What about HD5670?
It much more powerful than HD5570 and doesn't required lot of power, your PSU can handle that card...

is there a low profile version?

actually its not THAT important if its low profile cause my case is always open anyway. but it would be better iff there was a low prfile one.

and your sure it would run on a 275W psu?

Yes it will run with that psu but fitting it in that case will be tricky.

why did you want a low profile card?
HD5670 is not a heavy (hot) card, it's a very efficient card and your dell PSU will handle that card easily, since the card doesn't required additional 6pin power connector from PSU.

Well, if you want a low profile card then go for HD5570:

ive got a dell gx745 small form factor pc thats why id need a low profile if i want to shut my case. but im not bothered about it being open as it currently is.

yea my gt220 low profile is practically touching my heatsink shroud so i couldnt get a card any longer than that one. ill have a look round ill probly get the 5670 at the start of next month if the dimensions are right,

thanks guys
