My System Specs


Great review SKY! I found an error on page 6 of the ASUS review.

The basic look of the ASUS GTS 450 TOP should seem familiar since it uses the exact same DirectCu heatsink as the HD 5850 TOP we recently reviewed. It should also be mentioned straight off the bat that ASUS has completely tossed the reference NVIDIA design aside and has literally reengineered the GS 450 from the ground up.
Anyways, if I was to buy a GTS 450 out of the 3 reviews that I read/skimmed, it'd be the ASUS or Gigabyte. EVGA has disappointed me with no lifetime warranty and it's high price. If I wanted to go the cheapest route, I'd pick Gigabyte. However ASUS will allow for some pretty insane overclocks thanks to the ability to change the voltage. The other GTS 450 can't do that right?
