Following radeons should do a good job

4650
4670
5650
5670
6570
6650
6670

They all have low power usage and should work fine on your 350W PSU (As long as it's a make of decent quality)


For any form of gaming, stay clear of 4350's, 5450's... They are great strictly for office productivity, in other words, adding a second screen...
(Still beats an onboard 4250, nvidia 8200 or Intel HD but you are limited to very old titles or very low details)


I personally played Mafia II on the following specs at a friend's place. (It's their spare HDTV PC)

Athlon II X2 2.8Ghz
2x1 Gigs Ram
Radeon 4650
AcePower 350W

The game looked great on 1920x1080 with medium graphics... I was quite impressed.
Did lag at times but overall was good.

You can go up to a 6670 or 7750. Have you tired updating the bios? Otherwise I'm thinking your 5450 is doa if your old 9400gt still works.

BTW there is no such thing as a 5650 or 6650 desktop card.
