What low-profile, low-power graphics upgrades are possible with an Optiplex 745 (C2D)?
I think a GT 220 would work but is there anything slightly higher-end than that?
The only one that I can think of is the ATI HD 5570 HERE. It has about the same power consumption as the GT 220.
I was thinking about that one too, wasn't sure if the power consumption was pushing it though. A review I just read said it'd be ideal for systems with ~250watt Dell PSU's so, I guess I will take their word for it! Thanks :)
Would a GT 240 fit inside? It seems a little chubbier but the power consumption is just a couple of watts higher for a noticeable performance gain.
The GT 240 is not low profile.
