HD 5450 1GB DDR3 suitable for MMORPG/RTS gaming?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
How would it be like paired with a G620 at 1600x900 at the following games?

- Maple Story
- Dota
- Dota 2
- Eudemon (Demons Online)
- Runescape
- Dragon Nest
- Counter Strike Source
- Team Fortress 2

Would be good if those with real experience or having the card chimed in.

Thanks.

For those games it will run fine I guess. My friend bought a HD5450 and was disappointed, because it didn't run heavier games, but I guess for those games you mention it will do fine. thumb.gif

Alright. wink.gif

Right now the dude's having a 5450 DDR2. It's my fault I picked the wrong 5450 for him, but I'm not going to accede to his requests for a free upgrade to a 6670 1GD5.

Note: My friend also had a Pentium D @ 3GHz, which bottlenecked the whole setup. 05-06 technology.

Ah, that's notable.

Fact is, I have a 4550 512D3 with a PD930, so I was willing to do a comparison. But it lagged in a number of games.

I've always known it was the CPU, but unsure to what degree; and hence I was never able to make any promises.

Well i've got an i7 950 paired with that card which actually does some of those games
-TF2
-Runescape
-WoW
-CSS
and it runs all of those games perfectly, i do suggest this card for these games, or even the 6450 (if it exists?)

The HD6450 exists, but they won't differ very much from each other.

^ Yup, the 5450 is a lower-clocked 4550. And the 6450 is a direct rebrand of the 5450 with just meagre upgrades to the AVIVO HD system.

Actually, that is not the case. The HD 6450 is not a rebrand of the the HD 5450, it has twice the shaders, and, unless you can get a great deal on an HD 5450, it's not really worth buying it anymore, given that the HD 6450 is just a little bit more expensive.

I don't know some of those games you mentioned, but Dota 2 should be the hardest to run with all the options enabled as Valve improved the source engine for the occasion, which now enables some complex effects. If you can choose between the HD 5450 and the HD 6450, it's a no brainer.

I don't know some of those games you mentioned, but Dota 2 should be the hardest to run with all the options enabled as Valve improved the source engine for the occasion, which now enables some complex effects. If you can choose between the HD 5450 and the HD 6450, it's a no brainer.

Planning to get a used 5450 for him, since a new one costs me $90 and 6450's are extremely rare, new or not.
