What low profile video card will be the best for Gateway sx2800-01

I wanted to play SimCity on my Gateway sx2800, but asking if they can run the game it failed. I upgraded the PSU to 320 watts and I am looking for the best video card can fit the case and do the job. I would appreciate suggestions.

  1. You should take some images of the inside and let us know how much space you have.

    Will anything stop the card from fitting length wise? How many amps does this 320 watt power supply have on its 12 volt rail(s)

    My first though is something like a 7750 low profile card. Much more would most likely be held back by the rest of the system.

    Google pics always. It's a tight fit but most low profile single slot cards are like this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131480
  3. I like Google images, but have seem several wrong ones when looking for some HP systems in the past.

    I did see that image and my first thought was why did they not put the X16 clot on the bottom. Would have been overall better for cooling.
