GeForce GTS 450 Gets Listed on US Store, Reference Clock Model Pegged at $129.99

A couple of days ahead of its worldwide launch, NVIDIA's GeForce GTS 450 based graphics cards from various board partners have been listed on American e-tailer Newegg.com. The list of cards shows an interesting mix of prices and variants. To begin with, the base-model (those which stick to NVIDIA's reference clock speeds of 783/1566/900(3600) MHz core/shader/memory, are pegged at US $129.99. These are followed by mild-overclock variants (those with 4~5% increase in clock-speeds) being priced at around $135, those with higher overclock settings out of the box (that's 9% to 12%) are priced between $135 and $140. The GeForce GTS 450 is NVIDIA's lower-mainstream SKU based on the 40 nm GF106 GPU, it has 192 CUDA cores, 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface, and support for the latest PC graphics APIs including DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4. It is slated for early next week.

Ya know there will be price drops come ATI 6 series soon. It be better to wait, get 2 460s cheap, then have 480/5870 performance. Or if you can't wait, get the one 460 now then get another when the prices drop.

Hmm .. I dont think that will be much of an upgrade going from a 9800GT (similar to a HD4830 --> HD4870 upgrade) ... only possitives that I can see are ...
* will consume less power (probably)
* Less heat
* DX11
* more CUDA cores
* overclocking headroom (40nm)

Its best if you can get a GTX460 instead ... only prob I see is your low end processor bottlenecking the VGA since you game @ low res ... just my 2c

I wonder how high it would go with both mem and core OC'd at maximum.
