Hello, I'm looking to upgrade the graphics card on my Inspiron 560s and can see that a lot of people recommend the Sparkle SX98GT512-D3L-NM... however I can't find a (major) UK retailer that stocks it sub £100 and am concerned that the APU might not be up to the job.
I'll be gaming on a single monitor, but will likely be upping the resolution to something like 1920x1200 as I upgrade (currently just 1440x900).
I'd appreciate any recommendations or advice, though I'd stress that the availability of the card from major UK retailers is a key factor.
Also, being a 560s I'm limited to SFF cards that come with the shorter faceplate.
im using a hd5570 in my inspiron 530s. its good at 1280x1024 resolution, im using it fine on a 250w power supply and costs around £65. im not sure how much better the low profile 9800gt is from the 5570.
Thanks for the recommendation. I picked-up the Sapphire 5570 today and it does a pretty good job. Swapping in the bundled SFF faceplate was a bit of a drama thanks to the tiny screw on the HDMI socket, but a quick trip to Sainsbury's sorted that out.
mine came with a display port so it didnt have the tiny screw, just had to open the hexagonal screws on the vga and dvi sockets then screw them into the 2 low profile brackets. im not sure if i should risk overclocking it on a 250w power supply.
