no.

450 is like a 250, 250 is like a gtx+, gtx+ is a faster gt.

not worth it. 460 768mb prices are dropping like flies! wait a bit and get a cheap 460.

So you're saying I won't notice any improvement over a 9800 GT with a 460?

Given that a 450 has 192 cores, and the 250 has about 128, isn't the 450 more like at least the early 260s?

Get a GTX460 and that would be a good upgrade. Double the memory, double the mem bandwidth, triple the SP. Also HD 5750 si faster then GTS450 its not worth it.

No there will be a huge difference between the 460 and 9800gt. GTS 450 is a good card but its not the best you could do with a price range like that.

Go for the gtx460! I came from an 8800 GT sonic edition (and OC'D like hell) and I saw the difference in performance for all the games I play!. You also have to take into consideration that the 460's OC like hell reaching performance levels of the 470 (almost), it also beats the 5830 and ties and beats (depending on the game) the 5850.

That's pretty good bang for the buck if you ask me! now if he sells his 9800GT, he'll probably be paying less than $100 for the new 460, so I think it's worth it!

my two cents...

At first I thought maybe it would be but considering you could get a GTX 260 216sp for around 110-120 its not that good of a deal, this thing is just too crippled.

Buy my 285
= 465
No dx 11 but still good card. i was going to use it as a phyicis card. But 2 480 in sli is better i think

450 not worth it. its more or less new pyisic card.
460 1 gb card is good. 460 758 is a pos.
I would say 460 1 gb .

The GTS 450 is a major upgrade to the 9800 Gt! No doubt about that, looking at its performance though, I would recommend a 5770 at its price! No need to wait for price drops, it is the same price now!!

Also for SC2 CPU is much more important. a Core i7 + 9800GT will run it much better then your CPU + GTX480.
