I was thinking of picking up the i5 to make into a basic gaming machine but I don’t know much about it. I saw on the comments for a previous sale that someone said this may fit a GeForce GTX 750 Ti. Can anyone tell me if that would fit in this case and if the power supply would be adequate. Would this make an entry level gaming machine? Thanks!

I have the i5 version of this I use as the center of a Home Theatre setup using Win7 Media Center. I put in a small SSD for the OS, use the 2TB drive for data. Also put in a low profile graphics card and a dual channel TV Tuner. Works wonderfully for what I needed - small, quiet, and packs a punch.

I’m planning to do the exact same thing, though trying to avoid the graphics card. Time for some cord-cutting!

I’m not quite sure if the display port in this carries audio out http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Audio/sound-via-display-port-from-an-8200-elite-not-working/td-p/1378917. Display ports can carry audio out, but I think some of the earlier models didn’t. I bought this card for $20 from Ebay, fits perfect and does carry audio out on its display port. It’s a great upgrade over the integrated graphics, better for home theater.

Well then, video card purchasing I go. Thanks for the heads up as that would have killed me! Quality post for sure.

I don’t think so. It would need to occupy a single slot- see image


This card is not made in a single slot design for a half height card that I could see. The person who said it may fit may have been thinking in terms of the mini tower, and not the Small form factor that is offered today.

GTX 750 Ti is 60 watts TDP, the CPU is about 100 watts TDP. The other stuff in your system might take another 20-30 watts. The PS is rated at 240 watts max- this is pretty tight by my standards. Ideally PS have their maximum efficiency at around 40-60% of max load.

This is probably the most powerful gaming card you could get for this computer. It’s pretty minimal as far as gaming cards go and has about 1/2 of the performance of the GTX 750 Ti.VisionTek Radeon HD 7750 SFF graphics card - Radeon HD 7750 - 1 GB

running 3 video screens with this video card:
GTX 750 Ti OC Low Profile 2 GB
Gigabyte Graphics Cards GV-N75TOC-2GL

uses 2 slots which was fine for me

Thank you for taking the time to look into that for me. I appreciate it!

So you were able to fit this card


in this MB


Did you change out the Heatsink on the CPU? I don’t see how the fan assembly from the graphics card would not bump into the CPU heatsink. The single slot graphics card barely fits with much room left

It appears to me, just looking at the image you provided, that there is an empty slot on the bottom. If this is true you should be able to put the card in that slot and have plenty of room.

The videocard orientation extends to the left not to the right of the videocard PCB board. It would bump into the heatsink of the CPU, unless it was a very short card. The single slot card I have in extends past the heatsink to the right of it, if my card were a double slot it would not fit in there with that heatsink there.

I just pulled the trigger on this, as it seems to be a pretty good deal for my intended purpose, but I’m hoping you wooters can confirm or maybe advise me to cancel. Essentially I just am needing a basic, but reliable and not slow as molasses PC at home for web browsing, media storage, occasional streaming, MS office usage and kids homework. Will this suffice and is it a good price? Thanks!

Does anyone know if this PC has an available PCIe slot for a Sound Blaster Audigy card with low-profile bracket?

The I5-2400 is a very capable processor despite being older. The passmark is 5842. The graphics HD2000 on this is dated, but for what you listed- it will work fine. I do highly recommend buying an SSD drive for this- maybe something like this Toshiba OCZ Trion 150 240GB. Clone the OS to this drive, then use the 2TB drive as storage. You’ll notice a world of difference in performance.

I greatly appreciate your feedback and advice. I will look into that route as it sounds like a solid plan to build an improved and affordable machine. Thanks!

No problem. Good luck. This can help you out if you decide to clone.http://www.howtogeek.com/199068/how-to-upgrade-your-existing-hard-drive-in-under-an-hour/

How much trouble is it to find Win7 drivers? I plan to scrape it and do a clean Win7 install
