Like the title says. Is it better? The 7450 is a card that comes stock in this computer http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883157355 and I don't know much about it. Would it be better to use for gaming or whatever then the Radeon HD 5450.

well, since I cant find any information on the 7450, I'm going to say, no, its not, since the card seems to not exist.

1gb of V ram is always better than 512 mb since games tend to use that 1 gb of ram frequently.

BTW neither of those cards would do good for gaming, I had a radeon 5450 and it had trouble running Halo 2 vista ( any decent graphics card should max out that game)

You need at least a radeon 5770

In theory, yes. In practice, no.

On paper, 7450 is faster than 5450. In reality, I doubt either card can run games the other cannot. Most modern games require at least 3870/4670 level of performance.

Its probably better yes. For gaming, it probably cant even run whatever game you are trying to run.

A Radeon HD 7450 is a rebadged Radeon HD 6450, therefore it has only 160 stream processors.

A Radeon HD 5450 (rebadged earlier this year as a Radeon HD 7350) has only 80 stream processors, even less.

A Radeon HD 7450/6450 is better than a Radeon HD 5450/7350, but both would have low frame rates in modern games.
