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 Nvidia GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition.

The GT 430 has a 160 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GT 220. This results in the GT 430 providing 2.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. 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 160 MHz higher core clock speed than the GT 220, but the GT 220 has 4 more Render Output Units than the GT 430. As a result, the GT 220 exhibits a 1.9 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 GT 220, 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 GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 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 25.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GT 220, which means that the memory performance of the GT 430 is slightly better than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition has 48 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 430 MSI Low Profile Dual Fan OC 1GB Edition has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GT 220 is 60 and the actual shader performance of the GT 430 is 151. The GT 430 having 91 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GT 430 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GT 220.

The GeForce GT 220 v2 Galaxy 1GB Edition requires 58 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 220 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 430. The GT 220 requires 9 Watts more than the GT 430 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GT 220 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GT 430.
