  2. I agree, use a small form factor GPU like this:

    One of these should fit:

    SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI $34.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102882

    SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 #39.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102933

    Both cards will run directly off your MOBO
  3. Don't buy either, it's waste of money.

    The most powerful card that will fit inside of the PC is HD 7750:

    However, I wouldn't let the 220w run it. You can upgrade that as well, though!

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151123

    Not sure on size of the power supply you need, but if you measure yours, I'm sure we'll find something!
  4. I'm going to suggest the two least powerful gaming card as the 5450 is meant for an htpc.
    The 6670 is the first, capable but again this is entry level.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161397

    and the 7750 is the most powerful that you can run

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131480

    thats pretty much it for the low profile cards you need.
  5. Read the post, he has a 220w PSU, that is why we suggested GPUs that will fit and run in the small case he has. That 7750 will not fit in the case he is talking about

    MOBO?
  9. The motherboard (MOBO) in your case will power the graphics cards I linked
  10. Is it an HTCP? Sometimes they get confused with the mini towers. This is what they look like: http://www.squidoo.com/best-htpc-graphics-card

    Of course it will fit. Why wouldn't it? Did you even click on the link? Or did you read my whole post?

    Where do you think motherboard gets power from, genius?

    Buying something like HD 5450 or HD 6450 would be a waste of your money. You might as well stay with integrated graphics.
