Our Final Thoughts
When I received the 240 I honestly didn’t think much of it as I’m more of a performance guy, and well honestly a low profile low end card does not spell performance to me.
To my surprise this is one mini card with some major potential. The default speeds are very much lacking and at lower detail levels or lower resolutions I could see some light gaming being possible but once overclocked I could see some mid level gaming being a real possibility.
The pure fact that you can gain over 30% performance by just maybe 10 minutes of tuning from this card was awesome to me but now I have to wonder why Sapphire did not crank this up to begin with. The cooling capability is simply ridiculous as the GPU does not get warm at all and even when clocked so insanely high it still never broke into the 60s.
The card presently retails for $79.99 at Newegg which is right in the middle of the pack for 240 model cards.
Anyone with an off the shelf PC and a HDMI or DVI display would have a great choice with the GT240 especially if your target games is an eSports title such as SCII, DOTA or LOL which do not need a super beefy graphics card.
