MSI readies OCed low profile GT 430

785MHz core for €79
Nvidia is expected to launch its new entry level GF108 core next week and it appears that MSI will offer an overclocked GT 430 on launch day.

MSI’s N430GT-MD1GD3/OC/LP is clocked at 785MHz for the core and it packs 1024MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 2000MHz. Of course, the memory bus is 128-bit and the card features VGA, DVI and HDMI outputs.

As you can see from this embarrassingly low res photo, MSI slapped a non-reference dual fan cooler on this low profile card. It seems like a pretty good HTPC card, provided that the fans don't turn out too noisy.

The asking price is €79, which doesn’t sound like much. Reference boards should sell for about €10 less and AMD’s HD 5670 usually goes for around €70 as well. We’ll just have to wait and see whether the GT 430 can stand up to AMD’s venerable Redwood.
