I was able to install this on an older motherboard with a pci express 1.1. I had no issues with it. This is running in ubuntu 11.10. It allowed me to get decent graphics without having to upgrade motherboard. No issues on delivery.

I bought this card to replace a Radeon X600SE in a Dell Optiplex GX620 desktop. This computer is about half the size of a midtower so I didn't have a lot of room for the graphics card. I had to use one of the low-profile brackets which came with the card and switching them required a small screwdriver and a wrench. I have never done that before but it was pretty easy after a brief inspection.

Once I installed the Radeon HD5450, I placed the case cover back on but it wouldn't sit flush. Turns out that the 5450 is a bit wider than my original card by about 5 mm. The issue is that the cooling fins wrap around the top edge of the card; you can see it in the picture.

This isn't a deal breaker. I just left the case cover off and since it sits on my desk facing the wall, it's not visible.

This card should be able to play most games but don't expect too much. The Optiplex is hobbled by a weak processor (Pentium 4 3.0 GHz HT) but I have a Dell Zino with a dual core mobile Athlon II and a mobile 5450 that can play modern games. I just finished playing Dead Space 2 on it and I am starting Medal of Honor. I played 30 min of MOH and so far so good. I will try a few games on the Optiplex and I will update later.

Update: Age of Empires III runs well on the Optiplex. It's a bit smoother compared to the original video card. MOH ran acceptably on the Optiplex but there was the occassional lag and screen tearing. My guess is that it is the Pentium 4 processor that is holding back this game and not the graphics card. I played MOH on the Zino and the experience was a lot better despite it having a mobile HD5450.

This card is very good for the price! Not astounding graphics by current standards, but a decent little powerful guy. I went from barely running WoW and other games (Radeon HD 4350 w/shared memory) to playing Guild Wars 2 (low settings, but average 40fps). AND it'll run on 300W!

I'd purchased it specifically because I'd heard it could run on far less power than it "requires" in the specs, and people weren't kidding. My 'puter has a good processor, plenty of RAM, decent motherboard, etc... but the power supply is tiny, and the graphics card it came with was laughable (I didn't know about the power at the time; had planned to upgrade the vid card anyway). It was heck to find an actual upgrade, since I can't personally install a power supply (but can do the simpler stuff like cards and RAM). I also wasn't willing to spend a ton upgrading, since I'll be getting a custom-built awesomeputer in a couple months. This card is win-win!

The card arrived quickly, was no problem to install with the drivers, and the HDMI audio worked instantly. (A problem I had with older cards.) The card isn't even very heavy, like you'd expect with a solid aluminum heatsink. It doesn't even get hot under load, though the framerate obviously leaves a lot to be desired in most games. It's great for video and casual games, awesome for a silent HTPC, and a good emergency stop-gap for heavy games with everything turned off and resolution cranked down.

One major problem I had right from taking it out of the box is that the heatsink wasn't well sealed down at all and consequently wasn't making contact with the chips. It wasn't obviously damaged, but just being knocked around a bit probably did that. GPU temps were high enough to cause artifacts and crashes. I had to remove the heatsink, reapply paste, put the crappy springs back on and pray that it stayed on. None of that would have happened if it was clamped down harder. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to use it for work and get a slightly better card shortly after buying.

I have a pretty crappy gateway computer, in a minitower that I got when my last computer broke and I didn't have the money for something nice. It has onboard video, a PCI-Express slot (not 2.0), and couldn't run directX 11. This card is probably the best possible upgrade on the market for my PC, and it was dirt cheap. I can play games now that I couldn't before, and for more modern, but slightly older games (Like Fallout New Vegas), it recommends high graphics, whereas before I was set to the minimum. It won't play newer releases at max settings, but I bet it can play most games available today. If you are building a gaming PC this isn't for you, but if you have a crappy mini prebuilt with onboard video, this is a huge upgrade.

I bought this video card for an e machines micro tower running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. It came with the low profile bracket which was easy to put on. My power supply is only 220w and this card runs no problem on the machine. It also raised all my scores on the PC. My kids could not play mine craft and amnesia the dark descent game. Now both games run no problem. For the money and the quality of the card you get it's a great choice for your PC.

The video card came on time. It works OK on my desktop, though it has difficulty rendering HD video playback: when you plan HD video and want to seek, the image becomes distorted (artifact). You have to pause the video and then resume it again to fix that.
Another complain is about its rebate program. At the time of purchase, the company offered a $15 rebate. However, later I got an email and it told the document I printed out from Amazon wasn't valid for the rebate purpose. I called their 800 number on the rebate form, the lady on the phone agreed that she will resubmit the document and got it processed, but there is no update after 1+ month.
