Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M: The GeForce GT 230M features 48 shader cores as the 9700M GTS but only a 64 bit memory bus. Because of the 40nm process the power consumption is in the region of the GT 130M.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
