I recently bought an HP Compaq dc5700-SFF dual core machine for home use. It has Win 7 32 bit profesional loaded onto it.
My son wants to use this machine for study and also to run games on it. The graphics card supplied with the machine is pretty poor and I wanted to upgrade to a more capable card. The computer is classed as SFF – small form factor - so only low profile graphics cards can be accepted.
In the manual for this machine HP say that it has a PCIe x 16 1.0 slot but not all PCIe cards are supported.
It further says that cards must be ADD2 compatible.
Does anyone know which modern cards are available which will work with this machine?
(Graphics cards which HP have checked for use with the machine are shown below).
Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3000
DVI ADD2 SDVO single head graphics adapter (SDVO connector)
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 280 64 MB PCI dual head VGA
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 55 64 MB PCI low-profile DVI w/TV-out
