Re: low profile video card for HP Slimline Desktop
Upgrading a certain parts in the computer depends on what purpose you want it to perform. If you're a GAMER or using imaging sofwares, then use MidRange Video Cards, like 7600GT. If the space on your Casing is very tight, then using low voltage Video cards like 7300LE.

Yes you should be able to install that card in the DC7600 as it is a low profile graphics card, however i would think about upgrading the power supply as 240 watts might be a struggle for the computer.
Ok. The Power Supply Unit that comes originally with your pc is intended for 270 watts only. Sorry, with that kind of power output, you can not upgrade ypur graphix card. I would advice, keep the card you already bought. Get something around 500 watts. Of course, it has to be connected outside the case (the one you currently have is a special form factor PSU). You can get one for around 50 dollars from most online merchants. Good luck.
What you are looking for is an AGP 4x Low Profile video card, The GX260
is designed to be a business Small Form Factor computer so you are
really limited on what you can upgrade to.
What are you looking to do with the video card?
How much do you want to spend on the upgrade?
What Country are you shopping in?

HP had a lot of problems with these PCs, the video card is on-board and seems to be failing a lot. They even had a recall on these, but unless it is still under warranty you are out of luck. I am currently working on one right now that has the same problem. I installed a low profile ATI 4600XT video card and still nothing. I went into the BIOS and somehow navigate to the right spot to tell the PC not to use the on-board, but instead use the PCIe. It was a real pain when the screen is having a sync problem and everything looks funky. But even after that it still tries to boot using the defective on-board. Hope this helps.
The on-board RadeonXpress 200M graphics is a dog. It offloads a lot of work to your cpu, and shares system memory which ties up the bus and detracts from the memory available to the OS.
The s7520 suffers from thermal problems due to it's size and poor ventilation. It also has a very limted power supply. Therefore, your choices are also limited. If you could score Radeon X600 or X1300 with 128MB for cheap somewhere it would be a worthwhile upgrade. It does need to be PCI (not PCI-E) and half-height (low profile).
