GeForce 210 Review
GeForce 210 (first revision) is an entry-level GFX based on the 2009, 40nm, second-generation unified architecture and the only GPU from the 200 Series that was not discontinued and is still produced.
It's based on the GT218 Core and offers 16 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on 64-bit memory interface of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 589MHz and the memory clock operates at 400MHz.
512MB versions are also available which will perform similar to this one since this GPU does not benefit from a 1GB frame buffer.
It's only suited for modest 3D games (high settings). Modern demanding games will have to be played at the lowest settings or are unplayable at all. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.

Note: GeForce 210 was later renamed and released as GeForce 305.

Works ok, but I recommend you get a little better graphics card. The card I have now (without OC), GT 610, works just fine with that CPU.

its a very weak card ; 512MB versions are also available which will perform similar to this one since this GPU does not benefit from a 1GB frame buffer.

well, i can tell your friend the bad news atleast… sorry im not much help and im really just stating the obvious. he needs to do pretty much a FULL upgrade.. the reason why is bcoz when he decides it is the right time to upgrade he will most likey have to upgrade pretty much all the components just so they can talk to eachother and are not bottle-necking eachother… thats what i did.. took me a while:D

There's no point to overclock such weak card,if he wants to play some games he will have to buy another,much stronger card

For everybody who thinks this is wrong: there are 2 versions of the 210: one is this one, the other one is 1 gb ddr3, which is obviously better. You can find the other one here: http://www.game-debate.com/hardware/index.php?gid=326&graphics=GeForce%20210%201GB
