Works for what I needed 05/25/2012
$14.99 after MIR, free shipping, so it's the cheapest 6450 card out there,
I need a video card for my HTPC, and this card works fine with HDMI, the color and picture quality is noticably better than my onboard Intel GMA X4500,
It also frees up 256MB of my memory as it was shared by onboard video,
Works fine without external power adapter, so it doesnt consume whole lot more electricity,
It's quiet...no fan :)
This is 32bit card, and many people confirmed it couldn't game. But I just need it for HTPC: play video, youtube, internet. So it's fine.
I think it's great for HTPC. For game, please consider spend at least 19.99 after MIR for GT430, or 40 after MIR for Radeon 6670, or even more.
Windows 7 socre: 3.1 for desktop and areo (it's actually lower than my onboard GMA X4500), 5.9 for 3D and gaming (much higher than my onboard GMA X4500 at 3.4, but I wouldn't play game using this computer anyways. For game, I still use my good old 9800 GT.)
So far so good, just waiting for the rebate.
