the back plates look very short, so do i need a low profile card. Also anyone know where i can get a cheap one, dont need it for gaming.

1 low-profile PCI, 2 low-profile PCI Express x16, 1 low-profile PCI Express x1

low profile pci express, check your psu, you can probably only run an ati 4550, the only modern low power card with hdmi i know of

the pcix16 is for video cards, pc1 is for other accessory cards, the x16 is high performance for the video cards need to access the system more

yes, many cards use lots of psu power, and on most pre built systems, they dont have much psu power to spare, and even less on compact systems

for the few quid, the 4550 is much better!, not sure if the 4350 has things like hd decoding and such
