Installing a PCI express video card in the new HP slimline
by gundamretro - 4/9/07 3:10 PM
The new slimline model has a PCI express slot. Abviously you can only install a half height pci express video card in there, but i found a few out on the market that i can purchase. But the power supply issue is concerning me. The review on cnet says we can install a video card, but they never talk about the power supply requirements. The power supply is a 160 W power supply in there. Can i still install a half-height pci express video card in there ? Because if i were to replace that power supply with something more powerfull, its hard to find that type of power supply. Its a really small power supply. Does anyone know any possible solutions ? I want the portability of this system and also options to expand this system into a mediocre gaming machine that can handle basic real time strategies of the present and future.
