Half height low profile Graphics cards

I have bought a new pc but upgraded it. It is a HP Compaq elite 8300 SFF pc and all of the components are the default apart form: the ram (upgrade to 12 GB), the hard drive (added 2tbs) and the processor (upgraded to Intel Core i5 3.10GHz. Can I get a better graphics card? I am having trouble because it is "half height?" please help!

  1. Best answer
    the problem will be finding one that does not require to much power since you most likely only have a 250W PSU

    an AMD Radeon 5450 will most likely be your best choise
  2. i just had a quick google for you. as long as your HP Computer has a PCI-E slot you can get a low profile AMD HD7750 single bay. or if you have room a low profile GT640 double bay.

    i believe these are the best low profile card around at the moment.
  3. What is the power supply you have? Here is a low profile videocard HD 7750.

    There is quite a few of them, but of course they are not going to be very powerful.
  4. the HP specs say it is a 240W PSU

    Thanks!!! that was really helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!
    If I get a better Power supply can I get anything better and would I have to upgrade anything else? I would prefer a NVidia but a Radeon should be ok.

    THANKS!!!!
