Not everyone needs a high-performance graphics card. For those looking for improved performance vis-a-vis onboard graphics at a reasonable cost should check out the Axle Radeon HD 5450 - http://www.overclock...iews/axle_5450/

I am just wondering, but why are you testing games like Metro and Crysis with low end cards like these? :unsure:

Desktop :i7 3770K @ 4.5ghz TT Extreme 2.0 Asus Gene V with stock MSI Twin Frozr III HD 7950 @ stock
G.Skill DDR3 8gb G.Skill Phoenix 60gb SSD and Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 240gb and Samsung Spinpoint F1 500GB and 2x Plextor 256gb M5Pro in Raid 0

The way I looked at it, is if we changed games for lowerend stuff people would start asking how the card does on normal games :lol:

So to keep it simple we just run the games with nothing turned on for lowend cards, makes things easier. :)
