There's 2 different kinds of video cards. (1) ATI built and (2) ATI Powered. #1 is totally built by ATI... #2 is a card built by some other company but contains an ATI chipset. We need to determine which before we can suggest a driver (also you should say which OS you're running). However, drivers from ATI should work ok, but if the card was built by some other vendor/manufacturer, drivers should come from that vendor/manufacturer.
This is the Windows XP driver page from ATI for this product: [url]http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp[/url]
For display the PowerColor HD3450 has one DVI, one VGA D-Sub, and one S-Video connection to give the user a broad array
of options for hooking up the card to different displays. Since the card is a low profile card, the VGA connection is extended
with a flat ribbon cable located to the outside of the PCB. The HD3450 does not use an external power connector, it draws
all the power it needs from the PCI Express bus. Also, this card is Crossfire capable but does not use the bridge to
accomplish this. All Crossfire processing is done via the PCI express interface so that it can be used in conjunction with
the Integrated graphics of an AMD 7-series motherboard in a Hybrid Crossfire combination.
(With heatsink removed)
The HD3450 is designed as a next generation card supporting all of the newest techlologies and that it does well. This card is
not designed for the gaming market and you will not be playing games at those ultra high graphics, but it is great for movie
playback and running Vista's features.
