I am looking for an inexpensive used desktop that has a PCI express slot and big enough power supply to support a decent graphics card with HDMI output, such as the ASUS nVidia GeForce 210 or similar. Using this for HD video mostly, no gaming.

Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Dell Optiplex 620's are Pentium D / Pentium 4 machines, and you can find them < $100 complete all day long with shipping all over the web. You can even find Optiplex 745's and 755's for around $175 complete too (Core 2 Duo machines, usually Core 2 6550 and 6750 processors, with a couple gigs of ram and 160gb hdds). Off lease liquidators are the place to find cheap systems.

Good find Mavroxur. Only issue with those older models is their pci-e slots are 1.0a not 2.0 and several boards dont support the newer cards. Also the biggest psu in those 745's is a 305w which is ok for what hes asking for but not much more.
