New sound card for HP d530 small form factor..

Hello!

I recently got this small form factor desktop HP d530 with no sound hardware.
I found it has 2 PCI slots, but this PC is much smaller than the usual size desktop... so I am not sure which sound card to buy for it... will any PCI sound card be good?
Company website and forums only tell of an integrated sound card...
Any help will be greatly appreciated...

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.

    Is this not the kind of device you are looking for?

    I notice that it is a side loading, so it looks like just about any PCI card will fit. The only restriction is length, maximum of 6.875in.

What graphics card is compatable for hp d530


I'm not going to go through a list for you, but I can tell that you don't have many options. The HP Compaq Business Desktop D530 uses a small form factor which means you don't have the same space as normal desktop users inside of your machine for the vast majority of display adapters. You would need at least a medium form factor for that.
The other problem is that your power supply is only 185W and can't supply the the amount of power needed for most desktop class display adapters.
The machine you are using wasn't designed to ever be used for gaming, and it shows. You would need to get a bigger computer case and higher watt (around 400 to 600 watt) power supply to support most desktop display adapters.

Graphics card


Desktop Casings are lower enough that can't be closed when inserting Cards like your Graphics card. Change your desktop casing to Tower Casing so you can freely install your Graphics card to the graphics card of your motherboard.

CPU FAN SPEED IN HP Compaq d530 Small Form Factor Desktop PC


The fan/heat sink on these models get plugged with dust very easily, use an air compressor or can of air to blow the dust out of the heat sink and fan. In extreme cases the thermal paste gets dried out and needs to be re-applied to properly cool the processor.

Graphics card


If you wish to upgrade your graphics card to a better one you will need to go out and purchase one. A good company is ATI they will have good gaming graphic cards. If you are still unsure about the graphics cards, or if this is not your problem you can e-mail me personaly at 4077mashunit@gmail.com

All the Best,

Widescreen resolution...


Every video card has it's max resolution. To see what your max is for the d530, if your running a version of XP. Open Control Panel. Open Display. This will open Display Properties. Click the Settings Tab. Listed there is screen resolution, sliding the marker all the way to More will give you your Max resolution. I have a high end video adapter & my max resolution only goes to 11280x1024. You may have to contact HP/Compaq. The link listed contains updated drivers for the d530 but there is a bunch listed because each d530's have different internal devices.
