Video card for DC5750 Small form factor


Dec 28, 2012
I recently received an HP DC5750 Small Form Factor I'm trying to fix up for casual gaming. I've upgraded the RAM but I need a low profile video card that I can run on the 12V 240W power supply it came with. If it isn't possible I want to find a new case and power supply to transfer everything into so I can use my NVidia GeForce GT610 video card instead. I'm on a pretty slim budget too =/. I've put the info for the computer below. I'd appreciate any suggestions you all have.
