hello i need up upgrade my graphics card but i have a problem im stuck with a 250 watt proprietary power supply in an HPdc5850 small form factor pc so i cant upgrade the psu i need a decent low profile gpu that can run resident evil 5 at a steady 65+ frames per second right now i get around 50 frames with my current 8600GT 512 med on medium settings also my cpu is an athlon 64 X2 5800+ heres the info from my psu sticker

+12volt 7.5 amps
+5.08volt 17 amps
+3.33volt 15 amps+12volt cpu 11.5 amps

so what im wondering is since most newer AMD gpu's require a 6 pin and since a pcie slot can only deliver 75 watts can i power the card via a pcie 6 pin cable from a second psu even tho my main psu only has 7.5 amps on the 12 volt rails

Are talking about the "HP Compaq dc5850 Microtower Business 

PC". I believe the PSU is there basic 300W unit that is found in most of there systems. It is put in 180 degrees from other HP towers with 150x140x88 dimensions.

I have heard of people using GPU built for laptops, maybe that is a direction you would take. I seen your other post on 7750.

Like I said heard of people using mobile gpu, but I don't know how they do it.

Some how you are going to have to upgrade the PSU to use most of the GPUs out there. Like the 5750 and 6670 have the 400 to 450 range.

It took me a while to find a PSU to fit my HP machine. Otherwise you are looking at replacing your box with something else.

It took me 2 months to get the one I have now. The biggest problem is company puts the dimension of the PSU in the specifications. I almost gave up when I found one on TigerDirect. I verified the size and it took all about 10 minutes to pull the old one out and slide the new one in. Hook up all the cables and add tie wraps so it looked professional.

the problem for me isnt the size or shape of the powersupply its the fact that the part that conects to the motherboard the molex conector is a standard 24 pin atx but the wires are in different places so a standard atx psu wont work as the pin outs are in different places

Well that really sucks, start a piggy bank for a new system.

I have started one for my next one, which will be used just for games. I not sure of using the Kaveri with FM2+ or the next gen FX chip. After Xmas anyway you look at it.

Have you sent our HP friends a question regarding the PSU.

I worked for a company that HP bought after I had retired. I had some bad experience with technical support there as well. Once they discovered I was a retired HP employee things changed.

I would continue to search for a PSU while saving up for a new system. I believe prices will come down closer to Xmas this year. Boost the PC sales around the release of 8.1 Windows.

I sorry you got a bad taste of overseas HP support but that is how it is done these days.
