I have a dell 5150c (a small form factor case 275w psu and a pci-e slot - low profile)I bought it thinking i wasnt going to play games on it but er now i want to. Halflife2 ran okay on the Ati x600se card but Oblivion is only just playable at the lowest settings. Can anyone help with a solution (ideally not rebuilding my pc into a larger case) the only card i have found is theAOpen - Aeolus PCX6600-DV128LPalthough i cant find one for sale in the uk and i dont know if my psu will cope.Any help recommends appreciatedTIAJon
Low profile PC-E cards at scan.co.uk: click here
Hmm thanks but i already tried scan:Sorry but all the graphics card we have that are low profile all come with that standard height plate and as such will not fit in a low profile propriatory system such as yours.Best Regards,LeeScan Computers
I know that some of the back plates are removeable and emailed scan back asking for further info but so far no luck.
and thanks for the link (i hadnt seen that you could refine the search to only those that are low profile)Do you think any of these will be any better than the Ati x600 i have at the moment? - Whilst I am all in favour of not spending money they seem a bit too 'good value' to run a heavy graphics game.
They might just about run the games but all depends on what games you want to play?Halflife 2 should be ok but oblivion might struggle.256MB XFX 7300LE TurboCache, Mem 550MHz, GPU 450 MHz, 4 Pipes, D-Sub/DVI-I PCI-E (x16) Fan CoolingThis card will be your best bet.
I played halflife2 on the ati card which was okay at a reasonable resolution and effects set at the middle range (glad to see new games are still made that will run well on modest PC's)I really want to play Oblivion though...:(
I really love the search at scan, it can allow you to be really specific when you do search.The best card is probably the one that woolfie mentions (figures don't always mean the best card!) but in this case that would be the one I'd put my money on!
