Got a DC7700 SFF. Specs

Intel core2duo E6400 2.13 GHz
2 Internal HDs x 250 GB
Nvidia NVS 290 low power graphics
4 GB DDR2 RAM
CD R/W-DVD R

USB
Logitech AudioHub (external power)
Seagate 120 GB HD
HP 840y CD/DVD RW
HP webcam (never use it)
Samson GoMic
AverMedia TV tuner
Mouse/remote pickup
Logitech game pad
Two of the devices use 2 USB ports, so it's 10 overall in use.

Power
Stock 240w

I have read the questions and answers about this type of PC and graphics cards, but I'm looking for some experiences with them. With 2 HDs inside this PC, I know I'm pushing it to do anything different graphics wise...other than an externally powered card I suppose...

Anybody got any experience with a DC7700 SFF and graphics cards? Like to know what you used and if it worked for you? Anybody burned up their PCI-E slot or power supply with a graphics card in one of these?

Thanks

You won't get anything more than a low tier GPU with such a low PSU and even if you could, they'd heat up a ton.

The PCI 1 slot also limits you significantly.
