This looks like it would fit in our dell inspiron 530s. But my guess that since it is a stock computer with a 250 watt power supply, I would need to upgrade the power supply for a card like this. And maybe I should just forget it altogether. At a minimum, I would like to run a standard vga monitor as well as the hd tv that is now showing hulu pretty well already with a 25' rgb-pc cord - all zip tied nice and tidy. I just don't like craning my neck to see what is going on - on the tv screen. We already made room for the old computer monitor next to the ol' computer set-up. And there it sits doin nuthun. Maybe the smarter (cheaper) thing would be to just get a vga splitter. But for some reason, I think that having the hdmi and better graphics processor would be a nice capability to have. Maybe my husband would enjoy some gaming :whistle:  Or maybe I'm lucky he is not into gaming - and smarter to keep him from wanting to do that :hello:

There's a very good chance that the GeForce 9500 GT will run fine without doing a power supply upgrade.

Hello, i have the same computer and one month ago installed a low profile Asus EAH5570 Series, (about double passmark points than 9500 gt) and its working perfect. Its the best low profile i can find and dont need extra power.

Yes, the best card you can use on 250W PSU is HD5570 low profile (single slot). It should fit into most slim PC.
