You could get away with HD5570 (total system load under 200watts) at the most, HD5550 is safer! Just remember that you will need a low profile card

i asume the hd 5450 1gb is even a safer choice
it has a max power draw of 20w
is it?

because thats better than having nothing my other pc is a hp dv6000 laptop with no audio due to the high temps it suffers and im tired not having something where to play at least at normal resolution
this is the best idea i got with the short budget that i have
i appreciate the information given anyway
