I have the Dell Inspiron 350s (yes, the slim) and i am curious to see if there are any graphics cards that i can put into my computer. I think my monitor is VGA (the cord going from my monitor to my computer has an end with 2 little screws on the outside with multiple pins between the screws). So basically i need a small graphics card that has a VGA port. Any help is much appreciated.

are you planning to play games, if so which?

or do you just want an improvement from the integrated graphics on the 350s?

I am planning to play games in my PC, but i dont expect to be playing high settings or anything. I just want to be able to play Starcraft 2 without so much freezing. I am currently playing on the lowest setting and i get alot of lag. My current graphics card is the integrated g33/g31 chipset.

5670 is a single slot solution you may want to consider

you need a low profile card that comes with a low profile bracket, like the one linked above. MSI was suppose to launch a low profile ATI 5670 but its yet to hit the market so for now your best option would be the ATI 5570.


FYI, this the low profile ATI 5670, its yet to hit the market

I am having the same problem with my 530s playing starcraft. The link to 5570 graphics card is DDR3 and the 530s runs on DDR2 RAM. Problem here???

Hey this card is GDDR3 and these cards dont require the ddr3 memory to run ....it will run fine on an ddr2 memory motherboard...so don't worry pick up an hd 5570 it's all you need.
