Amazing value for money card,
This review is from: Sapphire 11166-01-20R HD 5450 512MB DDR3 PCIE HDMI Graphics Card (Personal Computers)
I purchased this as a replacement for the card in my home PC. For the price paid it is amazing value for money. I use the HDMI output to connect it to my TV in the living room and the card will output 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.
The card has no fan on it so it is completely quiet. It comes with 3 brackets which allow it to be installed in both half hight and full hight cases.
It has an onboard sound card also, which allows output of 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound via the HDMI output connector.
However I have had a problem with the audio on the card. If you switch the TV off and bring your computer out of standby, then put the TV on, sound is disabled. The only way to get around this is to restart the PC.
Also I am lucky enough to have another PC that I have put a MSI N210-MD512H GeForce 210 Graphics Card in. I find the Nvidia card decodes video streams slightly better (less noise) and also outputs HDMI deep color at 36 bits per pixel. This card outputs only 24 bits per pixel.

Your drop-out of sound is due to an HDMI handshake problem. By default, your TV is installed in windows as a 'Generic PnP' monitor. You can easily fix this problem by creating a custom driver for your TV. Go to TheGreenbutton.com and google EDID Override.
