Pros: [Follow up to my 9/2009 review] Power supply finally died after five years of heavy use. The last few years it was running 24/7 powering my media center pc in the basement storage room. Not bad imho.

Pros: Good sub-$40 card. Installation on Win 7 64-bit was a breeze. Rig is AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.40 GHz 8GB DDR3 667 MHz.
* WEI Windows Experience Index increased to 4.6/6.1 Graphics/GamingGraphics on this Radeon HD 6450 from 3.7/5.7 on my Radeon HD 5450
* StarCraft II playable at 1280x1024 Medium quality with High textures. First level "Liberation Day" was 25-35 fps, opening Jim Raynor cinematic 42-45 fps
Cons: * 6450s use about 27 watts, PC hotter now than with 5450.
* Temp 98 F in Windows and 105 F in StarCraft II.
* StarCraft II "Liberation Day" final in-game cinematic started at 45 fps but went as low as 15fps when the civilian runs away in the fog using settings listed above.
Other Thoughts: Heat sink nice and low profile. Came with nice plastic covers on each port VGA/DVI/HDMI which I left on the two I wasn't using to keep dust out. Go Gigabyte.READ FULL REVIEW
