In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon HD 7470A.

The GT 430 has a 10 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 7470A, but the Radeon HD 7470A has 4 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 430. As a result, the Radeon HD 7470A exhibits a 2.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GT 430. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 430 has a 10 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 7470A, but the Radeon HD 7470A has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 430. As a result, the Radeon HD 7470A exhibits a 3.1 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GT 430. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon HD 7470A was released over a year more recently than the GT 430, and so the Radeon HD 7470A is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GT 430.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 7470A have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GT 430 has 19.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 7470A, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is slightly better than the Radeon HD 7470A.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7470A has 400. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7470A is 202. The Radeon HD 7470A having 51 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GT 430 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7470A requires 18 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430. The GT 430 requires 31 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7470A to run. The difference is significant enough that the GT 430 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 7470A.
