HP Pavilion Slimline s5230la upgrade graphic card to match HP Pavilion Slimline s5230br

HP Recommended

I would like to add a graphics card to a slimline  s5230la  s5230 product specifications so that I can use 2 monitors, I learned that the slimline s5230br s5230br Product Specifications has almost the same configuration but it comes with a Radeon HD4350 video card, using the same 220W power supply.  I would like to know if a graphic card such as this should be compatible for this upgrade:  Asus ATI Radeon HD5450 Silence 

or if I might be able to get the upgrade card directly from HP .

Hi:

 

The one you selected should work. There are no power supply requirements listed which normally means it is a non-issue.

 

There are more reviews at the link below if you want more input and below that I pasted the link to ASUS' specs on the card and they don't list any P/S requirements either.

If you want to go with the HD 4350, you may be able to get them still. At least you can in the USA. This one also makes no mention of a minimum power supply but it has a big heat sink which may be an issue depending on how many other cards you have in your PC

I am looking at this model HIS Radeon HD 5450 Silence 1 GB (64bit) DDR3

in the product description it reads "Consumes less than 20 watts under full load",

and in a cosumer image they show the card on a slimline s5113w with no power issues

however on newegg and the manufacturer site they are suggesting a 400 W power supply

Hi:

 

I think you will be OK. Many manufacturer's overstate the P/S requirements of the card so that they don't get held responsible if you blow out your P/S.

 

The fact that it only consumes a max of 20W means you should be fine. Slimline PCIe slots may only be rated at 25W, so you are well within the specs.

 

As you saw AMD did not set requirments and other video card manufacturer's didn't either.

 

I have an HIS silent Radeon HD 6570 in my HP 8200 Elite. Says the same thing. P/S of 400W. My P/S is only 325 W and the 6570 is a supported card by HP for the model.

 

I like my HIS card very much. No problems, great video performance for what I use it for.

 

If you like the card and the reviews, go for it.

 

Paul
