Oh of course 5450 not a strong gaming card. ;)

But hey, 5450 can be a strong gaming card if you optimize polygons and textures. Besides, I don't like games that don't deliver constant visual experience regardless of which video card you use.

As a game developer, I will plan to create games that deliver constant user experience regardless of what video card they use. It will just be like XBOX 360. :)

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

2 pairs of Insignia NS-B2111s (front/rear), Pioneer SP-C21 Center Speaker, and 12" Velodyne Sub

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

Depends GP, it's not a strong gaming card and uses slower DDR2. Aim for a Radeon HD 5670 and sell your blood to cover the cost. ;)

I wish I could have OpenGL 4.0 in my 780G machine, so that I could develop a 2D game using features from OpenGL 4.0. :)
