[Best Buy] ZOTAC NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 - 80$ instead of $130

I'm building a home server/backup computer that needs a passive low profile card and this was a perfect fit. Figured I'd share the deal. Enjoy.

One of my kids was playing Fortnite and Minecraft with one of these on a lower res monitor (1280x1024 or something) for over a year. I wouldn't buy it for any real gaming though.

A 1050 can't even play games anymore a reasonable frame rate. The card is 3 years old.

Not everything is about games. I have a GT1030 (MSI) and I love it because, as the OP stated, it is passively cooled. I love silence. This is good if your CPU doesn't have an iGPU.

If you want to game, then yes, don't get this...

Will this fit in a SFF Dell Optiplex 9020?

Wondering the same thing, that heat sink is pretty wide and theres not much room in that case.

Thumbs up for the deal. No it isn’t a gaming card, but it’s cheap graphics for anything just driving display, or old/basic games. Also allows 4K video for any old pc’s you have.

I don't have this card.
Yes, based on picture and bracket included. But will require 2 slots due to wider heat sink.

Whats included?

Low-Profile Bracket
