    LP 2D Benchmarking

    Hey guys I am just looking into getting a Low Profile 2D dedicated GPU for low power comsumption. What card should I get, or what series of card..?

    I wish the 3D field wasn't so CPU & GPU attached, it makes 3D benching expensive to get the good numbers..

    Most of the newer gpu's don't pull much power at the desktop, unlike the older cards did.

    The low end gf cards and radeons are still good though. I am not sure how the power phases on some of these hold up as you start approaching the upper limits of them though.

    Might try going to your local recycling center aswell, and picking through the junked computers for low profile graphics cards

    There's an ATI 4350 in the classies. I think it eats something like 20w at full burn.

    46xx, 56xx, 43xx. Those will all do fine. if you want Nvidia, then 8400 GS L.P. or a regular 8400GS.
