XFX Radeon HD 465X-YAF2 Video Card Review

From a pure performance point of view the XFX HD465X-YAF2 Radeon HD 4650 512MB video card is not going to win awards as the card is based upon the mainstream version of the RV7xx series. From the perspective of someone wanting an easy, quiet and power efficient upgrade to an Intel integrated graphics chip, the HD 4650 provides a good inexpensive upgrade path for those users. After all, not everyone can afford to spend $200 on a video card. The XFX card is short in length meaning it can fit into some cases that the larger video cards cannot. XFX has a decent product here for the mainstream gamer wanting decent performance for around $50 By Benjamin Sun
