Summary: Works well, has some great software for tweaking settings that cost a lot more with some other cards. Same great Asus quality, lower price than some similar 1GB cards. Probably not the best choice for intense gaming however.
Summary: I got this card to replace the broken video card in my brother's PC. It had a failed fan and cooked. Ouch. With this ASUS AMD Radeon Silent series the risk of fan failure on the video card is eliminated and the system is even more quiet. For his use this card has more than enough power. He uses his computer for email, web surfing, and working with documents in word or running applications like turbo tax.
Summary: I bought this Video card for a HTPC, silent and output was great for what i needed. Worked flawlessly for 3 years of pretty much constant use and then started glitching. Not bad for $40. I just purchased the same one for a replacement.
Summary: I am using these cards for Dell Optiplex GX 620 and 745 models (desktop size and small form factor). Why use this card? Low power supply consumption, quiet, 1024 DDR3, and it fits. Also, the card has VGA, DVI and HDMI connections to hook up video monitor, TV etc. Great price. Amazon prime shipping too!
Summary: I got this to use in a compact desktop that is used as a basic media center using a HD TV. Space inside the computer case is limited as is the power supply. Windows 7 recognized the card and automatically loaded the driver. It made a noticable improvement over the on board graphics. I was a little afraid even this card might overtax the power supply but, after several months, it's working fine. I suspect anything very demanding might cause some overheating though.
Summary: I just purchased this HD5450 video card I took it rite out of the box installed it in second's. The software was so simple. Video card performs really well so far. For the price I can't complain. Fits my budget.
