I have recently aquired a Dell Dimension 5150c. The main use is for my girlfriend to get her University work done on it, so it is Ideal, but I want to beef up the graphics card so I can get some gaming done.
The problem is in the size. Dell have used the smallest BTX variant (picoBTX) It's just 310mm high, 91mm wide and 363mm deep so there's very little room for upgrading with internal components. There are vacant PCI Express slots (x16 and x1), but only half-height cards will fit. As a result, the Dimension 5150c can't accept large, powerful graphics adaptors.
I've been looking on the web for two days now but answers are hard to find. Surely I'm not the only person with this problem so any solutions would be greatly apprieciated.
I need a good-great Low Profile/Half Height Graphics card satisfy my Gaming Lust.
What are you talking about, i have given you a link which as far as your post suggests you have not used, as i am not psychic, if you had said you have tried crucial then maybe i would have pointed you in another direction. I will also tell you bluntly that i do not like the tone of your reply's and if you adopt the same approach to others you will not get any help...
Very sorry, I appologise! Just getting frustrated with the lack of information out there! I can't understand why its so difficult to find a Good Graphics card for a new (although small form) system! Thanks for trying!
