I have got a Small form factor desktop computer and need the best AGP low profile card.
What is the best between the "Geforce fx6200" and the "ATI HD 2400 pro" ?
Here is my config : Small Form Factor tower - 12.54"x 13.93" x 3.57" (31.9cm x 35.4cm x 9.0cm)
Power Supply for Small Form Factor : 160W (...I will upgrade it with a Antec trueblue 480W PSU)
Monitor : LACIE Electron Blue III (22 inch.) (...t-rex) (It can do more, but I prefer using 1280x1024 resolution 85Hz)
Computer : Dell optiplex GX270
1GO DDR 333
AGP x8 slot
(remember, gx270-series motherboards have potentially bad capacitor, especially near the AGP slot)
man, don't buy a fx series card... you prolly won't even be able to play video, and i think they have serious prolbems with driver/compatibility... course you need an hdcp complaint monitor too... but i think the low profile 2400's are on pci-e only. My suggestion to you, depending on your current build is to do an inexpensive amd am2 build up and keep your current case/psu, etc. If it's for an htpc you can get away with one for dirt cheap, and may not have to buy a hd 2400 if you get an ati onboard, i think some of those may have support for hd... don't quote me i'm not sure... but it could save you some headache down the road... :-p
Well that means you are using a Socket 478 motherboard. The problem with Dell cases is that they usually have a propriatary power switch and other components. It's a real pain to replace a motherboard in a Dell, especially if it's a small form factor one.
From the looks of it the best card out there that's both low-profile and is AGP is the 6200, which isn't a very good card. It will output to an HDTV with Component cables though, so it'll be accepatble for 720p HD output to a HDTV, but you won't really get beyond that.
