Optiplex 745 GPU?

This question is not answered

Hello!

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.  

    • Dell Dimension 4600, P4 2.66 GHZ, 320GB SATA HD, Nvidia 6200, Vista Home Premium 32-bit
    • Dell Optiplex GX280, P4 3.2 GHZ, 80GB SATA HD, Windows XP 32-bit
    • Dell Inspiron 530, Q6600 Quad, 500GB HD, Vista Home Premium 32-bit
    • Custom Build, Q6600 Quad, (2) 500GB SATA HDs, 4GB Ram, EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 SC, Corsair 650TX PSU, DVD RW, DVD Blu-ray, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit



  • 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.
