The lowest previous price for NEW item (not refurbished as sold by EVGA) is back. $25-$30 below everybody else.

Perfect card for silent HTPC use, especially small case builds that take a low profile card. Passive cooling makes it silent and uses only 30W TDP. Also good for connecting PCs to HD and 4k monitors at 60hz refresh rate.

This is the same one that is often here on FP as recertified B stock from EVGA with 3 mo warranty and no accessories for $50-$60. Buying it new gets you full 3 year warranty on with all accessories including low profile bracket.

Can do x264 and x265 10bit HDR to output 4k@60hz through HDMI 2.0b capable HDMI port.

Gamers except for the most casual ones are not going to be happy with this so don't evaluate for gaming use or thumb it down because it is not for you. Smilie

Available at Best Buy. You can also buy it via Google Express where first time purchase for an account gets additional 20% off.

You're wecome. However, I wouldn't recommend it over the GTX 750ti. The GT 1030 will be slower.

The GTX 750ti is meant to be a gaming card and uses a lot of power with active cooling.

The GT 1030 is a budget desktop, htpc, workstation card with just enough to drive high resolution monitors, tvs. With passive cooling to reduce power consumption and noise.

They are not substitutes of each other.

This GPU is meant for low power and quiet HTPCs just like TC stated. I don't know how he can be clearer than that. If you're looking to game, don't care about noises, and your HTPC can support high power GPUs, by all means, get a real gaming GPU.

this or an used RX 470 on local Facebook/CL?
I believe there was a brand new rx470 4gb on here the other day for $105. Assuming you can get a used one for $70 I would definitely get the rx470, assuming you plan on gaming.

The only benefit GT 1030 has over the GTX 1050 Ti is the HDMI 2.0 support, beside using alot less power ofc. You can output 4K@60hz to your 4K TV. The GTX 750 Ti is a much better card for gaming though.

I've been using this card in a HP SFF that has a 25w limit for the video card, no complaints but the other posters are right about there being better alternatives if you don't have limitations.

Dang it I was about to buy this but I remember someone saying in the EVGA B-Stock thread that Netflix in 4k requires more video ram.

Found this: https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/a...vidia-gpus

Has anyone tried Netflix 4k with one of these?

edit: I decided I'd order it and give it a try anyways. looking forward to finally using 4k 60p on my htpc heh

Good deal on a great card, I am running it on my small form factor i7-6700 PC, and it works great, silent, low power, and does everything I need it to do.

Excellent write-up OP -- repped. Another possible good use for this card is for wanting to game on low end OEM PC with weak power supply and I integrated graphics (although 1050 would be preferred in that case).
