The Sapphire Radeon 5450 is a budget graphics card, no question. Priced around the $50 mark, it's not intended for anyone who has aspirations of anything resembling serious gaming. For people on a very tight budget, however, it has a very attractive...

As a video card for the enthusiast gamer this does not fit the bill. On the other hand such a gamer will not likely spend $50 to buy a video card but there are other markets than the hardcore gamer. The Home Theater PC owner with a low-profile case...

Remember that we said this was a preview. We are still looking over the card and want to save our final judgment for when we can fully resolve how this card performs. What we can tell you, though, is that this is a good entry level card. The target...
