Looking For a low power,Low profile good gfx card

I have a friend who is looking for a new gfx card for gaming. Having researched his system I have found out his options are VERY limited. He has a PCI-e x16 2.0 port BUT the major downside in his system is that the PSU is 250 watts (ouch!). He only has 30W to work with and he has no power cables left to connect to the card, not many need them @ 30W range anyway. Also his computer is slimline =/. So, the best I can find fo him is the ATI HD 4550 which is very cheap,Low profile (if you can take out the VGA port) and ony uses 25W.

So I was wondering if anyone else out there knows a better gfx card to fit a system like that since he is willing to go up to $200

I myself am a heavy gamer, but i dont really know much about lower end gfx cards since i wouldnt touch them with a barge pole (:P)

Thanks for your help in advance :)

BV300 For PCI Express Looking For a low power,Low profile good gfx card - bv300-angle.jpg Diamond BizView BV300 PCIe Different situations call for different solutions, and the BizView line of cards make it possible to turn workstations into multi-display work centers. Diamond created two versions of the card to suit two segments interested in multi-display configurations. The BV300 is a PCI Express version that utilizes the processing power of an ATI RV515 graphics core for "2D workstation applications like AutoCAD, Adobe Suite and GIS software."
The ATI RV515LE is the same graphics core used by Radeon X1300 series graphics cards. The core on the BizView BV300 runs at 450 MHz and is accompanied by a 128-bit memory bus and 256 MB of GDDR2, located on the board. The BV300 can be configured to use an additional 256 MB of HyperMemory by allocating 256 MB of system memory for graphics purposes.RICHARDM69

Hey friends I have D102GGC2 MoBo. I am willing to purchase Graphics card. My budget is INR 1500/- . Which card should I purchase ? Other Info : 2 GB Ram DDR2. 1 TB + 80 GB Hdd + 2 DVD Ram Drivers.


Hello your mainboard uses the PCI Express x16 slot.

More info can be found here:

http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/dsktpboards/d102ggc2

The brand AMD makes very good graphic cards.
With a fan or without it.
A computer shop can advice you what to buy in your case.
Your powersupply must be atleast 400 watts, to support a graphic card with extenal power connection.
I guees you will run low on memory, because the mainboard does not support more than 2 gb of ram.
This means you can not play the biggest games, available today.
My advice to you is to buy a new pc, for better game perfomance.
But ofcouse it depends what games you play.

Good luck

What Graphics AGP Card could I buy to improve my system? thanks Graham


Click here for full specification list for ASUS P4P800SE Motherboard.
Click here for Supported Graphics cards, remember when you go though the graphics cards remember its only those of AGP8X and 4X
If you can go for a Geforce 6600Gt AGP8X you will then be able to do some gaming at 1024X768 pixels, play Call of Duty 4 at low settings. Good considering that Call of Duty 4 is a new game.

It shows that any AGP 8X or 4X card is supported also look at the picture attatched, I circled supported Graphic Cards in RED!!! I recomend purchasing a AGP8X card. 128mb at least.

Please remember to rate my expertise, thumbs up.
Thanks

Hello my friend,you need to know that your motherboard supports card in a PCI Express X16 v1.0a that means that you can buy any card you want but the new cards are v2.0-2.1 so maybe will work on your motherboard but your motherboard will limit their bandwidth and probably if you want a new card for gaming you will need and power supply if you have less that 450W.So you understand that changing a graphic card and have good perfomance have a lot of factors(motherboard,powersupply,a good cpu) but if you want just to upgrade your card to a little better without the need change anything else (or if you have a good power supply) i recommend you Radeon HD 4850 For ~$110 or if you looking for something cheaper Radeon HD 4670 For ~$65

Will NBA 2k10 have crappy or still nice graphic when set to low?


Hi, I hope I'm writing....err....typing this to you in time for you to get your game. You definitely shouldn't worry about the game looking crappy on your laptop, and I'll tell ya why. 1. The PSP can barely match up to good lookin 2005 games, let alone 2009. 2. I don't know who told you about the whole "lowest settings" thing, but it seems they're wrong. After looking at the minimum requirements, you exceed them quite well. You have your dual core compared to a 2.4GHz single core, more than twice the RAM, and a somewhat better video card. With that in mind, I don't see any reason why you should have to worry about the way it looks, let alone lowest settings. I'm not saying that you can crank it up or anything, but you should be able to play with at least SOME settings on medium and not the lowest res. Hope this helps ya :)

I recently bought an old dell optiplex sx 270. I


You are limited in the choices for video card The Optiplex GX270 only has a 160W power supply Not only that but because of the slim case, you're most likely limited to low profile video cards. That means the choices will be extremely limited & not very good. Even after the upgrade, you'll most likely have to stick with older games. follow this link to buy low profile video cards http://www.directron.com/lowprofile.html

What AGP video card will work best in this board? what one is easy to find on eBay? I need to purchase new - the board was a gift with no other cards.


Any AGP graphics card will work in a motherboard with AGP slot.
Depending upon the applications you wish to use with the computer, for example, for just word processing and e-mail, then you only need a low cost graphics card with not much video RAM.
If you have a reasonable powerful late model motherboard and you use it to play graphic intensive computer games then these games need a expensive graphics card with a large amount of video RAM.
Based on this you can go to your friendly computer shop to see what is available and the price range. You can also use Google to research what is available.

Upgrading graphics card onto gx280 motherboard


You need to find a "PCI Express" video card. Your Motherboard does not have an AGP slot. There are lots of them to choose from. Better to pay more now and get more memory on the video card than to regret the purchase and buy another one. IMHO

No Output to monitor, no beeps, fans all OK


Hi karanda,
The green led on the board shows green letting you know there is power to the borad.
Does your GFX card have dual outputs? Try plugging into the other output.
If your monitor light goes from green to amber than your PCI-E is not putting out signal. Pull & re-seat video card.
Did you check Asus to see if your CPU is supported & check what bios version you may need to run CPU?
Chcek here: Check what your M2M-E supports.
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

Your board only supports these two CPU's
Phenom 9500 (HD9500WCJ4BGD),2.2GHz,95W,SocketAM2+,Quad-Core
&
Phenom 9600 (HD9600WCJ4BGD),2.3GHz,95W,SocketAM2+,Quad-Core

You need Bios version 0802 in order to run the above CPU's.

Good Luck & kind regards!
