This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Here we have a nice little low-profile graphics card for small-form factor PCs. I bought one for my Itzoo Elite 8300 that I picked up recently, as this only consumes 75W of power max. Some may argue that it's quite expensive, compared to say the RX570, but if you're restricted to low profile and a low PSU draw (75W), then this is the best option right now. Low-profile bracket included too. Currently £158 on Amazon, and £10 less than other places, like Scan. From my research, this is preferred over the Zotac variant, as people report that the Zotac is really noisy. MSI seem to have a good rep.

The alternative is the 1050 Ti low profile, which is around the same price. This is significantly better though. For a comparison, see this link:

That's right, but you can't get either of those as low-profile cards, so I don't think you can really compare them. This is the best current GPU you can buy if you're looking to upgrade your small-form factor into a reasonable gaming machine.

That's true as well. But only for limited public. Though you can try to find low profile 1660 super.

Ah. I'll have a look into that, as I'm waiting for this 1650 to be delivered. I'd get a 1660 if I could, although not sure it would fit in the SFF chassis that I've recently purchased. Thanks for the tip!

Edit: Actually, I think I'm stuck at the 1650 as the 1660 requires too much power, so it's not an option for the cheap refurb SFFs that have been going around recently. The Elite 8300, for example, has a proprietary 240W PSU. 75W draw on the 1650 is fine though.

Got a 1650 low profile fitted to a HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Sff with no issues.
Bought one for my little brother with a similar setup and he's over the moon with it. Plays quite a lot on Ultra/High.

That's really good to know - thanks for chipping in. From what I've read, these cards are reasonably capable with many of the latest games. I put my Elite 8300 specs into the Game Debate website, along with this card, and I was pleasantly surprised with it's performance in a lot of the games I tested it against. They're great to transform low-end machines into something that will play many games at a reasonable FPS. Sure they're expensive compared to the performance of other cards in the same price bracket, like the RX 570, which makes it a captive audience. I only paid £65 for the Elite 8300 though, and with a new SSD and this graphics card, it will make a decent little gaming machine for just over £200.

That's the same mentality I had.

Picked up an EliteDesk 800 G2 with a decent i7, 32gb Ram and a SSD HD to go alongside the regular 500GB, didn't cost me anything so grabbed another for my brother and he's got a decent little gaming PC for £130.

Should last him a couple of years.
Unless anyone has a deal for a better card that draws the same or less power, this is the best way to HD game on your TV. You should be able to get this and an ex corporate i5 for? Less than 200 quid? With an ssd upgrade. Sorted.

Where did you get that spec for £130 ?

Cost of the card at about £130.
Got the towers for free.
Would this function out of a 4x pcie slot? The 16x is blocked by the power supply in my Dell 9020 sff.
Looks like the price has gone back up now.

Thanks for letting me know - I've expired the deal. Keep an eye out though as I imagine it will drop again. Surprised it didn't get over 100 degrees heat, as to my knowledge, it's never been cheaper. I think people are comparing it to similar-priced GPUs, ignoring the fact that this is both low profile, and low powered, so it's the best of the bunch for people with SFF machines and cruddy PSUs.
Ordered it from CCL on eBay for just a few quid more with the code in the end. SFF is on the way along with some extra ram from the Amazon warehouse.

Pleased to hear that. I've just received mine today. Fits into my Elite 8300 perfectly with the LP bracket. I stuck another 8GB RAM in it that I bought for dirt cheap from EBay. Just waiting for a SSD to arrive today, then we'll see what this bad boy is capable of. It's been a good while since I've messed about with desktops. Knowing my luck, it will probably blow up when I turn it on.

Haha I hope it doesn't do that on you!

I've also just picked up a second hand i7-3770 to pop in. So much for this being a cheap build

You're making me jealous now. How much did you manage to get one for? I may have to succumb at a future point and upgrade the CPU.

Anyway, slapped the SSD in last night, turned it on, and it really did sound like it was going to blow up. The fans on the GPU, I think, went into overdrive. I literally had to step away from the machine as it just got louder and louder. Pulled the plug and it seems like the RAM I bought is duff. It's weird that it affected the GPU like that. I've taken it out and just running 8GB at the moment. I'm really impressed with it so far. It flies with the SSD. I've only tested it out on Rocket League so far, but that works well. I'll give Forza Horizon 4 a go later to see what I can crank out of that, although it really needs 12GB RAM.

About £65 all in. Should be able to sell the i5 for £20 or so which brings the overall cost down.

That's bad luck with the ram! I managed to pick up 16gb of hyperx fury 1600mhz for £43 from Amazon warehouse.

So looking like just a smidge under £300 overall for a half decent 1080p gaming machine.
