    Currently, I'm using a Gateway PC (Mini tower) with the built in Intel GMA 4500 HD Graphics. I'm looking to find a decent Mini tower PCI Express Graphics card that can run games like Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 at a low-decent resolution at a high FPS - preferrably 80-90 or more if possible. My price range is basically anything under / around $70.

    I found a Radeon HD 5450 1 GB supposedly low profile graphics card on Amazon, any opinions on that quality of that?

    I'd just like some suggestions, please. Thanks.

    5450 is a good choice as your power supply is very weak. 80-90 FPS is quite ambitious though, especially if you don't have a mid-high-end CPU in your computer.

    Well, it is a Quad Core CPU - but the 2.5 GHZ isn't that impressive, I agree. 80-90 is still ambitious even on relatively low quality settings?

    Haven't really researched how well MW2 uses multi-core CPUs but it should happen. Not that you will absolutely certainly get a stable FPS of 80 or over. Not that it should matter either if it still runs smooth.

    Thanks so much for all your support. Now I'm confident that the 5450 is the graphics card to me and I plan to purchase it soon. Again, thanks, and bye!
