I'v eseen this perconally and its pretty small. And with a 220W PSU I'd doubt it. I can run a 9600GT off a 280W Dell PSU tho. What are the specifications of yours? | Report abuse underoathnz May 8, 2009 3:17:43 AM Currently It's Core 2 Duo E5300 2GB Ram ( which i'm also upgrading) 320gb HD Geforce G100 Graphics Card (512MB) DVD/R Drive 7.1 Surround Setup | Report abuse AKM880 May 8, 2009 3:49:39 AM So are you planning to game or just use for HTPC and HD content use? | Report abuse underoathnz May 8, 2009 3:59:53 AM Would like to use it for some gaming... not play ultra high end games like Crysis but would potentially like to be able to play Starcraft 2.. not a huge FPS gamer.. | Report abuse AKM880 May 8, 2009 4:03:53 AM You could probably use a 9500GT, or a 9400GT. To be honest I can't say without knowing how many amps, rails you have on your PSU. etc. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>X1700 with a Low Power Low Profile Galaxy 6800GT> Related ressources: ForumGalaxy GeForce 9600GT Low Profile Low Power issue ForumUpgrading to Galaxy 9600GT Low Profile ForumAcer aspire x1700 video card upgrade ForumLow profile 9600. galaxy /sparkle/ or zotac ForumGalaxy GF 9600GT Low Profile ForumAnyone install a Galaxy Geforce 9600gt low profile in HP Slimline?
