    GYGABYTE GT 710 video card on MSI MS-7525 motherboard?


    Hey,

    I've asked similar questions before but now I have to know for sure: will the Gygabyte GeForce GT 710 work on the MSI MS-7525 Boston 1.0 motherboard without any issues?
    Also, 270 W PSU.

    Here's my motherboard and all other parts: HP Pavilion Slimline s5130at Desktop PC Product Specifications | HP(R) Customer Support

    The minimum recommended wattage on your PSU for both cards is 300 Watts. I guess in theory it should work the same as the old one but you may want to consider buying a stronger PSU. Also, the card that came with that tower is low profile, so make sure the replacement card is as well.

    Yeah, I'll get the low profile version. The old card though was working but it was always showing a VBIOS error on startup, which I assume was not because of the low PSU because the fan on the card was working. I gotta be 100% that it will work!

    GT 710 20 w
    GT 730 25 w
    So yes, that should work OK. Obviously you need suitable dimensions to fit in the box.
    There should not be a PSU issue as power consumption maybe less than the original.

    Any PCI-e card will work okay with that motherboard. There's nothing to worry about your power supply. I've had the same motherboard and used two cards (GeForce 210 and HD 5450) with 250W with identical specs.

    The fact that the GT 710 is low power you might be better getting a GT 730 Passive heatsink version, they all come with low profile bracket & work silently with out a wine-ing fan for such a low power gpu...

    Also get a MSI GT 730

    So, that one draws less power and it's faster? Also, what about the GT 730 K version of it? Amazon.com: MSI Computer N730K-2GD3H/LP NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 2GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI Low Profile PCI-Express Video Card: Computers & Accessories

    It's not that it's less faster but it should still be sufficient for your system. Avoid any DDR5 version of entry-level GPUs.

    Speaking of GT 710, here's a reason why you shouldn't even try to buy the GT 710.

    Well, the most intense game I'll be playing will probably CS:GO, as long as it runs that on decent fps, I'm fine with it.
    Why avoid any (G)DDR5 versions? My motherboard is too old and doesn't support them?
