Hi,

 

My configuration is:

 

Processor: Intel Corei3 3220 

RAM: 1x4GB 1033 Corsair

Monitor: Samsung LCD on DVI-D Cable

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77 DS3H

 

I have installed Niresh Mavericks 10.9 on my PC with Windows 7 dual boot. I am able to run Mavericks but there is no hardware acceleration as native apps like safari flicker a lot.

 

So my question is: Will ZOTAC NVIDIA GEFORCE GT210 1 GB DDR3 GRAPHICS CARD run Mavericks on my configuration? I need it to run at 1600x900 resolution. Does it have suppport OOB or any fixes would be required?

 

Further, is it still the cheapest graphics card or any other alternate has come up?

 

PS: I am from Delhi, India.

 

Thanks a lot.

(Check Snapdeal, Flipkart, bwindia.net and also your local dealers for the best price)

 

Intel Pentium G2030 :  Rs 3100

Zotac GT210 : Rs 1700

RAM Transcend 4GB 1333Mhz : Rs 2200

Gigabyte B75m-D3h : Rs 3900

Intel SSD 520 120GB : Rs 2500 ( Check OLX for pulled out drives with full life)

All these add up to approximately 15000INR

 

QE/CI , sleep, wake, LAN, Sound Tested and works well. Boot time is under 5 seconds.

Hey Deepak,

do i have to install the drivers first?

When i install the Zotac GT210 and i reboot, bios setting is set to PCI-E, the bootloader quits with error message: Memory allocation error.

I get this error only when i try to boot using the Zotac GT210 :-(

With integrated GPU (Intel GMA950) i can't reach higher resolution than 1.024x768 :-(

 

Can you help me out please?

 

My System is a Lenovo Desktop PC with Intel C2D 1,6GHz, 4GB Corsair XMS2, Intel 945GC Express Chipset, Intel GMA950 integrated GPU and Zotac GT210 1GB VRam.

 

Thanks in advance!

Do a fresh install and don't select any option to enable gma graphics . Check is it started working ?

As I already said with using gt210 and my old syncmaster monitor higher resolution was 1152 x 1250 using VGA cable (correct the figure may be ratio is wrong cuz I forgot exact figure ) use dvi or hdmi port is better than VGA .

This will depend upon you ,do test and share results

Good luck :)
