Summary: Really pleased with this purchase. It works very well for the limited gaming that I do. Game settings now at highest possible ( had numerous problems with original graphics card even at low game settings ) and performance is great. Install is easy, no fan to cause noise problems. Please see my review on Crucial memory for what I thought was a graphics card problem.
Summary: I use this in a HTPC running VSpere and Win2012. Windows Server can not run the full AMD software package, but I've had little problem running it with just the drivers. The only issues were that I had to disable the overscanning in the registry since I had no way to use the AMD software package, and that I had to find and install the HDMI audio drivers from the package. This didn't take long to figure out though.
Summary: I needed a low profile PCI-E for dual monitor support when my current one failed. This one had the advantage of dual DVI interfaces. I ended up with a clean setup and a painless device driver installation.
Summary: Installed this graphics card to replace my intergrated graphics in my desktop (HP p6740f)really made a huge difference in how quickly my computer displays images. Computer is greatly improved. I am not a PC Gamer, just an ordinary computer user.
Summary: My previousc1gb without hdmi went bad within 3 years. Got this for a cheaper price than it. I have a old windows Xp single CPU box which was very slow with on board graphics card. Now PC is fast as all the display work is done by the graphics card. We are not gamers and I have not used the HDMI.
Summary: This card runs great on a 280 Watt slimline. My index score went from 4.1 to 5.9 on this card, it is A LOT quieter than an older model. Great card for any budget!! Gaming Specs: (With old processor, Athlon 64 X2) TF2: High Graphics 30-50 fps Fallout: NV- High 30 FPS Planetside 2 Low Graphics - 10 fps :( You really get a bang for your buck, i'll update as I play other games.
Summary: I am a big fan of XFX products. This XFX Radeon 6450 has a great picture and works well. XFX makes quality products. I love fan-less video cards. For the price you get a lot of bang for your bucks. Works well with Linux and Windows. The HDMI is a must have and 1 GB of memory gives excellent performance. I build a lot of computers and I use this XFX video card in most of my new builds.. I can depend on XFX products. You can not go wrong with this XFX Radeon 6450..
Summary: Let me first start by saying that I use Linux, so all of you Windows people may want to take this review with a grain of salt. Now that we have got that out of the way let me say that I love this card. I am not a big technology buff, but when my computer needs repairing I know how to open it up, find out what is wrong, and do the research to fix it.
