In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia Quadro FX 1800.

The Quadro FX 1800 was released less than a year after the GT 430, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GT 430 has 256 MB more video memory than the Quadro FX 1800, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Quadro FX 1800 has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 430, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1800 is marginally better than the GT 430.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 1800 has 64. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 1800 is 35. The GT 430 having 116 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 430 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Quadro FX 1800.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 1800 requires 59 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Quadro FX 1800. The Quadro FX 1800 requires 10 Watts more than the GT 430 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Quadro FX 1800 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 430.
