IM LOOKING FOR SOME OPINIONS ON THE EVGA GEFORCE GTS 450 VIDEO CARD. I AM BUILDING MY 2ND SYSTEM AND IM NOT SURE IF THIS CARD IS WHAT IM LOOKING FOR. PC IS GOING TO BE USED FOR MID RANG GAMING AND BASIC PHOTO/VIDEO EDITING.
THIS IS MY BUILD:
CASE: COOLERMASTER CM 690 II ADVANCED
MOTHERBOARD: EVGA P55 SLI
CPU: INTEL I5 750 W/ STOCK FAN
MEMORY: 4GB OF G SKILL DDR3 1333MHZ
HARD DRIVE: 1TB SAMSUNG SPINPOINT F3
GPU: EVGA GEFORCE GTS 450 SUPERCLOCKED
PSU: COOLERMASTER SILENT PRO 600W
CD/DVD: SAMSUNG CD/DVD BURNER
OTHER: 3 FANS, MULTI CARD READER, WIRELESS NETWORK CARD
HAS ANY ONE ELSE USED THIS CARD BEFORE. ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT.
I dont have a monitor yet. Im going to hook it up to a 20" hd tv through a vga connection. Resolution is not going to be to high. 640x480 at the highest for now. Planning on getting a 20" monitor in the future.
640 x 480???????? That's going to look HORRIBLE! And even a HDTV with a VGA connection should be able to do better than that! LOL
LOL You could put just about any video card in to play @ 640 x 480.
Any 20" PC Monitor these days (should you buy one) will be 1680x1050 (minimum) or 1920x1080 resolution.
I'd suggest the GTX 460 if you can afford one. That'll do better up to 1920x1080. If the GTS 450 is your budget cap, I'd get a 1680x1050 monitor as 1920x1080 will be pushing it with the latest game releases.
