XFX HD 5450 Review


With nVidia's first DX11 graphics cards on shelves now and mainstream offerings forthcoming, the DX11 market is finally starting to see some competition. Still, ATI has quite the headstart and for the time being nVidia is still left battling ATI's...

Low-profile ; Low power requirement ; ATI Stream technology ; ATI Avivo ; Great performance for $60 ; Life-time warranty ; 1GB of memory

Small performance upgrade from HD 4550 & new IGPs

Almost every household has at least one personal computer these days and let's face it, very few of these systems are used for gaming. They are instead being used for editing photos, watching home movies, streaming HD content or surfing the net. For...

Nightmare installation on XP


If the item worked properly with my setup it would have all the features I want. However, 4 hours and a boot corruption later item still wouldn't work properly in anything other than 800x600. I would lose all video after boot. Similar reviews all over...

Excellent deal for HTPC


Installed it on a 5 years old uATX PC. Had to update the BIOS so the BIOS could boot correctly. At 20$, it's an awesome deal. I love having only one HDMI cable from my PC to my TV that deliver image and sound. The only thing that I don't understand is...

Caused me headaches


I purchased this card to replace my nVidia card that I overheated. After installation of this card, I would get pink spots in random patterns over the screen. Previous to the installation, I had a very stable system, but afterwards, I had numerous blue...

Great Value for Dual Monitor setup


Worked well for me on business workstation.

Great value!


Purchased for single purpose - World of Warplanes on i5 Win7 64 bit computer. Does a wonderful job - not fancy, but not expensive either. The CD utilities work well.

Works as advertised


Just needed a cheap card to put in a small server. It does exactly as advertised.

Came with a shim for both low profile and full profile ; The pictures do not seem to reflect what I received. The heatsink is now flush with the PCB and will fit in a low profile case if you're using one. Of course, with no fan it is super silent

Heatsink will burn you if touched. I hope this card lasts despite the heat output. I wish there was some way to make the card relax, it's just for displaying a terminal on a monitor

Decent card for the price


Installed this card on an Asus M3A78-EM, with Windows 7 64bit and I get a reader of 4.3 for Desktop areo and 6.0 for gaming graphics. Also, the video has many overclock options you can access with the software, and i like it.

Does the Job


Purchased this to give our secretary dual monitor capabilities. She loves it. Nothing heavy duty or graphic intensive has been tested with this card in place. But it smoothly handles standard day to day applications.It came with the DMS-59 cable that...

Perfect for HTPC


I installed this into an older Dell running a AMD 64 x2 that I am using as an HTPC. Prior to this I was running an older 128mb card and this was a major boost. No more stuttering, and it really brought my old PC back to life. I did have a minor problem...
