yes i've been reading up on the same thing, but i can't seem to find a graphics card that would be supported by my computer because of the small power supply i have

pretty sure a hd 5450 could run on that and could play games on medium at around 1204x768-1280X720. Use to use this card before i upgrade my psu and got a 6870 for my gpu. Just to be safe I would at least get a 300watt unless you plan to upgrade later to something that uses a lot more power but I believe this would run since the most it uses is 38 watts under load and 12 when idle. Pretty powerful card for low profile and was running games like mass effect 2 and far cry 2 on medium and team fortress 2 on mid-high settings with around 28-40fps on 1024x768-1280x720 depending what game it was,could run batman arkham asylum almost maxed at 30-40fps expect for aa and some effects like dust once i oc the memory on the card a bit,With stock clocks i ran pretty much everything at low-medium at 1024x768-1280x720 at 30fps.I had a great experience with it for around a year then I upgraded.With

u think this card would actually work with a 160 watt power supply thats already in my computer, or would i have to upgrade it, not much space in this little thing for something much bigger

I was being conservative. For example:

Sapphire Technology Web Site#

Sapphire recommends a 400W PSU or greater. That seems absurd for a card that consumes so little power, but Sapphire doesn't admit to less.

I admit that I was trying to discourage Kapone86 from the upgrade. (I really can't encourage people to mess with appliance PCs.) However, I see:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ue=679%3A55197

that a low-profile 5450 card can be had for about $30. (An Asus card has a $20 rebate, bring the cost + shipping to $16.) It won't be a super gaming card, but it ought to be much better than pre-2012 onboard graphics. (While it's still on the market, the 7025/630a chipset dates from 2007, according to Wikipedia.)

ye i think it would probably run and its a small card doesnt even have a fan on it that's how low powered it is ,just has a heatsink on it. If you want to be on the safe side though just get a 300watt psu should be fine even with 200watts. I say it should run on that psu not 100% sure but i believe it would since the max wattage is 20-30watts under load .
