Introduction

Lately we’ve looked at quite a few graphics cards lately, particularly those in the mid-to-upper range in terms of performance and price. And while much of the buzz will continue in the near future no doubt, there is something simple to consider that may got lost in the hype: not everyone can afford monster gaming cards. Yes, as tough as it is to believe, there are a great number of consumers who aren’t hardcore gamers or enthusiasts, who want something far more affordable in a graphics card, yet still can handle a bit of light duty gaming from time to time.

We’ve seen several Kepler-based graphics cards from Nvidia, and have noted their ability to provide great performance at competitive prices. And today is a bit of a continuation of that trend, as we’re looking at the GeForce GT 640, a lower-end card that comes with a retail price of around $100 and targeted to consumers on a very tight budget that don’t need a powerhouse gaming card.

While the ECS GeForce GT 640 does target modest goals, we love great value, so the question is can this card perform reasonably well enough to earn a recommendation from us? Let’s see how it shapes up.
