Hahahha... I don't know who is the culprit for such 4gb fanless things. Zotac or Nvidia.

Hey, I'll have now 8Gb total ddr3 ram in my PC as I'll buy new ram too.

So graphics card being ddr5 is not an issue I hope?

And do I have to check for any further incompatibilities or hidden numbers in my existing motherboard model so as I don't end up buying the wrong card?

Hi,
Well you haven't posted any information about your machine so that is hard to say
You can use cpuid/ cpu-z and post the Mainboard/ cpu/ memory sections
CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID

You can also open the side of the case and take a picture of the inside

I've made a simple modification on my previous graphics card that is a silent edition. Put a fan on it (Super glue it) 80mm will do but be careful on the graphics card it may not sit on the PCI-E slot properly. I still agree on ThrashZone on getting the 2GB DDR5 version. Only choose the silent version if your case has enough fans to cool it off (My GeForce 210 doesn't have one and the chassis has a 120mm front fan). Changing the thermal compound is another solution to thermal problems (But I wouldn't reccomend doing it every year, just a maximum of 1.5 years will do and a cleaning will do the trick.)

Oh, sure. I'll post the complete information about my motherboard in an hour or so. I've just woken up and was checking messages. Thanks for replying. 4gb graphics card without fan vs. 2gb card with fan?

I found graphics card of 2GB and 4GB under my budget of 7000 bucks.


I am considering the following options


#1 Zotac-GeForce GT 730 4GB (without cooling fan) priced at Rs. 6494


#2 Zotac Nvidia Gt 730 - 2Gb (with cooling fan) priced at Rs. 5198



I do page layout composing that includes photographs of 8 megapixels. I also do photoshop work, HD video editing in Adobe Premiere, 3d modeling in Sketchup and still scene photo realistic rendering in Sketchup using vray.


I don't play games at all.


Is it safe to buy a graphics card (option #1 i.e. 4Gb variant) that does not have a fan?

Are you talking $70.00 dollars because $7000.00 is extreme for any GPU lol
