I have a HP s5220f and my computer is running a 220 w
I been researching this almost all day because I want to play eve on my computer.
Will this work on my computer
I'm getting it at best buy so I can get it now if all possible so heres the card on their site

I done some research on these cards and people say they work on anything with at less 200 because it only uses around 10 w

The 161 watts from legionhardware is total system use. The 5450 with DDR3 uses about 15 watts (8w idle, 11w 3D use,15w top use watts), or about the same as integrated graphics.

Take the time to read this article about the actual watts a system uses.

So to answer the question, yes the 5450 will work with your HP slimline computer. It's only $40 from newegg.

The HD5450 will work in your computer but it isn't really a gaming card so don't expect much out of it. I think it should handle Eve at modest settings though.

Best solution

The 5450 i'd get is this one.

jyjjy is right, it is a low powered card, it'll be better then your integrated graphics, but don't expect a whole lot out of it.

I order a 5450 so hopefully by Tues I will know if it works or not. I wish there was a psu thats more in the 500w range for my computer but the max that I can find is a 300w

The Seasonic 300w power supply would be a useful upgrade and allow you to step up to a 5670 graphic card. It's out of stock at newegg right now, but it's a quality power supply and worth waiting for or ordering from a different retailer.
From a review of the PSU
"Pros: Purchased this to upgrade the stock 220w psu on a HP Pavilion Slimline s5604f (also put a XFX PVT95GZAFG GeForce 9500 GT low profile card in the unit.) This psu fit perfectly. My motherboard did not have a "micro" 24 pin connector as HP's sometimes do, so it was just a plug and play. Will update if I have longevity issues.

Cons: Not exactly a con, but the wires are extreamly long, at least for my needs. Stuffing them into a slimline case was a bit of a challenge. Still, I'd rather have to much than to little.

Other Thoughts: Pleased so far."

Just in case you return the 5450....... argggh , i know, but in the interest of providing as much info as i can.

It's a tall card, measure and make sure you have the room for it.

A 300w from Seasonic should be able to handle even an HD5750. There are a few low profile versions of the card now I believe.

To let you guys know I got the HD5450 to work with my computer. It mostly works on the lower settings but its better then what i had before
