Video card, will it fit?

I recently got an HP slimline s5212y desktop. I was wondering if there are any video cards that could possibly fit in the slim case. I see it has 1 PCI Express x 1, 1 PCI Express x16 available slots. I hope something can fit in it since video cards are beastly now and are the size of safety deposit boxes haha.

It needs to be a low profile / half height card that fits into the x16 PCI-e slot. You also need to know how much your power supply can handle so not all graphics cards will work.

Try the new low profile/low power video cards.  These do not required the extra power connector that regular cards sometimes need.

 

They can be use with the stock PSU of most Slimlines.  I am using a Galaxy GeForce 9600 GT on a stock 220 watts PSU.
