Hd 5450 shell shocker (upgrading from 9500gt)

I currently have a 9500 gt in my computer, which is the 1gb vram version.
Would it be worthwhile to upgrade to this 5450 which is only $10 after mail-in rebate?

also, how well would it be able to run the force unleashed ultimate sith edition and force unleashed two @ 1024x768

other specs:
intel i3 530 @ 2.93 ghz
6gb ddr3 ram

  1. Those cards are pretty comparable.

    See this article http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-5450,2549-6.html

    I think your 9500 is probably better actually
  2. thanks, do you think it would be a good idea to oc my 9500gt then?
    I'd guess not because it has no fan
  3. if you want something cheap tigerdirect has a gts250 for 60 with a 30 mail in rebate. I just picked one up for my extra computer that gets used when my bro comes over for all night CoD fests. For 60 that card is awsome its like 4 times as powerful as your 9400gt. I am not betting on the rebate working but if it does that will make it all the sweeter.
