  1. I simply need a $60 graphics card that can beat a radeon HD6450. I would really like to be able to run it on a 350w PSU. I don't need it for gaming, I want it for gpu acceleration of IE9, video transcoding, and video editing. I know for $60 I won't be getting a ton of power, but I don't need a ton, just enough to help speed along a few things. Thank you greatly.

    How about the Radeon HD 5550 or 5570? The 5550 is going for $60 on newegg and the 5570 is just another $5 or $49.99 after mail in rebate.

    Radeon HD 5550

    Radeon HD 5570

    Both the GeFore 220 and Radeon 5550 are included in this review of the HD 6450.

    Both of the Radeons support DX11.

    Thanks. Does anyone know which provides best performance in terms of computing and openCL?

    AnandTech also has a comparision feature which I believe is based on their benchmark results.

    Not sure which is best regarding performance for computing and openCL.

    Thanks so much for all of the suggestions. I let you know what I have picked in a few hours.

    Edit: I'm thinking of going for the nvidia gt 430 1gb as the 6450 ddr3 seems much slower. Would this be faster for computing though? I know ati/amd typically have faster computing speeds.

    *Bump* sorry for double posting, but I have another question. Is the radeon 6450 available non-OEM?
