Pretty good

GIGABYTE GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card GV-N450OC-1GI

Pros: Good card, works, and is a good price. No problems with it in my computer.

Cons: Only con I found was when I have a DVI cable plugged in nearest the mini HDMI I can't plug their adapter into the mini HDMI because they ports are too close. Only thing I found that would work is to get a mini HDMI to HDMI cable so you don't have the thick HDMI right up in there by everything.

Overall Review: Easy fix yet it shouldn't be necessary in my opinion, they should either supply a better adapter or fix the spacing. Not a big deal though.

SLI?

Pros: I have two of these boys bought separately within about 3 months of each other and both are running flawless without any problems.

Cons: I wish it came with a freakin SLI Bridge, it's hard to find one alone without digging around the internet and having to wait another week to get it.

Overall Review: I can't find a SLI bridge!

4/5 eggs

Pros: Great card, looks snazzy and works like a champ!

Cons: Well the card is very long, it sticks right into my HD bays so I had to gap them from each other in order to stick it in. It was tough getting all the cable re attached to everything with this sticking out but I got it. Also there is a small flaw with the ports (at least with my case) where the DVI port is too close to the mini HDMI port, so when my DVI monitor is attached I wasn't able to put the mini HDMI to HDMI converter it, (DVI interfered) However with just a short Mini HDMI to HDMI CABLE I was able to avoid this. Just a note.

Overall Review: Overall good buy, most computer users don't have 3-4 hard drives so you can avoid the card sticking into the bays, and using all the ports are slightly rare too, with just the cable mentioned above the problem can be avoided. I wish they would give a cable instead of the small adapter in the first place.
