you can find HD6450's for pretty much the same price as HD5450's so,
i'd still go for the HD6450.
just to keep stuff current too.

1. HD6450- $36 after rebate
2. HD5450- $19 after rebate
If you are not interesting in 3D, HD5450 is a great choice and you'll save $17!

i am comparing 3 HD6450 cards, and this maybe extremely dumb question, but are these all the same except for clock speed and company?
i think i will go for the SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6450 100322L Video Card its $35 and looks to be the smallest card.

It's just different brands. Somebody might say this/that brand is better than that brand.... If you stick with a well known brand, you should be fine!

So do you keep your movies on the SSD? Or the HDD?

Bear in mind that the SSD storage is about 20 times more expensive than standard 3.5"HDD storage.
Here, we can get a 246GB ssd for around 330€, and a 2000GB HDD for 130€...
just do the maths.
Mainly, one should use the SSD for the operative system (windows, linux, etc.), and then standard HDD's for storage (maybe a raid there, for some data safety).
