Pros -Low profile bracket fits nice in htpc case -Fanless video card makes it practical for htpc environment -HDMI connection for video and audio
Cons -Dvi to VGA not included -Issues with Boxee when setting the resolution to 1080
Summary Highly recommended if looking for a htpc video card to play h264 movies (both 720p and 1080p) smoothly. Also, this card specifically is better than others with respect to noise..absolutely no noise!!
Summary This card is perfect for a budget HTPC, and second only to the 5570/5670 series as a pure HTPC card. Some reviews show that it doesn't hold up as well in heavily interlaced playback, but that's pretty negligible unless you're a really hardcore videophile.
The sale price of this unit at $30 is less than half the price of the 5570/5670 at around $70, so it wins out there large.
Standard HDMI, DVI, and VGA ports, with a nice addition of allowing you to replace the bracket in the back and replace the VGA port to save space if you have a small case.
Passive heatsink means a bit more heat but a lot less noise.
Summary Budget card perfect for an HTPC. Highly recommended for systems that will not be used for gaming. Lots of different outputs (DVI, VGA, HDMI) that will suit any monitor or TV. Low profile bracket ensures it fits in smaller HTPC cases.
The XFX HD-545X-YNH2 Radeon HD 5450 Graphics Card offers everything you need for gaming and HD home entertainment in one package. Do more on your PC with ATI stream technology, which accelerates even the most demanding applications.
