If you’re looking for an upgrade but tight on the budget, this may be the card upgrade for you. Do take note that this card is not going to give to you an awesome gaming experience but a slightly average display for its price.
You can run games at low to medium settings at 720p since most games today by default even at the lowest settings still look good. If you already have a GTX 1050 up then this card is not an upgrade and you will definitely notice the downgrade. I previously have a GTX 750 ti and when that card died, I needed the cheapest alternative and the GT 1030 is right on the budget.
Also if you’re into mining, this can be a cheap mining card coupled with its low TDP and power requirements shine where you need it the most.
