Question about Graphics BV200 BizView 128MB (128 MB) PCI Graphic 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 :)
I would advise your friend to ugrade that PSU first. 450-500w at least. Depending upon your friends preference, both ATI and Nvidia offer decent cards for under 100 bucks. For the $200.00 he could upgrade both. Check out www.newegg.com. Thats where I buy all my stuff.
