It really depends on what you are going to be using it for. Its going to be fine for basic internet/word processing/etc. type applications, but will not be enough for much in the way of gaming or anything really demanding of 3d power. Its better than an IGP, but only a little- one tier higher than the best IGP on Tom's Hierarchy list.

As said, it depends on what you want to do with it. It's better than an integrated solution by far, which I try to stay away from anyway. However, the 5450 is really intended to be used for multimedia, which it is great for. You know, video playback/editing, DVD/Blu Ray viewing, etc. However, don't expect to play any modern games. It may run some older games somewhat but it's performance is around, or slightly higher than Nvidia's 210 chip.

Again, it all depends on what you want to use it for.

the 5450 is not a gaming card

It's intended for video playback, office use, photoshop, DVD movies

like the others said, your interest would decide if the card is OK.
