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? 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 Related resources Galaxy GeForce 9600GT Low Profile Low Power issue - Forum Optiplex 790 & KFA2 and Galaxy GTX 750 Ti Low Profile - Will it work - Forum Low profile 9600. galaxy/sparkle/ or zotac - Forum Galaxy GF 9600GT Low Profile - Forum Anyone install a Galaxy Geforce 9600gt low profile in HP Slimline? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
