Graphics card choice?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi

I have a Dell Optiplex 755 SFF which is the slim line version. I would like to upgrade my graphics card, does it have to be a slim line graphics card to fit? Also my power supply is only 275w. What is the best graphics card I can get for £75/$100 or less that will fit in the case and cope with a 275w power supply?

Thanks

Gaming or business graphics?

This maybe?

The PCI-E slot on that board is only rated for 25w... so you're pretty much stuck to a 5450 which is 19w, or a GT520 which is 29w and over the limit by a little, but you may be able to save a watt or 2 by going with a fanless model.

You would be surprised how many WoW players are on such a setup LOL
