Solved: Graphics Card question 2.0
Hello. Again. I've been reading around, and people have been saying that an AMD Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3 isn't good. Is it better or worse than a Intel HD Graphics card. I need to know this because the AMD is $70 more than the latter. I need to know if it's worth it. Keep gaming in mind, please. Thank You!

AMD Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3 is a low end graphics card but in my opinion better than the Intel HD Graphics card.

Thanks, in your opinion what kind of graphics card would do best a low price. I'm assuming this is as good I'm gonna get for this price?

What graphics card you get depends on the power supply you have and motherboard you have the CPU you have the operating system you have and of course the money you have.

Usually any plug in video card will be better than onboard one assuming it is an upgrade to the intergrated one.What games do you want playing?

Mirror's Edge, Minecraft, audiosurf, Driver Francisco, plant's vs zombies, skyrim (possibly, obviously thats a big one anyway), dungeon defenders. That's usually the most intensive my gaming would get.

Those are not high res games but Skyrim may need Radeon HD 6850 or 6870 to play properly.

Sorry, need to be more clear. Good enough for the normal games. After that, that's it!

I really don't need to play skyrim. And frankly, I don't even own it, I was just wondering.
