Question about HP Vectra VL400 P3 Skt 370 Motherboard D9820-60009
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
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
