MSI’s overclocked N450GTS comes equipped with the same cooler style as its highly-rated sibling, yet the assembled product is four ounces lighter.
MSI includes a DVI-to-VGA and mini-HDMI-to-full-HDMI adapter for a PCB that closely follows Nvidia’s reference design. A custom backplate announces brand presence to onlookers.
MSI is tied for third-place in factory overclocking, at 850 MHz GPU clock and GDDR5-4000. Its oversized cooler allows buyers to push for even more performance.
