I'm upgrading a Dell Vostro 260, at my office, to use as a design computer. The software requirements are "Graphics card and monitor capable of at least 1920x1080 resolution at 100% (96 dpi)". I've got the monitor covered, but this pc does not have a spare connector from the psu for powering a graphics card. Can anyone suggest an affordable card that powers off of the PCEI connection?

Those are the most recent models from both sides that fit that criteria of not requiring an external connector.

You probably won't see them at affordable retail prices though... that's where you'll have to look to the 2nd hand market.

What about older models?

I'm not worried about future proofing this thing, just need to get through the next year or two.

What about the older models? The price?
Still stuck with the 2nd hand market on that.
What I'm looking for is a specific model, that doesn't require power directly from the psu. Second hand was going to be a given, especially for this old of a machines.

As an above poster alluded to, it is equipped with integrated graphics...; are you sure you need a discrete GPU at all?

Not sure. This has an i3-3100, factory dell MB. I've upgrade RAM, and freed up most of the hard drive, but it still seems to drag.
