PowerColor Go! Green Radeon HD 5450 (Cedar) AX5450 1GBK3-SH 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: Uses a lower-performance laptop (Mobility Radeon) graphics chip, not the desktop chip one would expect in a desktop graphics card. Why doesn't the manufacturer tell buyers what they are actually getting? One star for this lack of transparency.

Other Thoughts: Until I happened to run benchmarking software on the system, I thought the graphics card had the processor described in the catalog listing. No wonder some applications run slower than I had hoped... the laptop part benchmarks about 20% worse than the desktop part.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5670 (Redwood) GV-R567OC-1GI 1GB DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This card evidently works for some folks, judging from other positive reviews

Cons: Doesn't work in my HP dx2250 (even after BIOS update)

Other Thoughts: Looks like it might be some kind of compatibility problem. The computer is PCI Express x16 but not PCI Express 2.0; if this card is not backward compatible that needs to be clearly stated somewhere. As it is, I'm out the $10+ for returning the first card and maybe another $10 for returning this one. I placed the order for the first card on Feb. 15. Eleven days later, I still don't have one that works. It would've been much easier for me to buy a card locally instead. That's what I plan to do after the refund from Newegg.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5670 (Redwood) GV-R567OC-1GI 1GB DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Specs look very good on paper

Cons: Black screen - card's fan runs but that's all, and computer won't boot

Other Thoughts: Hope I just got a bad sample. Only one way to find out - RMA, here we come.
