    I don't know whether 2Gb would offer any practical advantage.

    However, at Newegg, the least expensive 1GB GT710 is about $35US. The least expensive 2GB card is about $43.

    EVGA GeForce GT 710 DirectX 12 01G-P3-2710-KR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Video Card - Newegg.com

    GIGABYTE GeForce GT 710 DirectX 12 GV-N710D3-2GL REV2.0 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Low Profile Video Card - Newegg.com

    (The cards are from eVGA and Gigabyte, respectively. Both are tier 1 manufacturers.)

    I think that a waste of $8 might be acceptable.

    Give some thought to a larger PSU,perhaps 500w minimum.

    It would be totally pointless to put in a 500W power supply in this thing. The whole system barely consumes 300W.

    Here's what I bought earlier tonight:
    Amazon.com: Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 2GB Dual Slot Low Profile GV-N710SL-2GL REV2.0 Graphic Cards: Computers & Accessories
    After the $8- rebate, the price is $31.24. This is the 2GB version which costs an additional $4-. Probably a waist of $4- but I couldn't resist the cheap insurance to keep me from wondering if I shudda got the 2GB version! Also, the recommended PSU for this card is 300W. Mine is an Antec 380W PSU. It'll be here in a week. We'll see how it works out.
