Summary: I have being using it for about 1 month now. Won't give it 5 star since there's once where after I shut down my PC the video won't come back on. Unplug and replug monitor seems to have mitigated it, I don't know the real cause.
Summary: for a 40$ graphics card it does its job, TF2, Minecraft, or just about any source game(games by valve) it will take on the highest settings. I have this card for a budget build. im running a 8 core 8350 FX with this and as you can see, the gpu is a major bottleneck.
Summary: The missing star is for the confusing install process, details below. The outcome is I get to use my new Vizio TV as computer monitor, via its hdmi input, 1920x1080 and beautiful. I'm not a gamer, don't care about speed, just didn't want to buy a tv and monitor both, for the same location.
Summary: This graphics card is a huge improvement over the integrated graphics chip set in my Dell computer. It is very fast, very high definition (1900 x 900 pixels) and takes a big load off the main processor and its RAM.
Summary: Sapphire Radeon HD 6450 1 GB DDR3 HDMI/DVI-D/VGA PCI-Express Graphics Card 100322LSapphire Radeon HD 6450 1 GB DDR3 HDMI/DVI-D/VGA PCI-Express Graphics Card 100322LPut this in a 2010 Hp slimline 4 core w/Athlon Phenom IIx4 that had Nvidea 6450se on board graphic chip with only 1 VGA output.
Summary: Under powered for gaming, but works fine for BluRay player in HTPC. I have not noticed any artifacting on playback. Has low current draw so works with stock power supply. In my Dell it mounts upside down in the tower case, so I added a small CPU clip on cooling fan. Keeps the temperature very cool.
