  • Summary: Great card for the price. If you're on a budget, and would rather just play a game than to play it at the highest detail level, then this is for you. I recommend this card to anyone needing an upgrade, or someone on a budget. Money well spent in my book.
  • Pros: Affordability. Definitely worth the money. I'm not a heavy gamer, but the games I do play, it handles it with relative ease. No stuttering on video playback. Screen is set to 1920x1080 on just about everything I do.
  • Cons: None really - I didn't buy this expecting it to be a world of difference, just as a temporary upgrade until I bought the PC I am building.

great card for the price

  • Summary: I bought this card as a upgrade from a Radeon hd 3450. I mainly use it for online gaming and photoshop work. The games I have played so far are Star Wars TOR, Jedi academy 3, Star Trek Online, Silent Hill 3, War Thunder. The card is easily overclockable as I have it running 110 MHz over.
  • Pros: Does exactly what its rated for Quiet Installs easily
  • Cons: None

  • Pros: Installed it in a refurbished SFF desktop. Many notes about using these fanless 5450 cards in PCs mentioned heating. I also fabricated a mount for a (full height) slot cooler to sit against the top and suck warm air from near the CPU and exhaust it out the back. The only real graphics intensive a...
  • Cons: Nothing noted.

Great upgrade for that old pc.

  • Summary: I fixed the heat issue by puting a fan facing and fixing cables. you dont have to have a fan on it but i did it just because i dont like heat.
  • Pros: The card paired greatly with a old intel core 2 quad q6600. This card is not top of the line by far but it allowed me to watch full 1080p movies and play popular mmo`s at full resoultion.( on a 42inch tv)it was a great upgrade for the price and runs just as well as my i5-4670k`s on board graphics...
  • Cons: It does get a little hot but thats expected, and the heat sink sucks this is why i drop it an egg but besides that nothing.

Good extreme budget card

  • Pros: Very cheap, 30 bucks. Play 1080p videos perfectly in VLC, and I'm talking HQ Raw Blu-Rays at 1080p resolutions. Stays cool, good for average computing. Unusable on most games out there today, as to be expected. If you simply need a video card for computing without gaming, this one is pretty good ...

Good Video Card

  • Summary: I got this card as a temporary replacement after my old graphics card finally died after 5 years. This was a cheap, yet good quality replacement while I look for another card. I haven't tried it with any gaming, but I will definitely keep it as a backup or use it for a second monitor.
  • Pros: Worked out of the box. Good price.
  • Cons: None.

  • Pros: Works Well, No Problem, and passes everything necessary for an HTPC with cablecard tuner system - ( all that DRM(DigitalRightsManagement, HDCP(HiDefContentProtection), PlayReady stuff that's required for Premium content ) . And its a respectable Vid card too...
  • Cons: Digital Rights Management, etc is Way Outa Control!!! (if anything hardware in your computer changes - Oops! cant even play your own recordings!!! (but that's not this cards fault)

  • Pros: Does what it says on the tin. Many connectors for happy multiple monitor times. I'm using it for a DAW, so it's probably more performance than I need. Low profile also helps, and it comes with brackets to move the VGA port, which is nice. Not nvidia, so getting it working nice under Linux has not...
  • Cons: Bit hot, but no surprise there. VGA connector could stand to be a bit longer.
