not really sure as i am not gamer but i would recommend that you buy a kick ass card if you are a gamer...and 25 or 30 dollars is not going to give you what you want

both are geforce 210. only difference is the amount of ram. that doesnt make any difference proccessing HD video. for that you need a solid GPU. not necesarily last generation, but powerful enough. which the 210 is not.

for that i would suggest a slightly older but much more robust 9800gt or 8800gt. they should't be too expensive nowadays.

however if you still want something more recent, aim for the GTX variant of whichever card you choose

@bruinator I cant get access to your second link.... But I have been running on a basic GeForce 210-PCIe-1GB DDR3 (Cheap as Chips) for HD video streaming from a Single Core Processor PC through HDMI to 50"" LED TV with no problems... Great quality with live streams & downloaded .flv, avi files played back through Daum Potplayer...

Hope this assists.. :)

works for low resolution video. but if you're thinking 1080p or 3200p (aka 4k) then no.

@VileTouch...In our case I have to disagree mate....The Gigabyte 210 1Gb card that's been stuck in the box for over a year works perfectly for us @ 1080p both for live streams & video file playback..No buffering or quality issues at all.

interesting. i have had very bad experiences with these low end cards, and since the 9800 is such a powerhouse in comparison for a similar price, i really see no reason to recommend anything worse than that.

Geforce 210 is enough for 1080p HD streaming.

Friend use it in his Mediacenter.

If you have issues, then most of the time is the codec of videoplayer that won't use the GPU well.

Use VLC Player or CoreAVC codec that can use the GPU for decoding HD video streams.

Also make shure that you have sufficient cooling in your PC case.

Found this today which I assume is a better card than the other thread. Which of these is better:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150655

or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102882

Both are $20 after rebate.

thx

Hi again @bruinator.... Both the ATI's & GeForce 210 DDR3's 1 gigs should do the 1080p playback job to TV well..

Mentioned the 210's thumbs up in previous thread as I have 4 X on my home network (1 in a media center) + another 10 or so on my corporate network, where our accountants / legal / admin team need use dual screens...

Never had an issue....... :)
