NVIDIA quadro k2200 vs AMD Radeon R7 450 4gb ddr5

Hi folks,

I am looking to choose between an NVIDIA Quadro k2200 or an AMD Radeon R7 450 4gb DDR5 graphics card for my low end gaming PC.
 

From looking at the specs of each of these the Quadro has more cores and a faster clock speed.

However I am no expert on graphics cards and I am here to learn, can anyone see any reason why the quadro would not be a better choice than the Radeon R7 450 please?

I am aware that the Quadro is not built for gaming but I see many people who do game successfully with them.

My PC build is also on my profile.

Specs are below:

What is your budget and what games do you play?

The R7 450 is likely a fair amount worse. It's an OEM only card, so it's harder to find benchmark data, but apart from the VRAM it seems identical to the R7 350. I'm guessing Dell asked AMD if they could create a "new" card for the next model of Dell computer and AMD gave them that.

From my experience the R7 450 won't play most games that were developed in the past decade.

And the Quadro should have no problem playing games from 2013 and older.

I am looking at spending £50 total on a gpu and I play whatever is on XBOX gamepass and EA play, right now on the HD 7750 ddr3 I have I am playing Dragon Age Inquisition and Mass Effect 3, I would play higher spec games similar to these if the card could take it though.

Just buy the R9 280 3GB,It's much better:

They have a GTX 670 in stock which is almost as good as the R9 280. It might suffer a little on texture quality with less vram but if you can't find the r9 280 it's something to consider.

How about the GTX 750 ti 2gb? I hear good things about this.

I would strongly recommend you save for a little while and opt for a GTX 970. there shouldn't be much you can't play with that card and it's currently the cheapest used card in the UK that will play almost anything.
