Default Graphics Card Help

Would this card (Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card (100326LP )) fit into an HP Pavillion Slimline? I'm thinking about upgrading. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure, but just take a tape measure and see for yourself.

Judging by the reviews it got, it seems to fit in a lot of slimline cases. Just make sure you have enough power for it; 300w seems to be the norm.

Edit: Recommended 400w PSU.

Unfortunately, card size sn't your issue. That card needs 400w ish, 350W will probably do it. You most likely have a 300W power supply.

So when you have you system open, check the psu size
