for Hackintosh purpose, choose 730 than 1030.
And I think it will be the last of its series, a shame :( the card is cheap and decent, it´s the only graphic card with gt series that my local store is selling right now.
gt 1030 at least is low comsuming energy better and more ghz clock speed and memory speed including its pre-overclocking turbo than gt 730 because there is no much difference in raw performance, a good option is you dont have a lot of money than have nothing.
Now I understand why there weren't GT 930...
