Big card, medium performance, low price.

Editor's Score
The Verdict:
Reasonable performance at a decent price.

And now onto the main star attraction of the show, the benchmarks. As usual, our testbed comprises of an Intel Core i7 965 EE with 3GB Corsair XMS3-1333 RAM on the ASUS II Rampage Extreme Motherboard. Drivers used were the beta Forceware 260.63. We have also used the ECS Black GTX 460 from last week for comparisons along with a Sapphire HD 5770.

It’s interesting to see the GTS 450 pull out such playable frame rates for Just Cause 2 even with all the settings turned up to full and Anti-Aliasing at 4x.

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.

    GTX 450 ??? you maybe meant GTS 450, please watch this confusion because it may be really hard to understand anything from this review…. the brower title is GTX 460, the review title GTX 450 (which doesn't exist….)
