I want to buy a pci-e graphics card to put in a system I will build next year but needs to fit in old pc. The problem is it needs to be 7" long max and fit in a single slot in current pc. I cant afford to build whole PC right now but I can get any/best card that will fit. Thank you to who ever is willing to help me out with recomendaton.

I would take a look at low profile 7750s

This one's out of stock but is low profile ready

Not low profile, but this 7750 is single slot

From the past is Saphire still better than PowerColor on this card? I like this solution but was wondering if Nvidia has a card as good? Thank you very much for the info so far :)

Sapphire is generally a better brand than Powercolor, and Nvidia doesn't have a card on the same level with the same amount of power consumption, the GTX 650 in most cases still requires a 6 pin PCI-E connector and the ones which don't are underclocked and expensive

It should work as long as the motherboard has a PCI-Express x16 slot

I'd also take a look inside at the PSU sticker and make sure that it has more than 16A on the +12v rail

Otherwise you'd have to opt for a much weaker Radeon 6450 or a similar level card

I think the sapphire 7750 is thebest but new egg was out of stock so going with: GIGABYTE GV-N640D5-1GL GeForce GT 640 1GB 64-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card for $69.99 after rebate. Is this just as good for the money?

The GT 640 performs just about the same as the 6670 which is a tier below the 7750

The 640 also requires slightly more power than the 7750

It's not the worst card out there but it'd be best to go for a better card for your new build next year

This slightly slower 7750 with GDDR3 is single slot, which should be fine as long as your system uses full height brackets
