As title states. This is even better than my previous post for a G210.

I believe there is 7.1 ch surround support via HDMI but am unsure of any of this DTS / Dolby stuff. Just having sound support was good enough for me.

Perfect for a media server / PC running a Linux distro, otherwise you are better off with an AMD ATI solution eg HD5450.

Please note this is GDDR3 so will perform much better than the GDDR2 equivalents. Also this is the same price if not cheaper than many of the GDDR2 variants on sale. Hope this helps someone!

Low profile brackets are included.

Would this be an improvement for my sone over his current ATI 4670?
#2
Theoretically, I suspect no:

But in the real world?

For people out there with my problems too, please refer to post #3 to solve the issue. Ensure you add playhw:0.7 into the audio output for XBMC.

Bargain nice to see a good low profile card.

I currently have a 4350 ATI which keeps dropping the 7.1 through the HDMI. Would this be a good step forward or is it the same problem that exists in all cards? thanks in advance!

the GT 520 will replace this within the next few weeks which will be faster, use less power etc so you might be best off waiting for that.
#7
simple question...

is this better than an asus 512mb 7600GT?

No don't be silly, I'd imagine a used 4670 would cost over 30 quid.

The 7600gt - performance wise probably not, this card is NO GOOD FOR GAMING. Id say you'd want at least a gt240. However it would use less power and be much better for media center use cus of hdmi audio and its quietness.

Also if you have a core duo desktop (i.e not an I3 or i5 etc) with intergrated or Intel graphics, chuck this in for a nice performance boost in Windows.

Hi,
I've got a Zotac H55 with Core i5 650 - don't suppose I'd benefit much from adding this discrete?

As said above, the 210 will be next to useless for gaming.
I'd get the 5450 for same price at ebuyer plus postage, always preferred them over nvidia for media center use. For a low profile gaming capable card, the 5570 is £47.

As some people have pointed out, this is absolutely useless for gaming. Only get this if you have a media pc / want one. Didn't know about the GT520 but since getting this to work in XBMC on Ubuntu running on a HP Microserver, I can't complain!

I'll stress again, only get this if you are running Ubuntu, for Windows based desktop OS's such as Vista, 7 please buy the HD5450, a much better card for the same price.

5770 kicks ass as a gamer & low power consumption. this ones to compete against 5450 & stuff
#16
To give you an idea here for power - this card has a mere 16 cores.

The 320M in older MacBooks has 48 cores

The GTX 480 has 480 cores

I was considering buying it for dedicated Physx but it doesn't even meet the criteria for that! Pay an extra £20 or so and you'll get an order of magnitude more power, honestly!

But, as others have said, if you're not gaming or doing anything graphically intensive, it'll do.
#17
great for a server card, if your cheap ass mobo doesnt do onboard!
#18
I didn't know you can buy graphics cards and set them as dedicated Physx. Does it really make much of a difference as compared to just using it as normal?
#19
For the question about sound. Yes HDMI will carry DTS/DOLBY 7.1 sound, as long as your amp can receive it, your source carries it and you use the right player like MPC-HC. So good for any media server.
#20
sorry for the dumb question.. but can i sli these? if so - would sli - ing three of these let me game?

No, and even if you could, you'd only end up with a measly 48 cores between the three cards - you're best putting the money towards a cheap GTX 460
#22
Currently using a ATI4830 512mb and thats selling for ~£50 mark if you want to game i would recommend that to be honest currently playing through crysis everything on high @ 1680x rez
#23
A nice price for a budget card

Only for games that employ hardware-based PhsyX, which is criminally few.
#25
I have the same card but the XFX version in my media center runining Windows 7 MC and this card will do full 1080p 7.1/DTS and HD audio if your amp can take it. Only thing i find is the fan can get a little noisy when in full HD but u cant moan for that money.
#26
Scan have changed their today only but now there is a 512MB XFX HD 5450 for £23.99. How does that compare?

I would buy that instead, as long as it is GDDR3 memory...and you aren't intending on using it with Linux.
