    Appreciate opinions (bugs, compatabilities, etc) on the following:

    ATI Radeon 5450 vs 5670

    AMD Phenom 1045 vs 1075

    Used in:
    Desktop, Two 23 in. screens

    Used for:
    Real-time trading/charts, no data crunching, standard Internet usage, occasional video games.

    First time using both of these components. Is it worth the extra $$ for the "better" versions?
  2. Not necessary for trading applications. As for gaming, you'll have to decide how much horsepower you want.
