I'm not familiar with SM 5, but I believe that it is identical to DirectX 11 support.

This vendor only sells in the US and Canada, but it gives you some idea what exists:

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, Desktop Graphics / Video Cards, PCI Express x1, DirectX 11

Are you sure that your motherboard has no PCI-E X16 slot? The last person that I encountered here thought that his board had no PCI-E X16 slot, only X1, but he was mistaken.

Try as I might I am unable to find such a card, plenty of directx 10 (SM 4) but no directx11 to support SM 5.

If you are looking at that design because that's the only slot available, did you know you can buy slot extenders, plug into PCEe x1 and you have a PCIe x16, into which you can put any DX 11 card.

Are they better than onboard video? Yes they are. Just don't expect miracles from them as they are at the very bottom of the video card list.

True , I own a 5450 and can play med-high on some games like me2 and mw3. Other games like gratuitous I've struggle on low around 23-30 fps on 1024x768. The first crysis magicly runs 30fps mid settings on 1024x768. Anyways I say go with at least a 6670 but it's around 100usd. Just piece of advice from a 5450 owner. it's not bad but don't expect pretty resolutions and max settings. Unless its not uber demanding.

Since you have no spec's filled out I would guess that there is some confusion about the ram on the motherboard/the video ram on the card

Most of the more recent motherboards use DDR3 ram.....

Video cards mostly use DDR5 with weaker cards sometimes using DDR3, but the video card ram doesn't have to be the same type as the motherboard since it is exclusive to the card....
