Gigabyte GeForce GTS 450 1GB Video Card Review

NVIDIA’s current lineup of graphics cards has the top performers like the newly released GTX 580 and the GTX 480 that has been out for some time now.  These cards will give you top of the line performance, but will put a considerable dent in your wallet.  If you are on a budget NVIDIA’s GTS 450 maybe be what you need to get yourself into the DirectX 11 game.  This is NVIDIA’s lowest end DirectX 11 card.  Today we will be looking at the GV-N450-1GI from Gigabyte which does offer a higher clock speed and better cooler than NVIDIA’s reference GTS 450 card.  This card also will not break the bank as it can be found online for around $119.  Let’s take a look…

Special thanks to Gigabyte for providing us with the GeForce GTS 450 1GB Video Card to review.

Opening the box up everything is nicely packed inside.  Getting everything out you have the GTS 450 card inside of an anti-static bag, 6pin Molex power connector, DVI to VGA adapter, mini HDMI to HDMI adapter and the user’s manual.
