Which graphics Card should i buy?

By mas_aamir ·
I Have a dc5800 small form factor, according to this catalog

the max power supplied to a PCIe x16 is 25 W, and the aftermarket options for graphic card listed in the same catalog mention ATI HD 4550 256MB, whic consumes around 81 watt at idle levels

What should i do?
Can my PC support any graphic card?

Here I think you'll find that the Max Power of 25W

Is what can be delivered through the M'Board. If the Video Card has a Supplementary Power Connector on it the Max Power is no longer drawn through the M'Board it is just used to pass signals to the Video Card.

So basically any Video Card within reason that has it's own Power Connector should work here.

My PSU is of 240 W, and therefore i need a low power graphic card, and as far as i know low power graphic cards do not have a supplementary power connector.
