    for the Comparison of the 8500GT and the HD4550 :

    www.tomshardware.co.uk/charts/gaming-graphics-cards-charts-2009-q4-mainstream-quality-update-3/3DMark06-v1.1.0-3DMark-Score,1666.html

    The ATI Radeon HD 5450 offers 512MB onboard and runs silent thanks to passive cooling. Make no mistake – this card doesn't have the muscle for hardcore 3D gaming, but it is well suited for the home theater PC with support for HDMI 1.3a with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.


    The Radeon HD 5450 supports DirectX 11. But lets face it, this card is far too anemic to be purchased for its gaming prowess. At the risk of spoiling the gaming benchmark results, let's just say this is not the card that will bring DirectX 11 to the masses in a meaningful way. We established this to a degree in the Radeon HD 5670 review, and it's even more the case here.

    To be honest, not a great choice in cards, but if push comes to shove then I would go for the HD5450 (Direct X11, Eye finity, and faster processing clocks.)

    But as I said again, don't look in for heavy gaming with these cards!

    hope this helps!
