The fight between video cards has had its fair share of champions and losers in the past decade, and we have seen the scene settle between two giants – leaving all the other contenders laid to waste (3DFX, Matrox, S3), with NVIDIA and AMD now left standing. The battle for supremacy hasn’t let up for a long time between the two, and they have traded positions as top dog quite a fair number of times. It seems as though AMD is in the ascendancy at this moment, although anything can change at a moment’s notice. AMD’s latest offering would be the ATI Radeon HD 5450 graphics card that is touted to deliver a state-of-the-art HD multimedia and game experience at a price point that ought to carve a smile on your face.

Of course at the end of the day, most people would be interested to know in just one thing – how much will it hit your wallet for? We’re happy to report that the ATI Radeon HD 5450 graphics card with 512MB of memory, won’t cost more than – are you ready for it – $60. $60! Now that’s something worth looking into.
