Hello everyone, I am currently looking at purchasing an XFX Radeon HD4550 from Aria (link below) and would kindly ask for your opinions on said graphics card. I'm not a heavy gamer and will be using it to play Team Fortress 2 and APB (All Points Bulletin, when it comes out) and some slightly older games.

Has anyone had experience with this graphics card and if so how does it fair for you? My system specs as of right now are this:

Dell Dimension E521
AMD Athlon II 64x2 @ 4200Ghz
ATI Radeon X1300 (Very old I know)
305W Dell PSU

Those are the necessary specs I think you may need but feel free to ask more.

Thankyou for your time. :-)

I'd get this … I'd get this instead:

How does this fair against the HD4550, in terms of performance and power usage?


the ati blows away the nvidia!

anyway the psu limits you, although i own a 4550, i dont know what games it plays (dont use it for that)
