  2. thanks m8, i was looking for something to hold me off until i get my quad core imac, but i was thinking more geforce 8400, sort of that area as i got dell dimension 3000 and thats got a 250 psu and so i need a cheapish and low power gpu, ive been looking and can you please look to these requirements, thanks alot m8
  3. well if you had read the review, 5450 uses max 13W so your psu wont even notice it's there, same thing with the 8400 as well. Very low power cards. Though 8400 is a lot older (3 generations back while 5450 is current gen), so I wouldn't buy it. The price diff on newegg is like 10 dollars, though if you can get it a lot cheaper somewhere else, then sure...
