Default Re: Sparkle ONE GTS 450 1GB OC Single Slot Review

So now we have a low-profile version AND a single-slot version available. I expect that the GTS 550 will get the same treatment, albeit it will be released on-time, it will be more competitive, and might actually do a lot more to further the causes of SFF/HTPC gaming. ... I mean, heck, as it stands right now the GTS 450 even at stock speeds is a great basis for a 1280x720 --> 1680x1050 gaming setup, so the 550 ought to bring things up a notch or so, and likely perform like a GTX 460.
