I am helping my sister upgrade her GPU from an integrated card.


The power supply is kinda small in her slim case. 250 watts.


maybe this card will work ?

She wants to play Bioshock and sims 3 on it.

Can't find 5305 on the Dell site. But the spec for that card's power requirement is:

Minimum 300W or greater system power supply (with a minimum 12V current rating of 18A)

It;s saying you need 18 amps ("216W") on your 12V rail. There should be a label on your psu. You might get lucky. I wouldn't try.

Ya i looked at the PSU and it says 18 amps

And the card really only draws 50 watts.

I thought so too, but he said narrow case and the 530s came up with a standard case.
