We here at HardwareLogic know the importance of having enthusiast hardware, but not everyone wants or needs the ultra high end components for a system that is doing minimal work or doing specialized work. Today we are looking at the Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 Low Profile card. We haven't spent much time with the card so consider this a preview until we can run additional benchmarks and get a better feel for the card. We've had it since 2010-02-02 which isn't much time at all. Still, we'll share our thoughts on our first impressions.

Update: As of 2010-02-08, we've run through additional testing on the card and now will present the full review which is blended into the original Preview. We'll mark the additions so you can easily spot the changes. Our original findings still stand with the full review.
