I have a HP s3100n Pavilion, and am looking into replacing the default 6150LE that is currently in the PCI-E 16x slot.

Does anyone know the size of the graphics card, and any other cards that are that size (or smaller)?

Thanks!

P.S. Someone in a review of the PC said go with the 8400GS or 8500GT, but do either fit inside the case?

6150LE? I thought that was the integrated card?

Get a 9400/9500 series card. They're cheap, relatively powerful, and about as small as you're going to get in a dedicated GPU these days.

my grandparents have the 6150LE, i don't remember, i believe it IS integrated. The case they got with it is VERY small, i think its called "micro-tower" or something. Your biggest problems would be heat, space, and power. Start at the lower models, and work your way up.

Currently, the 6150 is in the only PCI-E 16x slot, so I don't think it is integrated.

I am not sure if the 9400 or 9500 cards are too big, as my space is quite limited in the casing of my computer... I will look at those card however.

Thanks!

I really don't think the 6150 is a dedicated graphics card. This site says its integrated:

Very few store bought PCs have any dedicated cards, and I don't think I've ever heard of a 6150 that wasn't integrated.

You'll most likely have to find a card that comes with a low-profile bracket for the back plate, which is going to make finding a decent card rather difficult.

If you can, it'd help if you popped open the PC and took a picture of the inside\back area of the case where the cards would go. That way we can see how much room you have and if you need to have a low-profile card.

EDIT: Also, what do you need this upgrade for? If its for games, what games?
