Silent is reliable and perfect for me

Stephanie Sullivan, Amazon
12 July 2014
  • 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.

Needed cheapest card I could find

John C., Newegg
27 February 2012
  • Summary: I had a weird requirement. Had a mobo without a video card for a headless box. I only needed to attach a monitor for the install. It is quiet and doesn't run hot.
  • Pros: Works on my proxmox box. Quiet, good choice of outputs. I guess...
  • Cons: Definately wouldn't game with this.

Good card for older systems

JP, Amazon
18 January 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for a HD HDMI video card (with surround sound) that would work with an old computer/bios. While doing some research and reading many online accounts, I saw that many cards that are PCIe 2.0 or 2.1 would not work with with motherboards that were PCIe 1.0...

The perfect upgrade for your older computer.

I. Inc, Amazon
18 November 2011
  • Summary: First: I'm not a gamer. I don't care about getting 1000 frames per second in Gears of War volume 45. I've been using a 6 year old Dell Optiplex GX280 as a sort of "extented Roku box" in the living room.

Works Perfectly for a 32 bit Graphics Card

Lyokokrill, Amazon
5 October 2011
  • Summary: The reasoning behind this card only gaining 3 stars is baffling. Just because this isn't a 64 bit or 128 bit doesn't mean this card isn't good! For any computer running with a 32 bit architecture, this card fits!

Be warned!

Dustin Cowles, Amazon
23 June 2011
  • Summary: The price is low, but this card only has a 32-bit memory bus and will be quite a bit slower than other HD6450's. I recommend spending a few more dollars and getting a model with 64-bit or 128-bit memory bus.

OK for office use

T.J. S., Newegg
8 June 2011
  • Summary: After doing a bit more research, discovered I could have gotten a much better card for just a couple of bucks more - I'm taking two stars off for buyer's remorse and overall value.
  • Pros: Drives two monitors for basic office use with no problem Bought on sale for a great price.
  • Cons: none - it's biggest drawback (32-bit performance) is clearly disclosed in the item listing.

Terrible for HTPC

Nicholas B., Newegg
31 May 2011
  • Summary: Newegg rocks...let me return the card no questions. Gotta love the Egg's service :) :)
  • Pros: None, given how its priced
  • Cons: 32 bit memory bus cripples the card's capabilities and buggy drivers kill it. I had the same experience with 7MC as another reviewer. Replaced with a GT430 and am loving my HTPC again.

Junk

Jeff J., Newegg

  • Pros: Passive, low profile.
  • Cons: Needed card for 2 vga monitors. Dvi port will not display vga with dvi-vga adapter. Tried 2 different monitors, 7 different dvi to vga adapters. No dice.

Agree with previous reviewer

Andrew S., Newegg
26 May 2011
  • Summary: I traded this card in for an HD 6570 which now I think is the right card for an HTPC. The GDDR3 version has a pretty low TDB and still has enough oomph to do a few other things like display overlay menus while decoding UVD 3.0 HD video.
  • Pros: the HD 6450 reference design is supposed to be pretty good for video applications, but this card is not a reference design. As the previous reviewer meantioned it uses 512 mb of 32 bit memory. the reference design is either 512 of GDDR 5 or 1GB of 64 bit GDDR 3. (According to Anandtech, GDDR 3 ac...
  • Cons: The reason I'm not satisfied with this card is that when using Windows Media Center, it can't keep up with the overlay menus while an HDTV stream is displayed at the same time. I might be able to deal with HD video OK when there's nothing else going on, but, at least with the current drivers, it ...
