Sparkle GeForce GTS 450 1GB Video Card Review

Today we have another GeForce GTS 450 video card on the test bench.  As we said in our previous GeForce GTS 450 video card review the GTS 450 is NVIDIA’s lowest end DirectX 11 card, and it’s $100-$129 price tag reflects that.  These cards might not be the most powerful cards out there, but they will not break your wallet so if you are a gamer on a budget this may be the card for you.  Also this card can make a perfect dedicated PhysX card.  Let’s take a look at the GeForce GTS 450 from Sparkle and see how it performs compared to the competition.

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