External graphics card for FSX

I want to replace my integrated graphics on my Xeon processor. Since my PC is too small I have to resort to external graphics.
Any good ones for around 50 dollars?

  1. No external solutions are expensive and not worth the money!

    Is there another solution besides putting a gpu in my pc
  3. Do you mean you need dedicated GPU for your slim tower to play FSX?

    Lenovo m58p. Extremely small. about the size of the new xbox slim.
    Intel Pentium III xeon @ 3.00 GHz
    upgraded RAM 4GB
    sad 280 watt power supply
    sad 140 GB hard drive(thinking of getting external one)
    Win7 32 bit pro
    Currently running integrated Q45/Q43 graphics.

    With low graphics, high end add- on plane, and Fraps...I can get around 15-20 FPS with gamebooster running. I got as low as 2 fps once.

    Sometimes my computer goes on steroids and runs at 50 fps with slightly blurry graphics.

    My friend gave me his asus p6t motherboard.
    I was gonna make a computer out of it but I calculated it would at least be $600 and I don't have that money laying around.
  6. P IV, not P III xeon. This is the one right?

    No point getting anything overly fast for GPU because of bottleneck. A 4670 will do. But then I have no idea whether it would fit or not.
  7. Do you have the sff or usff? The usff doesn't even have a pcie slot but the sff can fit low profile cards.

    That weak old CPU will never run FSX in a million years and since you cannot upgrade to a decent GPU anyway your only choice is to build a new rig from scratch to play FSX.
