Summary: I have had two of these in my machine in non SLI mode pushing four monitors at 1920x1080. I have had no issues out of these in the year that i have had them. Low heat generation, and work great for basic photo shopping, email and web browsing. I never played games on them, but i dont think they would do that bad.
I like it, but have need of bigger performance and ended up selling it.

Summary: Card works excellently for for light to medium gaming on 1600x900 or less resolution. Really struggles on my 1920x1200 24" IPS monitor due to much more real estate. I was able to game on the smaller monitors at High or Ultra settings in 2-3 year old titles, but same games on bigger monitor had to drop the detail levels down to low to medium to get playable framerates. Very quiet overall and definitely worth the money.
Summary: Seller sent me the wrong card, but they were willing to give me a $5 discount. For me, the card I got works just fine but I would have loved to have the factory overclocked EVGA model. The EVGA model would have far out performed the model i received which is why I gave the EVGA model a 5 star rating. The seller that sent me the wrong version of the card was COMPUVEST. I would avoid buying 3rd party brand name parts from this seller if at all possible.
Summary: I use my older PC to watch films/TV episodes in my bedroom while I am falling asleep. My older generation GPU that the GTS 450 replaced wasn't quite cutting it (sometimes choked on HD video, plus it didn't have a fan). The GTS 450 easily executes 1080p video playback on my 27" monitor (check my other reviews for a great monitor!) PROS: Power for the Price, I got this for $95 and I'm impressed by how many features a budget card can have.
