We got ourselves a new HD screen, but we are still using onboard graphics card. The case is a HP case with motherboard 0A54h inside. The size is rather small. From outside, we see that the case's height is lesser than 9-10 cm.
So this is it, we are looking for a small size graphics card that:
- has HDMI built-in.
- has a small size < 9-10 cm.
- is PCIe 1.0 (this computer is about 5 years old now and I don't think 0A54h motherboard support any later versions)
*we don't play any 3D games. All we want is HD resolution.
Mr. IH8U, be careful with the backward compatibility. PCIe 2.0 is backward compatible with PCIe 1.0, but 2.1 is not. You put in 2.1 to 1.0, your BIOS will not POST.
only some radeons have PCI-E 2.1 compatible cards. sometimes this cards have trouble with mobo especially older mobo that still on PCI-E 1.x. some mobo manufacturer provide BIOS update but some very old mobo might not get BIOS update at all. honestly i'm still wondering why AMD implement PCI-E 2.1 on their cards even though PCI-E 2.0 will do just fine.
