What graphics card will work with 230watt PSU?

My mums computer needs a graphics upgrade, even just to play games on low settings,
its specs are

CPU-e7300@2.7Ghz
GPU-GMA3100
MOBO-MSI 7525
PSU-230watt????
RAM-4GB ????

(????) are because Compaq blocks everything and makes it hard to move any internal components

anyway what would be a suitable GPU for REALLY light gaming?
any help appreciated thanks.

  5. Budget?
  6. Something like a Radeon HD 4350 or 4550 will work. You should be able to use a passively cooled version. The cards make call for 300w PSUs, but I have seen them in similar systems to the one originally described working just fine. BTW, these cards can be found for next to nothing. Good luck!
  7. I”ve just found out thx to this forum that a gt220 or hd 4650 or hd5570 sshould work with my 220W psu so your 230w should work even better ...?:D
