XFX Radeon HD 5450 Silent Video Card $14.99 AR + Free Shipping @ Newegg
Starts 10 am Pacific / 1 pm Eastern
A good graphics card to have around for backup / testing, for a b asic HTPC or for a server that would otherwise end up headless. Silent low-profile design with no fan with both half-height and full-height brackets included. From what I can tell, this is the least expensive discrete card available today.

Interesting Note: This ATI Radeon HD 5450 is good for Asymmetric CrossFireX on 880G and 890GX chipset motherboards, while the competing $14.99 (after rebate) deal Radeon HD 6450 will not. -Diablo2Player

To answer my own question: it appears that this performs about on par with integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics but several tiers below the performance of integrated Intel HD 4000. On the integrated AMD side, anything A6 or above far outperforms this card (and even A4 chips slightly outperform this card).
Still a good deal for an aging system to re-purpose it as an HTPC or something.
I bought an XFX HD6450 fanless with 2GB RAM about this time last year for ~$30, to replace an XFX 8500GT fanless. It is in my HTPC, does the job nicely, the audio over HDMI works. I would presume this card is very similar and should work well in a HTPC or any other light duty system you need quiet. It's windows experience index was lower than my 512MB 6600, not sure why, but performance-wise very similar. And hey, the 6600 had no HDMI, so no deal... Nice find OP
