GT450 better or 9800GT?
GTS450 not GT450....

Just wondering as i need to buy a graphics card for a computer i'me working on and cant believe how closely matched prices are to most nvidia cards even though they offer different performance...

Also my psu dos'nt have a 6 pin connector would a 4 Pin To 6 Pin Power Adapter be suitable, my psu is 550 watt with spare 4 pin connectors.
Link for the pin connectors i found on amazon[url="https://www.amazon.co.uk/NEW-PCI-Express-Power-Adapter/dp/B000WOQSSC/ref=sr_1_12?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1293290293&sr=1-12"]Amazon link for pin connectors[/url]
And finally, the Rig i'me working on, heres the specs.

Core 2 duo 1.86ghz
2 Gig DDR2 Ran
Vista Home Premium

Advice would be great, my monitor runs at 1600x900 but when i play games i tend to just play at 1280x720.

Thankyou.

Yes, I have 2 x MSI 450 GTS SLI and it's runs great on 1680x1050 everything max on BCFC2 runs butter.

I also OC from 850 core to (900-950) testing, right now best stable for me 935 core, 2100 memory.

A better PSU should be no problem.

BTW, my PSU BFG 1000 watt sweet.
