Choose whatever you want then, as long as it's PCIe x16 compliant.

I would suggest a cheap Radeon HD 5450.

Is that the cedar? Yes it will work for you, its a low profile card. Its made to use nearly no power but still play games. Just do not expect maxed settings on everything.

It looks weak, but thats it. Its the 5000 series of low profile. The price is damn right though.

from Wikipedia

Quote:
PCIe 2.0 cards are also generally backward compatible with PCIe 1.x motherboards, using the available bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1. Overall, graphic cards or motherboards designed for v 2.0 will be able to work with the other being v 1.1 or v 1.0.
