hi all

i recently purchased an HP pavillion slimline with a Q8400 quad, specs here: http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopping/computer_can...

its has a PCIe x16 slot for the graphics card and currently has a nvidia G210 in it. I'm looking to upgrade but realise my choices are limited as 1) its a mini tower and 2) i think the PSU is only rated 220w.

what are my choices for cards? id like to get something that has comparable performance to the HD4850 or 9800GT. would i have to upgrade the PSU?

thanks!

If you want a good gaming GPU, you will need to upgrade both the PSU and case...
Half height GPU's are prety basic, definatly not gaming cards.

This Sparkle 9800GT would work, but you would definitely need to upgrade the power supply. That may make it not worth the effort.
