What video card to use for small form factor

  1. I have 2 HP dc5000 small form factor PC's that have become increasingly taxed with CAD and Photoshop processing. Can anyone suggest what vide card I can use in a small form factor machine with no AGP only PCI slots available?

    Thanks

    I think the best you're gonna get is an NVIDIA FX 5500 if all you have is a PCI slot. I suppose that'll do okay with photoshop and CAD programs, though. Just don't expect to play any newer games. Here's one from newegg.com: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130255

    You can pick up an FX 5500 at WalMart, but it'll be almost twice the price.
