I have an HP 6200 Pro - Core i5 2400 3.1 GHz on Intel Q65 Express.
I'm relatively certain the PSU is only 240 W. I realize that's not a lot to work with, but I received this computer as a present so I can't complain. It's a small form factor so changing the PSU is not really an option?
I'd like to add a graphics card rather than use the integrated graphics, (I play some low-requirement games, nothing intense) but I don't need anything too amazing at all. Preferably one with an HDMI output.
I've been finding varying results, and I even asked on the newegg forums and i got one reply of the 6570. Others online are saying they managed to run an nvidia 430.
I also read that Current matters more than the Power of the PSU so i took a picture of the PSU for those who can decode what it means.
How low profile do you need it? Generally a small card like this should fit in any case, even slim ones. Sometimes "low profile" means half height card, though, but those are quite rare and shitty, generally.
6570 is a good buy at 45-50 bucks as well.
lower your resolution to 720 instead of 1080 and the 6570 will game better than xbox
med settings at 720 is better than xbox for sure on but not on ports
mind you the 7750 is going to be night and day but with your PSU i think that may be to high at load
Well the specs says 16A on the 12V, which is 192W. It's also apparently rated at 90% efficiency, although that might be a lie since they don't say it's 80 PLUS certified Platinum. Still, looking at the actual power draw for the 7750 from the chart, 158W from the wall with an i7 3960X is do-able.
