I'd like to add a low profile video card to my desktop size 960 w/E8600 CPU, 8Gb ram, DVD & 320Gb HD. The PS is rated @ 255w. Both PCI & PCIe x16 slots are available. Price isn't an issue. I just don't know what my power consumption limit should be and then what cards are good within that power limit. I don't mind shopping ebay for older models. I've seen suggestions for an HD 4350 based card. Can I do better?
I played around with it and I think the 5450 may actually work without psu change. But of course I don't know exactly how many device you have on your computer so I only put in the really standard component. You should try it.
Second opinion on wether 5450 works with 255w psu?
