Would this Graphics card benefit my "RIG"

Naw, I don't give out my steam. I'm too trolly.

But yeah, if that's your limit than get it. You don't have to replace your integrated GPU, that's part of your motherboard, it stays. You'd just plug this new one in to your motherboard and if it has a PSU plug you attach it to the PSU. It should be fine, I'd try it out. For $50, it's not like you have much to lose.


its actually only 35$ so I am excited, its my parents pc, this wont damage it will it? And also, do I need any connectors?

The 5450 is just plug and play, it gets its power directly from the PCIe x16 connector to which you will connect the card, and it sips power, your 250W PSU is fine.
I wouldn't hope to play GTA4 on that though. Dead Space is probably a stretch. Any 2D indie games and the like would play great.

Well, this GPU can run GTA 4, which is what i want, but then my CPU is low...

Apparently the 3870 has fast speeds(dont know what that means) but 5450 has better memory? If the 3870 is better, why does it have so lesser memory, and what does that mean?

sorry wrong comparison

wow, its 257% better!? and why, memory is still low...
And umm... Should i get this? And will my 250 watt psu support it?
#25deware-94(Topic Creator)Posted 5/10/2014 6:31:55 PM
welp! 450 Watts, guess not... anybody have other suggestions! IM GONNA CRY

Don't bother with a Radeon HD 3000 series card. They're no longer supported by AMD and yeah, they need more power than you have.

Dont listen to the wattage bs, just stick a 6670 in there and be done with it. I have a similar HP computer with a 4670 and havent had problems with the stock power supply.

Yeah, if you can get a 6670, do that. Better yet, a 7750. If you can.
