Low Profile Graphics Card

  Neighbourhood 09:15 31 Jul 2007

Right, now that all you guys have convinced me I don't need a new processor can anyone recommend a really good low profile graphics card (PCIe) - I want to run ghost recon and HALO 2. I don't want to muck around changing brackets as I just want to plug it in and play (lazy sod I know!). looking to spend circa £100. Currently a Vista machine HP s7750.uk slimline.

Any genius out there who can help gets a gold star (metaphorically)

specs say one pci expansion slot, nothing about pci express slot. even if it had a pci expess slot there are no decent low profile cards that I can find. you would probably need a better psu even if there was one. better off getting an x box.

BTW, that's a little over budget, but a hella good card.

toffley - cheers for the tips but it must be a low profile card, anything bigger wont fit.
