Hi, i want to upgrade my dell optiplex 960 with 2GB more of RAM and a Video Card. I was origionally looking at the 6670 slim.
However, i'm pretty sure the PSU is only 255W so was wondering what would be the best that would run properly on the system.
The Dell Optiplex is also a slim case so i need a small GPU.
Its an Intel E7500 core 2 duo 2.93 GHz.

My reasons for uprgarding would be to play games such as starcraft 2, empire total war, civ 5 etc.

HD6670 would do fine on your PSU. It comes with a low profile model as well.

I am a little behind the times and am now looking for a low profile graphics card at 255W, I've done some searching on-line for this graphics card and unfortunately cant find it anywhere, is there something on the market that is similar to this that i might find now. appreciate the help cheers.

750Ti is a great card for its power draw, but even that is a little tight. Is your power supply a normal ATX spec? If so I recommend getting a cheap 300W power supply from be quiet! and getting something like a GTX 750.

Here is a good card for your system: http://www.ebuyer.com/666535-gigabyte-gtx-750-ti-2gb-gd...
