Hi. type of low profile card should I get for a Dell Optiplex 760 ?...PCI...AgP ?

Can you guys tell me what would be my best option ? I understand this isn't a killer machine, but it's all I got. Would any cards allow me to play 3d games ? What one's best ? Any good memory upgrades too ? Here's a quick shot of the system-

Power supply will be an issue. I have a small form factor and don't really know where I could find an upgradable power supply...I guess that would be micro atx ? If the card you recommend, needs its own power source, than can you please also recommend a power supply that would fit in the optiplex SFF case ? Im pretty sure that this doesn't come with extra power cables.

  1. the answer is to not buy a dell optiplex

  2. Yes I understand that.
  3. currently your only real choice for a video card would be the ATI 3450/4350 (same card) or Nvidia 8400GS low profile cards. Neither are gaming cards for any modern games. You can upgrade the PSU, try the Tom's PSU forum for advice.
