Wanting to upgrade gfx card on Dell Vostro 230

Posted 10 February 2012 - 09:59 AM

Hey guys, I've been wanting to upgrade my graphics card on my SLIM Dell Vostro 230 for a while now, but every card I try hasn't fit. My power supply is a Slim: 250W ATX, Auto-ranging Active-PFC or non-PFC with 115/230VAC line switch (varies by country), 50/60 Hz. It supports low-profile graphics cards.
Here's my DxDiag if needed:

On face I see some issues. The power draw knocks you out of the newer high end cards.

As you mentioned the size of the case is also a problem.

A question becomes - what are you expectations post getting a new graphics card? *WHY* do you want one?

If you go to newegg.com->videocards->desktop->advanced search.. plug in 'low profile' in the form factor.. you'll get an idea what you have there... I would then try and narrow down something to your PSU... or think about getting a new PSU..

I mostly play www.gunz.ijji.com and I'm still getting low FPS on that game. I can barely run games like Bastion on google chrome apps. It'd just be nice to have something faster on this minitower. Even chess.com is slow for me.

How would i fit something like this into my computer? Wouldn't the length be too long?

Are you sure the low framerate is from your videocard and not say just internet lag?

Well you wouldn't making a videocard fit.. either it does or it doesn't. I mean it's not like you can put it in at an angle, right? :D

I have no idea how your case is packed... if the area's clear or not..

Allegedly this is the LWH of the card:

Quote

Item Dimension (L"xW"xH"): 9.5 x 7.5 x 3

http://www.aztekcomp...MS-2492265.html

You tell me - since you have the pc on hand - will that fit?

I'm sure it's not the internet, I used to have a gaming laptop that ran this game perfectly fine. I'm guessing I'll be looking for a low-profile card. Most of these low-profile cards have an extra bracket that I can put so it's not too long, so that should work. How do I tell which graphics cards my 250watt can handle ?

Usually the specs on sites tell you... if one doesn't then google a few other product pages (or the manufacturer) and someone will say.
