ASUS Geforce GTS 450 DirectCU OC 1GB Video Card Review

The GeForce GTS 450 has been around for quite sometime and many people don’t even think about it when they are purchasing a new video card.  You have to think though, it does offer substantial performance for little investment, so you can spend most of your cash on other items in your build.  Yes of course there are reference GTS 450 cards, but we are more interested in what comes a few months after launch.  ASUS has sent us their ENGTS450 DirectCU OC card, which has ASUS’s custom heatsink and is overclocked up to 850 MHz.  Let’s take a look…

Special thanks to ASUS for providing us with the Geforce GTS 450 DirectCU OC 1GB Video Card to review.

Opening the box up everything is nicely packed inside.  Getting it all out you have the GTS 450 DirectCU OC video card, driver cd, dual molex to 6pin PCI power adapter, and a user’s guide.
