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 600.

The GT 430 was released less than a year after the Quadro 600, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition and the Quadro 600 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 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Quadro 600, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is marginally better than the Quadro 600.

Both the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition and the Quadro 600 have 96 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GT 430 is 151 and by the Quadro 600 is 61. Knowing that the shader performance of the GT 430 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the Quadro 600 requires 40 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Quadro 600. The GT 430 requires 9 Watts more than the Quadro 600 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 430 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Quadro 600.
