Replace Nvidia Geforce GT220 card


Standard Member
I have a Nvidia Geforce GT220 card in my Inspiron 545 mini tower that I want to upgrade and Im looking to spend around £130. Ive upgraded the power supply to 500w but I think that the issue is going to be the length of the card. I recently bought a MSI 6870 card but it proved to be too long in that I couldn't isnert it because the Hard disk connectors on the motherboard got in the way.

The GT220 is 6.6 inches long but I can take up to 7 inches. Any recomendations?

I don't think you are going to have much luck with this. Decent graphics cards are not going to be less than 8". The only ones that will fit will be a similar spec to the 220 you already have.
