I mean, possibly classic classic games. If I were you, I would look at some other cards, give me a sec;

Edit: these also can not crossfire.

The first part makes sense for a HD5450 but the other two in bold not so much. You can game on a HD5450 but with only 80 shaders don't expect miracles. Plus it's the lowest end discreet 5000 series card available so it's not at all meant for serious gaming.

It also consumes very little power since it's a lowend card and the newest out of those. It just doesn't make that great of a gaming card. The GTS250 above would do a lot better job at that (it has around 5 times the performances of the HD5450 in games).

Ah, I may have just mis-read the performance of the 8400GS, thanks
