The NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 video card is said to bring the GeForce 400 series features and performance to a very attractive $129 price point for gamers on a budget. We have a pair of NVIDIA GTS450 reference cards to run in SLI and also overclocked cards from ASUS, EVGA and MSI to try out. With a new test system and new suite of benchmarks, read on to see how the GeForce GTS 450 does against the ATI Radeon HD 5770 and GeForce GTX 460 768MB video cards!
After spending a week testing four different NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 video cards we have to admit we are very impressed with the performance of the video card in both single card and SLI configurations. For between $129 and $149 the cards that we tested here today pack a mean punch for the price you pay. If you play games at 1280x1024, 1680x1050 or 1440x900 the GTS 450 video card won't disappoint as long as you are okay turning down the AA and some of the image quality settings in the game. The NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 easily walks all over the ATI Radeon HD 5750 and actually performed equally with the similarly priced ATI Radeon HD 5770! Both cards lead the other in four benchmarks and then in the final benchmark each card led in one of the resolutions tested. The GeForce GTS 450 and the Radeon HD 5770 appear to be fairly equal, but then you have to consider the features that each card offers and what brand you are loyal to, if any.
