Top customer reviews
For example my vga is built on the motherboard and would take an average of 8+ hours to encode a 2hr movie at 720p, it's was horrible in that aspect.
When I encode the same movie with the Asus GTS450 & CUDA Acceleration enabled, it's down to 28 minutes. It's just unbelievable!! This is a stock graphics card at stock speeds & no overclocking. Install most 3rd party video converting software that uses CUDA-enabled video encoding technology, and you're good to go.
My windows experience index went from a 4.9 to a whopping 7.3 and overall I notice big boost in my system performance using my old Intel based mobo, Core2 Duo Processor,4gb RAM, BD Player, 2TB HD, 550w PS & 22" monitor and Win7 x64 Ulimate edition.
Please note, you will need extra power from a 6-pin connector to run this card. This card does come with a power adapter - if your power supply does not have a cable with that 6pin PCIe connector. This adapter takes two 4pin molex connectors and converts to one 6pin PCIe connector. I have a 550w ps and it worked fine.
No regrets with this purchase. I did consider the GTX460 for a $100 more, but you would need two (2) 6pin PCIe connectors to power it up, and I would had to dump another $100+ for a beefier power supply. This would of put me way over budget.
I am surprised that no effort was made to exhaust the heat in the back of the PC. This card seems to dump heat in the PC case, despite the fact it takes two slots, one filled with just vents. Fan will throttle up/down with load, but even at full throttle it is very quiet. Verify your power supply will support it before purchasing. I believe before attempting to play with overclocking and overvolting, one would get more speed by looking for the factory overclocked versions of this card (810 MHz, 850MHz & 933 MHz)
