HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) technology TM TM 1.2. Minimum System Requirements · Hardware - 400-watt system power supply
specification or above is recommended - Intel® Pentium® 4 or AMD Athlon XP class processor or higher - 1GB system memory (2GB recommended) Optical drive for software installation (CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive) TM · Operating System - Windows® 7 - Windows® Vista - Windows® XP SLI
Configuration If you are planning on using this graphics card as part of an SLI system, the following are required: - An SLI certified motherboard with two
PCIe x16 slots and correct chipset driver - Two GV-N450-1GI / GV-N450-512I for SLI configuration; - A power supply with 600-watt or above is
recommended - An SLI bridge connector TM · (Note 1) SLI technology requires a PCI Express motherboard with two x16 physical connectors. Graphics
cards working in an SLI configuration must be with the same model name (e.g. GV-N450-1GI /GV-N450-512I) and from the same vendor (e.g. GIGABYTE
TECHNOLOGY). -5Introduction 2. Hardware Installation 2.
