Best Single Slot Video Card?
I currently have a GTS 450 and it suits my gaming needs just fine at 1680 x 1050.
However, it blocks my SATA ports on my motherboard, so I'm looking for a single slot solution.

I've read that the 6750 may be good and it's about the same performance as my current card?
Plus I could do hybrid crossfire with an AMD video card :thumb:

GeForce GTS 450 vs GeForce GTX 650 Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare

Or a 640 would be very close to the performance of a GTS 450 i think! those cards are around 100$ and 80$...
I would really recommend a 650 or a 640,new technology! and they are small.

You are right,the 6750 is about the same performance...But well it's not a super new card :/
You got PCIe 3 with a 650.

What about a 7750? I hear they over clock quite well.

Thanks bliz, that's an awesome comparison website!
I didn't realize my 450 used so much power :o

No problem!but be careful,that does not mean everything,you also have to check benchmarks!

Some single slot gtx 460 were made, that's the most powerful gpu in single slot design i'm aware of.

I think the brand was kfa2 or something like that, can't remember...
