Low power graphics card for dual display

Hello,

I have an Optiplex 380 small form factor pc. It is my work computer and I'd like to have dual monitors. The power supply is 235w.

So I need a low profile, low power consumption graphics card. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

  1. Radeon 5450.
  2. I rocked an 8800GT for years. I still have it as a back-up if my either of my 570's crap out.
  3. The ATI website recommends a 400w power supply for the Radeon 5450. Will the 235w on my machine suffice? Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I don't know much about graphics cards.

    This one is cheap ($35, $15 after MiR) and Asus brand.

  5. Under load, that card should pull max of 25W. So, i guess it depends on what else you have in there but it should be fine.
  6. If you are really worried about power, you can try this. Its more expensive, but no need to open the pc!
