my son wants a cheap gpu for his computer to play some games. Would this run fallout 3? Doesn't have to be on high end settings like. His computer is decent, only got it at christmas. core 2 duo with 4gb ram.

Not very well, these things no better than HD 4550's. A shame really, as I want a fairly decent low profile ATI card.
The only plus point these have is DX11, but seeing as they perform so poorly even that seems pointless.

The 5450 is really only aimed at HTPC's, for gaming they are awful, what's your budget?

Here is a good article on the HD5450, it's really aimed at HTPC use rather than gaming:

The more powerful HD5570 should be available tomorrow.

Ooh, rep for the heads up. Hopefully it's a fair bit more powerful than my old 4550. The ability to play a few games on the HTPC would be a bonus.

This is going straight into my media 'puter.

I have recently purchased an XFX 4650 1GB for my pc and i am now going to upgrade my fathers pc with a new graphics card

Only played F.U.E.L so far and it plays it perfect no problems at all.

after sourcing 4gb of ram for £2.97 + 1.50 p&p off ebay (beat that) guy had not got a clue what he was selling.

Would you recommend this card or buy another 4650 as they are about the same price.

I have heard Sapphire are a rubbish make, and XFX are much better quality and after inspecting my XFX card the quality is superb

Untrue. Both very reliable and innovative manufacturers of cards.

Get the 4650. And don't know where you heard bad things about Sapphire cards, but I've owned a few over the years and they've always been fine.
#11
Sapphire are generally good but some of their HD 4xxx series cards didn’t support any form of fan control so they were very noisy cards which has tarnished their reputation in my eyes. I’d buy a passive Sapphire card though. :)

It's a completely different card. This is an HTPC or budget card with not much processing power but low power consumption and all the other abilities of a discrete graphics card like multiple monitor support and HD Video decoding support while the 4770 is for those who run applications that make use of the video card's 3d processing power like games, CAD or photoshop.

It'll probably play it if you turn down the graphical options and use a low resolution but buying this card for gaming is shooting yourself in the foot. It's very poor value for money and if you spend twice as much you get a mainstream card that's four or five times as fast. e.g. a Radeon 4850 or the recently posted ~£60 GTS 250 if it's still available.

I believe the Warranty offered by Sapphire is better than that of XFX.

Hmmm... hoping for a nice deal on a HD 5770... fingers crossed!

Well, no doubt you have heard the card you DIDN'T buy is inferior to the one you did...like many others who post on here...the card you bought is SOOOOO much better than AN Other card...much better quality, lovingly hand crafted ...yadda yadda yadda...:whistling:;-)

Fact is Sapphire are equally as good as XFX..... they're both fairly basic, but very decent for the money, cards...
#16
Cards from all manufacturers are pretty good because they are all the same tech stuck on them, just different software and branding.

I would pick Sapphire over XFX any day. After having there 4890 die on me and then when trying to get it RMA'd found out that in Europe they are under no obligation to RMA it. And basically said go away and speak to the place you bought it from and if you cant then too bad. Yet in the states they not only give a full warranty but it is a double lifetime one. Imho dont buy XFX cards at all, if you can settle for an alternative.
#18
Nice budget card if you're not going to be gaming. Power consumption looks excellent too :thumbsup:

Wonder if it would be worth running one along side my 5850 for general web browsing etc... Suppose it depends if I can full disable one card at a time to maintain the 16x PCI slot speed on the 5850 when required.

As others have mentioned, there's nothing wrong with Sapphire branded cards.
#19
Excellent price. Bought one last week on Scan for ~ £45 inc. P&P.

Ideal for HTPC / media PC setups.

Voted hot.
#20
Just what I was looking for thanks!

So this card will be suitable for Photoshop and Video editing etc?

Its not so important, but any idea if this card would be able to handle Eve Online?
The only game I really play off Console :P
suspended#21
as others have stated, the ATI 5570 is a better card for gaming, it came out today, its around £72. This card is meant for htpc or just regular pc use and for playing blurays.

As for photoshop... i believe that photoshop cs4 doesn't use the gpu at all so that shouldn't have any effect at all. Photoshop CS5 out this year will let nvidia gpu's do some of the processing so maybe consider an nvidia card if you plan on upgrading to photoshop cs5.

