m270n Graphics card upgrade

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, I wonder if I could some advice on a graphics card upgrade. I currently have an HP Media Center PC model number m270n with these specifications:

Motherboard: ASUS P4SD with a uATX form factor, Pentium 4HT 2.8GHz
Video Card: GeForce FX 5200 with 128 MB memory, 8X AGP, with S-Video and DVI out
Power Supply:
Micro ATX-V200HP 200 Watts
Crude measurements of case size: Height: 14 inches, Width: 7.75 inches, Depth: 13 inches

I want to upgrade my power supply and Graphics card to these:
PNY GeForce 6800 GS / 256MB GDDR3 / AGP 8x / DVI / VGA / TV Out /

KDM M6400/7400 400W MicroATX P4 12V Dual Fan Power Supply
http://www.directron.com/directron/m6400.html

Does anyone know if these will be acceptable with my current setup. I'm concerned about the following:

motherboard, which is uATX, and the graphics card says it must be compatiable with an ATX 2.0, is it?

graphics card size, I can't find the dimensions of that card but am concerned that it won't fit

power supply: will that power supply prove acceptable

Thanks very much for reading and answering

400 watts should be enough for Micro ATX system. And yes the card should work fine with your board.
Very nice!

Thanks very much, good hear that the card will fit in the case.
One more quick question, do you know if that card requires any special power connections? I didn't see any at the vender's site: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...2&Sku=P56-7024
but I saw that the EVGA required a molex dongle. Just wondering.

Thanks again
