As the Fermi range of GPUs from nVidia starts to mature, more and more variants are appearing. We look at the GTS450 AMP! from Zotac.

Doesnt overclock for toffee tbh. For F@H you are much better off with a 460 as this is a cut too far imho.

Aaa yea almost any (if not any) GTX460 overclock like crazy add a little voltage and go on!

shame these overclock like poo...

BTW i love this what you wrote,

"Folding is hugely popular (join our Redline @ OC3D Folding team, plug plug)

and the GTS250 has a good showing here being just under a stock 460, and when overclocked getting up near 9000 PPD."

Nice looking card. It'll need to be about £90 to be viable though.

If not then I don't know why Nvidia even bothered with this tbh. I'm sure PC World will sell a few, but any one who can use a web browser is soon going to realise that they're better off with a 460.

This particular one overclocks like poo, but from the stock clock the overclock on this card is actually very impressive. Sadly as Tom pointed out that will add price, which then takes it into 5770 and then 460 territory where it is way out of its depth.

I do really like the cooler though.
