Budget Graphics Cards Tested - Q3 2006 VGA Roundup

By: Shawn Baker | Editorials in Video Cards | Posted: Aug 25, 2006 4:00 am

Biostar 7300GT


To be completely honest with you, I wasn't sure if Biostar even made graphics cards these days as it seems everyone is so focused on the major companies that we forget about some of the others. With that said though, Biostar have got a bit of a gem on their hands with a DDR3 model 7300GT.


The front of the box is your pretty standard layout - main specifications, model number and something to draw your eye to it over others. The Sigma-Gate logo is what they call their graphics card line up and can be seen on all models.




Turning the box over we have our very standard key features layout with a comparison of some of the technology that is used on the card. The top of the box also shows us that this is a Turboclock model which means it comes overclocked. With the inclusion of the faster DDR3 memory, you would want to think so otherwise the benefits would be quite limited.



Opening up the box we have very little - a user manual, driver CD and a S-Video to RCA connector for TV out. One of the lightest packages around but we will have to see how performance goes with the DDR3 memory.



Getting to the card we of course see the SLI connector on the top along with a DVI, VGA and S-Video connector on the I/O panel. The funky copper fan is designed quite well except you can see that no air is really directed towards the top of the memory. The Biostar 7300GT sports a healthy 475MHz core and 1000MHz memory clock.
