Hi there.

Few weeks ago bought Point Of View G210 512MB DDR2 DVI HDMI Out

(click here)

due to 'screen flashing' on 60hz i have returned this card and bought:


(click here)

First card gave me 4,5 score in 'Graphics' (Win 7 experience index)

The second one only 3,5

I was sure that XFD HD 5450 will be much better (overall)..??

Was i wrong or something is wrong with the product? Got newest drivers from ATI website..

Advanced help

The Radeon 5450 should be fairly equal to the G210, perhaps a little quicker.

I wouldn't bother paying much attention to the Windows experience index if I were you. It isn't very accurate and can come up with some strange results. Eg, it gave my Radeon 4870 512mb 7.2, yet the Radeon 5850 1gb I now have only gets 6.9 - clearly the latter is far superior (and has proven to be in games), but WEI doesn't think so for some reason!
