Not sure if these video cards are going to work on my friends dinosaur of a computer.

And would like some conformation on his PC supporting these cards (Compatibility).


Card 1 (XFX Radeon HD 6450) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Card 2 (Galaxy GeForce GT 520) - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


MOBO - MS-7548 (Aspen)

PSU - Generic 300w


Thank you in advance.

The GT520 is better since the board might suffer from no video issue with version 2.1 card like the HD6450.

If he plans to play games, neither. Depending on the processor and the rest of the specs, there are much better cards than a 6450 and a GT520.

1. What kind of computer does he have? If its at least a dual core, there are much better options out there. Based on the "Aspen" motherboard, the computer is actually not that old, I have an older one than that with a GTS250 on it.

2. What kind of games is he going to play? If he is playing SC2 and Skyrim, it might be alright, but an upgrade might be needed. If he is playing like LoL and Valve games, it should be nice.

3. Price. How much do you want to spend? Right now DDR3 Radeon 6670's and 5670's are like $70, where the DDR5 versions are just under $100. The Radeon 7750 is about $110 or $120. All of the above will run on the power supply. No Nvidia cards on the market are really good enough in the low end to play games.

2. LOL, Skyrim, Dead Island, DDO. He is looking to remove the choppy gameplay from these games.

3. Less than $25 is nice. with or without rebate.
