how is this compared to an 2nd i-3's built-in graphics? any improvements?
I have an i3 550 1st gen P7H55 setup using the intel graphics on 1 rig through HDMI & a 5450 & 6450 on others...I only use them for XBMC & Streaming HD etc and there's really no difference in performance...I'm not a gamer so can't help you there. Never owned a 2nd gen but if you know the difference in 1st & 2nd maybe this can help.
I've used the 6450 from Newegg, the 5450 from OP & also the Sapphire 5450 that Newegg & Amazon have for $20 AR right now and have never had a problem bitstreaming any audio including TrueHD, DTS-HD MA, Dolby TrueHD, LPCM etc...
Sounds like media player issue...I've run all cards that I named above via HDMI using XBMC and with the right settings my 2312ci & 3312ci and all other receivers I've tested show whatever audio it's receiving on front of receiver except for LPCM which just shows multi-channel...Same goes for running Intel HD integrated graphics through HDMI...
