Hey guys :thumbsup:

I'm upgrading my video card for my dell GX280 SFF, I know I'm heavily limited on options here sadly. The power supply is tiny a long with the case but I have found a few cards which would fit, which is great.

I found a few good cards but I have no idea if my tiny power supply can handle them. You guys think the card below will work? I just wanted to double check all is clear before I consider buying it. Thanks in advance guys.


GeForce 8400GS PCI-E CARD 512MB LOW PROFILE

160 watt power supply standard in that model?
i think upgrading the video card may be pushing it.

I know it can be done as someone with a similar issue here seemed to get it working fine. Can someone tell me if the above card would work?

you are listing the same card that they tried in the other forum
again it is pushing the limits of the power supply
no one will back the statement that it is guaranteed to work
granted your power supply may be a strong one that will handle the load but on the other hand it may be a week one that does go pop.
