With the introduction of the GT220s a few weeks ago, the GT220 was a great video card for HTPCs and other systems that were able to play all the new video games on lower settings. But, for some the GT220 might not just cut it due to their higher gaming settings and other reasons. This is why nVidia came out with the new GT240 line-up of video cards to filfill the needs of those that don't need extreme settings in video games but want to get decent amount of performance on higher settings. ASUS sent us their ENGT240 512MB GDDR5 video card to test out on our testbench.
The ASUS ENGT240 512MB GDDR5 video card runs in a very affordable price at $99 on Newegg. In our opinion it is a great card for mainstream gaming PCs. The ENGT240 is a very quiet, small, and power efficient mainstream card that won't be a dissapointment to HTPC users and mild gamers. This video card also comes very handy for those looking forward for some PhysX action. You might have a powerful card that renders yoru games but by having one of these little beast in your system as a dedicated PhysX card, it could bring up your framerates tremendously.
