We used the following software for testing, Cinebench, 3dmark Vantage, Call of Juarez Demo, Dirt2, Stalker. Ambient temperature during testing was 20 Celsius.
3dmark Vantage 1920*1080:
The ATI card is faster than the Geforce card on a high resolution test.
3dmark Vantage 1600*900:
Even at lower resolution the ATI card is faster with its slightly higher core and memory clock.
Cinebench shows a even bigger different than 3dmark did, something to remember though is that you can get the Geforce card for around 15$ less as this new 5450 sells for about 50$
