is this card low profile?

is this card low profile?
yes click me for info

"Enclosure Type: Plug-in card - low profile"
#3
Would be perfect for a HTPC
#4
Would this work in a small form factor pc,like a hp dc7900 with a small power supply?
#5
Great for HD movies.
#6
So where's the HDMI output?
#7
I thought about getting one of these, even thought its pixmania its £20 cheaper than ebuyer. The problem i think i found is that its 'display port' output NOT hdmi. and disply port does not carry an audio signal so if i am correct that would mean no good for sending a pic through to my lcd tv?????.
#8
Awesome card for non-gaming Windows-based machines. Does everything you could possibly want it to do. I've got mine in my HTPC.

Not useful for gaming (well recent games anyway), and NVidia are better for Linux so avoid if you need it for those two scenarios.

Display port does possess the ability to carry audio. Furthermore, some implentations are compatible with HDMI. The official DisplayPort specification is NOT compatible with HDMI. However, some implementations are equipped with the extra circuitry to decode HDMI signals.

If the Displayport connection does not possess HDMI decoding, you can still connect this to an LCD TV via, DVI to HDMI, VGA to VGA or DVI-I to VGA.

I've got a Radeon x1950 which is pretty ancient now I guess and games aren't happy that I don't have directx 10 and only have 256 meg of ram. I've got no clue what to get next. Probably not this, it seems too cheap to be particularly powerful? I'll google it.

I could buy one and sell it on to you at say £100 if that would help.

Is this the faster card with passive cooling available?
#14
Its only 64bit, seems like it could be quite a bottleneck even for HD movies (1080p)
I could be totally wrong though?

Not even close. You can get passive 5750s which are probably as quick as it gets right now. Passive 4850s are pretty decent too, quicker than a 5670

No definitely not.

This is probably the fastest, but doesn't seem to be available in the UK right now:
http://www.guru3d.com/news/sapphire-fanless-radeon-hd5670/

This is one of the fastest fanless cards you can buy:
http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/products/vga-cards/zo-gt240

This is very slightly slower, but much better value:

The HD 5450 is not a card for gaming. If you are looking for a card to play games don't go for anything less than the hd4670.

this card good for gaming? like BFBC2?

Its not a gaming card really, it wont run modern games to match even the consoles generally.
banned#19
Here's the thing: this is a good price, thus a hot deal, HOWEVER this is Pixmania which is possibly one of the worst 'big name' electronics/computer suppliers around, thus a cold deal.
Hot minus Cold = neutral.

I assume therefore that I should not vote as it all cancels itself out.
Gotta love logic :(

We bought a lower spec (speed wise) ATI 5 series card for a relatives PC and it runs all modern games. Sure you have to turn the options down a bit here and there but it's ideal for a budget all-rounder/HTPC.
Pees all over the games he actually plays like Warhammer/craft, whatever
Plays HD 720p/1080i/1080p perfectly fine using either codecs in K-Lite Codec pack or Media Player Classic.

And this is higher spec!

Considering making the HTPC I've always wanted with one of these! :3

Warcraft especially.....is not a modern game. It wasnt modern in 2006. This card is generally minimum spec for several games out there now that require at least a geforce 8600. I would have to strongly disagree with you advising that it runs all modern games fine unless you include the idea that it runs them with settings and resolutions heavily lowered. Bare minimum, absolute to the bone for modern games

I have it's big brother, the HD 5570, installed in a small form factor dc7700 and it works perfectly.
I can't imagine the dc7900 PSU having problems with this

Just to note that this SKU 00 and 09 only have displayport and if you want audio you will have to buy a DP to HDMI adaptor (£6 ish ebay) if you want HD audio, so take this into account in the price. SKU 01 and 08 have native HDMI.

Also not for anybody thinking about eyefinity with this card. You either need to connect DVI, VGA and use a passive DP to VGA adapter (so no sound) or Sapphires active DP to DVI adapter which costs a whopping £80!! Again no sound.

But if your happy to use the audio outs on your motherboard then these wont be an issue.

As for games, things like WOW and sims and thing like that will play fine. FPS will wont be great as the card is not powerful enough for high resolutions and high game settings. Though things like COD should be playable at 720p on med settings.

As for passive gaming cards. The HD 5670 should be hitting the shops now and Powercolor do a HD 5750 passive, although it's not available in the UK at the moment (just far east and US) due to product availability.

