that it occupies 2 slots in your system
takes up 2 slots in your case.
YOU BEAT ME
BOTH POSTED @ 2:09 LOL
i have dg41rq mobo two pci slots and one pcie 1.1 this means that this card occupy my 1 pci slot as well
You insert it only in your pci-e slot, but the card is thick enough to 'cover' the slot immediately beneath it and you won't be able to put another card in that slot beneath it.
is evga gts 450 pcie 2.0 compatible with pcie 1.1 or not?????
Yes, pci-e 2.0 cards are backward compatible.
wt abt performance diff
(If I understood your previous post...) performance difference is very minimal. I myself am running a 5970 on an old motherboard with only a pci-e 1.0 slot. Performance in furmark is on par with other 5970 owners. Games aren't affected either.
is it better than 5750
With a GTS 450 you won't see any performance difference whether you use pci-e 1.1 or pci-e 2.0; heck I used one GTX 480 on a pci-e 1.1 and thre was no difference.
It sits between the 5750 and the 5770 but it has big overclocking headroom (although you can also overclock an HD 5770); I have an EVGA SC in my other system and does 930mhz on stock voltages and 983mhz with the voltage increase, the memory goes up to 2330mhz
The 5750 is only very slightly better. If you run both cards you wouldn't even notice. Just a marginal edge shows in benchmarks.
Basically, the 5750 and GTS 450 give the same performance.
