This has got to be my favorite card. GTS 450 is surprisingly pwerful for such a low end card

Pros: High OC's, Runs very cool, Maxed most of my games

Cons: You get for what you pay

This is an amazing card for its current price and for what you can do with it in games makes it possibly the best (IMO) budget graphics card. It has maxed out all of my games at 1366x768 no problem. Including Crysis 2 which was very taxing on it but a bit of overclocking solved that problem. When I had mine it never reached 50C which was pretty amazing considering I had mine clocked at 1100MHz or something. I had it OC'ed like crazy on the stock cooler. I don't even know how it stayed so cool. I had it in a Coolermaster CM 690 II Advanced at the time.
