Sparkle Geforce GTS450 OC 1024MB Video Card

A Closer Look

The Sparkle GTS450 has a somewhat plain look about it. No fancy plastic box thing covering the whole thing, just a motherboard with a big heatsink, and an even bigger fan making it a dual slotter. The fan enclosure is styled mind you, so it’s at least nice to look at. But, what else can we expect from a budget card?

The Sparkle GTS450 contains two DVI ports and 1 mini-HDMI port. The Sparkle comes with a mini-HDMI-HDMI cable so you don’t have to worry about ordering a new cable.

Testing a graphics card is usually pretty simple, and unlike most computer components, the GPU can be easily tested in a real world situation, such as gaming. So, first we will do the standard slew of synthetic benchmarks, then we get to the games.
