Low Profile Design
The SPARKLE GeForce 210/GT220/GT240 Silent Series Graphics Cards are a half-height video cards suitable for small form-factor, book size and home theatre PCs users that desperately want a dedicated HDMI jack on the cheap.The SPARKLE GeForce 210/GT220/GT240 Silent Series Graphics Cards can be easily installed in narrow space HTPC chassis. So the SPARKLE GeForce 210/GT220/GT240 Silent Series Graphics Cards not only can easily meet the HD video playback and DX10.1 gaming demand from HTPC users, but also can easily satisfy the requirements from SSF, mini-chassis and industry PCs which demand compact and practical graphics cards.

1GB Large-capacity High Speed Video Memory
Today‘s game, such as Crysis, Alone in the Dark 5, Stalker: clear sky, they normally use a large number of bump texture, transparent texture to describe faces of characters and render realistic gaming scenes, so these games put higher demands on the capacities of video memory.The current situation demands at least 512MB video memory to run these games.The SPARKLE GeForce 210/GT220/GT240 Silent Series Graphics Cards come with incredible large 1GB DDR3 / 512MB DDR2 high speed video memory can let users to pass the 3DMark Vantage High Test which strictly demand at least 512MB video memory, providing much more detail information to mainstream users for better understanding its graphics capability.

Ultra Silent Cooling System
The SPARKLE GeForce GT220/GT240 Silent Series Graphics Cards are equipped with SPARKLE innovative back-cooling technology with 2 copper heat pipes at the front side and copper heat sink at the back side of the PCB, with fanless design to deliver high-performance cooling at 0dB. This exquisite designed cooling system lets the SPARKLE GeForce GT220/GT240 Silent Series Graphics to occupy only one PCIe slot, easily to be put into the small case of Slim type chassis. The SPARKLE GeForce 210 Silent Graphics Card comes with a Aluminum heat sink whose shape is designed into S-type, so it can effectively increase the cooling area, while avoiding the insufficient cooling of  traditional heat sink.

All-Solid-Capacitor Design
The capacitors are key factor of power supply on the system and it has great impact on system stability. At present, solid capacitors and electrolytic capacitors both store electricity and discharge it when needed. According to factual test, any operation under high frequency and temperature, solid capacitors are able to supply more stable current than electrolytic capacitors and strengthen longer lifespan. Solid capacitors contain zero risk of leaking or exploding. The SPARKLE GeForce 210/GT220/GT240 Silent Series Graphics Cards use all solid capacitor as a true factor of products quality.

Experience Vivid DX10.1 Graphics
Experience the vivid DX10.1 gaming graphics at fluent frame rates, or go beyond traditional 3D graphics and experience GPU-accelerated NVIDIA® PhysX™ gaming effects, Stereoscopic 3D, and lightning fast video and image processing. All you need is the SPARKLE GeForce 210/GT220/GT240 Silent Series Graphics Cards with full DirectX 10.1 and full Shader Model 4.1 support, delivering unparalleled levels of graphics realism and film-quality effects.
