Low Profile Video Card Suggestion

Hey guys, a friends onboard video went out on his eMachines EL1852G-52w..... I know it requires a low profile card because of the mini case that was used and it also requires a low standard card because it's only a 220w PSU.... I don't care to upgrade the PSU and don't really care what specs the card is as long as it works.... As long as it has 1 VGA output and judging from what I seen it has to be a PCI Express 16 slot.

As this system was used for really was reading news and playing of facebook...... Any suggestions on a replacement card that won't break the bank? I'm not gonna lie, I'm looking for least expensive option out there.

Thanks in advance....

I believe there is a low-profile HD7850 available, but she might run a bit warm ....

speaking of least expensive then get the HD 6450 with DX 11 and Shader Version 5.0
But dont expect to game modern games but u will play games released before 2010 with good FPS.

Further Telling us ur CPU speed and ram and anything else and what u wanna do with the card will let us help u. :)

I don't think that card will work on a 220watt PSU on load.

Thanks for the suggestion, we're not looking to spend more than we have to. This PC is not for any games or movies, just browsing Facebook, checking e-mail, and reading News sites. Here's the specs

Pentium E5800 3.2 GHz Dual Core
3GB DDR3 Ram
PUS is only 220W

Any other thoughts would be great, thanks
