Windows 7: I need an upgraded card for my HP Slimline s5200.

I need an upgraded card for my HP Slimline s5200.

I would like to upgrade my graphics card so at least I have DVI output (it only has VGA now).

This machine is a slimline so there is a room issue and more importantly it only has a 220 watt power supply. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks and here is my machine:

The power supply is a concern, but pretty sure I have seen other models of HP computers with a similar power supply and they come with something like this,

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Video Cards & Video Devices, Desktop Graphics / Video Cards, Radeon HD 6000 series, Radeon HD 6450

Very low power requirements (about 18W for the card at load, and even less for general use), comes with both the DVI port you want and a HDMI port. Not a world better performance wise by any stretch of the imagination, but still better that the onboard Intel you have now.

Thanks for the link. It list 17 different cards. Which one of the 17 would you recommend?

They're all pretty much the same, just comes down to price and warranty. The XFX likely comes with a lifetime warranty, where the others will all be either 2 or 3 years. That said I would likely go with this one,

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R645D3-512I Radeon HD 6450 512MB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

Cheapest one at the moment and if the rebate actually comes in (never base a purchasing decision on the rebate price), $20 make it a steal.
