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.
