Dear Tom's Hardware community:

I have an HP Pavilion Slimline s5220f that I am looking to pop an Nvidia GPU into. My budget is $200-$300 for a new GPU and any motherboard or PSU upgrade that might be required to support it. The current power supply is a 220W HP TFX0220D5WA, and the current motherboard is an MSI MS-7525 Version 1.0. I have measured, and I can fit a 6.5"-long, single-slot-width card. I don't know the precise height clearance, but the entire case is precisely 4" wide, so it has to be less than that.

Thanks, Drew.

A decent graphics card will probably require more power than the 220 watts. I heard that Seasonic makes TFX power supplies that are decent. Zotac makes a low-profile GTX 650, and that's about the best that can fit except the Sapphire HD 7750 (but that is from AMD). Be warned, however, that you will need to remove any other expansion cards to make the graphics card fit, as the GTX 650 screws onto one slot, but is actually two slots wide.
This is what it looks like:

The HD7750 is cheaper and is around the same performance level as the GTX 650. This model only takes up one slot.
