Hi everyone looking for a bit of advice...

Heres my setup first off...

Core i5-2400s
350w mini itx psu
asrock z68
8gb ram
64gb solid state
GPU????
55" Led LCD monitor


Now i plan on putting it all in a very very small enclosure so a Low Profile graphics card would be the only option.

So far I have come up with the

HIS 6670 low-profile (2")

Sapphire 6670 low-profile (.91")

Anyone know of any other GPU's that could work well at pushing this game on medium-high settings to a 55" lcd at 1080p???


Thanks, Nick

Only card you can get other than the 6670 is the 6570 (and some low end Nvidia cards) The 6670 is your best option, since the 6570 would only handle low and maybe medium. Until the game is released we won't be too sure on what to expect as far as performance since it's still in beta.

Yeah, at best right now all you have is the HD 6670.

Ideally, the Radeon HD 7750 will likely come out as a low profile card, but that may take several months.

That's a single slot but isn't a low profile compatible card.

same with the afox one.

That would be the card maxinexus was speaking of, it is low profile, single slot and a 6850, but the site shows it as EOL so might be hard to find.

Low profile and single slot are too different things of course, you can have single slot not be low profile.

that is a low profile card.

this is one that isn't but has a low profile bracket to change but you sacrifice the VGA output.

btw, I didn't notice the one you linked, I could only find this one http://www.afox-corp.com/en/products_details.asp?proid=...

Those are hard to find... as such they sell for quite a bit, check it out http://www.ebay.com/itm/AFOX-AF6850-Radeon-HD-6850-GDDR...

Wow. $350 for a low profile Radeon HD 6850... pretty expensive to say the least and it will not work with a 350w PSU.


A quality 400w sure, but yeah that 350w isn't going to do unless they somehow made this without a PCIe 6 pin power cable being needed. I couldn't find anything about whether it required a 6 pin power cable, it's a major redesign so I was interested in seeing if it went without one :)  but $300-350 isn't worth it IMO. I'd just get a slightly bigger case lol

A list of the best low profile cards available (price be damned) here you go :)

It's a little old but then again there haven't been any new low profile cards so this rank list still works.

Apologize for the first reply, I really thought you wanted a single slot card. Anyways, if you have two available slots and a pci-e power connector on your PSU, there's the 6750 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Otherwise you'll have to get a 6670 or wait for the 7750 to be made in low profile solutions (that could be worth it) ;)
