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 (http://i.imgur.com/r3ogt.jpg) and I'm looking to upgrade it, but by using a power calculator without the video card I only have about 70W (http://i.imgur.com/P5Hp8.png) 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.
