    I actually kind of like the humble HD5450. I bought mine for an HTPC I built in 2012 for $30 (Sapphire) and got a $15 rebate. That card died in 2016. Still, four years for a $15 card didn't hurt my feelings at all.

    These old systems only worked using ram sticks with non high capacity ram chiplets, you needed DDR3 with chips on both sides thats how you knew it was low density. I am surprised you didnt ask your actual tech savvy guy Anthony over there

    Ok, but what if you were smart about it and didn't buy the cheapest of absolutely everything, but made a few small concessions for some actual performance? Like just a little more ram. Or using an old Xeon? I think you could do much better for like $20 more.

    Playing at 720p seems like it wasn't a good idea if the CPU was already running at 100% as that just puts more load on the CPU by pushing more frames at it that it might be able to handle. Technically I think it should of been ran at 1080 too IF the card supported it to see if performance was any better. (Specifically samish framerate but able to run GPU with higher graphic settings.) (I know many people are not going to get what I am saying but it's a known thing that when CPU bound, running at lower resolutions tends to make graphic card performance worse by pushing more frames than the CPU can keep up with. Higher resolution can mean less extra frames pushed on CPU, meaning more GPU utilization and less CPU related stuttering.)
