This review is centered around a very specific use-case, so it's not so much a product review as it is a confirmation that it'll work for a particular purpose. Just thought I'd share in case someone else might be in a similar situation... I bought this specifically to install in my old 2012 Dell PowerEdge T310, which runs Frigate, so that i could have hardware-accelerated H.264 decoding. I wanted something that was low power, as the PowerEdge servers don't supply more than 25W to the PCIe ports. The GT 710 is so old that it's not even listed on Nvidia's "Video Encode and Decode GPU Support Matrix" -- lots of forums talk about this and people say that since it's not on the list, it doesn't support NVDEC. Well, it does work. Just install the version 470 drivers (not the latest) -- for Ubuntu, it's "nvidia-headless-470-server" and "libnvidia-decode-470-server" packages. Anyway, these cards are probably too old to be truly useful in a desktop these days, but perfect for a headless system to offload video decoding for something like Frigate.

I got this thing on sale many months ago (June 2019) and paid 8 dollars total for it. This was back when Amazon did a promo that involved using the mobile app for the first time. When you did you got 10 dollars off your next order. With that out of the way... (Please note all reports below have this GPU, an Intel I5-2400 @ 3.10ghz CPU and 8GB of RAM. Your results will vary unless you have my exact setup!) Yeah this runs all the games I want it to run. Please set expectations low as this is an old card. Remember no game out there released after 2012 will hit 60+ FPS consistantly on this thing. This is absolutely perfect for my use. I have included some reports below so you can gague how it might work for you: Apex Legends: Runs below average. I had to run in 720 resolution fullscreen with all graphics turned down to min. Framerate averaged at 15, lowest 10. Fortnite: Average by my standards. Same graphics settings as Apex (720 resolution, graphics turned down to min). 17 FPS average, lowest 15. Kerbal Space Program: This one surprised me. I'm unsure resolution but it seems windowed mode 800*600 (whatever default is) but you can ALT+ENTER to make it fullscreen. Average framerate during normal play was 40 FPS, while exploding or operating a huge vessel with alot of parts it got as low as 5 FPS. Don't go crazy and you're fine. (NOTE: this was without any graphical mods EXCEPT "realplume") Paladins: Flawless running! I actually ran a match without changing anything in graphics and got 60+ FPS with a less-than-occasionalll dip to high 40 FPS. Checked it afterward and everything was maxed out at my native resolution (1680*1050 16:10). I was pleasently surprised Rocket League: This one is tough for me. This game is the whole reason I bought this card. All graphical settings set to "performance" and transparent goalposts set to on it gets 20-35 FPS. Not ideal at all for an action game such as this. Running fullscreen at 800*600 helps a bit but not alot. Runescape (NX client): Let's be honest, who plays RuneScape current-day anymore? Well I did to benchmark it. Graphics maxed out got me 4 FPS, just like 2004 did for me. I got used to it back then so I accepted that for this game. With graphics relaxed a bit I got 20 FPS average across various parts of the F2P map. Runescape (old school): This is what I've been playing the most the past couple of days so this data is fresh in my mind. You can't change the graphics much so there's only pure FPS to talk about: 60+ FPS all the way around here. It's expected for a graphics engine from 2007. Sid Meier's Civilation 5 (Directx9): I have the Steam version so it launches in either DX9 or DX10/11. DX9 version runs just fine at 30 FPS with maxed out graphics. Sid Meier's Civilation 5 (Directx10/11): Man this version of the game just feels smoother, even though nothing is different except animations. Still 30-50 FPS but it just feels better for some reason. Subnautica: Smooth as silk for the most part. Minus any effects emitted from the world (giant gun or Aurora's reactor anyone?) I have never hit framerates below 20. Audio seemed desynced from world events such as those named above but that may have just been a result of my pausing the game right as it started both times. Valorant: Not my best experience but definately not my worst. Graphics turned down to minimum and resolution down to 720 it ran. Notice I didn't say it ran "ok". It was playable at 10 FPS but my lack of skill in games like this is no excuse for performance. Warframe: Turn the graphics down a bit and you have a good experience. Using the classic graphics and a turned-down resolution gets me 25-60 FPS depending on what's going on. Missions run 25-40 FPS, Fortuna ran at 30-35 FPS. I'm not far into it so good luck Tenno.

I bought this for an Inspiron 3647 running Windows 10 and it took me ELEVEN hours to figure out how to install it...because I'm a noob. Solution is in last paragraph if you don't want to read about my trials and tribulations. My pc has only VGA and HDMI for monitor output, and the HDMI quit working. I wanted to have a dual monitor setup and I had an empty PCIe slot, so I figured I'd get a graphics card. My main monitor was VGA and I was hoping to get the 2nd (an old monitor I brought from work so I could work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic) into HDMI. Got the card inserted into the slot and powered everything back up. BLACK SCREEN!!! Not even the integrated graphics VGA worked! I had no clue what to do! I powered down, took the graphics card back out and was able to see via the VGA again. The product did not come with a cd for the driver, so I went to the NVIDIA website to download it. Got the .exe going, but it wouldn't let me run the install wizard because it couldn't detect the card. (Nooo duhhh...because I had to take the card out to even SEE how to get to the website to download the driver!!!) Only the integrated graphics showed up under display in Device Manager. I thought that maybe my HDMI cable was bad so I tested them out with the laptop. They worked great. Turns out the old monitor from work was no good. Back to the drawing board. I scoured tons of forums for solutions and pored over them for hours. One solution was to boot up in safe mode and enable the PCIe slot in BIOS. So, I go to BIOS and there is absolutely NOTHING about graphics, video interface, northbound or southbound (or whatever it is) settings...NOTHING. Spent about an hour trying to read up on BIOS and where else it could possibly be. Couldn't find a thing. So I decided to look up if I should update my BIOS. After all, I was running version A04. I got conflicting answers about whether or not I should - this did not really help me at all. I tried to find out how I could even update the BIOS...I didn't know where to go. My search led me to Dell's website, where I input the service code of my pc and it showed me about 11 different updates it needed to do - one of which was a BIOS marked URGENT! Matter of fact, it was wanting to update to BIOS version A11!!! No WONDER I was having trouble! Intel's website told me, if I understood it correctly, that I could not use an external graphics card in addition to the integrated graphics card...that only one would be active. That bummed me out because in order to make the graphics card fit, I had to take off the VGA port and install it with the smallest bracket, which only left me with HDMI and DVI. I was hoping to use the integrated VGA and the HDMI on the new graphics card. Solution: I updated my BIOS to the latest version, enabled Intel Multi-Display in BIOS, and was then able to continue the NVIDIA control panel installation, which enabled my new graphics card. I was also able to use the integrated VGA AND the HDMI on the new graphics card with no trouble! Hopefully, this poor sap is able to help another poor sap out. :) Con: My only con (other than the legwork required for me to install it - but that is most likely due to my pc being old) is that the fan is noisier than I expected.
