connector (threw me off at first). May the 1030 live long. Also I was able to get a desktop and benchmark stable 245mhz CORE and 1000mhz memory OC, however non-demanding games like CSGO (170-300 FPS on 720p) tended to freeze, although overclocking a GPU like this wont give you noticable results.

About as basic as you can get, however for the price in current year, I cannot complain. Good for new ryzen builds whilst awaiting a more competant card

Good Card. Runs my 2 * 27inch 4k screens fine.

the passive cooler (read: no fan) was a bit of a shock and the temps seem to be a bit high even though the games I'm playing (FM21, CK3) aren't that intensive. but for the price (i paid less than 70) and availability in the current market, i'm not complaining too much. this would work great for a less gaming centred station

Good entry level graphics card. Can get very hot though, so now wondering if the fan version would have been better than this silent version. Overall though pleased with the card considering the price of it.

It is an incredible piece of technology that allows you to connect two 4k @ 60 Hz monitors at one time without loosing any performance on them.

Needed a low power gmu for my dell optiplex 790 dt, had to be low profile so this fit the bill. Installing it should have been easy, but to change the fixing bracket 2 of the screws which fix the bracket to the board are partially obscured by the heatsink and removing them was difficult without having to remove the heatsink, which I did not want to do. Also this is not highlighted in the blurb. I tried to register the purchase on the MSI website, but this was a nightmare to do they wanted a copy of the invoice from CCL which I did not have. Tried a few times gave up in the end, Covid restrictions mean it is difficult to get meaningful contact with many suppliers.

Great product, good for low end sff tower. Be prepared to take off the heat sink to attach the low profile bracket.

It's a brilliant little card, the small form factor design means it can fit in any case, and it has a heat sink so the cooling solution is effective yet silent. Definitely recommend for people who need a graphics card with enough performance for e-sport ready games.

Perfect for gaming on a budget. Can run gta v at 1080p, 50+ fps. Can even run the resident evil remakes at 30+ fps, also 1080p. Pair with a cheap quad core for best results. Excellent value for money.

MSI GT 1030 2GH LP OC version has faster GDDR5 memory, 1x HDMI version 2.0b, 1x DisplayPort version 1.4, max resolution is 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz, low profile design and low power consumption up to 30W. It can be installed on a pc with 300W psu. There is no need to replace the power supply with a more powerful one. Power supply comes from mobo (no 6pin power socket). PSU with 6pin cable is not required. My older computer has HDMI v1.4 and max resolution 1920x1080 so I needed a graphics card to connect pc to my new 4K tv. I did not want to add another source of noise, another fan, so I chose passive cooling. I think I found a card with the biggest heatsink in low profile version plus renowned brand. I'm happy with this card I would buy it again. It revived my pc allows me to watch 4k videos without stuttering. Overall experience of using windows is better as well. The most important thing it saves my eyes. Scaled 1080p picture is still not that crisp like native 4k resolution.

Really good product, really worth the money. It is the best in this range of price.
