Evga is by far the best one because the stock GTs 450 clock is 783MHz awhile Evga's GTs 450 is clocked at 822 for free... You can reach 900MHz core clock when OCing...

^EVGA, and I'd say it's more because of their lifetime warranty than their overclocking, although it's certainly a nice bonus.

I think IMHO you really do not want a GTS 450 and it is if and when you get one you will see why you should have saved and or just bought something else.

What he meant is that you should buy a GTx 550Ti, It's a faster version of GTs 450...

LOL GTX 550ti and GTs450 are overpriced junk that should have never been introduced at there price points IMHO because 6850 and GTX 460 which are the best entry level serious gaming cards are $140 and $150 respectively which put GTS450 and GTX550ti into no mans land.

For the price points they sell at they're very good cards for those with 1280x1024 to 1440x900.

No they really are not if you think about that you can have a 6850 for $10 more than a 550ti and it is even better at those resolutions small by allot.

Maybe standard retail prices. There are rebates that reduces the GTS 450 to $70 and under. The lowest price I've seen a 6850 is $120 after a rebate. 550 ti often goes for $90 and under. So yeah not everyone's going to get these prices all the time, but for those who keep an eye out these prices are there.

Rebates are jankey and lowest GTX450 on Egg is $110 lowest 6850 is 30 more and worth it big time.

in my opinion you should go more higher on that price for example cards like hd 6850,hd 6770,hd 6790 this cards will perform more better then gts 450 but you wanna buy gts 450 then evga will be the best choice because its one of the best nvidia manufacturer.:)

$110 for a 7750 is not to bad cause that is the same price that the lowest price 5750s are going for although to get Crossfire he needs a 6770 for $100 and 7750 comes with no crossfire only.

I'm making the comparison between 6770 at $100 and 7750 at $110.

They are different classes of cards 7750 is a replacement for 5750/6750 that is what you have to compair them to but ya when you can get a 6770 for cheaper that makes it a far better deal even if the 777o is a slightly faster and card that takes no external power dongle.

In my opinion the price is the only way to determine which comparisons should be made. Not what card it is supposed to replace. But anyway, we seem to agree on the important point :)

To bad the price is not always in line with performance which if it was like it should be the 7770 would have launched @ $130 dollars and the GTX 580 would be $390 etc

The price point looks okay, but the whole thing is confusing since the HD 6850, something which is much powerful than the 7750, is available at almost the same price point, with rebate.

Nobody actually counts rebates as part of the retail price and in Canada we never get them in short rebates are hit and miss and not an accurate way to judge value or savings.

7750 ether matches or beats the 5770 in all games when under DX11 and high settings except Dirt3


Only time it "beats" 5770 in that review is Crysis 2 DX11. Where it scores rather unplayable 24fps. In other cases it barely matches 5770 and in Dirt 3 looses badly. At the current prices I wouldn't buy it.

All games mentioned below are DX 11 when available @ 1080p highest settings and fps are rounded to nearest whole number for clarity.

BF3 - 7750 = 24fps TIE
5770 = 24fps TIE

Crysis 2 - 7750 = 21fps WIN
5770 = 17fps LOSE

Skyrim - 7750 = 29fps LOSE
5770 = 31fps WIN

Dirt 3 - 7750 = 27fps LOSE
5770 = 33fps WIN

WoW - 7750 = 33fps LOSE
5770 = 35fps WIN

Metro - 7750 = 32fps WIN
5770 = 31fps LOSE

I will go on a limb and say in GPU intensive games and only in DX 11 the 7750 has a bit more raw power on tap but in lower settings and resolution and under DX9 where both these cards are realistically for all intents and purposes within there limits for comfortable gameplay I would give the edge slightly in favor of the 5770 but they are so close it would be hard to really justify one as flat out better than the other.
