Whats the Best Card i can get that would fit in my Dell Optiplex 745, This is a PC my brother uses only to play Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft so i dont want to upgrade anything else. just seeing if i can get something better than the 4650 i currently have.

http://www.dell.com/content/products...=28&l=en&s=dfb

my current specs are:

Windows XP SP3
Intel Core 2 6400 @2.13Ghz
2.0GB Ram
ATI Radeon 4650

The Case supports:

1 low-profile PCIe x16 graphics (H: 2.5" X L: 6.6") or

1 PCIe x16 graphics w/ Riser (H: 4.2" X L: 6.6")

768mb gtx 460 is definitely the card you should get. It is nearly the price of the 5770 and it performs much better (and its also a short card).

Is there a low profile version of the GTX 460?

Not that I'm aware of. Why do you want a low profile gpu?

uh.. did you look at the OPs pictures? theres NO WAY he could fit a card even half as long as a 460 in that thing. the CPU cooler is DIRECTLY in the way. OP: i wouldnt even bother trying to fit a decent GPU in there, there is simply not enough room.

The gtx 460 is known to be a short card, but yea its still 1" too long.

but look at the case. unless its low profile and is less than 1 inch longer than the PCIe slot, it will NOT fit.

I know I made a mistake and corrected myself on my previous post.

Still looks too long.

Man, that case is cramped.

And even if it were to fit, the airflow would be atrocious.
