So i have a small dell tower that a friend wants a video car for. To play Fight Simulator
It has to have the following, looking for best card that meets this:
Low Profile Bracket
No External Power connection

BIG question - what's the power supply rated at? My parents have a tiny Dell Optiplex with a low-profile PCI-E slot just like the one you seem to be describing. Power supply is rated at 230 watts. I've never tried an external card, but you might want to be careful and check your store's return policy

There are beefier models - so check which one it is before jumping on anything. But for your reference: I ran a Radeon X800XL with a 250 watt standard Dell PSU with no problems.

EDIT yet again, lol. Reading the reviews says it should be fine. :)
