Looking to replace onboard graphics with Low-Profile GPU

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm looking for a GPU to replace the onboard graphics.

APPROX. PURCHASE DATE: Unknown (will update) BUDGET RANGE: USD $20-$80

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Any type of Gaming, Youtube, Sony Vegas Pro, Source Filmmaker

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Intel GMA x4500 and 220W PSU

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c02866387&prodSeriesId=5080757

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Anywhere except Ebay

PARTS PREFERENCES: Low-Profile GPU, Radeon HD only, at least 1 to 2 GB of DDR3 VRAM

OVERCLOCKING: Nope. SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Nope.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Most helpful advice for me is anyone with great PSU knowledge, GPU knowledge, both, or anyone that has a GPU installed with a computer that has a 220w PSU (Most helpful would be with the same computer I have.)

It doesn't matter. Sorry for the late response.

What are the specific details of you system? CPU, number/type of RAM sticks, HDD/SSD/optical drives, number of fans.

All of this is important to determining exactly how much overhead you have left with your PSU that we can use for your GPU.

1st question: My CPU is an Intel Pentium E5800 (3.2 Ghz), I have 2x2 4gb DDR3-1333 Ram sticks, a 750HDD, 1 optical drive, and no fans (except the fan for the CPU)

2nd question: I don't understand that question.

The PSU is fine for handling a low profile card. I would get this for your price range http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161397

Really, with a 220W (probably no-name) PSU?

The 6670 requires up to 92W, which would use about half of that PSU's power. And that's assuming that this power supply has the kind of rails necessary to output 92W to a graphics card. I mean, I can almost guarantee that he won't have 6 pin PCIe power connectors on that thing, so he'll have to use the molex/sata power rail with adapters. We really need to know how much power he's got on the 12V rail(s).

@OP: If you can open up your case, there should be a sticker on the side of the PSU that lists the max power and/or current for each voltage output of the PSU. Could you post that info? (pic or text is fine)
