    go to start, Control panel click System: Tell me what Processor you have. It should say AMD or Intel and a Speed. ie 2.6 or 3.0 GHZ. Then i need to know what RAM you have. 1 gig or 2 gigs ect.

    See the key is to match your components it saves time and money in the long run. Some people put a 75 dollar card in a 2000 dollar computer and they wonder where they went wrong at. lol

    I built my last PC and put the best stuff in it that was available at the time. Then moved to the country and can't even get internet lol. STILL ! But i went balls out on a GFX card and even with a 1000 dollar processer Intel Xtreme quad core 3.2 it couldnt push the Gtx 295s i had. So.... I had to over clock from 3.2 up to 4.6 speed to get it to run all together. Look at a computer like a football team if you will, When one part struggles, They all struggle ! till the fatal crash and burn.

    ok enough rambling... get back to me with info dotty.
    ill get that to you tommorow. gotta take some nyquil.
    up in like 3 hours -_-

    Dot is this your computer ?

    HP Pavilion Slimline s5120Y with the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE / nForce 430 ????

    If so your power supply is going to limit you on what card you get.

    If you can, take the side panel off your tower and look at the label on the power supply. I need to know how many Watts it is.

    i'm really hoping it doesnt say this:


    Model# DPS 220AB-2 A, REV ( Kanji letters): 00F
    INPUT 100~127V, 6A, 200~240V, 3A
    OUTPUT 220W Max. <----------------------------

    3.3V-- / 16A +5.08--- /15A +12V--- /16A
    -12V --- /0.3A +5.08Vsb --- / 2A

    Let me know what you come up with.

    Here is a link to a general power supply label so you know what your looking for.

    You could give it a shot, i think it would be much better than what you have now. I hate to see you go from Nvidia to Ati tho. Sometimes.... not always people run into problems when they swap brands.

    Go for it and if you can back up your computer before you install. i think it will work out great for you. Those slim line Pcs are limited to what gfx cards people can run.

    Hold up!!

    look here.... This your rig right ?

    I would rather see you go with this card if you can swing it... It has more to offer and there is a 20$ mail in rebate. Also your not mixing you would be staying with Nvidia

    Its a 1Gig card too !! Huge PLUS
