    Default The Best Low Profile Video Card?

    My daughters have a slimline computer that currently has an 8600GT card in it and it works fine. I'm thinking of upgrading it soon, but I don't know what's the best available card in low profile that would fit the case. Any ideas?

    I took a look at a Radeon 5750 that was low profile and took no additional power. I don't know if there's anything better than that in LP right now.

    You are correct. I just wish we sold that one here in the store. All of our 5750's aren't low profile

    Sparkle also makes a 9800GT and a GTS250 in low profile. The new 450 is probably faster though I honestly haven't looked much into these cards. I doubt the psu in the slimline would last too long with any of these. I know people in the slimline thread on [H] have had to switch psu's for the higher end gpus.
