I have a small computer, and I don't have much money to invest in a new graphics card.
220W towards new graphics card, so I need a low profile.
can't be too big, I need it to fit into a case that is 10.5" x 4.25" x 18" case. It is very small, I also haven't checked yet if I have a 6 pin power connector...
my spending limit is UNDER 200$ can someone gimme advice?
Seen a review of someone using the same shitty computer as me, and using a SAPPHIRE 100293L Radeon HD 5570 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
It would fit, and it is low profile enough to work, problem is, I can't find it anywhere. It says "Discontinued" on newegg
there are some video cards out there that are "designed" for HTPC's, which most all them are "skinny/narrow" cases, and the video cards i am refering to come with a changeable mounting bracket - but i do not know if that would solve your problem.
I have also in the older days just removed the metal bracket and was just very careful to not stress the card that was just free-floating in the case. (ya gotta do what ya gotta do.)
