Hardware suggestions for an inspiron 530s

Recommended Posts

i have a dell inspiron 530s, its a slim tower desktop, im wondering what cards i could get that would work with it, and as well as any psu's. low profile cards being the main ones im looking for. open to all suggestions. all i really want to do is play arma on decent settings, or even arma 2. im not looking for ultra realism, or being able to see five miles away, view distance isnt a big issue for me right now, i just want to play this game with a few friends, but i dont want to be working with the bare minimum if that makes any sense. thanks everyone. also, i've got a budget to work with, of about $300. any opinions about the cheap $60-$80 low profile 54XX series cards from ati? i've seen a guy on youtube running cryisis in a 530s with a low profile card. thanks comrades!

ok, looking at buying a radeon 6670 low profile card. for around $100 it runs alot of the modern games so hopefully it will at least run arma/arma2
