The GeForce 610 is an entry-level dedicated video card from NVIDIA. It has performance roughly on par with contemporary onboard graphics from Intel and AMD, so it isn't usually an upgrade for a modern system with onboard video - but it can be employed on motherboards where graphics are not included, or when combined with onboard graphics can add support for more monitors.

Asus' version of this card is passively-cooled, meaning it has no fans. It has a wide range of video outputs: DVI, HDMI and VGA; any two of those can be used at the same time. It is also low-profile, allowing use in slim cases. The passive heatsink sticks out a bit, so use of this card blocks the slot directly below it on the motherboard.

Good if you need an additional 1 or 2 monitor support beyond what onboard video gives you.

Jeff Stubbers (Mr. Customer Service) Says:
This is an entry-level graphics card to offer video output for motherboards that do not offer that. If you have a mainstream motherboard that supports onboard video, I recommend choosing that over this card as it tends to offer more performance. If you plan to run any graphically demanding programs, then I would recommend going with a higher-end graphics card.
