  • Summary: I purchased this card to replace an old AMD HD 2400 Pro which seemed to have problems with some 3D layout programs. The running temperature of this card is highly dependent on PC case, fans, and airflow. In my Dell XPS 420 the HD 5450's heatsink is much too small to maintain low temps. The idle temp was 55 deg C. Running FurMark, the temps reached into the low 80's. I removed the heatsink, cleaned all mounting surfaces, applied Arctic 5, and reassembled.

  • Summary: This guy is only slightly more powerful than your average integrated graphics, possibly worse. Its main advantage is it's ability to be overclocked. From my experience, this card can be stably overclocked for 45% more power, given that you can find an effective way to cool it. Also, this card frequently goes on sale on some sites. I've seen it being sold for as low as $10.

It was easy to install and works great

  • Summary: I purchased this to replace a failing graphics card. I looked for one similar to the original build in my computer for compatibility. It was easy to install and works great. No more overheating or forced shutdowns here. The price was right as it was much cheaper than sending the computer out for repairs or purchasing a new pc.

Met my needs, no unexpected problems

  • Summary: I have now installed 2 of these cards, both in similar HP Compaq low profile desktop machines originally used for business. I needed to add some hardware graphics while staying within the low profile case and not exceeding the capability of the small outline power supply or my budget. Being more skilled than most purchasers, I selected this GPU as a compromise between speed, power drain, excessive heat to get rid of. Installation was not too bad.

graphics are great for online play.

  • Summary: I could play World of Warcraft now in the high setting and have a decent FPS. If you want an upgrade, but don't need ultra settings for the graphics, then this video card is for you. Plus, it's "green" to save the earth lmao, SO it's fine with me.

HAPPY I MADE THIS CHOICE

  • Summary: Was having issues with my Dell Dimension e510 cpu. Went to restart my computer one day after a cleaning and monitor would not cut back on. At first I wasn't sure if it was my Acer monitor or my gfx card. After hours of doing research on distinguishing the two (problems can be similar) I decided to shop for a new graphics card and came across this one. The shipping was fast and installation was faster.
