  1. Sorry, machine is so old and only supporting a pci slot, even after upgrading the psu if possible, it would be a waster of money.

    Time to save up and get a new rig.

    Found this one if psu is 350watts.

    These low profile cards come to mind, they should be good enough for purely viewing videos

    I had a Dell Dimension 3000 and the 250W OEM PSU has 16A on the +12v rail which should be enough for these cards
