I kept the old motherboard graphics alive and talking to a monitor, and borrowed a second monitor to plug in to the new Radeon HD5450. This was because although the BIOS message and initial Windows prompt appeared on the new card outputs, thereafter it was black, clearly there was a Windows issue. Using both monitors enabled me to discover that it was essential to use the long PCI slot nearest the edge of the motherboard, the one furthest from the VGA, the one already occupied by a dial-up modem. It now doesn't contain a redundant dial-up modem card.
The card does not get hot, in fact with the side of the case open and no air flow from the main fan it is still only running slightly warm even when playing a film on full HD 1920x1080p, so maybe only two to five Watts. Its maximum output on the HDMI 1.4a is 4096x3112, and that being six times the pixel clock speed might well use a lot of power, but such an exotic display is very rare! Also the heat-sink is quite small which helps me believe the rated maximum power of twenty Watts, so I'm not worried about needing a massive PSU to be able to use it; this Dell has a 230 Watt supply and (when I was measuring it) only peaks at 130 Watts from the mains in intensive use.
The card states that the slot requirement is PCI 2.2 or up to PCI 3.0.Read more ›
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.

Great choice (for HD video and some 3D graphics and games) for older motherboards as back as 2004, like the one in the system I upgraded to Windows7 .Published 12 months ago by KONSTANTINOS DELITSIKAS
