And why everyone forgot the GT 710?Its better in gaming than GT 610.
I'd say the GTS 250 is better than the 5450 by a mile.
lol i have the 5450 with is bull, and my bro just ran up to me and said that if i give him 10 pounds he can buy a better gpu, i looked at this one and its a bit better so instead of getting 25 fps on borderlands i will get 27 fps xD
man...just remembering my old HD5450 gives me nightmares lol
the 5450 was the first graphics card i bought many years ago. made no difference than running without one. games still crashed. blue screened all the time even with overclocking software included in the box. 2 days later i ordered the 610 and crossed my fingers. a week later i swapped em out and quickly returned the 5450, getting all my money back. 610 gt performed amazing. no more crashes or weird artifacts. never had a problem out of that computer ever again. just nothing else was upgradable. 5450 is the biggest pile of crap ive ever seen.
I have an HD 545012 model and in no way is it better than the GeForce GT 610! If I did a comparison between this and a NVidia GeForce GTS 250 1GB, it would say the HD 5450 is better even though barely just runs Minecraft on high! Ugh!!
I don't get why the benchmarks only have the 610 up by .1 point. It's more than twice as fast. I have one in an HTPC, it uses like 25w and while playing Fallout 3 is still below 50c. I wouldn't call that hot, hungry or loud. Sure, the 5450 is less than a 20w card, but at idle or playing video there's no difference especially if you want to play any sort of game. Yeah, they're limited but there's not a lot of cards for x1 slots and the 610/520 is about the best you can get.
they are both bullshit cards lol
This is unfair comparsion, most Radeons HD5450 has about 512MB/1GB DDR3 1333/1600MHz VRAM, not DDR2 :F
Not even close. The GT 610 completely owns. Just because it runs hotter and louder doesn't mean 10 FPS on a common game. I hate my Radeon 5450.
