just a quick question should i put my 3450 radeon 256 mb card back in or would this one run games better than that
Well, the hd5450 is 2 generations better than the hd3450. Notice, hd3450
. They are each 450 series, just one is a hd3450 and one is a hd5450. That is how AMD works, the 1000 part is the generation, and the next three digits tell the performance of the card basically. Until the 6 series, performance kept improving, but then they changed. But that way to find out how much performance the card will have and the generation still stands.
