Review: More for less


Conclusion

EVGA offers three GTS 450 cards: GTS 450 Free Performance Boost, GTS 450 Superclocked and GTS 450 For The Win. All three cards come overclocked with the FPB running at 822/3608 MHz, SC running at 882/3800MHz and the FTW at 920/4104MHz.

Our today’s guest was the most affordable of the three – the GTS 450 FPB (Part Number: 01G-P3-1450-ET). Just like the other two cards in EVGA’s arsenal, the GTS 450 FPB comes with reference cooling. The FPB is priced at €107, SC at €112 whereas the FTW version costs €120, here.

In short, the GTS 450 is a nice Fermi implementation with adequate performance for low-budget gaming. Gaming at 1680x1050 is a breeze but 1920x1200 is possible as well, although you’ll probably have to lower game detail settings. Furthermore, EVGA’s factory overclock of 40MHz for the GTS 450 FPB’s will result in about 4% improved performance compared to the reference card.

This card is backed with EVGA's 2-years warrany. You may extend your limited warranty, but here in Europe only FOR products refered to as E-Series products. For more information check here.

Geforce GTS 450 is an affordable card that features DirectX 11, CUDA, 3D Vision and PhysX support. The card’s performance is somewhere between the HD 5750 and HD 5770, which doesn’t make things easier for end users, especially considering that this price-range is usually dictated by the-cheaper-the-better rule.

So, EVGA GTX 450 FPB comes with efficient and quiet cooling, affordable pricing, factory overclock and even further overclocking performance.
