very nice, not a horrible card but a great starter card and good for classic games and hdmi to the TV.

keep us posted

The 5450 is not going to break speed records, but it is definitely a good step up from what you had. Hopefully you are enjoying it. I would say your computer is actually pretty well rounded now. When it comes time for another upgrade for you it should be the platform (MOB/CPU/ram).

How's it running? What do you use your computer for?

I'm realizing that the size of the computer limits much more if any upgrading.  I feel like I just travelled in time to the future 10+years haha.  I did get 2 2gb sticks just like 3-4 days ago so it has 6 gb ram on it now. Can't tell difference yet with the ram.  I mainly browse web, forums, play you tube. play videos off hard drive. (plays them better). I was also surprised when I loaded mafia up after the install the load times like 2 seconds and they were much longer before and game had horrible anomolies where you could not play the game it still ran.  I got ET quake wars game to work on it with pretty high graphics settings. computer running good, no problems, heat seems fine on the components.
up until about march was running a p4 1.8 with 512 ram, a buddy I know a laptop from home repair dude got me some parts but they didn't go into the intel 1.8 p4 mobo it was some transional model from an older celeron board, (we tried all kinds of ram) so he sold me very cheaply an amd mobo 1.67 something I don't remember. and 64 mb graphics card computer still was too slow. and year or so before march had p3 900mhz so you understand me feeling like I jumped through a time portal or something.

going from a p3 to p4 to what you have now in that time frame would make a pretty substantial difference.
