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

The GT 430 and the GT 430 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. 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 and the GT 430 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Single Fan OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Single Fan OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition 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 2.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 430, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is marginally better than the GT 430.

Both the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Single Fan OC 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition have 96 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the GT 430 takes the edge.

The GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Single Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition requires 49 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 GT 430. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.
