So the Galaxy 9600GT PCI-E 512MB DDR3 Low Power Low Profile GPU in my wife's Gateway SX2800-01 died.
I am looking for a replacement GPU that meets or exceeds the 9600GT specs in the $0 - $125 range.
If there are any GPUs that will fit in the SX2800-01 and run with the 220W supply it shipped with, that would be awesome.

If not, I am willing to move the innards of the SX2800-01 to another case in order to fit the replacement GPU and PSU. Suggestions on new (cheap) case also requested.
Also, I have an old ATX case with a 400W PSU available (actual Max. wattage is 380W), not sure if I can use it to hold the innards of the Gateway PC.

Don't think that will fit in the SX2800-01 as its PCI-e slot is half width.

You can get a 7750 low profile card, BUT what else is in the system? What cpu ect?

Also, how many amps or watts on the combined 12 volt rail(s) does the power supply provide?

Since the fried 9600GT has been removed, the specs are the same as listed on Cnet and Newegg reviews:

PSU is a LiteOn PS-5221-06
+12V is 14A max
-12V is 0.3A max

R.I.P 9600GT. HD7750 low profile sounds like the best solution

Well, since the 9600 takes more power than the 7750, that would be your best option.

If you still wish to try to move the board, It looks like a mini-DTX board(Its like an ITX board with 2 slots instead of one), so should fit any ATX case. Just remember the bottom slow will have no support because it hangs over the screw location on those boards.

EDIt, actually looks like a DTX(not the mini ones board). Either way, both fit into ATX/MATX cases

Your choice looks good(easy to clean dust out of too).

The HIS icooler one would be thick and may hit the top if your case.
