A wonderful HTPC card for an old PC,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Club3D Radeon HD 5450 512MB DDR2 64-Bit Graphics Card (Accessory)
I have an old SFF Dell Optiplex GX 270 , Pentium iV based , running at 2.8 GHz. The system has one AGP and one PCI slot available. I was on a search for a card (primarily on AGP slot) to transform this system on a HTPC with no success. The only products available were asome HD3450 AGP low profile with power requirements which exceed this SFF PS , and old GPU design. I was ready to purchase a traditional GS 8400 PCI version when i first saw that Club3d had a HD5450 version available as a PCI edition.
I bought it from Amazon, with a small delay regarding the delivery due to Post, i finally got it and put it on work. Until now i am impressed of the result. I have installed a compact version of Windows XP, mediaportal, streamedmp skin, a wireless mouse with more than 8 metres range and here it is: A wonderful HTPC that can play EVERYTHING with CPU utilization between 3 and 35%. I can play anything, the system is responsive immediately and quiet because the low utilization which keeps Pentium iv thermal throttle down...
I totally recommend this card for anyone who has a similar situation like mine.
