GeForce GTS 450 Performance Review

System Setup and Sotware List

We'll be running 5 games using the reference GTS 450.

Our review "software suite" consists of:
 
•    GeForce GPU driver v260.52
•    GeForce 3D Vision driver v260.52
•    Evga Precision 2.0.0
•    FRAPS 3.1.2 (March 4th)
•    Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit Service Pack 2
•    Mafia 2
•    Batman Arkham Asylum
•    BioShock 2
•    Metro 2033
•    Resident Evil 5
•    Unigine Heaven Benchmark 2.0


Our review hardware consists of (my PC):
 
•    CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700 @2,666MHz
•    Motherboard: MSI P7N SLI Platinum
•    GPUs: Reference GTS 450
•    Memory: 4GB (2x 2GB) Corsair Dominator PC2-8500 @800MHz
•    Hard Drive: Western Digital 250GB SATA 7,200RPM
•    PSU: Enermax Galaxy DXX 1,000 Watt
•    PC Monitor: Samsung 22" 2233RZ
•    GeForce 3D Vision Kit

Our testing methodology involves me playing a game and recording 2 minute sections using Fraps. I get at least 3 two minute runs and then I average the Minimum, Maximum and Average FPS numbers. The AA and AF settings in the Nvidia control panel were set to Application Controled because the GTS 450 is a midrange product meant for the average gamer.
