1 out of 5 eggsupdate to DONT BUY

This review is from: MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: None i see it just didn't fit my set up, if your cable or adaptor is dvi-d like the other guy said and doesn't have the analog pins then this card will work, but all my cables have the analog pins, which I won't alter

Cons: still a 1 egg

Other Thoughts: Thank you manufacture support for your comments, however, my thought to you would be why not use a connector whether you connect the analog pins or not, at least have the holes there so people can use your adapter either way.

1 out of 5 eggsHDMI port went bad after 6 months

This review is from: MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: VGA still works after 6 months.

Cons: HDMI port went bad after 6 months.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure why but this is the 2nd Radeon card where the HDMI port goes bad at the 6 month mark. I have an HDMI cable plugged from my card into my TV. I did use it almost daily and the VGA ports on both of my cards are fine.

The first one I purchased was from Tiger Direct an XFX Radeon 5450 (XFX Radeon HD 5450 HD545XZQHV Video Card - 1GB, DDR3, PCI-Express 2.1, 1x Dual-link DVI-I, 1x VGA, 1x HDMI, DirectX 11, Heatsink, Low Profile).

I'm going to try another brand of card.

1 out of 5 eggsDON'T BUY

This review is from: MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: NONE

Cons: The DVI port is missing 4 holes around the slot pin, I couldn't even plug my DVI cable in and if you look on the pin side there should be all 5 pins connected, but there are none on this card.

Other Thoughts: MSI has dissapointed me for first time.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

http://www.msi.com/product/vga/R6450MD1GD3LP.html#hero-overview
DVI port is DVI-D as specified in the spec.
- DVI-D x 1
- D-Sub x 1
- HDMI x 1
The four pin you are talking about on your DVI-I cable are intended for analog signal which isn't supported by DVI-D due to its pure digital signal output.

If you have any questions, please kindly get in touch with our tech support team directly at 626.271.1004 for assistance during regular business hours from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time, or you can email us at usreview@msi.com.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC card

This review is from: MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: Cool
Quiet
Quick

I use this for an HTPC with light linux gaming. It maxes out X3 at 720p (which is no real feat) and plays 720P video on silverlight and flash. Also plays DVD's with a good tear-free quality. If I wanted to support Sony and buy Blu-Ray, I believe this card would play it without a hitch.

HDMI audio works fine.

Cons: AMD linux drivers. They really need to work on them. Every few times I boot it comes up all fuzzy which is corrected by changing the resolution and changing it back. I have tried every driver package currently available with no luck.

MSI Afterburner not available for linux.

DVI is DVI-D only. This means that it only puts out a digital signal. Many of these cards come with a DVI-I which has pins for digital and analog. Do not purchase and try to use a DVI-A/DVI-I to VGA adapter for a dual VGA set-up. The adapter will not fit.

Other Thoughts: I only use the HDMI, so I can't comment on the signal quality of the DVI or VGA connections.

Using Xubuntu.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

This review is from: MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: Price. Compact.
I purchased this to upgrade the video card in my Shuttle HTPC that wasn't acting nicely with an upgrade to Win 8.
I didn't need a "gamer" card, just one that was compact enough for my case, displayed Blu-ray well through a HDMI connection, and maybe able to play a few games as well. Worked well out of the box, and I'm quite happy with it. Good budget card.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This was not purchased for my main machine, where most of my gaming is done....so I can't elaborate on how well it will do with new or semi recent games. GREAT VALUE.

3 out of 5 eggsUseless for gaming

This review is from: MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: Cheap
worked well
quiet
low profile

Cons: Here we go,
nearly useless for gaming and virtually impossible to play anything thats even semi new anything that is new has to be toned so far down to make the game playable its not even fun looking at the screen

Other Thoughts: Ok so if your looking to get into gaming i would strongly and i mean STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU PASS
the only reason i have this card to begin with was at the time i was on a extreme budget build and im planning on upgrading to a new better GPU in oh say 8 days 1 hour and 35 minutes but hey whos counting right????? seriously though if your building a gaming rig remember a huge part of it is in the gpu not the cpu an intel i3 is still capable of running games as long as you have a kick booty card in there i have a fantastic custom pc aside from this dated card so if your planning on gaming on anything past minecraft then keep looking.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card for HTPC

This review is from: MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: Low cost, Quiet, low-profile brackets included

Cons: I couldn't get it cheaper. $5 rebate isn't even worth my time. Some buyers got this card for $15 with a rebate. I wish I could have saw it when that rebate was active. The $5 rebate that accompanied my purchase (while nice) isn't really worth my time and hassle. Not going to take an egg off for that. I'm fine paying $40 for a decent non-gaming GPU.

I wish these (meaning all) rebates were simply newegg giftcards, and were automatic with purchase. I would love that.

Other Thoughts: I got this card for a HTPC build of resurrected parts. The video quality is great (over HDMI). Some have expressed that the fan is loud. Mine makes some slight noise, but is only audible if there is nothing on and the living room is super quiet. I can only hear it from about 5-7 ft away and I really have to be hunting to hear it. To be honest, it may even be the PSU fan that is making the noise. Basically it's so quiet I don't care to try and find out.

I didn't use the supplied driver CD. Just got it from the website.

Overall, great card and I'll buy again for smaller computers/HTPCs.

And for those who like to know setups:
Anthlon X2 250
Biostar A880GZ
8GB GSKILL Value Ser. DDR3 1333
60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value for the price!

This review is from: MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: This Card is quiet and fast, runs all 3D's games and movies.... Price is great!

Cons: Beside the rebate, None!

Other Thoughts: The only issue you may be facing is the rebate with the MSI... The Folks at NewwEgg are great! They stand behind their promise, all you need to do is just contact them and have the copies of all docs needed ready, and they will take care of everything! Actually I was surprised!

5 out of 5 eggsMSI 6450

This review is from: MSI R6450-MD1GD3/LP Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Pros: Low power consumption. Fit in a Dell optiplex 745 mini tower

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: Put this in an old Dell optiplex 745 mini tower with a faster 3.4 ghz chip (did have a !.86 ghz I think, don't remember exactly) my sons old 600 watt power supply (yes it did fit) 8GB of ddr2 ram a 1TB WD blue hdd and windows 7 home and it's faster than my moms less than 1 year old piece of junk.. It's not a gaming machine of course but works good for pictures, movies, and basic stuff. I'm happy with the graphics card 30 bucks 15 dollar rebate (I got mine right away thanks MSI) So can't go wrong for a 15 dollar card. Later
