Conclusion: The overclocked GPU used by the Gigabyte Geforce GTS 450 Extreme Overclock, worked wonders during our benchmarks. In all of our tests, the Gigabyte came out on top beating both the MSI and the Zotac graphic cards. It also competed extremely well against the Radeon HD 5770, which incidently costs the same, if not a little more. Now, one would think that a graphics card with so many features would cost a few dollars more.
Excerpt: While AMD are no doubt on the verge of releasing new models, from what we've been told the first set of cards that will be offered to us are designed to compete against one of the most well valued video cards on the market right now, known to us as the GTX 460.
Conclusion: NVIDIA’s new GeForce GTS 450 will without a doubt appeal to a broad spectrum of the market, particularly those who have been holding onto their early G92-based cards in hope of a lower-priced 400-series product. As we mentioned in our review of the reference version, the card accomplishes nearly everything it sets out to do but potential customers will likely gravitate towards overclocked versions rather than the base product.
