    285GTX SLI on Antec trio 650

    First of all, OCZs aren't very good PSUs (for the most part, at least) so I'd rule that one out. You should be able to run 2 GTX285s on that PSU (assuming 175w per card + 125w for the CPU & 75w for everything else) but it would be closer than I would like to run for a long-term period of time...

    GTS 450

    Well, I think that from their experience you'd be very happy with them :) I must say I'm quite happy with my GTS450, I OCed it to 925/1850 (stock mem ATM) instantly, and it's been rock stable so far. Pulls between 8 and 14k PPD in FAH (611 & 9XX PT WUs, respectively)

    Upgrading from GTX 9800+ need help

    Go for a 1GB GTX460. It'll smoke a GTS450, your 9800GTX+, a HD5770, it's a bit faster than a HD5830 and about on par with a GTX465 (and runs cooler & uses far less power). IMO the GTX460 is the mid-range king ATM, cool, quiet, low power usage, and very good performance for not a lot of money

    GTS 450

    That would certainly be nice...if there was one for that price BR I would have snatched it up instantly. But I can't imagine that happening for a while :(

    SR-2 STACKER

    Incredible....subscribed!!

    GTS 250 512MB vs 1GB for dedicated PhysX

    Really anything more than even a GTS250 is way overkill. No need for 192 or 336 SPs

    GTS 450

    Oh. That makes sense :o Yeah, a strict limit of $150 BR...shame, because I could have had a GTX460 for $140 AR :(

    GTS 450

    $130. Cheapest GTS450 on NE without a MIR, decided that I would rather get something that's $130 without a rebate than something that's $140 and hoping for a $20 MIR. @ Staypuft: BR? And thank you for your helpful & constructive comments :)

    GTS 450

    If the perf/$ is the same as a GTX460 that's amazing!!! Really a shame that I couldn't have gone with a GTX460, but that wasn't going to be possible, and I always have the option of SLI down the road for a very reasonable price

    GTS 450

    :( Well, it does what I need. I haven't ever run into issues with only a limited amount of RAM (with what I normally do, memory usage doesn't go much above 1GB). And I have the i7 OCed because I run WCG, and the SSD because after reading how fast they were, I decided that it would be a good...

    GTS 450

    Well it's a shame that it's going to be that much slower, most of the reviews I found placed the TOP version (I'm hopeful that I'll be able to get TOP clocks) right around the HD5770, which is right around my GTX260. I guess I'll see when it gets here, and I guess I could always get a 2nd...

    GTS 450

    How much slower is it than a GTX260? And when OCed is it roughly the same? I have a 192SP GTX260 that, even OCed, is about on par with a standard GTX260, it came from Dell with lower-than-stock clocks :(

    GTS 450

    I looked at GTX460s, but I couldn't find one, except for EVGA's B-Stock one w/ a 90 day warranty, for under $150 shipped before rebate. I really would have liked to get a GTX460 768MB (after rebate, there was a Zotac one for $145), but I couldn't go over $150 BR. Parental restrictions :( And...

    GTS 450

    So I just got an Asus GTS450 DirectCU as a replacement for my dying GTX260. Was this a good choice for the price? I really, really don't like ATI and all I had to spend was $150 before rebate. What sort of clocks should I be able to get (OVing perfectly acceptable)?

    Gaming in Tight Spaces - MAX11L (featuring Gigbayte and Corsair)

    That looks absolutely incredible....must say I'm a bit worried about a GTX480 and an OCed i5 on a 450w PSU though :o
