Hey guys

I just wanted to know if the ATI 5450 videocard was any good.

My sister needs a videocard for her computer to play sims 3 and it must be low profile.
so i said I would find her a cheap one that can play sims 3 on high.

Yeah, Sims won't need much grunt in terms of video processing power so I would say the 5450 will run the game without issues.

The Sims, even the latest version, isn't too hardware intensive. Furthermore, the Radeon 5450 is HD capable, too, as an added bonus.
