New Graphics Card needed. R7 240 or . . .

My current Graphics card (Sapphire Radeon HD4650) does not have drivers for W8.1 so I can not scale the desktop to fit the monitor. I have tried all the tricks in the book, and nothing works. So the next step has to be a new graphics card.

It needs to have HDMI out and use only one slot as I only have one 16x slot and the one next to it has to be used.

I've seen the ASUS R7 240 which will fit, isn't too expensive and should do all I need. Any opinions and advice on alternatives will be most welcome

I do not game at all (so out and out speed is not needed) and use the PC for photo and video editing as well as WP and browsing

Windoze 8.1 64 bit
AMD Athlon II x2 250
4gig 1333mhz
700w Corsair PSU

Overclocked to 3.6 gig and 1600mhz

The r7 240 should definitely do the job if you're not gaming, these half height versions should do the trick

They are low profile ready and support HDMI so they are very nice little choices :D

Excellent. Many thanks for confirming what I thought. Time to flash the plastic again ;)
