depends on which card. If its a hd6450/6570/6670, then yes it may work. Tell us your system specs and model and what graphics card are you intending to get?

nope. not only is that 60 higher than the rated PSU wattage but what is there to run the rest of the system.

hmm I see your slimline has a 220w psu. I think your safest bet would be a hd6570 DDR3, a hd6670 DDR5 would have been much better but it'd be cutting it too close.

I was looking at this card http://www.bestbuy.com/site/EVGA+-+GeForce+210+1GB+DDR3...


I am very new to this so I don't know much about this topic


its probably not the best vga for gaming and it would struggle to run most new games even at low. But yes your psu is more than enough to power up the gt210

this is a much better gpu but costs $65

My current gaming graphics rating is at 3.3 Will this boost it? I saw on some videos on youtube where the 210 boosted about 10-12 points

Okay so the HD 6570 will work with my specs right? I plan on going out and buying something tomorrow

are you talking about the windows experience index? I wouldn't worry about it too much if I were you.

gt210 is not a gaming class gpu its built for normal video encoding/ web browsing etc. If your budget holds, get the hd6570.

Okay I won't worry about that. Yes, my budget holds for the 6570.

Just making sure, If I get a Low profile bracket the 6570 will work with my Slimline correct? Also, if my Local retailers (Best Buy, Office Depot, Walmart) do not carry this card, what else could I get?

Yes it should work no problem. I have seen a lot of people using it on hp slimline systems.
