    Low profile graphics card

    Hi. I am looking to make a few upgrades to my existing desktop pc.
    It is an acer aspire x3200:
    AMD 8450 triple core processor - 2.1ghz
    3gb ram
    640gb hdd
    Nvidia GeForce 8200

    I have looked around on the internet but can not find a lot of info so thought i would post it here.
    I am looking to upgrade the graphics card - i have read that it needs to be a low profile card as the pc itself is a small form unit
    Also, would i only be able to upgrade the ram to 4gb - 2x2gb sticks?

    please help me

    thanks for the links

    I have an acer aspire x3200.... I put in a sapphire radeon hd 4650 512mb low profile card as it was pretty much the only one which didn't require much power and would fit... I can sell you mine as I've since given my PC to my dad and he only requires the integrated GPU?

    And just read above - the 5570 if it runs ok on the 220W psu would be better

    what kind benefits have you seen from installing this graphics card?
    can you play games on it, if so which ones?

    Yeah I have played cod 4, cod 5 and left for dead 2 on it on medium-ish specs. I've also played BC 2 on min specs with it. It wont play the very latest games well but it is a big improvement on the integrated graphics!

    thanks for the info, if you are interested in selling it how much are you looking for?

    Um I am interested in selling it as it's just knocking around. I bought it for about £50 6 months ago so I know prices have dropped. I'd like £25 back from it ideally and I don't know think I have the original box - but will post in an anti static bag + another graphics card box?

    * And I've got the drivers disk
