    I built a new PC and it works well!
    But here is my Question? I have a "PowerColer Radion 6450 2gb Video card!
    (My Setup)
    Asus motherbroad FM1
    8gb G-Skill
    A6-3500 cpu
    128 ssd plexor
    128 ssd Oz
    plus two "7200" hhd's

    Now! back to the Video Card, in windows 7 my preformance is (4.5) for this card.
    Can anyone tell me why this? am i doing something wrong? my Video Card can't be that bad can it?

    is not the most powerful of videocards, i think it is in the middle of the pack. don't go by the windows rating as not a true indicator of your system.

    i dont think the memory has much to do with it ,its the clock speed that matters the more mhz the better

    The HD6450 is at the very bottom end of the pack. It's the slowest new card you can currently buy.
