Should I get a GTS 450 or a GTX 260 216SP

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I can get a cheaper Gigabyte dual fan GTS 450 then I can get a GTX 260. Should I get the 450 since it consumes less power and has DX11, and... its cheaper($94 Winforce X2 GTS 450 OC).

Well.. it's GIGABYTE, which is good. DX 11 Over DX 10. Cheaper... Newer ... I dont see any reason not to get it, facing those conditions.

Preformance is worse then the GTX 260. The only con. Would this card run Crysis Warhead without issues? I want to run it with a Phenom II 555

The GTX 260 Core 216 is somewhat faster then the HD 5770, and the 5770 is a little bit faster then GTS 450? I would not have bought any of these.. I would have saved some more money and bought a GTX 460. Even the 768MB version is a much better alternative than the rest mentioned here
