5 out of 5 eggsWorks really well

Pros: I have a gaming computer, I'm not a hardcore gamer (aka I don't always get to play games.) But I do own the entirety of the Sims 3 (expansions, stuff packs, even mods improving the graphics), and it works fantastically on the highest settings. It doesn't even struggle.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: While it did work it had a very sharp picture

Cons: Do not waste your money on this card or any other card made by sparkle. I bought a 9800 a couple years ago. After 1 year the card blew several capacitors. Sparkled RMAed it and sent me a refurbed 450. After 1 week the card has died. The capacitors are not burnt not sure what happened this time

2 out of 5 eggsAudio Driver Issues

Pros: Good Price for 1gb GDDR5 GTS450. Better image quality than integrated intel i3-530 graphics.

Cons: Mini-HDMI port. Loud fan at startup sounds like a leaf blower but eventually quiets down once in windows. Having issues installing audio drivers. No audio at all.

Other Thoughts: I am currently having issues installing the audio drivers for this device. I have used various drives, one with installation disc, and latest on nVidia site but no luck. May possibly be a bad GPU and need RMA. So far can't enjoy listening to HD videos, can only view them.

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless

Pros: The card had no problem pulling 40+fps with Crysis on high settings. This is with an older system and Dx9. I would definitely buy from sparkle again. It's simply a great deal for the price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: In the 6 or so months I've had it, I've NEVER had an issue with it.

5 out of 5 eggsSparkle GTS 450

Pros: Runs everything High, even Crysis 2 @ 40 Fps
No Fps lag on any games what so ever.
I can now record game play at high settings without hiccups. (60fps/full-size using Fraps)

Cons: BSOD a few times, All I did to fix the BSOD issue was UPDATE my BIOS.
It was an easy fix and now it has never bsod'ed ever.

Other Thoughts: You must have a Power Supply to support it 500+ watt even if it says 400watt I'd recommend a 500+ watt PSU.
If you are having problems running games any better than previously make sure you are changing settings in the game/and in/Nvidia Control panel. Update your other hardware as well.
I had a dual core 6000+ am2 cpu and upgraded to a am2+ x4 9850 and everything improved 10x's even better with the new gfx card. I can now record game play with fraps at full-size @ 60fps with out any hiccups.

1 out of 5 eggsOverheats fast when playing in DX11

Pros: Cheap card, you get what you pay for..

Cons: Overheats within 5 minutes of playing any highend game (in my case it was deadrising 2. Core temps hit 60c and yeilded a BSOD.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy another card by sparkle. I dont know If I can RMA this card, but if I can I'll be buying a gigabyte card, they make them much better than this poor performance card.
