I'm trying to upgrade my current video card. I'm currently using an old Dell Dimension C521 (Slim) desktop and I replaced the processor and power supply.

The current computer has:

AMD Athlon X2 5200+ Windsor Processor
Standard AM2 Motherboard
4 Sticks of DDR2 SD Ram (6 Gb)
CD Drive
7200 Rpm Hard Drive
Power Supply Max Output is 280W

My current video card is an ATI Radeon X1300 pro ( and I'm looking to upgrade it, but by using a power calculator without the video card I only have about 70W ( to spare AND the video card has to be low profile. So, I ask for your assistance to find a card that will give my computer a little bit more life. Thank you!

I've chosen to install a ATI Radeon HD 5670 512 MB GDDR5 Low profile GPU. It uses a good 60W, but still below what I have left. Thanks!

Best is 7750.
It doesn't need any outer PSU connection
It draws power from PCI Slot.
