I'm running a Radeon HD 4550 and it worked fine out of the box so I guess that 5450 will too. Just check your computer motherboard will work with it first.

as a general rule, nvidia has always been a lot less trouble than ATI but this has been changing. you should probably make sure this exact card works well first if you dont want to change your mind
