5/ 5

Comments: Doubles my frames-per-second over the HIS IceQ Radeon HD 4670 1GB.

Examples (according to fraps benchmarking):

Homefront -
HD 4670: 12-18 fps
GTS 450: 29-26 fps

Rift -
HD 4670: 15-25 fps
GTS 450: 32-51 fps

Borderlands:
HD 4670: 15-27
GTS 450: 55-62

That should give you an estimate on performance.

Very solid card

Pros: I purchased this card for my media center PC due to it's low profile and direct HDMI output. The card stays very cool and performs noticibly better than my EVGA GTS250. I play FIFA 2011 and GRID at 1920x1080 with settings cranked up and they run smooth. Don't under-estimate Palit as I did before purchasing it

Cons: I'm not a fan of the looks of this card but since it's used in my media center PC I don't really mind. Personally I would not have purchased this card for my gaming rig but that's just me being picky.

Overall Review: Great card at a great price. This card prooved me wrong and will keep my eye out for these Palit cards down the road.

Palit GTS-450 Rebate Issues

Pros: Card works well for a GTS line card. Reference design used in card is clean and it performs well. No glaring faults, a good card for the money (if I would have received my rebate).

Cons: I would have provided 5 eggs but the rebate company used are what amounts to crooks. I submitted all the information in the required timeframe and mailed the docs quickly. 2 1/2 weeks later they denied my claim without any notification. I was checking on line and found the denial. The stated missing UPC code was clearly attached to the submission doc in the requested location. When I tried to contact 4MyRebate I got a cryptic phone tree with no live help option.

Overall Review: Based upon my experience with the rebate processing firm I reduced a 5 egg rating to 3. (no the first time this has happen with 4MyRebate) The lack of accountability and responsibility of the rebate processing firm ties directly to the company using the service. I will check the rebate processing in the future and will not ourchase a product associated with 4MyRebate.

better than i expected

Pros: This thing runs significantly better than I anticipated for a very reasonable price. With my AMD x4 640, it runs Crysis on all high settings at 1600x900 hovering around 45 FPS, Mafia II on highest settings 1600x900 without PhysX around 50 FPS, and King Arthur Role Playing War Game at highest settings 1600x900 super smooth (I couldn't figure out how to check FPS but there are no signs of slowing down). I underestimated the OC of this thing. I played some of my older games like Counter-Strike: Source and found myself playing way better than I used to because I was running at 1600x900 full settings 140+ FPS rather than the 800x600 lowest settings 25 FPS I was used to, haha.

Cons: There are no cons.

Overall Review: This supposedly has a 22A current requirement for PSU rails, but it's not true. I'm running this on an Antec Earthwatts 380W PSU with my x4 640 and 880G motherboard with 4GB of DDR3 1600, and it works fine for hours on load. I think my 12V rail has only 17A, so as long as you don't dip below my PSU, you should be safe.

Not Bad

Pros: Very good mid/low range graphic solution. I bought this for my HTPC, may be a little overkill but figured it would last me awhile. Low power concumption and actually not to big, fits in my smaller "mid" tower case on a microatx board.

Cons: None atm

Overall Review: Now i need to upgrade my gaming pc..

Works well...for a bit

Pros: The card works very well. Ultra settings on both WoW and Sins of a Solar Empire

Cons: The card has a possibilty of failing very quickly. My card worked well for about two weeks, then just outright started locking up windows.

Overall Review: From what I've heard of people still are able to use the card just fine. Just hold onto the receipt or find a warranty to be prepared.

Works great, fits great...Love it!!!

Pros: Seems to have good build quality. It is shorter length than many cards so fit my mid-tower great by avoiding the SATA connectors on the main board. Other longer cards would have been iffy in my case. Works great on my computer since this is the most potent NVidia card that only uses one 6-pin power connector and I was down to my last one from my 460-watt power supply. I like the abundance of video connections versus other cards. Also, the fan shroud covers most of the card and channels air and heat out the back.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Although only slightly more expensive than other GTS450 cards this is a good value comparing its speed, stability and overall quality. I am not the most technically astute computer person yet it was easy to install. I bought this card for better graphics than my old 9300 and have been astounded. On Vista, brought my Windows experience index up from a 3.6 to a 5.9, the maximum under Vista (unknown what this would be on W7). Not using this for gaming, but rather for HD video editing/rendering using Sony Vegas 10 Platinum which apparently takes advantage of the Cuda technology in NVidia cards. Card system requirements indicate needs 12V with 22A current, but my PS indicats 16A and 15A rails and I have not had any problems at all (not sure how to interpret those specs).

Nice Features for the price

Pros: Feature rich and inexpensive. I'm not an intensive gamer, but it does everything I need for graphic design and video editing.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Like anything else that seems like a great buy, I worry a little about how it will hold up over time, but I'm optimistic.