Please re-read my comments properly:p

The lower spec card we bought was tested by ourselves on a fair selection of modern games, it worked fine. Like I said, you have to turn the odd option down here and there but again like I said it's perfectly suitable for a budget all-rounder!

The comment about, warcraft/hammer/geeks-chat-up-simulator was purely a true indication of the day-to-day use of the actual card at present. and it does, literately pee all over it!

This is a higher spec card all-round that the 5-series we bought for the lad... thus in theory, should be better.

As with the internet these days, most will ask the question: "What will run HD movies and Solitaire in Windows 7?" to which guys like you reply "A fire breathing GeForce 480GTX in quad SLI is the only option!" at a cost of £1600 for the cards alone.

Cards like this 5450 are ideal for those who want a general purpose, all-round PC on a budget.
They will run HD movies perfectly fine, they will work with Windows Vista and 7 with all the fancy graphics fine, they are a much better option than most on-board solutions and they will play nearly all modern games perfectly fine.
Yes, you are not going to see the full effect of a large amount of these modern games due to to the need for turning settings down. But the games will still run and still be playable

If you wanted a card purely for gaming, I wouldn't recommend this card.
Like I have already said 3 times after this sentence to ensure the Muppet I'm replying to gets the message, I would recommend this card for a budget all-rounder/HTPC

hmm - is this a better performer than my old nvidia 7800GT? the specs look poorer apart from the core clock speed and memory clock

I recently ordered the deal above, also from Pixmania. This is my second experience with Pix and I have to say its absolutely horrid. The graphics card I ordered was instock when I ordered it and now they are saying its ' temporarily out of stock' and any email equires I have get responded to with badly worded and taken from a template emails that don't really answer my questions. Avoid Pixmania.

I read perfectly fine. Now as you have responded with malice and insults, I shall correct you again. THIS. CARD. IS. NOT. MINIMUM. FOR. SEVERAL. MODERN. GAMES. This is the SAME response i gave when in your first reply, you claimed it would run ALL modern games fine with lowered settings, but yet now decide to qualify it with the words 'NEARLY ALL'. I disagreed with your original statement that ALL will run fine, as now some recent demanding games and upcoming games this year this does not meet minimum spec.

Such as: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/xfx_radeon_5450/12.htm
And: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/xfx_radeon_5450/7.htm
And: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/xfx_radeon_5450/6.htm

etc etc.....

Im happy that my comment encouraged you to review your original statement for accuracy.

I wanted to make that quite, quite clear, just for you my lad. Respond with more insults, you'll be reported

You forgot the "h" in your link for the 4670 - http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/products/vga-cards/sap-hd4670-ult

I bought a passive 4670 to replace my noisy 8800GT- works great for everything I throw at it... . http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sapphire-hd4670-512mb-pci-e-ultimat/685772

Oh forgot to say, buy from these cowboys at your own peril! Seriously, one of the worst companies Iv'e had the misfortune of dealing with.
They are not based in the UK, they are based in France, I made the wrong assumption in thinking they are UK based as their website is .co.uk, prices in £ and 0844 telephone numbers. So bare that in mind especially if things were to go wrong!

Thanks for the pointers, I've been looking for some reviews of fanless graphics cards but it's challenging. I think I might go for that hd4670.

Yadda, Yadda, Yadda, Yawn...

1. I did not review my statement, more elaborated on it.
2. The 5-series card I was referring to before was a HD 5350 (this being a 5450)
3. Report me all you like, it sadly won't remove you from the internet... :(

This ladies and gents is the true problem with the internet. Especially when it comes to advice.
You'll end up with idiots like the gentleman above claiming his wisdom is better than everyone elses and would argue the toss.
Like an Atheist would to a Vicar...

EDIT:
In fear of this post being labelled an epic failure... I was incorrect on the card I mentioned before. It's actually a HIS ATI HD 4350 passive.
#36
Looks a great deal.. just a word of caution about Pixmania. When I've used them before, I found their quoted delivery times were wildly optimistic, and when I had to complain on one occasion about a very late delivery, they didn't even bother replying.

Thanks for this! This thread has prompted me to replace my old and noisy ATI. It'd be good to find a 5670 passive or 5750 as in the above reply. Will look at comparison tables now. Having said this I am really annoyed by the terrible support ATI have for linux.
