I need a Video card to fit a SFF Optiplex 380. resolution needs to be ran at 1900 x 1080. DVI or HDMI VGA, Doesn't matter Although I doubt VGA would go this high ?? A fairly inexpensive one will do (around $100)
As long as you are not planning to game on it(or want to game at the lowest settings you can). The 4350(I have used that card @ 1920 x 1200 over VGA ) be should fine.
I am not sure why that card is so expensive. Picked up an Asus one for under 40(Use it with media center. then replaced it with a 5770 for some games, now back to it to save power.). It is low profile as well, but it IS 2 slots tall(passive).
Seems older cards just get more costly.
Some cards here, Just watch the higher end stuff unless you have the power supply for it.
I am in a heavy Industrial plant so we usually ( at least in my part of the plant) don't usually use many graphics. The best I could get out of the Optiplex was 1280 x 1024. It's in a cabinet under a desk in a rather nasty place so I didn't open it or Boot it when I added a 24" monitor.
The reason the card is expensive is due to the industrial suppliers we must go through due to purchasing rules. They don't mind charging more for many things . Due to limited resources we don't always make the best deals. But we do know we can depend on the vendors to deliver most of the time. I guess that is worth something. Its hard to explain but that is just the way it is for me.
Personally I love New Egg I use them for my personal stuff all the time.
I will look for the cards you recommend they cost much less. Maybe I can find one from one of our suppliers.
