That really depends what kind of resolution of monitor they play those games in, such as 1920 x 1080, 1280 x 720, etc. And the amount of details they set in game (Anti-Aliasing, Graphics Settings low - high, etc.) Sure, the HD 5450 can play those lesser demanding games on lower settings, but once you try to play a more demanding games, like battlefield 3, Crysis, Metro 2033, etc., you are not going to have a good gaming experience. If you really want to buy a card around $60, go for the HD 6670 as bigcyco1 said. It's really up to you.
