i was trying to play the game sniper elite v2 and realized that i was getting lag when i used a website to test my performance against the minumum requirements of the game it said that i was getting less preformance from my graphics card than required and i needed at least a ATI Radeon HD 3870 for the game but the odd thing is im running a ATI Radeon HD 5450 so i want to no how is it possible that mine is running worse and what can i do to fix this problem.

What driver set are you using? there is one recent post that performance degraded in that game with the 12.9 beta. Roll back or reinstall your previous drivers.

Hmm, let's see...

HD 3870 - 320 USPs, 496 Gflops (single precision) power rating
HD 5450 - 80 USPs, 104 Gflops (single precision) power rating

So as you see, the 5450 is roughly 1/5th the power of a 3870. AMD (since the HD 3000 days) and nVidia (a few years later) switched to the (Series)(Model)(Submodel) naming system. So, for example, the HD 3870 means HD 3000 series, model 8 (meaning high end), submodel 70 (meaning highest end of the series 8). Now, take the 5450, HD 5000 series, but only model 4 (low end, HTPC class), submodel 50 (lowest part).

So the mean conclusion is: Time to upgrade! Leave that HD5450 to a HTPC which at it does an excellent job and get something with more 'umph' for gaming.
