Can I play quakelive at max settings at 125 fps with the AMD Radeon HD 5450? cpu is e8400 3ghz, 2gb ram 800 mhz

i wanna get this gpu, it's only option for me. i currently have the geforce 5200 fx and a p4 3.2 ghz, 1gb ram and frames in quakelive are not stable and i already use low resolution. I
will get this 5450 ati, e8400 core2duo with 2gb ram at 800 mhz.
Is it going to be a difference from old pc? also, will this new pc handle bluray movies with no problems? im not interested in anything else

  1. The recommended pc config(not the minimum one but rather the optimal config) for quakelive is :
    OS :Windows XP or later
    Processor :2 GHz Intel Processor or better
    Graphics card:ATI Radeon X1800 series or better

    As you can see your processor and GPU are indeed fairly ahead of the recommended config.
    Hence you should be able to max out the game at a fair resolution.

    And regarding the bluray compatibility of your GPU....it should be ok..
    But mind the fact that the bluray video or stuff will push your GPU to its maximum(i.e 100% load)..

    If thats ok with you then you are good to go....happy gaming.

    that is the pc i wanna put a 5450 into. the onboard graphics on the pc suck, pretty sure you'll agree. yet i was able to watch bluray movies on it, utube 1080p videos etc. was ok. but i wanna get an extra edge, so i'll buy the 5450. therefore, the performance in movies should be even better with the dedicated card right?

    also, thing is, i know what the specs for quakelive are. i had a pentium 4 3.2 ghz with hyperthreading and geforce5200, yet it wasnt enough for what i wanted (125 stable fps no matter what, on LOW settings). thats why i asked in relation to my current pc (pentium 4 3.2GHz, geforce 5200). would an e8400 c2d with ati 5450 be a significant change?

    I had a look at your processor and GPU...
    The e8400 has following advantages when compared to p4:
    *dual core
    *higher L2 cache(6 MB vs 512 KB)
    *64-bit

    Moreover your dedicated GPU will deliver outstanding performance when compared to that old integrated GPU...
    Also the added ram will be beneficial during gaming.

    SO THE CONCLUSON IS PROCESSOR AND GPU ARE TWO SIGNIFICANT FACTORS DETERMINING THE FPS OF GAMES.....YOUR UPGRADED PROCESSOR AND GPU WILL HELP YOU MAX THIS GAME OUT.
