Hi! So, I've read through pretty much every post I can find about optiplex sff's here and, most of the requests are like, what card can I upgrade to to watch netflix and microsoft office. Well, I know this little guy wasn't designed for gaming and that's fine. However, I'm being cheap and I'm too lazy to build/buy a whole new computer when this one works well enough. So, on that note, what's the best video card for gaming that will fit in this thing (preferably with a decent price)? I'm pretty sure it won't take advantage of 2gb or that ones that it can take advantage of aren't really worth getting. The one I'm looking at is $125-$145 so that's about my max. I'd love for it to be a little cheaper. I mostly play STO (feel free to insert nerd joke here)

Here's what I'm currently looking at:

Sapphire 100357LP Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card ( http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0095MRLJ2/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_n... )

my machine specs:
dell optiplex 745 SFF
CPU: Intel Duo Core 2.13ghz
MEM: 8GB
HDD: diamondmax 10 300gb 7200rpm
current GPU: GeForce 8500 GT 512
PSU: 275W
OS: win 7 ultimate 64bit
monitor: Hannspree HF289H 28" - 1900x1200 resolution

You got the BEST choice already, the only thing is the price, this particular low profile is already out of the production - explains price hike!
