Hi guys,

I just bought the GTS 450 and was wondering if this is really a good card for the tight budget average gamer, I have nothing against ATI cards just prefer Nvidia.

Yes, the target consumer of the card are exactly for the average gamer. It'll run most games in decent settings. If you didn't have an nvidia preference, the HD 5770 might have been the better choice.

Too bad that you already bought the card, i'm pretty sure with GTX460 you can maxed out almost everything on 20" monitor...
GTS450 a little bit slower than HD5770.
Yes, you can play any games with decent setting with your system+gts450...

Yeah but this GTS 450 was on special as i was originally going to buy the GTX 460 but save R 600 South African Currency *Rand* So what would you do? Atleast its a 400 series could of been worse,lol

No no, i'm not saying your card is bad no...
It's a good card for average gamer, since you only play on 20" monitor then that card is just enough to play any games with decent setting.
Enjoy your card, you have a good gaming PC there... :)

Well i did some research with regard to the 400 series and ATI 5000 series cards, Benchmark graphs of games from what iv seen it entirely depends on what games we play as in some instances the 460 performed better as well as the 5770 in the same token the GTS 450 out performed those cards with other games, could it be what engines the game developers used to make the games?
