    Graphics card for HP dc5700

    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

    PCIe x16 1.0 is the older standard, its now 2.0, meaning you will get slightly less performance than youc ould with any modern GPU you try and add.

    We can see from this spec sheet that the PSU is only 240Watts, so youre quite limited by the GPU you can even install.
