Before buying the graphics card I wanted, I made sure to check that it was compatible with my computer... which it is not. Thankfully, that saved me a wad of cash and a bunch of time. However, I'm in a new dilemma as now I'm not sure what graphics card will run well with my computer while being a decent card. I'm currently running this:
Dell Inspiron 530S (Slim)
Processor: Intel (R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7200 @ 2.53 GHz 2.53 GHz
Memory: 3.00 GB
32-bit Operating System
The problem is that because it's a slim case, my graphics card options are limited. I'm also unsure about its wattage so I don't know what will run smoothly. I've done a bit of research and low profile cards seem to be the only things that work with it. So far I've gathered that the following are recommended low profile cards:
There are no low profile HD4850s and never were as far as I know.
Yeah, the HD5570 is your best bet. It is better than all the cards you listed apart from the 96/9800GT and those are a bit much on your PSU. The card ct linked is a good choice.
