Would there be any faster low profile graphics card?
My system doesn't have a 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector. Also, can my system run the 9600GT,9800GT, HD 5670 low profile models?
The GeForce 9600 GT
is a 96 Watt card that requires a 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector from the power supply so that eliminates this one.
The GeForce 9600 GT Green Edition
, on the other hand, is a 59 Watt card and should be able to run in your current system.
There are three different versions of the GeForce 9800 GT
. The 125 Watt G92a version, the 105 Watt G92b 55nm version and the 75 Watt G92b 55nm version (a.k.a. Green Edition). All three versions require a 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector from the power supply so that eliminates this one.
I have already provided my response on the Radeon HD 5670
in my post above. Just because a card is a low profile version does not mean it will consume less power.
You can also look at the low profile versions from the latest AMD HD 6xxx lineup. NVIDIA doesn't have anything performance-wise that competes in this segment.Radeon HD 5570 replacements:
