Asus HD 5450 Silent 1GB DDR3 video card problem

I just bough a ausu hd 5450 silent 1gb ddr3 graphics card on the 24th of this month december.. i installed the card and installed the drivers on the cd.. restarted computer and then disaster..went to the website to install the latest drives and the same thing happens.. when browsing on the net everything is super slow and choppy.. i have the latest shockwave flash and i made sure i installed the right drivers for the graphics card and even installed back drivers (later date drivers).. even when im off the net when i go to the start button it comes up weird and not smooth and normal... also i dont know if this helps but one thing i did notice is when im on a webpage that doesnt have graphics the page loads up and scrolls smooth but when it has graphics like this forum it messes up.. does anybody have any suggestions as in why this is happening? thanks soooo much!!

  1. Best answer
    Inexpensive and ships with normal and low profile brackets.

    Cons: GPU heatsink gets very hot and needs a case with good ventilation.

    Other Thoughts: I marked the product down to 3 eggs because this video card was alarmingly warm after a few minutes in just the BIOS. This card is in a server environment with good airflow but I would not trust it in a SFF environment or cases with poor ventilation. I should have spent $10 more and bought the older Gigabyte Radeon model that had a better quality passive heatsink

    The card is overheating even tho its silent you need good air flow read some of these reviews... Hope this helps..
  2. Also a lot of issues with aero in windows as well probably don't like or do flash well its a ddr card which is slower then GDDR.....
  3. what type of card do you prefer i should get? i dont play video games so i dont care about a 80.00 or 250.00 card just something that is good enough to watch youtube and browse the web in good quality.. thanks sooo much..
  4. this one??


    GIGABYTE GV-N610D3-1GI GeForce GT 610 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  5. Can I suggest this its 10 times better then the 5450 and wont cost you a arm and a leg and it will play games but that's not why I am suggesting it I suggest this card because I know its good and reliable....

    This is more then enough and you be very happy with it for utube and movies and such...
  6. If you can get a radeon 7770 or 7750 they would be more then enough for your needs the gt 610 is really weak like the 5450 card you have ...
  7. cool thanks
  8. Your welcome and good luck...
