Want to add a new graphics video card to HP pavillion slimline s3407c

I want to upgrade the graphics card of my old HP pavillion slimline s3407c with a NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE integrated graphics card. Will any of these cards work?

If not, can you suggest a good compatible card - my limit is $80.00

Unplug your PC and open it up.  Read the label on the power supply.  What is the toal wattage and the amperage on the 12+ volt bus?  What is the part number on the PSU?


Slimline PCs were not meant to be upgraded. You will need a low profile video card.  It's going to be a matter of the power (wattage) of your PSU to narrow the video card selection.
