Im looking to buy a new card Asus Geforce GT 710 2GB for my XP pc and this one suits my build as the video card has no fan it just has a heat sink, I have seen online there is a driver for this card and XP but has anyone used this card for XP if so do you have any advice to get it running? I have in my system:

Core 2 Duo 3GHz
4GB DDR3 1333MHz
Gigabyte GA-G41MT-D3 motherboard

My ram is rated at 1333MHz but my motherboard is only rated at 1066MHz as I didnt have any 1066 laying around at the time of build and it runs fine but im looking into overclocking it to 1333 and boosting the CPU to hopefully 3.5GHz or more

Be aware that the GT710 and also the GT730 come in two variants with DDR3 or GDDR5 memory and it's not always obvious which type is on it.

The first variant is painfully slow.

Seriously, this advice is golden. I recently ordered the DDR3 version by mistake and regret it.
