Hey guys I cam across this thread about a XFX Radeon HD 5750 1g DDR5 128 bit low profile video card here:

http://xfxforce.com/en-gb/products/graphiccards/hd%2050...

Now bofore you reply check out the right side where it says cons and pros, one of the listed pros is that the card actually is low profile. Can anyone confirm? I can't find card dimensions anywhere.

Here is the Info you are looking for:

Dimensions (Imperial) 7.25 X 4.376 X 1.5
Dimensions (Metric) 18.4 X 11 X 3.8

don't think it is low profile

I wouldn't call a 5750 a low profile card,its a good card for playing games on resolutions like 1280x1024.It runs relativity cool and quiet and it does well in HD playback.

I mean it in the propper respects of the fastest video card that will fit in a dell slim 546 st case, a very small computer case. The card is the best I can fit in my case without getting a new case or doing a new build.

Looking at a image of the back of that case I'm going to conclude that NO, I do not believe it will fit in that case.

Are you talking about the Powercolor 5750 1g DDR5 128 bit low profile video card, or the xfx one?

This is more of what you would need however I can't guarantee it won't overheat in your case. That powercolor still has a double slot bracket which kind of defeats the purpose of a slim card and bonus is that the one linked is more powerful

Edit: wow I looked at your case and it looks like it won't fit the standard size brackets, I can't really tell though

Surely GPU's will have been tested by the manufacturers that such scenarios are ruled out? Not every computer is going to have a decent air flow, some may be non exsistant, so im pretty sure that with a case with no air flow, this will be deemed acceptable. There surely is some form of law to state that manufactures have to fully test their components at the highest level of load/heat and maintain a certain level before they sell them?

No, there aren't any laws against it but it would certainly be bad for business if they sell overheating cards. To explain what I said before, these slim cases are not designed for good airflow and true gaming caliber graphics cards are not designed for cases with limited airflow. They will cool themselves fine but eventually the hot air will build build up and things will get hot. Now I don't know exactly how well the case cools but that graphics card probably displaces more air then the entire case does

not at all, 5750 is neither a low end card nor a high end card....It is a mid range graphics card with dx11 support.

the best low profile graphics cards around are the HD5750 linked above, MSI HD5670 and the GTS250. only 1 of those 3 are currently available. according to a random webpage i found while searching for the low profile 5750, the estimated shipping date is the 21st september.

1 thing though, it might be best for you to get a new power supply for any of these 3 cards. im currently using a 250w power supply to run a HD5570 but the other cards use more power then it. i know there are 300w power supplies out there for dell slim pcs, which would work for the 5670 at least.

it would be a massive upgrade. i think you would be looking at over 30fps. most people say WOW is a cpu intensive game though.
