Product Shot 1 The Pros:Proper outputs for VGA, DVI and HDMI without needing to mess with adapters. Renders HD video sharply and without any artifacts or other processing concerns. Installation is very simple, nothing special required other than plugging it in.

The Cons:Need to play with the settings a little to get the picture to show properly.

The MSi R5450-MD512H is a low cost video card for people who need to take some load off of their main CPU for graphic processing. While it is compatible with most graphic standards, a low speed processor and memory will make it suitable for casual games.

Those building a home theater can take advantage of its HDCP support, however, to stream video to a variety of outputs.

The processor is a 650MHz ATI Radeon HD 5450 processor, which is supported by 512MB of DDR3 memory. The memory itself is clocked at 650MHz and uses a 64-bit interface to exchange data with the processor. The card uses a PCI-E 2.1 slot, and outputs in VGA, DVI-I, and HDMI. While it can manage resolutions of up to 2560x1600, expect a major performance slow-down at this level of detail. Both DirectX 11 and OpenGL 3.2 are supported.
