  1. I don't know enough about that game to say, but the 5450 should work in your slim line HP, however what kind of performance it will give you in FF XIV I don't know.
  2. This is the question you need to ask. Is it a low profile card? Because if it isn't it won't fit. AMD recomends a 400w PSU to go with that card. The fact is that card under load only needs 19.1w of power.

    So depending on how many amps are on the 12v rail you just might avoid having to upgrade your PSU. Anyway get back to us and we will see what we can do to help.
  3. Well I got my card installed and played final fantasy 14 have the card turned the whole way up and it plays great graphics are even great I am really surprised with this card so for anyone who wants/needs a video card and dont want to spend alot this is a great card it is low profile comes with the brackets and can be run on small power supply I dont know why they say you need 400w to run ....Saphire Radeon HD5450 1gb ddr3 nice cheap little card does the job.

    This is good news. Yeah I didn't think you needed a bigger PSU when the card only needed 19.1 watts under load and I got that from AMD its self. This is good to know for anybody else need or serching for something like yours and good luck to you.
