hi i have a kind of old computer with intel x4500 graphics i need to upgrade them. the only problem is that i am restrickted to a low profile card because of my case so i cant get a full sized card. i have narrowed down my search to these cards.

1 : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
2 : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
3 : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

now the display i have is a 20 inch dell lcd monitor running at 1600x1200.
i might overclock them a little and i want to play LOL and battlefield play4free so i want fps over 40 doesn't matter the detail level. btw i know that my pcie slot is only 1.0 but can anyone tell me about how much % the cards will run slower. and i also have 2x2gigs or ddr3 ram 1066 ram running at 1333
any help or advice will be good

you should get a 6670 or a 7750 instead of the options above

but the problem that i have is that i can only have low profile cards and those would probably be big

Then there's only the compatibility issue.


Btw, you have some psu specs maybe ?

No, 3.0 has the same compatibility problems. ( also thought it was only 2.1, but no . . . :pfff:  )

it will work fine. my friend plugged a 6870 into his 775 box and it worked fine. the 7750 isnt even very powerful so it wont saturate the bus

you in theory get 4x more bandwidth with pci-e 3 than pci-e 1 but its not that relevant in your case since the 7750 is very weak and it wouldnt saturate the bus

performance wise, maybe like 3 fps?
