5 out of 5 eggsNice budget card

Pros: Good price
fanless = silent
low-profile bracket
Easy install

Cons: Runs quite warm
Not suitable for gaming, if that's your thing

Other Thoughts: Tested on Windows XP, Win7, and Win8 - all without problems, even with dual display. Mostly used for HTPC running Kodi, and it played 1080p video flawlessly. Make sure you have adequate airflow through your case, especially if it's a smaller form factor like mine.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent card

Pros: Relatively inexpensive; supports two monitors

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought a PowerColor Go! Green Radeon HD 5450 (Cedar) AX5450 1GBK3-SH 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 and a SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 at about the same time. After taking into account the rebates (both had one) the PowerColor was about 1/2 the Sapphire at the time I bought them.

They both come with AMD drivers and Catalyst Control Center which you can use to check clock settings and temperature, among other things. The PowerColor card supports the AMD function that will automatically test and set a recommended GPU and memory clock settings. That feature didn't appear on the display for the Sapphire card.

The AMD Overdrive choice for the PowerColor was about 20% higher on the GPU and 10% higher than the defaults. But when I left it there one of the displays flickered every couple of seconds so I set it back to the factory default.
You can set both cards' gpu and memory clock settings manually. The default GPU clocks are about the same; the Sapphire's default memory clock is about 50% higher than the PowerColor's.

I hooked up two 24 inch monitors via the dvi and hdmi connections and ran a movie on each using VLC. GPU usage on both cards never exceeded 60%. Temperatures on the PowerColor got up to about 70c, on the Sapphire about 60c. Neither card seemed to affect my overall system temperature.

I found this comment on one of the AMD overdrive info pages you can display from the Catalyst Control Center - Performance - AMD Overdrive page:

CAUTION: If a GPU is being used at or close to its maximum capabilities, or if the card is running close to 110ºC, do not increase the GPU or memory clock speeds.

I take this to mean that whether a card runs at 60 or 70 or even 80 degrees C you don't have much to worry about. I'd guess hard core gamers aren't going to be much interested in cards using this chipset anyway. People using office automation programs, email, videos, etc. probably won't find much difference between the two.

Packaging-wise the PowerColor was the more staid of the two, emphasizing its "Advanced Green Technology" though I couldn't find any details on what that meant. The Sapphire, on the other hand, had a picture of a young girl (like one out of a game) striking an aggressive pose, rail gun rifle in her left hand, right fist clenched and extended, chest thrust out of her see-through crop top warrior vest. She looks tres formidable.

Rebates: 10 days after I mailed the PowerColor form in I received an email saying it was approved and would be mailed in 5-7 weeks. I haven't mailed the Sapphire form yet.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Product Bad Advertising

Pros: Reliable product, good price. Works well in business environment for dual screens.

Cons: I have been buying this product for a year or so now. Same exact one resubmitting the order never a faulty one. This last time I placed an order for 5 all five came with a DVI adapter Female I have never seen before and is not the same type as the picture shows on neweggs website. Buyers beware. Small C5 pin and no C1-4 pins. Will not accept DVI to VGA adapters currently sold on newegg. If your attaching dual monitors watch out. You need HDMI to VGA adapters.

5 out of 5 eggsBest 5450 card I own

Pros: I own multiple AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5450 cards from Sapphire, XFX and PowerColor. All the cards meet my needs (I'm not a gamer). My heaviest demand is Windows Media Center (MCE).

The Sapphire (I own two) and PowerColor have 1GB of DDR3. The XFX has 512MB of DDR3.

Other than the amount of DDR3 RAM, I thought the cards would be identical. Boy was I wrong.

I am posting my results, comparing the three vendors.

Cons: Using CPUID HWMonitor all four card cores run at 650 MHz.

The DDR3 on the two Sapphire cards run at 667 MHz (above spec); the XFX DDR3 at 533 MHz (at spec); the PowerColor DDR3 at 400 MHz (below spec). All the cards are 64 bit, so card specs double the MHz.

The Sapphire and XFX reduce the core and DDR3 MHz under light load (to reduce power and heat). The PowerColor remains constant at 650 and 400 MHz.

Running the same (real life) workload (Windows MCE), the Sapphire utilization is ~28%; the XFX ~58%; the PowerColor ~60%.
The Sapphire operates at ~47C; the XFX ~43C; the PowerColor ~49C.

From visual inspection, the Sapphire has the largest heat sync (it wraps around the card). The XFX heat sync is smaller (only extends above the card). The PowerColor has the smallest heat sync.

Windows Experience Index (Desktop Graphics, and 3D Business and Gaming): Sapphire (4.5 and 6.1); XFX* (2.7 and 5.4); PowerColor (3.4 and 5.7). * Note the XFX card only has half the DDR3.

Other Thoughts: By nearly every metric I measured, the Sapphire is the best; the XFX a near second (given equal DDR3); the PowerColor a distant third.

5 out of 5 eggsReady for Windows 10

Pros: Received 3 days after I ordered. Installed both cards in two Dell Optiplex 745 to make them windows 10 ready. Now I have dual monitors running HDMI and DVI. I unplugged VGA from the board.Using Windows 7 PRO 64bit and now ready for Windows 10. Video plays more smooth. Windows Experience Index went from 3.4 for Gaming Graphics to 6.1...Graphics from 3.7 to 4.6.Best bang for the buck.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These cards breathed new life into older but refurbished machines and now I can run Windows 10.

5 out of 5 eggsDual Screens at work

Pros: Good Price
No graphic issues, no fans, quiet.
We use these in a corporate environment to provide dual screen monitors to staff. They work very well no glitches or problems. Every time we have ordered these they have come in good working condition.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: We are not using them for anything graphic intensive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Easy to set up with the install disk, or downloaded "new" Catalyst software recognizes it immediately.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Several people have stated that it runs hot, which it does. But the temperature on mine has always stayed in range. That said, I went ahead and added a small 5v fan to the front side of the cooling fins. Now, it runs cooler and I don't have to be paranoid about it overheating.

I have used this same card in three computers. I don't mean different cards, it is the same card. I like it, so I do not see any reason to buy another one when I upgrade my computer.

The computer that I use this in is used to stream movies and such to my 46in TV. The picture is 1080 and the audio is great. The only system that I couldn't get the audio to work was an old HP with XP on it. I just used the audio out on that computer and it worked really well for three years.

I also use the TV computer to play songs through my stereo. It's easier than changing CDs, and I have a few thousand to choose from. It is also just cool to have a 46in computer monitor with a great picture. :)

If this thing ever goes on sale AND has a rebate, I would like to buy a couple more of them to put in my other computers.

I don't know how this card would do with games as th only games I play are the simple few that come with Windows. But for what I use it for, I would definitely recommend it.

I have used the card in the following machines.

Home Built Unit
HP DC 7700
HP DC 7900
HP Elite 8000
Dell Optiplex 740
Dell Optiplex 380

It is presently in the Dell 380 which is running Windows 7 Ultimate with 4 GBs of memory. I don't need a super computer to stream ballgames and movies. What I have does a great job.
