Well the 450 is certainly a huge improvement over the 4770. So yes, it would theoretically improve graphics performance. At your resolution however? Not massively, i think 1600x900 won't tax too many cards unless you really start ramping up the settings.

If you want to get the 450, go right ahead, you may be able to set some game settings to higher etc without compromising framerate and will be able to make use of DX11 if you're on windows 7 (bad company 2 etc).

On the other hand, if you save your money further for a more meaningful upgrade to the rig as a whole and a bigger monitor, you will have a much improved experience over a simple GPU upgrade to a monitor that doesn't necessarily need one.

The GTS 450 will not be a huge upgrade over the HD 4770, it will be faster, but not that much.Tell us your budget and maybe we can help.

it IS NOT A HUGE UPGRADE over a 4770. just like what he ^ said. but it is uprgade none the less. a huge upgrade will come in the form of a gtx460 768mb with a mid-high oc on your e8300.

i am curious to understand what you mean about a new monitor,do you mean a HDMI monitor,coz the asus 20inch widescreen i have is not HDMI,is the HDMI monitor much better and easier for my video card to run quality graphics,i think it is also cheaper for me to get a better monitor,,thanks,i will wait your reply
