Hello, I need to upgrade my graphics card on my hp pavillion slimline s5220f! I was wondering since the case is so small, what would be a good graphics card update for cheap that would also fit inside the computer! Will the Asus Radeon HD 5450 run on my computer fine and fit inside of the case! I really want an update so i can finally play ARMA 2!!!!!!!!!
Processor: Dual Core CPU for Intel or AMD
Memory/RAM: 1 GB
Video Card: Nvidia Geforce 7800 / ATI Radeon 1800 or faster with Shader Model 3 and 256 MB VRAM
Hard Disk Space: 10 GB
Operating System: Windows XP or Windows Vista
that minimal video requirement would be about 2x as fast as the 6450. If you swap out the power supply and buy a 6670 or 6570 slim, then you'd have something powerful enough.
I was able to run Arma 2 (DayZ I'm guessing?) on a Radeon 5570 on low settings. I guess if you turned the graphics down to the lowest it goes you might be able to pull it off.
The 6450 should fit also.
The requirements are as follows:
OS: Windows XP or Windows Vista
Processor: Dual Core CPU (Intel Pentium 4 3.0 GHz, Intel Core 2.0 GHz, AMD Athlon 3200+ or faster)
Memory: 1 GB RAM
Graphics: GPU (Nvidia Geforce 7800 / ATI Radeon 1800 or faster) with Shader Model 3 and 256 MB VRAM
Hard Drive: 10 GB free HDD space
Here you can see where those cards are on the chart:
