The 450 directly competes with the 5750 and is more than enough for your resolution, so no need to send the extra dough for a 5770. None of the 3 cuts it for 1920 so if ya planning on a monitor upgrade think about the 6850 / 460

What is the measurement used to rate the cards in that chart. Relative performance sometimes includes things like price and power consumtion. Not exactly a pound for pound comparison of raw gaming performance. Just curious more than anything

Pure FPS across a suite of several gaming benchmarks.

Now if you want Performance per Dollar:

I just checked the benchies on two sites, comparisons of 450 VS 5770. I have to admit that in most games the two are much closer than I recalled them being. The 5770 does eek out a slight win on most of the games, but it is nothing I would ever notice in real world gaming. Buy which ever card is the best deal and be happy there is a place like this where options are debated and questions are answered.

Its about getting a good answer for the OP, not gloating. For the record I would still have a tough time selecting either card cause the 5770 does do better in some games so the case could be made that someone may choose it for a certain series of game. Malmental and Matto - while i am still sort of new here, you two don't reflect the spirit of this forum with those type of posts.

I get it and I apologize if any of that gave the wrong impression. I was actually trying to give a funny/weird response to his weird post. I didn't respond to malmental in terms of the thread discussion. Malmental and I have developed a rapport and I think he was just being silly.

it really depends on the review you look at but most reviews show 5770 has a fair performance edge on the gts450 with no overclocking on either card. Both these reviews show a bit different results for both cards http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gts-450-gf1...
http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2010/09/13/nv...

You definitely want to consider whether the card you purchase comes with a factory overclock or not. A factory overclock will make the difference between whether one card beats the other and vice versa. I'm not sure about the 5770's, but most of the GTS 450's that you are likely to buy will come with a factory overclock. Of course, you can always overclock yourself. For me, I prefer a higher performing card out of the box... and then also overclock it myself.

The charts I posted show the difference in performance between a stock clocked GTS 450 and a factory overclocked Asus TOP.

I own the EVGA gts 450 and it is a great graphics card. I run dirt 2 and Bad Company 2 on high settings at 1920x1080 and have not had any frame rate problems. The gts 450 is most often cheaper than the 5770 and in some tests it even outperforms it. The evga gts 450 is only 99.99$ with rebate http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... while most 5770's go for about 150$

I have looked at both options for my own computer, and in Australia both are priced similarly for stock clocked versions. People go on about oh, but gts450 overclocked beats 5770. yeah, but you can overclock the 5770 too making it faster again. However, from my point of view, if i bought the gts450 now, i could always use it as a dedicated physx card in future when i get a better card, or SLI with another to get better/similar to 5770 crossfire performance. In the end i decided the upgrade is not worth it to my highly overclocked 8800gts and im gonna wait for the gtx460 to drop in price a bit and get one of those, if something better doesnt come out down the track. Pricing has been a bit stagnant on these models where i live for a while so im sure a price drop will hapen in the next couple months.

Just for my own information, are the majority of 5770's for sale factory overclocked or stock clocked?

Actually the 5770's can be found for the same $99.99 after rebate at the same site !!

also factory oc'd 5770's are only overclocked by a few mhz and not worth it for 0.5 fps, just overclock yourself. Some overclocked gts450's are clocked significantly higher than stock and may be worth it depending on how much more they cost, although you can still overclock yourself anyway.
