Hi I'm Looking for a Cheap Low-Profile Video Card for a computer I want to upgrade from a Nvidia 6150se. I going to use it for a bit more power, I don't plan on using the card for powerful games. I Prefer Nvidia but any others would be fine. My specs are:
emachines 1200-05w
892 MB RAM
160 GB HDD
1 GB DDR2
8X DVD-R CD-RW LightScribe Drive

I think the computer has a PCI-e Connection but i'm not sure.
Thanks for any help.

This one comes with a low profile bracket and is about the best low profile card you can buy:

But if you must have nVidia (this card is slower):

OR if you can find them, the discontinued GTS 450, GTS 250, HD5750, HD5670 or the HD5770 are even better (faster). (All of which came in full size and at least one company [or more] made a low profile version of the those cards.)
I did find this GTS 250 on eBay (NEW):

The others I could not find for sale.

Personally, if I was you, I'd buy the GTS 250 on eBay. It's a little faster than the first card I mentioned above. But the ATI 6570 is a little cheaper and a little slower.
