Help with finding a low profile video card


I am looking for a low profile video card for my Dell Optiplex GX270 Small Form Factor. Do sell one? The card must be 128 MB and mate with a PCI bus. I have seen some of your cards that say PCI, but the interface on the bottom of the card is looks like this: ____ ________________ ____ as opposed to ____________________ ______, which is what I have on my computer. Will the former design fit?

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

Graphics card

Well, I'm assuming that you have a Dell OptiPlex GX620.

These computers come with built in video which means that there isn't a video card, the connector is connected directly to the motherboard.

This means that you'll need to find a compatible video card to install in your computer. I can't tell you for sure what is compatible because I don't know what form factor (physical box size) your system uses and smaller form factors require smaller sized cards.

Here is the user manual for your system:

Go there and choose the computer you have...
Select the link for "Desktop Computer"
This will give you information and links to find out what your computer specs are.
You will likely have an open PCI Express slot that you can use. The only question is whether or not you need a low profile care or not.

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

Installing a sound card into my Optiplex GX260


OptiPlex GX260 can be Small Form-Factor, Small Desktop or Small Mini-Tower. Compatibility with PCline 5.1 PCI depends on the profile of the PCI Card and the Profile of your OptiPlex.

GX260 Small Form-Factor is compatible with Low-Profile PCI Cards only. GX260 Small Desktop and Small Mini-Tower are compatible with standard PCI Cards. (Small Mini-Tower however uses a PCI Cage).

Check OptiPlex GX260 Systems User's Guide -
From here you visualize the 3 form factors. Also there is info and steps to install PCI cards.

1. Generally, upmarket PCI cards are standard height. Some manufactures supply a metal piece to allow it to be used in Low-Profile or Standard Profile.
2. Driver software needs to be installed after the hardware is installed.

New sound card for HP d530 small form factor..

You just have to look for a "low-profile" PCI card. Creative makes one, Audigy SE SB0570LPVP

Search that for a vendor, or low-profile for other manufacturers.
