What are you basing this on?

Entry-level GPU performance is relatively stagnant. You get about the same performance for the lowest end cards for a few years before any major jump. This is regardless of what the higher tier GPUs are doing. This is how this market functions for the last 8+ years or so....

Mid-level cards scale with every GPU generation... but this isn't a mid-level card.

And what can I do with that? :-)

Proper 3 displays setup with 5450 requires DisplayPort connection and Gigabyte card is the only one with that config.

HDMI: 2 x HDMI
DisplayPort: 1 x DisplayPort

I got a 4350 when the 7600 GS in my old family computer had its fan burn out. I think it ended up being slightly better for gaming, was passively cooled, and got it for less than $40 if I remember correctly, well under my dad's $100 budget. I also had tight PSU constraints, as it was a Gateway computer with one of those cheap-o power supplies OEMs always throw in there.

I think that's part of the beauty in these low end cards... upgrading (or replacing in my case) your graphics capabilities on a tight budget, without having to spend money on buying a higher rated PSU to power a more thirsty card.

Actually your onboard HD4290 has 40SPs and is DX10.1. The HD5450 has 80SPs and is DX11. So they are not equivalent at all, not that this changes your argument but I just thought I'd correct you here. The IGP used in the 780G (HD3200), 790GX (HD3300), 785G (HD4200), 880G (HD4250), and 890GX (HD4290) are all pretty similar as they all have 40SPs.