Ace price for an htpc card with hd audio bitstreaming, hope nvidia's cheapest fermi card is this price as i want htpc BUT with CUDA, nothing support's ATI's version of CUDA (named ATI STREAM) so for me this card isn't worth it.
#22
Does anyone know if you have 2 monitors on this at the same time? I only need a graphics card for that reason. I dont play games etc.

For the price and given they are not passive (i.e. silent) unless you need a low-profile card then the 5670 would seem to be a better buy.

Pretty extensive review: http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/sapphire_radeon_hd5450_512mb/

It appears to support Eyefinity for running three monitors. Display ports are 1x HDMI, 1x DVI and 1x VGA, which may or may not affect your decision.

'64bit DDR3'

I'd rather buy a 7900GT.

still not a bad deal though

The 4650 is a much better card for gaming and available direct from XFX for that price. I was really surprised that the offer did so poorly when listed as it is a top deal for a budget gamer. This card would be better for someone who was not planning on gaming as it is smaller, uses less power and has no fan. It is also better if you are using your PC as a media center hooked up to a modern AV Amp as it will work with all Blu-Ray Audio types. That said if I wasn't gaming or was using a machine for home cinema only I would look to get that functionality into my motherboad and save some cash.

As for brands, they are both basic warranty but decent quality cards. On something in this price range I would always buy the cheapest card that met my required specs. I have used most manufacturers and it is only worth watching the make on the expensive cards as the warranty can be important. BFG and EVGA for instance have great reputation for service and give long warranties.
#27
5570 isnt even as fast as 4670 :x 4670 is twenty quid cheaper, which at this pricepoint is massive- costing 30 percent less for a considerably faster although older generation Ati card. I know where my money would be going if i was into gaming on a budget. On a DDR3 4670....

I almost fell off my chair when I saw the price. Then I realised it was a 5570 you linked to, not a 5770 :p

That would have been a ridiculous bargain, I would have immediately bought two for Crossfiring.

Spotted that earlier and ordered myself one. Will be able to play fairly decent games on my HTPC at last.
Although the ETA is a joke, seeing as today was the products launch date...
#33
Do the 5000 series drivers suffer the same bug as the 3000 and 4000 series in that they can't decode BBC HD? Makes it somewhat pointless for a media center if using over the air HD channels.
ITV hd works fine.

I have HEARD !! therefore was asking other peoples opions, (i suppose you have a Sapphire hence jumping to it defense) My Dads bigger than your Dad, LOL

I would have considered the sapphire card if the recommendations said so, hence asking peoples opions.

Anyway i think i known a little bit about PCB's and build quality since i used to Build and Test boards for Sun Microsystems (google them if you aint got a clue) i dont think you will be giong out an buying one of there systems with your pocket money.

Anyway i like the look of my card, no stupid pointless fancy heatsink, and wierd fans and pretty anim characters, just a proffesional functional card no carp. All surface mount components no old school through hole stuff except the connectors of course.

Arrived today and have managed to get it to bitstream Tru-HD and DTS-HD from PowerDVD to my Denon 3808.

My Graphics card has just gone on my PC (A Black screen just saying NO SIGNAL) I have tried another monitor & lead but still the same, HP online help seem to think it's the Graphics card??
knowing nothing about this side of things can someone tell me if I can get any Graphics card & replace it myself? or do Pc's have their own G Card & I would need a particular replacement?
I have a pavilion slimline S3000
Any help appreciated!

Hi Snowy!

No, PC's can take any Graphics card, however there are a couple of things to take into account. PC's come in various "forms", i.e. sizes. Some will required slim form graphics cards others need the full on fat boy ones.
Power can be another factor. Your PC's PSU needs to be able to handle all the various components e.g. disk, processor . . . Add in a power hungry card and it might overload the power supply. I would think that unless you go for the latest / greatest G card, that's reather unlikely.
Finally what you want to do with it matters. Playing the latest games will mean you need a powerful GPU, adding to your 15k posts here will mean abasic GPU should suffice :-D
This one seems good enough, there are others posted.
Hope this has helped.
