Hello.
I am wanting to upgrade my HP Pavillion Slimline graphics card so it runs demandng games such as FSX (flight simulator) more smoothly. iI admit - when it comes to Graphics cards i am lost, and it dosent help with i need small ones, i was wondering if anyone could help me or recommend ones that they know will work i would preferably like more that 512MB memory, as i am running on 128 at the moment (pretty shameful - i know :L) .. any advice would be really helpful.

This it?

If so, it's a small form factor machine and your choices are gonna be extremely limited. You will need to find a half height video card and the 180w power supply won't run a modern card anyway.

The power supply is non standard and I doubt if you find a much more powerful replacement anywhere.

Frankly, you have very little chance with this upgrade and anything you can get to work in this little machine still won't make a gamer of it.

The HD5450 is an HTPC card, not a gaming card. I'm sure it's better than what you have but $70 is a lot to spend, especially when there are comparable cards available for less than 1/2 that much. Why would you buy from Directron?

No! If I'd felt good about a particular card, I'd have recommended it. The problem is your 180W power supply...it certainly won't run any of the decent cards jam linked to in #4, the 8400GS is crap, and I just don't know for sure.
