I'm actually shocked !

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
My sig rig is my first computer that i made myself. I put a "decent" gts 450 in it, not expecting much. I'm a avid PS3 gamer (no anger/flame/hate please). I heard how intensive gta iv is, but nonetheless, i tried to run it on my pc. I know its old, but damn, it runs smooth! Constant 40 fps+ with everything on very high/highest and viewing distrance at 41. I didn't expect it to work so well!

Now, i'm contemplating another gts 450 for sli.

Just wanted to share my story here on OCN

PS: I got my dualshock 3 to work on win 7 64 bit, vibration included

Overclock the 450 with MSI afterburner, squeeze a few more fps out of it! Also, FOLD!!!

Good enough for the girls I go out with. I would definitely invest in a second one, you'll enjoy it for sure! And like I said before, fold! 450s are the best ppd/price card out there

Ghost has a point, the 460 would be better price per performance vs 2 gts 450s. If you decide to go 460, which is a great card, get the 1gb version, not the 768.
