Biostar GeForce GT240 1GB GDDR5 Video Card Review

On the testbed today is Biostar’s Geforce GT240 (VN2405THG1).  The Geforce GT240 is a lower-end card and is aimed at HTPC applications.  While this card can be used for gaming (somewhat), it is best used for displaying 1080p (“Full HD”) video and helping with other video decoding duties.  The best news is that this card can be overclocked, so it can still be fun for us enthusiasts.

Specifications

The GT240 doesn’t have overly impressive stats, but the 1GB of GDDR5 and HDMI port keep it relevant in todays market.
