In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 4650 1GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition.

The GT 430 has a 185 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 4650, but the HD 4650 has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GT 430. As a result, the HD 4650 exhibits a 6.6 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 185 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 4650, but the HD 4650 has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 430. As a result, the HD 4650 exhibits a 1.7 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 GT 430 was released over a year more recently than the HD 4650, and so the GT 430 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 4650.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition and the Radeon HD 4650 1GB 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 9.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 4650, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is marginally better than the HD 4650.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4650 1GB has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151 and the actual shader performance of the HD 4650 is 134. The GT 430 having 17 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 HD 4650.

The GT 430 transistor size technology is 15 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 4650. This means that the GT 430 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 4650. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the GT 430 should consume less power than the HD 4650.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 4650 1GB requires 48 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 4650. The GT 430 requires 1 Watts more than the HD 4650 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 HD 4650.
