Nvidia Geforce GT 430, the budget single cooled monster

Sick and tired of adding cooling coils of liquid to your graphics card, don’t want liquid nitrogen around your pets? A graphics card that doesn’t require all that is somewhat of a rarity nowadays, but we doubt the market for quiet, efficient, and decent GPUs is ever going to die. NVIDIA is fleshing out its Fermi family today  the 96 CUDA core-equipped GT 430. Priced just below 4000 INR this one will not require additional cooling

The GT 430 is based on NVIDIA’s GF108 GPU, which like the GT21x GPUs before it, is coming to retail cards last rather than first. It’s already shipping in notebooks and prebuilt HTPCs, It really is a complete card – unlike all of NVIDIA’s other desktop launches which had GPUs with disabled functional units, the GT 430 uses a fully enabled GF108 GPU.

Did we mention this one does full Direct X 11
